beyonce live

Think about how much people hate Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick, or any other black celebrity who spoke out against racial injustice. They didn’t assault any police officers. They didn’t loot any businesses. They didn’t threaten to kill all white people. They didn’t do anything violent at all. They just did something that white people couldn’t ignore. And look at how much they’re hated, despite following racists’ demand to “protest peacefully”. They’ve even received death threats.

I'm going to say this once

To my fellow white women:
Beyoncé’s LEMONADE is not for us.
We can enjoy it. We can blast it loud in the shower. We can appreciate it aestheticly and visually and musically.
But it is not for us to appropriate for our own gain. I don’t want to see white women writing op-eds about it. I don’t want to hear your acoustic covers of the tracks. I’m not interested in your critiques, as a white woman, of it. I don’t want you CAPITALIZING on a piece of art that is fundamentally not. for. us.
LEMONADE is a beautiful tribute to black womanhood, femininity, the black struggle, and black power. It is NOT for all women, and most importantly, it is NOT for white women to co-opt and colonize and attempt to profit from.

I don’t care if your feelings are hurt because it “doesn’t include enough” white folx. I don’t care. I don’t want to hear about it.

Appreciate the beauty. Sing its praises. Enjoy the depth and the poetry. But don’t try to make what isn’t for you, your’s. In any way, shape, or form.



This is for those who think she’s doing this to capitalize off of black people for profit (which doesn’t make much sense at this point in her career. If she wants to make significant financial gain, she would sell out for white dollars like some of these other artists).
