She just stared for the longest time.

OMG…I love this. This is important.

v important! representation matters more than words can express
but this picture about sums it up :)



Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!

Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.





Black Egyptian excellence.

Why was Dreamworks one of the only ones who actually attempted to be historically accurate?

Cause Dreamworks isn’t all white people.



As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting




Enforcement Officials Beat & Kidnap a 12-yo Black Girl in Front of her Residence, Claiming She Was a Prostitute
"When her mother and father came outside after hearing her cries for help she was desperately holding a tree with one arm while plainclothes officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
Dymond Milburn, now 20-years-old, was an honor student attending advanced classes at Austin Middle School, when her life would be forever scarred by Galveston police.”
None of the enforcement officials who terrorized and beat Milburn were penalized.


officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
they were literally trying to kill her. this is a little girl. what the fuck.


"just curious about your opinion on this x" - @escapedminds

…and then she probably took it off and lived happily ever after. it’s like all these times when Muslim women discuss their experiences with Islamophobia when wearing hijab and barely anyone cares besides other Muslims. But then a white woman says it and everyone’s like “oh yeahh omg so true. this is a real issue”. 
"It reminded me of something that many people know but barely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim" 
^^^ Like ok so it took a white girl doing in experiment for “only a few hours” to realize the we Muslim women are actual people? And as if wearing a headscarf doesn’t make you human with feelings any more? You needed to do an experiment to realize that Muslim women are REAL human beings? That’s complete bullshit. I don’t care if this white woman realized something. Just more proof that white people’s opinions are heard and held over other people’s opinions. 
if you’re wondering if this is cultural appropriation, it isn’t because Islam doesn’t say that someone who is not Muslim cannot wear a headscarf It is open to anyone. But don’t call it a hijab; with wearing hijab come responsibilities and way of living that are special to a Muslim woman; not for some experiment that a white person wanted to try out.

Tomorrow is September 11th. If you see somebody being Islamophobic toward Muslims or non-Muslim Arabs and Sikhs, don’t stand by and do nothing. Shut that shit down!
