Since everyone is calling out Queen Miley for wearing dreads

Why is it called cultural appropriation whenever there is a white girl wearing her hair “urban” (braids, dreads, cornrows)? However, having straightened hair is never considered cultural appropriation. Imitating white / Asian natural hair is seemingly okay.

I see a double standard here..

How about everyone can wear whatever fucking hairstyle they want. Cultures mix, and so do traditions! Get over it!

Hi. My name is Francillia, and yesterday I was on facebook. Fortafy (I think he’s a musician) uploaded this picture with that caption.

These two girls are in blackface, clearly.

I made a comment, and what upset me was the fact that very few people had even made a comment about it.
This is the world we live in.

  • Cuban keeps women imprisoned in home for over ten years:
  • Tumblr:
  • Two black teens kill a white guy walking his dog for fun:
  • Tumblr:
  • Black man stabs Jewish man in the face after shouting antisemitic slurs:
  • Tumblr:
  • White person commits any crime:
  • Tumblr:WHIIIITE PEOPLE AMIRITE GUYS??? CRACKERS ARE SO MESSED UP. WHITE SUPREMACY AT WORK. WHIIIIITE PEOPL
You Might Be Racist If
  • 1:You feel compelled to say, "Your pretty for a dark girl."
  • 2:You believe that having black friends excuses you from racism
  • 3:you believe that if white people shouldn't say the N-word then black people shouldn't say cracker, honkey, mayonnaise, etc.
  • 4:You feel the need to bring up black on black crime during conversations on police brutality
  • 5. You think two black people are related just because they are standing near each other
  • 6:You confuse black people who bear no resemblance to each other
  • 7:Every time you get called out you hide behind freedom of speech
  • 8:you believe in reverse racism
  • 9:you think "well if a black person did/said whatever no one/everyone would care"
  • 10. You think people only get scholarships because of their race
  • Feel free to send in ask and add more

Enjoy. If you’ve got anything to add, feel free. I really want this post circulated. If you like it, make sure to reblog it!!

I really fucking hate that the fact that “reverse racism doesn’t exist” has managed to spread beyond tumblr. So incredibly depressing.

Edit: Since y’all are already here, feel free to read the following posts:

Where I respond to paranormal-blacktivity.

Where I respond to someone else.

Equality Golbat: “Do not compare dark people to chocolate or coffee if you’re not ready to be compared to sour cream and mayonnaise.”

Calling white people mayonnaise is not racist, it’s throwing your own BS back at you. Don’t complain about your own behavior if you’re not willing to change it.
