Anonymous asked: Do you think there is colorism and shadeism in other WOC like there is with black women? I am Mexican and am more indigenous looking and I'm almost orange in color. There's so many white passing Latinas that will comment that I look like a gardener or a maid. I don't have straight light hair or green eyes that so many Mexicans yearn for. But I am weary to call this shadeism because it might not be as occurring as it is in the black community...

No, colorism isn’t exclusive to the Black community at all.

It’s in every community touched/burned by colonialism.

Britain’s first black marchioness

Okay y’all. 

This is: Emma McQuiston

And as that says, she’s this first black marchioness Britain has ever had. 

But she’s not the only black royal

but THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

plus she’s getting snubbed like big time. The groom’s father didn’t even come. And she said things like: 

she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background

which is fucking stupid cause who do those inbred fuckers think they are snubbing people and shit.

SO REBLOG IT, CAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.

Black royalty exists.

Know it

Love it

I heart this photoset!

So, Miley Cyrus can recognize “racism against pitbulls” but can’t even recognize the racism she perpetuates against Black women.

Don’t you know? To white…

I’ve been thinking about this. I often talk about “white people” and I think of them of as that patriarchal, hegemonic entity that walks in privilege and ignorance and hatred. I don’t think of my friends and family members who walk the ally walk as “white people.”

So I think people who get ready to tone police or act like they’re allies but really aren’t should know: we’re not stupid, we don’t think y’all all look alike or act like douches..just like you don’t think all Black folks say the N-word with reach other, or are lazy or are prone to promiscuity…right?

My heart. Always.

What can we do to resist the "Black people are used to pain" and the "Black people feel less/no pain" narrative?

This story by NPR got me thinking, and I’m wondering what we each can do in our own lives to counteract this.

On Tumblr, we already have “Protect Black girls at all costs.”

What…

I would love to see more about big black women as centers of films, and not comedians in drag. Doing everything we do and not being the sidekick, the mammy or the hater. Being loved by men and women who look like the spectrum of humanity. And kicking butt in non-campy ways.

Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love: Christian Mysticism in the 14th Century

This is textual rather than visual, but I ran into this depiction of Christ in chapter 51 of Revelations of Divine Love:

"The place where our Lord sat was humble, on the barren earth,…

For real, it’s just a good set of quotes.

"On my show ‘Community’, a new script supervisor saw me on set and pulled me aside. With tears in her eyes, she said, “You moved me in ‘The Help’. If I had endured what Minny had, I would have put pooh in that pie, too.” I didn’t have the heart to tell her that she had mistaken me for my buddy Octavia Spencer. So I said, “Thank you so much.” Later I texted Octavia that she was making White women cry on the Paramount lot. We had a good laugh."

Yvette Nicole Brown, Essence Magazine (September 2012)

Too bad it’s not funny. I get confused for other black women all the time, and it’s tiring.
