Do NOT visit this person’s blog if you are triggered by the fetishization/objectification of mixed identities and/or interracial relationships, anti-monoracial and especially anti-black rhetoric, racist science, and implications of incest.
This tumblr blogger is a Black woman (or someone posing as a Black woman) who spews anti-Black rhetoric and ignorant pseudo-science on a regular basis.
In this disgusting text that this person copies and pastes under most of the photos they host, they:
- insist that engaging in a relationship with someone of your own race is "genetic incest".
- imply that the common cultural practice of Black people calling each other “brothers” and “sisters” is incestuous.
- promote procreating with someone of another race purely for "genetic diversity", and not for, um, ACTUAL LOVE.
In addition, a simple scroll through this person’s blog will display the disgusting fetishization of mixed people, especially mixed women. This blogger often makes compilation posts of “mixed women”, some of which do contain explicit pornography.
Not to mention, this person’s mentality towards what a “mixed” person looks like completely erases the legitimate identities of all the mixed people who look monoracial and/or otherwise are not visibly mixed. She/He/They seem to think that all mixed people are light-skinned/light-eyed with “good hair”. What ignorance.
As a mixed Black woman, this is one of the most triggering and disgusting blogs I’ve come across on tumblr. And the fact that this person appears to have so much support and receives so many supporting messages is nothing short of disturbing.
Mixed people are not objects. We are not fashion items, and we are not your experimental ice cream flavors. We are people, no better or worse than those who are not mixed in their immediate family. A person’s worth and humanity is NOT based on whether or not they are mixed in their immediate family.
Be sure to block this blogger. Do not allow their ignorant trash to ruin your tumblr experience.
Iggy grew up poor and saved all her money to fly to Miami and start her life when she was only sixteen. She only had a few thousand dollars and she left all she knew and her family to make something of herself in America and the streets of Miami were really rough. She would work and save her money so she could record in cheap studios. She knows struggle. I know she's of a different genre than the classic rappers and I realize her music isn't incredibly special but don't depreciate her ambition.
SM Ent is going through so much shit this year and I’m here for it. I can’t stand that company.
Anyways I find it weird that SM would completely wipe out all of f(x)’s activities due to one member. Usually if a group member is ill, injured, or leaves they work around it. The explanation was interesting. They’re saying that due to malicious rumors (Choiza got her knocked up rumors) she wants to leave the ent. industry for a brief time and how they want to protect their artist. Chile since when does SM care about their artist? Normally they’re like “suck it up” and make their idols do shit they don’t want to do.
If she really is miserable then I hope she finds the happiness she needs. The entertainment world is brutal. I wouldn’t be surprised if SM disbands f(x). The whole wiping out their schedule what makes me suspicious of this.
The Roots drummer says that, “black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture.”
Weigh in on what Questlove said
Not Questlove :/
lmao this is the nigga who wrote a long-ass piece on how fucking hard it is to live as a “visble” Black man (and a tall, big one at that) and this nigga can’t really understand why Black woman wouldn’t be fucking w/ ol girl? Why do all the conscious niggas suddenly chill when it mostly Black women talking about a problem?
I enjoy the Roots’ back catalog, as well as Quest’s afro, but I feel like he’s the current poster boy for “dark-skinneded industry dude who still has a complex about Black girls not checking for him in high school” (see: Uncle Ruckus’ play-nephew A$AP Rocky).
This is the shit we talking bout’. When Black Women need Black Men’s support, on issues that will impact us, we get this shit. It’s always, “We need to open up our hearts.” it’s always “We need to share” whenever it’s about some damaging oppression that erases Black Women, we always have to “move over and make room.” And if we don’t do it nicely, and peacefully “We’re bitter black bitches, who hate anre are envious of non black women.” So we can talk about Macklemore and how Kendrick was robbed, how Black Men are overlooked in being rewarded for their music, and Black Women have jumped in supporting and defending, when we ask for support, for understanding, for acknowledgement of the harmful affects Iggy, Miley, Kreyshawn, are having on Black Women…..we get we need to chill. Now when’s it about Black Female Culture, it can no longer be appropriated, or gentrified, it can’t be stolen, it’s contagious like a damn disease and Black Women need to turn the other cheek, that’s some bullshit. Black Power is for Black Men.
Let me preface this by saying, no, I am not a white man here to “whitesplain”(Seriously with your stupid made up words.) something to you. I’m a black man. And over the years I’ve been called an African-American, but that bugs me. Fuck your political correctness, you’re black.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but as I understand it, when Africans immigrate to the US they don’t become African-American, they become Kenyan-American, Ghanian-American, etc. African American refers to a specific ethnicity, namely the descendants of slaves in the United States. This makes sense given that descendants of slaves in the US don’t know where in Africa they are from and instead would identify with the continent, whereas African immigrants would identify with the country they came from (the same way a Caribbean American would identify with Jamaica, Martinique, etc.). Because of the way we construct race and ethnicity in the US, people who are not African American often get folded into the label, but that doesn’t mean that the term can’t have specificity or validity.
It may also surprise you to know that African American is not some made up PC term but one coined and adopted by African Americans themselves as part of a larger struggle for self-identification and determination. Feel free not to identify that way, but trying to throw it under the bus as some bullshit is lame. Nothing wrong with people wanting to affirm a connection to the place where they came from even if they only have a vague idea of it.
I’ve lived in the South my whole life and one thing I’ll never get used to is white folks down here romanticizing plantations. White folks get married there, tour the places, talk about how beautiful they are, and turn them into hotels/resorts.
So mf’ers think a place where slavery, torture, genocide, and rape happen is beautiful? Chile please. They wouldn’t dare do that to a concentration camp tho.
The City of New York approved a proposal by one of the largest real estate developers in the city to build in a ‘poor door’, or a separate door for residents living in affordable housing to enter their building.
'No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations,' David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers, another developer specializing in luxury residencies, told The Real Deal in 2013. 'So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.'
^ Are you fucking kidding me?!
wow really? what the fuck do y’all think is gonna happen if you use the same door as my poor Black ass? you think you might be forced to pay a living wage?
I don’t think I’ve heard such classist bullshit justifications since Mitt Romney blathered on about 57 percent. They live in the same building with these people, heaven forbid they have to use the same door.
Gentrification y’all. They figured out how to build in these poorer neighborhoods and speed up the permit process (by having these combined subsidized and luxury buildings). But god forbid the chic-chic crowd have to actually walk the same way as the people they’ve been trying to displace.
A motion for a second “stand your ground” hearing for Marissa Alexander has been denied, in a ruling made Friday by Judge James Daniel.
Marissa Alexander has been denied a new Stand Your Ground hearing. Yet again, Florida refuses to free this survivor of domestic violence, fails to support women’s right to self defense, and continues to support anti-black racism in the judicial system. Her new trial is still scheduled to begin Dec 8th.
