Why is it so hard for you to get cultural appropriation. Why.

Choosing not to brush my hair is not disrespectful to anybody’s culture in any way. Why can’t you see we’re all earthlings?

Do you, lady ! Your dreads are amazing. These blackies are just mad that you our hair is beautiful and you are able to have beautiful normal hair when you’re done with it

Ew what the fuck is that comment

whoa whoa no. Dreads are fine no matter your race but calling people ‘Blackies’ is an absolute NO. And saying they will be jealous because they would have ‘normal’ hair after??? All hair is normal hair?? ?

Racism is never ever ever okay. 

They’re racists against whites for not letting us have dreads. When their shit colored smelly hair is in dreads then it’s fine I guess but we can’t?

"THESE BLACKIES"

"SHIT COLORED SMELLY HAIR"

This is what I love about open racists.

At least you know who the enemy is.

This is why I’m beginning to say “no” to white folks with dreads…

””blackies are just mad”

"beautiful normal people hair when you’re done”

"their shit colored smelly hair

When people ask why many Black people are vehemently opposed to white people wanting to be a part of the natural hair movement, remember these statements. Remember that this is not just about hair, but about the stigma and hatred we face for embracing it. It’s about a willful lack of understanding or respect.

One headline perfectly captures the U.S. media’s Israel problem

Cairo-based photojournalist Mosa’ab Elshamy caught this headline from the Monday edition of the Baltimore Sun that seems to capture Palestinian sympathizers’ frustration with mainstream media coverage of the ongoing conflict in Gaza. While Israeli combat fatalities are given up-front attention, Palestinian fatalities are brushed off as “others.”

Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.
That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

I’m also intrigued by which countries voted “abstain.” Weird how the EU doesn’t seem to want to get involved …

Press TV’s Gaza correspondent breaks down while covering Israeli killing of Palestinian children

Gaza is receiving no international aide as they are being slaughtered by Israel. Egypt has closed off it’s borders, won’t even extract medically injured persons or deliver medical supplies. Only let in Gazans with foreign passports. Civilians, kids, women, doctors, paramedics, are being murdered. my heart is so heavy and even though I am far from well off just living on American soil makes me feel so guilty rn. what a horrendous account of human rights violations occurring, and just look at those in power silently watching.

This is important.
What is happening is unacceptable. Please continue to spread information.

king-emare:

The cops killed Eric Garner. Everything you need to know is on the tape. We can hear him screaming that he can’t breathe. We can see them not letting go of him or releasing pressure off his head and neck. We can see the illegal choke hold the cop had him in. We can also notice that he didn’t swing at any of the officers. So what clues are you searching for??? What investigation is there to do??? What don’t you understand???

Last one, promise :). #soho Behind the scenes for @interviewmag shoot by @ventiko featuring the #fantastic @jappopart & @stellamichaels #geisha

Is this a white tradition for white artists, that like at some point they have to use geisha iconography because… ? Are you not a white artist until you disrespect a culture that belongs to people of color? Is that Avant Garde, making use of stereotypes for your white audience?
Why do you have you wearing a Qipao-looking thing in the self-portrait, and then have this weird mash-up of japanese hiragana in one image? Why are there chopsticks in your hair? Why, WHY are you wearing that to your art showing? Are you channeling Katy Perry? Why is this “geisha”? 
Why did you do this? Where you like, I need to reinterpret the geisha through my distorted perspective because I want to add to the gigantic amalgam of racist white interpretations of the “geisha”, because “millions” wasn’t enough. No, I wanna make sure I add to that. 
PS That better not be a confederate flag up in the corner
