In response to anyone who thinks they have an fierce inner black woman in them and is not in fact, a black woman
See the thing about that fire and that “fierceness” is that it’s born out of our oppression, out of always being told that we are ugly, that our bodies are too fat or too muscular, that we don’t have the right kind of hair — and having to deconstruct all those things and tell ourselves that we are beautiful even though society is telling us that we are not.
That strength is born out of always having to defend ourselves against white supremacy and anti-black-woman-patriachy. From years of not seeing ourselves represented in anything aligned with beauty, of buying products that are made to make us look like not ourselves.
So there is no way you could have an inner black woman in you. You have not experienced our struggle, you don’t know it, you haven’t lived it, and you can’t imagine it.
See, you can’t sit with us, because we haven’t been able to sit at your table since our existence in this country. And while we were being excluded from your table we made our own, and it is fabulous and fly. And of course you now want to try and have a seat at our table, take our table, use it and ignore all the labor that went into creating THAT table.
But nah, sorry boo boo.
You ain’t never going to be us, you can try to wear your hair like us, you can try to dance like us, talk like us, wish you were us, but know this —

I NEED FEMINISM BECAUSE…
MY DIRECTOR ASKED ALL THE MEN ON STAFF (INCLUDING A BUSBOY THAT HAD ONLY BEEN EMPLOYED FOR TWO WEEKS) TO BE MANAGER BEFORE ASKING ANY FEMALE EMPLOYEES - SOME WHO HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED FOR TWO YEARS.
The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.
This is beautiful.
I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.
I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it
"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"
"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"
"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"
"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."
"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"
this man is probably so ashamed that 50 years later he is in the same spot again
This is so sad. To be alive for two points in history, 50 years apart, and see absolutely no progress
oh my god press ‘shift’ and then ‘?’

WOW if your definition of “creative” is spewing the same offensive, racist, misogynist homophobic transphobic ableist garbage that literally everyone else is putting out then you really are not that creative!!!! if you honestly think that representing a diverse group of people in a positive light kills your creativity and limits you then you are in the fucking wrong profession and you should just jettison yourself into the sun simple as that
