"without us you wouldn’t have any rights!" without you we wouldn’t have to fight for them

Always this. Always.

"Remember that men gave women the right to vote!"

And remember that men should never have been at such a social and political advantage as to be able to literally give and take away rights from groups of people.

There are over 526 million black women in the world, all with different appearances, and your racist ass is going to say not liking black women is a ‘preference’, when the only damn thing they all got in common physically is their blackness? Sure, honey.

Ending white supremacy isn’t really in the American vocabulary. That is because ending white supremacy does not merely require a passive sense that racism is awful, but an active commitment to undoing its generational effects. Ending white supremacy requires the ability to do math—350 years of murderous plunder are not undone by 50 years of uneasy ceasefire.
At some point, being Black became profitable to anyone and everyone who wasn’t, in fact, Black.

the colorblind ideology implies that it is necessary to overlook a person’s race in order to acknowledge their humanity

i love how racists say they have an “unpopular opinion” like um no actually your opinion is so popular that there is an entire structure of oppression based around it that controls the entire country cool story

I’m noticing a trend.

did y’all forget about

and

and

Oh yes, that grand fantasy where POC (mainly black people) allow that one special “down ass” white person to become a part of the clique.

Poc as pets and props 101 

this is what I was talking about yesterday when I was hollerin bout the fetishization of black bodies in white culture

black bodies exist as pieces

black bodies are sex and servitude and spirituality and swag to be dissected and consumed

the mere general proximity of a black body to a white one conveys to the viewer that the white actor has some sort of ability to transverse cultural lines

smh

Let’s not forget fashion’s use of PoC props to contrast how Glamorous the white person is compared to the poor PoC

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
