Why I’d Rather Be Called a Black American Than an African-American

kingjaffejoffer:

This is not one of those “us vs. them” articles with a divisive tone. Nor is it written as flame bait to get people arguing. It’s very even handed and non-confrontational despite the title.

I’ve always felt like this, its cool to see others who feel like I do.

"So, what do people say when they see the tattoos?""They think I’m crazy""Are you?""Nah, I just like body art"He had a certainty about himself.

"That’s a pretty bold sticker, why do you like Obamacare?""I think that healthcare is a right and Obamacare is a step in that right direction, it may not be perfect but it’s the best step we’ve had in at least a century. I wish that both parties would work at fixing it instead of sabotaging a good thing- you’re playing with people’s lives over petty politics."

Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

lordbape:

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

I have an issue

2am-poetry:

I’m bad at being emotionally available

I am emotionally secure and okay

but I don’t let people in unless it comes naturally

and I guess in this day and age it’s unacceptable or rude 

to do that to your friends

so I’ve lost friends for seeming distant, but I was there

I was close

but far away in my head 

and my heart

If you fault me, I understand

but I can will not force myself to open up

I’ve found that my soul always shows itself with time so

please

be patient with me.

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Always reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people

I swear tumblr made me a better person

DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.
