Dear White people and non-Black PoC: Y'all don't seem to understand this, so allow me to break this shit down and explain it like you're a fucking 2 year old, okay?

thinkspeakstress:

For the non-Black PoC:

IF YOU ARE NOT BLACK

YOU CANNOT SAY THE N WORD.

PERIOD.

IT IS NOT YOURS TO RECLAIM.

NO, YOU AREN’T WHITE.

BUT GUESS WHAT? YOU AIN’T BLACK EITHER.

SO YOU, GO ON AHEAD AND TAKE YOUR SEAT WITH THE WHITE FOLKS

AND SHUT

DA FUCK

UP.

And if that doesn’t…

The N Word: An FAQ

crashleyratchedourian:

First, a few words about this FAQ. Many people much smarter and much more cohesive than me have written extensively about ‘the N word’, so if you have any questions after this etc I’d advise you seek out what’s already been written. Secondly, don’t treat this as the GOSPEL on Black people’s…

myvoicemyright:

White people are more offended by the fact that they can’t say the N word or have dreadlocks than the fact that they were responsible for slavery , genocide , colonization and the destruction of entire civilizations

vand-etta said: Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

All of this. ALL OF THIS. READ THIS ^^^^^^

White people didn’t invent straight hair either. There are Black people with straight hair. That’s not a “White style”.

Because ALL of this needs to be on everyone’s page.

black woman: *gets a perm*
people: why do you want to be white why do you hate yourself so much to be burning your hair out with the creamy crack every 4-6 weeks and it cant even be healthy for your hair or your scalp you need to let it go and embrace who you really are i hope that in time you come to accept yourself and what God has given you.
black woman: fuck y'all, I do what I want.
black men: see this is why i dont fuck with black women they got attitude problems bruh i only like a light-skin yellowbone with good hair that knows how to act i dont understand why black women gotta be so mad all the time like damn black women really aint shit.
