White women need to deal with the fact that most of you voted for Trump. It’s the not the job of black women or any marginalised and oppressed person to take responsibility for the actions of their oppressor or to educate their oppressor.

This is my new strategy for white people who ask "Do you work here?"

I can’t tell you how many nice (and not-so-nice) white women have walked up to me in a store to ask me where something is, how much something costs, or to otherwise find out information she should be getting from an employee who MUST BE ME because I am a brown person nearby on the salesfloor.  Nevermind whether I have on an overcoat, I’m wearing headphones, or I have a complete lack of nametag, apron, or company t-shirt, I still get asked all the time “Do you work here?”

Before, my standard response was to pause for just enough beats to make her uncomfortable and then say, “No I don’t.  What about me made you think I work here?  And please be specific.”  Face crack.  Every single time.

Thanks to a friend’s comment thread on the Internet, I have a new tactic.

Pretend you do work there!!  It’s brilliant.  Observe.

White Woman:  How much is this shirt?
Me:  The sign is right there.  Can you not read it?
White Woman:  I was just making sure to see if it was on sale.  No need to be rude.
Me: No need to be stupid.  The sign has the price.  The tag has the same price.  Therefore, that’s the price.  Why are you bothering me with this?
White Woman:  Well I never!  I need to speak to the manager!
Me:  Fine, so do I.  I don’t even like this store.
[we march to customer service]
White Woman:  I’d like you to fire this employee immediately.  He was SO RUDE and I’m going to take my business elsewhere unless he is fired right now!
Manager:  I don’t think –
White Woman:  [”I was told by Applecare” voice] YOU DON’T THINK!?  I’M CALLING CORPORATE!
Me:  And say what?  That a perfect stranger with no nametag, apron, company ID, or any other sign of being an employee was mean to you in a store?  Susan I don’t even work here.  I just felt like making you look like the ass you clearly are.  Have a nice day.

Like…I’m finna go shopping RIGHT NOW just to test it out.  I’ma put on my big obnoxious hipster headphones just so there’s no reason whatsoever someone would think I’d be on the clock, and I’ma casually walk through a store and just wait.  And I happen to be wearing black jeans and a black jacket, which is the unofficial NYC uniform of fast-fashion retail.  And H&M is like three blocks away too…

You’ve got to watch this speech from the Philadelphia Women’s March that implores white women to think about who they’re really marching for

“Intersectionality ensures that we listen to our each other’s experiences beyond our personal understanding,” said speaker Ericka Hart. “Intersectionality takes time and forces us to be intentional in our inclusion. Intersectionality centers those who are most marginalized, those who are always fighting for their lives regardless of who is president.”

WATCH THE FULL SPEECH

My favorite thing is when a White Woman loses to a Black Woman in any sport or physical activity and instead of just admitting and realizing that she’s not as good as she thought she was or that you can’t win everything…

She’ll go “Well… y'know… it’s not fair because she’s a Black Girl”. Then you ask her what she means and she goes “Black girls are like unnaturally strong so it’s like not fair uwu. Science says”.

And it’s just like, no Becky you just suck. Plain and simple keep it moving with them White Woman tears.

the most absurd part of the Shea Moisture scandal

Shea Moisture put a white woman complaining about “hair hate” in their commercial. Black women literally get expelled, fired, not even hired for wearing their hair natural. Her example of “hair hate” was being a redhead and so she changed her hair to blonde. I know we’re dragging them for this ad but that part of the commercial (for me) was the most absurd.

Don't you get sick of looking at thin white women 24/7 365? Cos I do
Black is Gold

they steal her curls.
they steal her fro.
they steal her features,
and become her clone

they take her style
then claim it as their own,

she has built their mask
she has become their mold,
they leave her blackness
and the gold within her soul

isn’t it fucking wonderful to know that a stupid white girl can become famous and go on talk shows for acting like a “ratchet” and “ghetto” black woman but when actual black women act this way, we get killed, ostracized, have shitty stereotypes assigned to us and basically be called trash? isn’t that fucking amazing to know that our “ghettoness” can be commodified by ANYONE but US?

Audrey ain’t shit, but she’s honestly one of  the funniest character on TV right now.
