When little black girls, especially little black dark skin girls, enter this world it is very clear, the rules are made very aware, who is beautiful, and valued, and who is not. Simply because we are black, simply because we are not white, we are deemed inferior, unintelligent, and ugly. 

You would rather paint your white women brown, then dare allow a black woman exist and be deemed as beautiful. It is not our place to be called beautiful unless there is a catch, unless there is an asterisk. “You’re pretty!*” 

*for a black girl 

You will spend money tanning, but call black women monkeys and ‘dirty’, our hair styles are ghetto, till your magazine has a step by step tutorial on how to achieve the same look, so it’s not ghetto, it’s just ghetto on us. It ‘works’ on you. 

We are taught certain rules when we are young, ‘You look so much prettier with straight hair!’ ‘Oh, thank god she light skin,’ ‘Don’t stay out in the sun you’ll look burnt,’ ‘Yeah but that hair isn’t professional-‘ 

We are taught to hide, to assimilate, to be close to whiteness because whiteness is acceptable and we are not. We get these rules as children. So to grow up, learning and adapting to these rules, and then seeing white people praised for stealing our culture, our dress,

if a photo of us dressed like that appeared on the news, people would say any injustice we faced, was deserved, ‘look at them, dressed like that.’

But you can wear it, freely, without judgement, without risk. No one would say you deserved to die. No one would give your killer half of a million dollars, as basically a congratulations, a pat on the back, for murdering you. 

Just our natural being is a threat to you, we are born villains to you. We possess this great threat, but at the same time, you look down on us, expect us to be stupid, low class, dirty… we are not on your level, you still see us as your servants in your culture, but pretend to be the gods in ours. 

It’s confusing. It’s confusing to be a black woman, to be made a joke, and all the punch lines, our hair, skin tone, lips, body… you try to imitate, but it’s not that, it isn’t, it’s our very existence that’s a joke to you. And if you are white, and reading this, and offended, 

Fuck you. 

Fuck you, fuck your whole ancestry line, and fuck your future generations.

Gosh I just saw an honest post about how men can you slow you down by having to be taught how to serve God by you. When you should just meet a man who already knows how to serve God. I can honestly attest to this. I dated a non-believer for three years. In the beginning, I tried to bring him to Christ but it began to be a stronghold. He didn’t like to go to church that was always a battle. During those three years, I eventually strayed from God & put God on the back burner. It was the hardest time in my life. I experienced a lot of things that I needed to cry out to God to overcome but couldn’t. I’m so thankful that my relationship with God has grown since then & I’m continuing to grow in Him without being slowed down.

And this is only a few out of the thousands. T.V. has always been “White-ish” but once that’s either pointed out or POC do the same damn thing, these bigoted white people want to pull the race card or bark at these POC for doing the same damn thing they’ve already been doing. 

racism at highest level for white people is that they want all the shows…meanwhile black people getting shot for being black..OK

Bruh. Honestly
