"Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today."

theres niggas taking pictures of their bodies w/o consent and posting it on the internet just cause fat black bodies are somehow inherently comical

Ordinary People by John Legend came on the radio while I’m working and I almost burst in tears. Relationships can be so hard at times but you just know who you want to be with so you keep trying.

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving. And the rose buds know to bloom in early May. Just as hate knows love’s the cure you can rest your mind assure that I’ll be loving you always.

Free Figure's Black Power Rally at VCU!

i can dig it

point: mammies are still in film roles and ironically Madea is a huge example of a modern mammy…but other than that this post is on point.

The point of my sign saying “Not your Madea. Mammies don’t exist.” is to explicitly state that I am not a Madea, who is most definitely a contemporary example of a mammy. Being a fat black woman, I am expected to exemplify this idea of a Mammy because that’s what tropes do. They limit the perception of real life black people to the fantasies of the white imagination (which can be internalized or perpetuated by other black people; i.e. Tyler Perry). There are no real life mammies because mammies are a made up portrayal of certain black women. Nonblack people see Madea films and expect that every black family has a Madea. Or that every outspoken fat black woman will serve as their comedic relief, as their advisory council, or as their protector in terms of handling their problems. My sign is stating my consciousness of being read as a Mammy and trying to dismantle that.

youngblackandvegan:

black women come in literally every shape, color, and size

and so when a person says they aren’t attracted to black women

it’s not actually about being physically attracted to black women

it’s about an aversion to blackness

and just knowing a person is black is seen as repulsive

regardless of physical attractiveness
