Style has a profound meaning to Black Americans. If we can’t drive, we will invent walks and the world will envy the dexterity of our feet. If we can’t have ham, we will boil chitterlings; if we are given rotten peaches, we will make cobblers; if given scraps, we will make quilts; take away our drums, and we will clap our hands. We prove the human spirit will prevail. We will take what we have to make what we need. We need confidence in our knowledge of who we are.
My mama was raised in an era when/Clean water was only served to the fairer skin Doing clothes you would have thought I had help/But they wouldn’t be satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself You see its broke nigga racism/That’s that “don’t touch anything in the store” And there’s rich nigga racism/That’s that “come in and buy more” What you want a Bentley, fur coat and diamond chain?/All you blacks want all the same things Used to only be niggas /Now everybody play me Spending everything on that Alexander Wang/New Slaves
You see it’s leaders and it’s followers/But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower You see it’s leaders and it’s followers/But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower

The cca is the largest for profit prison corporation in America. They make money from incarcerating as many people for as long possible. By law they are obligated to maintain 90% occupancy and make a profit. In simple terms: Private Prisons are big bucks. They have shareholders. Shareholders hire lobbyist. Lobbyist push for lawmakers to make longer prison sentences and target poor blacks who suffer from “collateral sanctions” that land them back into the prisons that profit from them. NEW SLAVES
Multiple times I have been forced to endure the constant voice of whiteness and racism that many black college students have to. I’ve been accused of having a black-only scholarship, called the “n-word” or ghetto. Then I was scolded if I reacted violently and told I was backing stereotypes.
So i decided what would it be like if white had to endure the hatred of blacks without any chance to defend themselves and looking at the things they caused.
y’all need to watch this right now
FOREVER REBLOG! And the original video.. I mean, watching that White girl in tears… where is that man?? That was REAL love!
“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
That was the whitest fight and whitest school I’ve ever seen
AND THERES THAT ONE PERSON NOT EVEN TWO FEET AWAY FROM THE FIGHT JUST CASUALLY PUTTING HER STUFF IN HER LOCKER AND WHEN SHE SEES THE FIGHT SHES ALL LIKE “OH COOL WHATEVER” AND WALKS OFF AS IF NOTHING WAS HAPPENING
