Amun is Satisfied

The other day someone gave me an suggestion to draw Amenhotep III. and his wife Tiye, parent of the Heretic pharaoh Akhenaten, so I gave it a try! 
I believe that they were from the south, from Nubia, especially Tiye.
I’ve been playing with shadings a bit this time.
Anyway, I hope you like them, I think I’m in love with Tiye! :D

Sista Raz Bey breaks down the Moors and the Miss-Understanding of them, along with the power of the Melinated Woman

inbox me some positive black blogs that dont blog about racism please

I just want one place where I can feel good about  being black, be happy, and not “HEY BY THE WAY EVERYONE THINKS YOU’RE UGLY STUPID VIOLENT AND DESERVE TO DIE” 

I just want to look at pretty pictures of black women and black men and cool hairstyles and clothes and listen to music and smile at adorable black children and black culture and learn about black history without wanting to cry every over scroll is that so much to ask?

  • society:*calls black women ugly*
  • society:*makes fun of black women's various hairstyles*
  • society:*stereotypes black women*
  • society:*calls black women's natural hair nappy and unattractive*
  • society:*only puts skinny white women in magazines, beauty companies, etc*
  • society:*says natural afro hair is "unprofessional*
  • society:why do black women hate themselves

Most of my future children tag is cute brown children being fabulous and clearly belonging to me in spirit, but I’m making an exception for this tweet because if I don’t raise my kids to give that exact same response, then I have failed as a parent.

Who is this woman and can I send her a thank-you gift basket and a Black Parenting Award?  This is why it is imperative that we teach our children real history outside of textbooks constructed by, written for, and approved by white men whose re-telling of history conveniently glosses over atrocities and minimizes suffering.

"bold new idea"

I want to go to that school and set fire to every history book in the building.

"Miley Cyrus invented twerking."

"Twerking is so old now."

(Someone makes a post about black women being beautiful af)

”**ALL WOMEN are beautiful”

(Someone makes a relevant post about how black folks are getting killed by police all the time)

"IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE. ANYONE CAN GET KILLED BY POLICE"

"Why are you getting upset at me for wearing these extension braids?"

"Why are you getting upset about me wearing an afro wig?"

"Why can’t I wear this tribe attire?"

"Why can’t I say ‘nigga’? You guys say it all the time."

"Iggy is a better rapper than Nicki Minaj"

"OH MY GOD WHY WOULD NICKI MINAJ SHAKE HER ASS ON A VIDEO LIKE THAT"

"WHY WASN’T ONE DIRECTION AT THE BET AWARDS?!"

"LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND. SLAVERY IS OVER SO STOP PULLING THE RACE CARD."

"RACISM CAN BE TOWARDS WHITE PEOPLE TOO."
