might be the rawest pic I ever seen. and he got a bag of chips in his hand
THIS IS SO FUCKING METAL
With his dreads and his american flag shirt, this is everything
I want this to be one of those photos that lasts forever you know
"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.
I had some choice thoughts about terrorism today
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
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
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!
