Said it once, I’ll say it again: mixed race babies have been around for a long time. Dating/fucking/breeding with a different race will not end racism. Hunting down people of a specific race because of your sexual interest/curiosity in them IS RACIST–its called fetishism.
And guess what racial fetishism is, lil’ people: objectification. And objectification is what, lil’ people? Dehumanizing and…

Old label (left), new label (right), one word difference as far as I saw
I went into the store looking for Sofn’free Curly Pudding. But there were none though I saw other products from the same line. I saw something instead called “Pure Pudding”. When I asked about it, the clerk in the beauty supply store said she was thinking they discontinued the line. I was like “Whut?!” It just came out!

Hate breeds hate is probably the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard.
You know what hasn’t changed the world? Simply sitting by and hoping it changes.
You know what HAS changed the world? Revolution, protests, marches anger.
Anger and passion have changed the world and I’m going to be damned if someone tries to silence me or anyone else by talking about “hate breeds hate”
Shut the fuck up.

I usually do smaller twists
but I was tired so I did bigger ones this time. I like how they turned out.
I’m currently still using Okay shea butter oil and coconut oil, Cantu shea butter leave-in conditioning, Herbal Essence Hello Hydration conditioning (I mostly cowash), and Soft n Free Curly Pudding (or Pure Pudding, they changed the name I think).

My grandmother passed away (as mentioned on this blog in my tribute). I did not want to go to her funeral because I knew I’d have to see the sheeples called “family members”. I was manipulated into going despite my wishes.
They’re the same as they ever were. Stingy. Complaining. Cheapskates. Greedy. Passive aggressive. Self-absorbed. Sheep people. And that’s an insult to sheep.
Of course, my…

"White people like going back in time, which is always a problem for me. I can only go back so far. Any farther and my black ass is in chains."

whiteamericanman asked: As for the thirst for space and aliens n shit, you misinterpreted the motivation behind it. Some individuals hold truth and meaning higher than justice, which imo is the ONLY meaningful pursuit. Some would sooner die reaching across the unknown than live on this limited and hopeless world mired with humanity's self-inflicted turmoil. You cannot change this world, but you can make a new one. We SHOULD make a new one. Meet NEW people that can show us the next new question to ponder.
I know the motivation behind it just fine
And my point still stands: If we cannot overcome the societal forces that have created the great inequalities on THIS PLANET, what makes you think that we’ll do so with another species? WE WON’T
Take that Star Trek. Because it has always baffled and irked me how people think justice is less important and they’re just going to shuttle off to somebody else’s planet when they can’t even deal with injustice on their own planet.
Okay, I don’t know how this conversation started and that’s all I have to say.
