if you think black women wearing their hair natural is unprofessional you are racist.
if a white woman worked in a store with hair she hadnt brushed and called it her “natural” hair it would still be unprofessional.
A black woman’s natural hair is of the same quality as a white woman’s unkempt hair.
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
My eyes chink when I laugh
I don’t really understand the trend by white people to use racial slurs to describe themselves.
Why on earth would you want to use a word that has been used and continues to be used to insult, demean, and devalue Asians?

Black People hate white people for WHAT THEY DO. White people hate Black People for WHO WE ARE. That’s the difference. That is why Keke is wrong. When we hate, we’re hating the violence done unto to us. When we hate, we’re hating the system that allows for corrupt terrorists to hold more power, over an disenfranchised group. When we hate, we’re hating how our culture is mocked, and dehumanized but is then stolen and sold to us for a fee while being told we’re beneath the very culture we created. When we hate, it’s cause our Blackness is viewed as an inherent difference that is negative, and evil. Black hate is the result of white hatred. Hate Doesn’t Breed More Hate, one hate (white hate) caused and continues to cause violence, and dehumanization against a group of people. The other is logical, and emotional conditioning formed out of centuries, and present day reinforcement of Black oppression. -bitteroreo
OkCupid founder Christian Rudder recently posted some of these snapshots on the website’s blog, reviewing how race affects OkCupid users’ behavior. In short: As much as people would like to believe that they are open-minded, a potential partner’s racial background plays a huge part in OkCupid’s matches.
dear people of tumblr, i just want to let you know that this is not okay:
it really irks me when i see people who are outside of my culture/race/heritage/etc use day of the dead makeup and such as halloween costumes. i don’t attempt to speak for everyone, but i know i’m not alone in this.
dia del los muertos is not yours to borrow when it becomes convenient.
what it is: two day long celebration (november first and second) of life and death. it’s not a “trendy” or “creepy” holiday, it’s a serious time of the year in which we come together with our families and respect our dead. we visit graves, we make alters, we make offerings, we make delicious bread and sugar skulls, we respect our loved ones through our actions of affection.
what it is not: halloween.
when you paint your face in this way it is offensive.
there are many reasons why face paint is used during dia de los muertos, and making a fashion statement is absolutely not one of them. it is believed that people paint their faces in lieu of carrying their loved one’s skull to honor (and sometimes even to summon) them. there are also traditions of becoming a live skeleton as a means to mourn the dead while recognizing that you too shall die.
when you paint your face like a sugar skull to look cute and cultured, you are mocking my mexican traditions.
going through the dia de los muertos tag i see so many folks painted up like it’s the hip thing to do, and it’s not, not at all. i get that you are inspired~ by it, but you are actually doing a disservice to an entire group of people when you make yourself up like that.
so anyway, i just wanted to let you guys know.
what even is the second picture?
no but seriously, what is the second picture? how about you pull your fucking head out of your ass and educate less informed people instead of using their lack of knowledge to prove a point jfc.
stop perpetuating the ignorance and just fucKING TELL US.
Oh you mad huh?
Ask your grandparents.
