“I grew up seeing a lot of superheroes and they didn’t look like me and they certainly weren’t in Africa. I think that it is something great for girls who are like me growing up. Growing up in Africa, we were looking for images we couldn’t always find.” (Danai Gurira on Black Panther Movie)

The point of Ann Coulter getting shit on horribly and constantly at Rob Lowe’s roust. 

When you spend your entire existence being horrible and spiteful to people, well, yeah, eventually people are going to turn around and be horrible and spiteful to you. That’s how life works.

Her fake empty forced smile, though. Christ. She’s fucking mortified. She can’t defend herself…or attempt to.

But she’ll get over it. For all the right wing speech tour money and whatnot. 

This is all rather disturbing to watch.

S/O to @aurora-princessbabe @mae-the-chubbi-kitti @daddys-chaton-noir @littlecuriousprincess and all other beautiful and amazing POC littles that I don’t know of. I can’t imagine how hard it is to be a beautiful woman of color in such a stupid closed minded and (unfortunately) predominately white washed community. Keep your gorgeous heads up and don’t let the tiara fall!!!! I Love you all 💕💕💕💕😊😊😊😊😚😚😚

Tenho família no Brasil e nos EUA, morei por muitos anos em cada país. Acho que a maior diferença em termos de "race" é que nos EUA houve menos miscegenação e ser de um grupo aqui é associado a certos valores e costumes, são sub-culturas. No Brasil não é assim. Há diferenças regionais e diferenças de classe, mas não é como é aqui. Aqui ser negro ou branco ou latino não é apenas onde você nasceu ou a cor da pele, é também uma cultura. Acho ruim pq todos são definidos rigorosamente...

… o Brasil mesmo é ignorado aqui em termos de race. Eles não sabem o que fazer conosco porque associam latinos fortemente à língua espanhola e a uma aparência… Não sabem que na América latina (e no Brasil em si) há línguas e culturas diferentes.”

Relato pra lá de interessante, adorei, valeu! <3

Location: The Inner Sanctum, Boston, MA

Why:
“Because Boston is IT we just dont know it. There is no need to emulate a celebrity because we are the celebrities. Spending all of this money on clothes when we have people surrounding the town and the city who make custom clothing, design, and have their own brands! We need to start buying local and start getting money from outside of our own communities. I believe the only way to do this is to rid ourselves of insecurities and large egos. Its just not healthy and is very counter productive to comfortable and happy living.

I used a Jordan theme, not because I have a million Jordans in my closet but because I dont understand why some of our people support this repetitive release of basketball sneakers and attire that no longer stands for what it did when it was created. We support things that have become trendy but for the life of me I cannot figure out why you would spend over 100 bangers on a sneaker and it keeps coming out and you cant even ball up in them anymore! I want us to know how great we are and how creative we are. The originality I see cannot be measured and Boston is one of a kind. Hopefully we can come together and understand that before they tear all of our communities down. As black people we rejoice in bad times and make due with horrible situations .” - Jamilah aka cauctease
