Hello world. Word of caution: I post any AND everything relevant of how I feel or what's on my mind. I've been "natural" since Aug of '12. I'm a mother, a lover, a child of The Great I Am. A college under graduate, web-comic geek, tumblr addict, grammar head and so on. I'm a strange one, but to know me is to love me. Feel free to message me too. Enjoy my page! :) Peace & Love.

I'm here to ask you if wearing ANY kind of braid is considered "cultural appropriation" (not just cornrows or dreads and etc). Seriously, I have met people on the internet that think black people are the only ethnicity that invented or ever wore braids and I was like "wtf?!". Thank you.

But Who Will Think of The White People: I

#butwhowillthinkoftheWhitepeople

But who will think of the white people?

A Black cast?
With afros in a tizzy
gleaming in robust grease
overly decorated in 
black red and green
dripping a slang too slick
for white speak
in front of tables with
red koolaid and seasoned fried chicken
and greens beans that’s been 
stewed in hamhocks
I  mean how could the white people
plant themselves there
won’t they feel utterly ridiculous
languid and obtuse?

and how will they purchase jeans
and hair care products
and foundations in tan
and who will teach them
how to cry neatly?

Won’t someone think of the white people?
and the constant rattling of Black songs
and stories that don’t sound like them
Who will think of them when 
some full bodied curly haired diva
belts the tumbling notes of an anthem
that doesn’t weep for them
tell me you’ll think of the white people and be soft

who will teach their daughters
to love men they are only waiting for
without an adequate number 
of cartoon movie princesses
or their sons that the world is theirs 
with a black man behind a podium and not bars
how dare we make them a side dish
in a melting pot

This is not the land the forefathers
promised them
Tell them that we understand
28 days of reading the stories of heros
that didn’t rescue them
must be uncomfortable
that we understand 
that no one remembers the soft places
of a villain
we get it

how naked one must feel after being uprooted
from place you knew with your skin
this amount of suffering must be
hard

who will think of the White people when us
Black and Brown folk are laughing
and our mouths are full with rejoice
it must be so cruel
to not be in on the joke

how dare we question
how dare we invade
how dare we ask for an apology
how dare we win
in a race
we were 40 acres and a mule behind
we know
it must be sickening

won’t you think of the White people 
and be kind
kiss their palms and be easy 
their hearts must be so open 

—D

This. Was. Is. Absolutely. Phenomenal.

The thirst

African American Proverb; Is your throat dry? Do you suddenly need a Gatorade?  Because by your overly exuberant excitement for the person you have a crush on it’s making you look mighty thirsty.  (via blackproverbs)

She DID that!

Make it your job and duty to compliment, encourage, motivate, and love another Black person.

Police: Man who fired officer's gun at city hall was high on mushrooms, had 'superhuman strength'

chescaleigh:

sonofbaldwin:

Get into this.

An 18-year-old white dudebro high on mushrooms breaks into a government building acting wild as fuck.

Dudebro goes BUCK on several police officers.

During his all-out bucktitude, he manages to break out of handcuffs and grab a police officer’s gun.

HE FIRES OFF A SHOT from this gun.

A gang of the keystone cops finally subdue him and take his precious ofay ass off to be booked.

NOW.

Let’s imagine how this shit would have gone down if dudebro was black:

"Police officers shot and killed a black man acting erratically in a government building yesterday. They fired a total of 1,169 times. They said he made furtive movements and that his keys looked like a gun. An autopsy revealed that the man was on crack, heroin, and the marijuana, and his blood alcohol was 856 times the legal limit. Police say he has a criminal record dating back to 1956, before even his parents were born."

This is implicit and institutionalized white supremacy in action.

Next up, we’ll find out about what a good kid he was. Right?

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.
