the fucking worst is when people are like “you hate people for having a different opinion than you!!!!” like im not shitting on this guy because he thinks pistachio ice cream is gross im shitting on him because he actually believes that i and people like me dont deserve basic human rights and respect and safety
You can tell so much about a person by the way they leave you.
why is it ok for white people to define the standards of beauty, but whenever a black women even begins to love her natural hair it’s considered “exclusive” or “cocky”?
why is it called “ghetto” or “ratchet” whenever i embrace styles natural to my culture but it’s “classy” and “alternative” when a white girl in Vogue does it?
why is “being black” a phase for white people (who then can always go back to being white again and still receive the benefits of their privilege) but it’s something i need to tone down in order to get a job?
why is it that i have/still get denied access into public places because of my natural hair and skin color?
why is it that a black boy with a hoodie is considered “dangerous” when a white boy with a gun is called “emotionally unstable”?
why is it that we must never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust or Pearl Harbor but i’m supposed to get over the effects of slavery?
why is it ok for white people to talk about their 1/3 German, 1/4 French, etc roots, but the rest of us are “immigrants” who need to “go back where we came from”?
why is it that Ebola has been killing brown people for years, but it’s suddenly curable when someone with white skin contracts it?
basically white people will spend so much time worried about stupid shit like why they cant use other cultures as fashion or why they cant say the n word…
So go ahead and rock your box braids..nobody is stopping you..the rest of us will be busy dodging the system of oppression that’s forced upon us every single day…It just seems like double standards to me.
but i mean shouldn’t basic human rights be available for everyone???
