Her nose & mouth is better. I’m a little concerned that they went full maroon night elf on the color. Honestly, I’ve applied to Pixar & Disney, just in entry level production. No go. IDK why they can’t hire more black women but I think the way Tiana became Mariah with a deep tan says they can hire few more.
You act as if there are not systems that victimize Black women and black LGBTQ members. When much of homelessness is caused by poor LGBTQ youth being forced out of their homes and onto the streets that’s not systemic? Did the white man force the straight black man to kick out his LGBTQ child. Did he tell him to kill…
Seriously? You are typing on a computer and can properly spell the word “privilege” but you can’t understand the concept of an analogy?
You’re not even trying
All we (and black women have been) are saying is it is time for black men to stop being the hurt people who hurt people. And doing so will make our families and communities better. Being safe with each other so we can be dangerous together. At the end of the day, we can all get behind that without “buts” or…
It’s not a competition. And if it is, then the only prize in the “Oppression Olympics” is death.
Black men must and should treat black women better. But I actually don’t give a fuck because white people have set up systems to oppress us and deny us our humanity.
“I am outraged that Disney is going PC and jamming racism down our throats by adding an obvious black princess to this crowd. I’m working on a picture of cinderella, snow white, and Elsa all wearing white hoods and robes and carrying burning crosses! We need to stop ruining the lives of our children with this stuff!”
It’s legit hard to grasp some actual positive news.
This is so timely.
I really don’t get why so many people have such a violent reaction to the suggestion that they may be privileged over another even though they might be disadvantaged in many/most other contexts. Hell, those same people can usually point to a example of the privilege-oppression dynamic (like telling black athletes to…
“Black women want black men to succeed, we want you to have fully realized lives, we want to share power and resources. We just don’t want you to kill us in the process.”
damn. it’s been a whole year? time flies...
I thought a lot about the reaction as well, for all the reasons that you stated in this piece. And to your point about about adding to the existing negative narrative about black men, that was puzzling as well, because you were making points primarily from an intraracial perspective. But then then, also it stands to…
I mean do they really stop anything?
The black ones.
Champ there was noting wrong with the article. The whole scenario reminds me of when you ask your close friend to keep it real with you, you think you are ready to hear what he has to say, and you are not really ready to hear AND LISTEN to their feedback.
The Commitee has added magaKanye to the Do Not Serve, Not Even a Togo Plate list until such a time that he presents definitive proof that he’s gotten his mind right.
No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service.
The most infuriating part of this whole rant, is that if those comments are disrespectful, they are only disrespectful b/c she is HIS WIFE. So, they have disrespected him, I guess. If she was just some random woman existing in the world, say all you want about fucking her or doing whatever else. It is not like she is…
