all jokes aside, it really hurts my heart as a black girl that when asked what she would do differently if she had another chance inside the house, dominique said she would keep her mouth shut. last season da’vonne said, if not the exact same thing, something very similar.

yall, big brother is just some shitty reality show. but this just goes to show the sad truth in our society: black women are constantly narrowed down to a single stereotype and are generally not respected as people. whether it be the angry black women or the strong black women trope (both limit our ability as women to emote, as if the only emotion we can express is anger and our only quality is strength), there’s no denying that these negative traits are pinned on black women as a means of oppression and to undermine the way we feel. dominique – who was aware of how her (completely valid) emotions could be stereotyped – fell victim to a multitude of microaggressions that black women endure everyday in the real world. if dominique was white, would she have had the same experience as she did this past week? hell no.

point blank: black women in life and in big brother can’t voice their opinions without being stuffed into a stereotype by their white counterparts, or in this case, being evicted

i really appreciate that it looks like lance’s emotional side will be explored outside of ‘oh he feels like a third wheel and he’s super flirty’ if u get me??? like, him being able to reassure and comfort people and his very instinct to do so is a character trait that i think defines him a lot, and every time i see it actually explored !!! i get super happy!!! he’s a lot more than a guy whose importance is fanon overdone angst!!!! he’s also just…. a guy who cares!! a guy who’s soft sometimes and isn’t ashamed of that!!! he’s the heart of the team!!!! not a device used to throw around for people’s pleasure !!

Do you really think it’s wise to get pissed in full view of any of your men that may stumble in here just before they’re about to embark on the most dangerous journey of their lives? Wise? Probably not. But then there was 36 hours before castoff, so I thought why not live dangerously?
