I get really happy when I see great campaings in the internet. Blackout Day is a great one. Of course racism has to be fighted everyday, but those campaigns make the cause stronger.
We are black, we are awesome. *-*
Being a black fat lesbian is not picnic. So, I’ll use this opportunity to tell you all a little about how discrimination works in Brazil. It’s in a very common in colonized countries: by colorism or pigmentocracy. Why didn’t I tell racism? Well, because in this type of discrimination you can be a african descendant and rarely suffer of racism, but a person with very little blood connection with africans can suffer like hell. And an arabic person can be called a nigga as well. It is all because skin color. The darker you are, the more you suffer. And this is SO DANGEROUS, because lots of black people don’t get aware of this kind of discrimination, because when the person has lighter skin, society says they are white! I already heard ridiculous things like “Someone called me nigga today. I’m not black, I’m just tanned!”. -_-
As you can see, my skin is not very dark, so I didn’t suffer much racism when I was younger, cuz my mom used to make up my mind to straight up my hair. ¬¬ Well I cut that bullshit of my life, MAGICALLY the discrimination when from 8 to 80 SO QUICK that I still get amazed and disguted. Any kind of discrimination is disguting, but colorism is very dangerous. Making very mixed person believe she/he is WHITE is erasing their past, the opportunity to know about their ancestors and makes them weak. Discrimination will come to them one day, but they will not understand why and they won’t be prepared to react if they have the chance.
I cant stop laughing, in the hotel i work at theres a couple, a brazilian woman and an argentinian man. They have two sons, BUT one of them speaks spanish and is argentina af and the other one is brazil af, speaks portuguese AND refuses to speak in spanish to his father LMAOO they literally argued every two seconds, that poor mother
“It was a very good finish to my career. I had a good fight with all the guys I’ve enjoyed fighting with for most of my career: Seb, Fernando, Lewis, Nico, all the guys who have been in the window for the last five or six years. I want to thank the team, I enjoyed the last laps. It was a very nice way to finish. I want to thank everyone in Australia. I wouldn’t be here where I am without the support in the early days. It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable career. A great journey, one of which I’m proud.”
