I love y’all, but some of y’all have to try harder for Black women. Put a little bit more effort into protecting us. Put a little more effort into not tryna force us to accept the bare minimum. Put a little more effort into not policing our hair, bodies, and the way we behave.
Hey Black women,
We can definitely chill on the “niggas ain’t shit” narrative. How do we expect them to rise up if we keep those words on top of their heads? Let’s change the narrative. Even though some black men (and women alike) ain’t shit, EVERYBODY has ain’t Shit tendencies. Let’s pick our brothers up where they fall.
We as a people have to do more loving on each other than condemning everything each of us does. Like seriously. Once we start loving each other, everything else will fall into place.
Black love extends beyond romantic relationships y’all. Don’t forget that.
I love yalls black asses ok?
Edit: By no means do I feel like discontinuing the “niggas ain’t shit” narrative is going to make aint shit niggas go away, but don’t y’all know that speaking things is manifesting them?
Sistas, don’t we want better black men? Let’s manifest them. Don’t stop holding them accountable, and don’t feel a way when they do the same.
i don’t wanna sound like a buzzkill, but i don’t find dababy getting his nudes leaked entertaining, nor do i find it funny. it’s an invasion of privacy. i bet you if it was your college homegirl’s nudes getting leaked you wouldn’t be enjoying it. him being famous isn’t any different.
Welcome to Complexities In Complexion, a safe space for black women to come together and discuss the topics that effect our lives daily. This is a place for honest conversation and well needed support. I will be writing articles focusing on blackness and all that comes with it, as well as highlighting the pieces of our community that need some love and attention.
Fellow black girls feel free to tag this blog in your art and creative endeavours so we can support each other, or send in an ask to get a conversation going. You are loved and never alone, we have one another!
So imma say this and just get it out of the way now, cause I know I’m gonna see a lot of it.
Non Black Chris Evans Fans, I highly recommend you not bring up Chris’ tweet about Botham Jean and Amber Guyger’s sentencing. This is not your lane to discuss.
There are some people who are mad at Chris for calling the display beautiful. Some folks will agree and some will not. Sure the act of forgiveness is beautiful and it takes a lot of strength to be able to forgive, let alone hug the police officer who shot your brother in cold blood. But not all of us have the capacity or the capability.
Black lives have been snuffed out by cops since their creation. After all police forces were made to chase down slaves here in the states. Our history and relationship runs deep and there’s a lot of blood there today. Black people always have to forgive, they always have to put aside their hurt while the white people that hurt them get off with a slap on the wrist.
Botham’s family chose to forgive. Whether or not you agree is up to you, I know I couldn’t do it. That doesn’t make me a bad Christian or anything like that. But I will not comfort someone who will forever cause me pain, while they’re only punished for maybe ten years.
But my message here is to not try to shut down or argue with the black voices that may be discussing this. It’s not your lane and it is most certainly not your pain. There’s gonna be people who will agree or disagree with Chris’ words, but at the end of the day, this wasn’t really his lane either.
A white police officer broke into a black man’s home, shot him and killed him. And not only does she get a light sentence after crying and using tactics like self loathing, but she was comforted by the family, by a baliff, and even the judge hugged her (which is unprofessional and not at all okay. That is a different matter than the family choosing to hug her.) So if you go on Twitter to check out that thread, do it I encourage the read. But do not try to tell black fans of Chris how to feel either way when it comes to this subject. It is not your place.
Instead, I will Be posting some educational links, to go further into why I’ve said what I’ve said in hopes that it helps put into perspective why Chris is getting some flack for this.
