If only somebody would listen to this…

True story: I once posted this to my Facebook, only to unwittingly start a lengthy and hilarious ‘debate’ with an annoying Conservative friend of a friend. Highlights of the ‘debate’ included him trying to convince me, a UK citizen, that the UK isn’t part of Europe, and him ending the conversation with this gem:

"You know who else had free housing, free healthcare and access to a variety of benefits? Slaves."

you’ve never heard that “taxes are slavery” thing before?

someone ship me to Noridia

Sweden- Where our education is free, but you can’t pee standing up.

Method Man - I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By feat. Mary J. Blige (1995) 

Nothin’ make a man feel better than a woman
Queen with a crown that be down for whatever
There are few things that’s forever, my lady

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”


I don’t think people understand how hard it is for some of us black women to date. And I’ll even get more specific: Dark skinned black women.

I’ve liked so many men and women but I never pursued them in the past because I’d hear them say they weren’t interested in dark skinned women. Do you know how much that hurts? Someone you think is really sweet, respectful, and awesome turns out to be another individual who is disgusted by your appearance?

The less you eat, drink and buy books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorise, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save – the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor rust will devour – your capital. The less you are, the less you express your own life, the more you have, i.e., the greater is your alienated life, the greater is the store of your estranged being.
bummerpunxx asked: yo, super into this blog for the most part, but let's stop pretending that every white person is the fucking devil. there are racist white people, and there are non-racist white people who are ashamed of the history AND present treatment of persons of color. white men and women who have been protesting the unethical treatment or minorities in america, and around the world. change is slow and difficult, but pretending that any person with white skin is evil is only slowing the process.





White guy from st. louis needs to unfollow us.

"…minorities in america, and around the world."

That line reminded me of this Louis CK bit about the white man going to Africa and talking about all the minorities there.

i remember the first time i watched south park, louis 

Some white Americans go to Black and Brown countries and refer to the people there as “minorities”. I actually discussed this on twitter not long ago. A white man will go to an African country and will refer to the people as African-Americans. They don’t mean Black Americans either. African-American means anyone who is Black to them. It’s interchangeable and it’s synonymous in their world. Many white people think it’s a universal term. They use African-American like the use minorities; it’s a blanket, all encompassing term in their mind.

They’re basically incapable of viewing the world without whiteness centralized and they don’t even realize it. It makes them think they are the default and they think they are larger than they actually are. They’re more people in Nigeria, Ethiopia, DRC and Egypt combined than all of Western Europe.

One thing that happens when you centralize whiteness and otherize everyone else is that white people will lose perspective and scope. It’s why a white person can open their mouth and talk about helping minorities not just in America, but around the world. Poor things don’t know that they are the minorities of the world…lol
