I have come to the realization that as a young black woman I am ALONE in both of my faculties. Political Science at my university is dominated by white men. Women’s and Gender Studies is dominated by white women…they hire token POC in contract positions, but none of these womyn are ever kept on as full-time faculty. It’s so shady because these contract instructors do not receive...
Cosmo Sex Tip #720
When he gets hard, lift him up and break his back over your knee. Tell him that when Gotham is ashes, he has your permission to cum.

annienopanties: today on my way home, a lady stopped me to compliment my locs. She had a patchy low cut sprinkled with greys but I didnt pay much attention to it. She asked about my natural hair journey and showed me pictures of her old locs, grazing the small of her back. When i asked why she cut them… Usually it’s best to ask someone how they’re doing now. Sometimes just...
sapphrikah: mizdamid: This is pretty much a response to the whole #howtobeterrell thing, and the importance of education. FIND ME A MOTHERFUCKING MOMENT WHERE TERRELL HAS SAID “YOU GUYS [AFRICANS] ARE HORRIBLE PEOPLE.” This chick is killing me, KILLING ME. What was she saying about the “gene code” and her ancestors not getting caught? You think that’s something to...
ladyatheist: “If you’re white, you’re white. If you’re colored, you go with colored people.” That line was uttered within the first 30 seconds of the video. Racism just isn’t in the south people. What Would You Do segments are really good at pointing out the latent racism in society. If you want to know why PoC are so mistrustful of white people, just wait until about four minutes in. The...

naturalgurlsroc: So i’ve been getting really frustrated with my hair lately. I started my loc journey back in November (4 months ago) and it just didn’t seem to be going the way i wanted. While there are sections of my hair that seems to be mating up and locking fine other sections such as the front where my hair… I also started my locs in November and it hasn’t been easy but I...

neverwillstop: The natural hair movement is for Black people, whose natural hair (Afros, dreadlocks, twists, braids, etc.) is not widely accepted by society. You know whose “natural” hair is accepted? The Eurocentric (white) standard: straight! I don’t give a fuck if you happen to have curly hair. If you are… Umm no. “Natural hair” is just that…natural hair....

sapphrikah: First of all, misandry, like reverse-racism, doesn’t exist. And no amount of man-hating from me can do SHIT to harm male privilege. And the mere fact that, idk, complaining about street harassment and the behavior of men gets me labeled a man-hater frequently and with so much disgust SHOWS how… I wanted to see the antonym to misandry and found Dictionary.com trolling....
KNOTTY GIRL: ; dreadlock bigotry →
Hmm I just read through your post. I usually lurk through the tags, but I don’t even update my own Tumblr. However, I felt the need to reblog/respond. First, the very example you gave of “queer” being appropriated is not really pertinent to this discussion because the word was reclaimed and reappropriated by the LGBTQ community. That is different from simple appropriation, which...
What’s the point of eating junk foods with 30% less fat etc? I was looking forward to eating Oreos until I bit into one and realized it was the supposedly healthier kind…It tastes like ass. If I wanted a healthier choice, I’d eat a celery stick dammit!
Trigger Warning: Body Shaming
lagrandefille: Screencap from the conversation. I don’t even know where to begin with how disgusted I am with the things that was said. While I agree that this woman doesn’t deserve my friend’s kindness whatsoever, being fat seems to be the only thing they addressed. Not the fact that she stalked her. Not the fact that she was verbally insulting her. I’m just so disappointed. Let’s...
