For those of you who criticize Janelle’s signature monochromatic look.
From her speech on “Black Girls Rock”:
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” - Janelle Monáe
she is the coolest fucking chick
The classic doll color test performed with a white child, complete with the parent’s
The little girl even says she picked the white figures as the good child because it “looks like me” and the dark girl as bad because “she’s dark”. When Soledad O’Brien asks the girl’s mother about it, we’re met with quite a few colorblind based excuses and “well, we just don’t talk about race”.
“We don’t talk about race!!”
And your kid is saying racist shit regardless.
That should fucking tell you something, lady.
But of course, it won’t. I bet you cash money she won’t change a thing, continuing to use that color blind bullshit.
This is why the whole idea of not discussing race with white children is bullshit. No, it won’t “taint” them. When you don’t talk about it, they still form opinions — racist ones — because they don’t know any better, so to speak. Then one day they grow up into adults that are, guess what, still racist. As Black folks, we pretty much all had “the talk” as kids/young people; our existence in this society dictates that we do, because racism is a part of our lives at an incredibly young age. Colorblind ideology has been proven to be toxic as blatant racism. And little white kids can be just as racist as their parents.
we dont talk about race with kids but a small child ran up to my professor’s wife and said she had a terrorist baby.
we dont talk about race with kids but white children were encouraged to go to lynchings to see white supremacy. because (trigger warning: graphic details) jesse washington, whose charred body is floating around on tumblr posts, had his teeth yanked out by white children so they could sell them as lynching souvenirs.
we dont talk about race with kids but kids clearly PICK UP ON RACE. many POC parents dont explicitly discuss race but clearly, white ppl, kids pick up on it!!
I remember seeing a different doll test video years ago, except the kids weren’t white. Growing up I’ve noticed this so much, and it’s disgusting and depressing that people ignore this.
It really angers me is when people say kids don’t notice anything. Children pick up on these things because it’s the world they grow up in. When I was little I didn’t fully understand the world but I noticed certain racist things that went on. I had friends who would share stories with each other about how unfair we got treated, and how insecure we sometimes felt, or how we wanted more people who looked like us on TV. We were like what, 7 or 8 years old? We were figuring out how things worked already.
That’s why it bothers me so much when people don’t realize how important it is to represent and talk about all kinds of people. And how important it is to talk about the problems that still go on in the world. It’s exhausting to deal with and no one ever listens.
All those problems go real deep into history too, something else people choose to ignore. And I don’t see things getting better. Anyway I just felt like getting that out. I’ll stop typing now
This other video was refreshing to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJHSRuYW_3c
^The original doll test was done in the 60s (maybe 50s or 70s? but 60s sounds right) and showed how black children were being exposed to racist beliefs. The test in the video shows how white kids are also exposed to those same beliefs. Sadly it wont change how most white parents raise their kids. Just look at how the mom reacted to her daughter. She didn’t say “we are going to have a conversation about race.” She made up excuses for why her daughter believed the black children were bad and ugly. Kids pick up racism from their families, environment, and the media. That video shows how we do not live in a color blind society or post-racial society, regardless of what many white liberals believe. This video also demonstrated why white kids need to be taught about race and racism. It also shows why POC need to be represented positively in media and not just as the villains or as stereotypes.
I’m assuming that they’re Google translating words for “Gypsy” because the URL they wanted was taken.
If you are not Rromani or you’re not Rromani from certain parts Continental Europe, then don’t use that word.Don’t use ANY variation of that word.
IT’S WORSE THAN “GYPSY” YOU FUCK WITS.
MOST RROMANI WON’T FUCKING TOUCH THAT WORD WITH A 10 FOOT POLE, IT’S THAT OFFENSIVE.
IT LITERALLY MEANS SLAVE.
marble sculptures are one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever seen i mean
that’s stone and someone made it look transparent

crying is manly as shit
crying was originally seen as a masculine thing. if you were a roman centurion or something and you didn’t cry when one of your fellow soldiers died, you were seen as an insensitive pussy.
I don’t understand Sam- these are ‘blogs’? What are their functions? And what is that word ‘destiel’ that I frequently see?
