lalameansiloveyou asked: I seriously LOVE reading your blog, but I have to ask about the preference/anti-black thing. I have found all types of men throughout my life attractive, but is it really anti black to say I prefer blue eyes on a man? Or to say that I prefer white guys?? I love my men of color, but I just find white guys more attractive. And not just because of the color of their skin. Is that wrong?? Where is the line between preference and anti-black because I definitely don't EVER want to be anti-black
think about your reasons as to why you prefer one over the other and assess for yourself what you are.
But at the end of the day, do whatever you want, don’t nobody really care
I never really understood this preference thing. Like, what is it about white men that you enjoy so much that black men don’t have and can’t fulfill? And by finding white guys more attractive, what is it that attracts you? Is it a physical thing? Is it their noses, skin color, hair texture, hair style, hair color, eye color, jaw shape, body build etc that you’ve deemed attractive? And naming those things do you think all white guys have them? If no, how can you say “white guys” are more attractive when a good number of white guys won’t have those physical things you find attractive. And do you think black guys can’t have those things? Like, I’ve never seen a nose shape distinct to white people. I’ve never seen a hair color, texture or style that only white guys can have. I’ve never seen an eye color that only white guys have. What is it about white guys?
I don’t think people are honest with themselves when they say, “it’s just a preference and it’s not about race” because it surely is.
And before you go on assuming I’m just hating on the white guys, just know I’m not. I’ve dated a few and have slept with a few. I’m not saying white guys can’t be attractive I’m just saying be honest with yourself when you think they’re more attractive, as a whole, than any other men.
gaiaphagee asked: I actually think what the Jews went through is so much worse than the slave trade. You do realize that it was Africans giving their own people up, don't you? The living conditions were terrible and many were murdered just like the Jews. And it's not like blacks were slaughtered by the millions; Also, there have been slaves/ oppressed people in almost every society throughout history and to discriminate against white people just because of what happened in America is seriously so ignorant.
Reading this angered me so much, I don’t give a flying duck if you are black yourself don’t you ever in your life trivialise slavery again you ignorant little twit. You clearly have a huge amount of internalised racism and it’s disgusting that you decided to come here and spout off these untruths. A quick google would have told you how wrong you are. You should honestly be ashamed of yourself.
lucifers-kittykat asked: Isn't it worth considering that, even though Jewish and Celtic people are white passing today and have white privilege today, this is a fairly recent thing and both of those groups share common experience with POC groups (such as colonialization, ethnic cleansing, being culturally stereotyped and othered, etc.)?
European Jews participated in the slave trade a lot more than people know due to the fact that no one wants to teach that part of history, and the Irish went through shit but not what PoC have went through and are still going through. Sure it may be recent that they are afforded white privilege but PoC are not nor have ever been afforded that so you can’t really equate persecuted white people to PoC.
I don’t particularly like the idea of “My struggle was/is worse so you’re invalid”.
They’re not saying their feelings are invalid, that person is definitely allowed to feel what they feel. but rather that you just CANNOT compare the atrocities done to those two separate groups of people, especially since the persecution of PoC is stil ever so prevalent.
Or even better, stop comparing struggles. O.o. last time I checked, that was never productive.
First off, the question was brought to me comparing the two already to which I said that you cannot equate them. Nor did i say anyone was invalid, I said they are still white and their struggle does not take that away. What are you all reading?
It will probably come off as offensive to people with conservative religious views. In a world such as this to say God is “Black” and then to say God is a “Woman” is double blasphemy lolI’ve seen shirts with this quote and I thought it was fly!“I Met God And She’s Black”Beautiful Woman in the picture with her fly ass #Ankara headwrap!! NYAME YE OHENE!!!

AFRICANGLOBE – Arab gangs are threatening to kill and sell the organs of African migrants if relatives refuse to pay ransoms in time. European crime agency Europol has said the migrants are being kidnapped by criminals who then demand family and friends living in Europe pay thousands of euros for their release.
friendly reminder that white girls wear weaves by the millions. don’t believe the hype and don’t buy the bullshit that only black women wear weave. get that weak shit out of here, jesse.
weave by the POUND!
weave by the KILOS, DAMMIT!
That’s not the point though. The point is that we are clamoring for a texture that does not grow from our scalps. White women’s weaves simply mimc their natural texture. The vast majority of ours do not.
And the suggestion that we can our straighten our hair is invalid. Straightened AA hair resembles a good yaki at best.
^^^^Thank you. I think people get the point they just stick to the “white people do it too” cop out because you can’t argue the other, and they can’t fathom not bringing white people up in conversations about the Black community getting our shit together.
A scene from the film “Trick Baby” (based off of the Iceberg Slim novel of the same name) where a White ‘Liberal’ explains to a White ‘Conservative’ why giving Blacks hope is a better tactic of control than making us hopeless; and why promoting intelligent Blacks prevents intelligent Black leadership/resistance.
How are you a part of an intelligent Black resistance struggle?
Here is a textbook example of lazy western journalism.
The Guardian recently published an article on Boko Haram. However, the lead image they used was from the Niger Delta. The image is of a pipeline explosion and people on a canoe. I’ve been around my fair share of photo and newsdesk editors, so I know how they think. The writer of the article probably had nothing to do with the image, that was most likely an editor’s decision. The editor probably only used this image because it has an explosion, even though the explosion has nothing to do with Boko Haram and the location of the pictured explosion is not even in the same region of Nigeria where Boko Haram operates. It’s literally at opposite ends of the country. But any picture of an explosion will do.
This is what happens when you don’t have diverse newsdesk editors. No Nigerian (or anyone with a cursory knowledge of Nigeria) would make this kind of mistake.
The same thing goes on with white journalists who are supposed “West Africa experts”, yet they don’t know the difference between Nigerian and Nigerien. Despite these constant mistakes, these white people all have jobs. There are black people who have been fired for far less.
Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York. Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.
Andrews was arrested in April 2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.
*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*
The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.
FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says.
Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”.
Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

White People and Black people who seek acceptance from White people hate when you talk about racism and the evil history of Amerikkka.
"It’s foolish to allow your Oppressor to convince you to forget about what they have done to you"
They robbed, raped, brainwashed. degraded, enslaved, and destroyed Black Civilization. And Yall mad at me for bringing it up?
Black people are STILL not free and they STILL have a system in place to destroy us. Keyword: STILL. Therefore until the system is dismantled there will always be a need to challenge it.
I totally understand that you got your “good job”, money, and white friends but don’t say shit to me or get upset because you don’t want to offend them. If they ain’t trying to help you tackle the system then they are for the system of oppression. Peace!
