Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle
why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever
white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…
white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up
white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads
"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???
All of this. ALL OF THIS. READ THIS ^^^^^^
White people didn’t invent straight hair either. There are Black people with straight hair. That’s not a “White style”.
And I could see any hard core horse riding enthusiast going “What are you doing!? That’s not how you ride!”
I guess he’s trying to blend in and not be the
centaur of attention
- me: i don't even care. i'm not going to talk about this anymore.
- me: and you know what else? [2000 word rant]
you're depressed? have you tried yoga?!?!?
*neurotypical voice*: “Hey, I Understand That These Symptoms Inhibit Your Ability To Function In Society Without Triggering Paranoia, But Have You Tried Yoga?”
This needs to be brought to attention IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
I don’t even understand what they’re expecting anymore. if they can lie to us to our face and us KNOW the truth, what power do we have , then?
People who use a lack of education to justify subjecting poor people to poverty are fucking revolting. They’ve invented a system wherein poor people cannot obtain a quality education because they are poor and then they use that lack of education to justify their continued poverty. It’s self-sustaining, vile, oppressive, and a fundamental tenet of modern American conservativism.
Hey sorry I was wondering if you could tell me what's going on in Scotland, just wanna be informed, I've seen a lot of posts but I'm not entirely sure what's happening, sorry
on Thursday we had a referendum on whether or not we were to go independent from the uk and their crooked Westminster rulings.
The result was 55% no (stay in the uk) and 45% yes (leave the uk) . The no voters won the referendum but some of them still went along with the orange order to George Square in Glasgow fully knowing there was a yes rally going on there as the yes campaign had been peacefully gathering there for a few days.
The no voters started causing trouble,
burning Scottish flags,
surrounding young women and physically harming them because they had Scottish flags (https://t.co/azaQBRmPS2) ,
they attacked one woman who was pushing a child in a pram because she had a yes sign flag on the pram. (https://38.media.tumblr.com/83763106687e97fd15e52a8b61a438a5/tumblr_nc61yuEJU41tkulg7o1_1280.png)
they started giving Nazi salutes (https://twitter.com/jonfaec/status/513073434902138880/photo/1 ).
That somehow progressed into these people going around attacking anyone who was non-white or supported independence. chasing the yes voters out of the square with fireworks and flares,( http://samwisegamgee.co.vu/post/97920983330/rhetoricandtreason-ugly-and-terrifying-scenes) (https://33.media.tumblr.com/0f478776fc6bc6a65617aaead93f622b/tumblr_nc61yuEJU41tkulg7o2_1280.png)
they set fire to the herald building which is the only newspaper to openly support independence (http://samwisegamgee.co.vu/post/97921067065/clears-kawaii-booty-according-to-sources-no)
, rumours of a 17 year being stabbed and its been deemed unsafe to go out in Glasgow wearing any yes shirts/badges/flags and to take down any yes signs from your house for your own safety, we have been forced to be silent about our opinion in the biggest and most important political event in our country in years because it could affect our safety.
theres a livestream of the square it might have calmed down by now but i’m pretty sure you can go back and watch some of it ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86lrybeUXIg
also our first minister and leader of the yes campaign has resigned
and theres an orange walk later today which is a totally bad idea because their presence will probably cause this unionist aggression to get worse.
The bbc and other mainstream media sources haven’t been covering the riots at all . They basically got us to stay in Britain then abandoned us when we needed them not even 24 hours later. People are being hurt and lives could be in danger and theres a british media blackout, the only coverage ive seen is on the twitter feed of a local radio station and social media platforms. The bbc have chosen to ignore a fight of racism, fascism, and straight up abuse. and I don’t think any of us is going to forget that any time soon.
To answer your question of whats going on? we honestly don’t know, the no party have already won the vote so why are they causing riots? nobody has a fucking clue .
some of those links for the sources have footage of people being blatantly attacked so please be cautious if you are triggered in any way by violence.
(I hope you don’t mind me publishing this because a few people have asked me about it and I think this would help some people understand)
Like you couldn’t get a Japanese girl to be on the cover of Vogue Japan’s anniversary…
Devon Aoki would have been a perfect choice.
And a big fuck you to the Daily Mail for sexualizing Geishas.
Where are the white feminists?
oh right you’re silent, you’re always silent.
