tbh all the white ppl i know who truly understand racism to the best of their ability, have never asked me “do you hate white people???”

cause they actually listened to me and figured out that i hate white supremacy, not individual white people for simply being white

Don’t let white america make you ashamed of African American culture.

takeprideinyourheritage:

Big hoop earrings, gold teeth, rap/hiphop, fried chicken, watermelon, KoolAid, headwraps, slang (ebonics), twerkin, afros, locs, braids, talking loud, etc is all apart of our culture, whether you wanna believe it or not. Next time you feel ashamed of or don’t want to accept something in our culture cuz white america says “its not appropriate” just think; if we had our own land, with just us, would it still be shameful?

Students of color are allowed to enter the classroom but never on an equal footing. When they walk in, they are subject to the same racial stereotypes and expectations that exist in the larger society. Students of color do not have the advantage of walking into a classroom as individuals; they walk in as black, brown, [yellow] or red persons with all the connotations such racialization raises in the classroom. They do not walk into a classroom where the curriculum embraces their histories. They walk into a classroom where their histories and cultures are distorted, where they feel confused about their own identities, vulnerabilities, and oppressions. There is no level of liberal reforms that can alter these experiences for students of color without directly challenging the larger systems in society.

Saying you don’t like black woman cause they have “hostile qualities” is like constantly jabbing a lion with a stick and when it finally fucks your shit up, everyone blames the lion and says it wild, crazy, and hostile. There’s nothing wrong with black women. They’re just sick of you jabbing at them.

Respectability politics are so trash. Black men/Latinos in hoodies and baggy pants don’t deserve to be shot or mistreated just like women in short skirts don’t deserve to be raped. Any idiot with two brain cells to rub together would know that Martin Luther King was murdered in a suit and women in the 1800’s that were wearing long, complicated, thick ass dresses were still sexually assaulted. Stop that nonsense.
