we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time.
“When I walk into a church, I only see paintings of white angels. Why?" - Eartha Kitt
okay but are we really using a lynx advert - one of the misogynistic companies ever - for this quote???
You sound like such a white feminist rn. Like yes Lynx is trash but we’re appreciating the use of a black angel, no one is suggesting that Lynx is suddenly the pinnacle of feminism bcs they used a black model anywhere in this post. This whole post is obviously about appreciating this beautiful black angel. Hence why Eartha Kitt’s quote goes beautifully with it. If you want to write a think piece on how misogynistic Lynx is… do so.. but gawd stop trying to make black girls feel bad for enjoying the fact that they’re seeing a black angel.
One of my mentors at Yale, the great anthropologist and art historian Robert Ferris Thompson, has documented that three of the most important words, and thus, concepts, brought to these (and other) shores via Africans are Cool, Funky, and Hip. My argument follows: you can no more separate Black from Cool than you can separate French cooking from France, or yoga from India. Cool has African roots, period. We, Black people, bring the aesthetic of Cool to the table of global culture, and should be recognized intellectually and economically for doing so.

Martin Guy is facing life in prison for wounding 3 SWAT officers and killing 1 after they attempted to enter his home with a “no-knock” warrant. He was unaware the men were officers; he assumed they were trespassers. The search warrant was for drugs-no drugs were found.
