I need to acquire some food and I don’t feel like coming back to the library so um peace out
"I used to be a preschool teacher, but I got fired."
“Well, I decided that I wanted to have a socially conscious class. So we learned about apartheid in South Africa. Then we learned about homelessness. Then we made mother’s day cards for Trayvon Martin’s mom. And I think the principal decided that it was too much for three and four year olds, because she told me I wasn’t a ‘good fit.’ But honestly, I was just shining too bright for them. And now she’s going to see me on Humans of New York, and she’ll be sorry!”
I should just move to West Chester (PA) because seriously the only people who ever wanna date me live in West Chester. Something in the water, I guess.
"Are you thinkin’ of comin’?"
"No. No, I’m not. It would mess up all the lifts and stuff anyway."
I only date people that take pride in eating the puss.
totsdarkplace asked: Any thoughts on the "Guy Brings His White Girl To Barbershop In Harlem And Gets Hated On By Black Hairdresser" video going around? I get the point of it, but I see a lot of people interpreting it as "being racist against white people"/"reverse racism" when that really ISN'T the case. Any thoughts?
I just watched the video and like sure, whatever, I get the point but a few things:
- It erases the racialized antiblack misogyny (misogynoir) that black women face every single day within our community which manifests itself in many black men openly shaming and shitting on black women. Anger and frustration about that is posited as the “irrational” position of a “reverse racist”
- It oversimplifies frustrations about white supremacy which elevate white female bodies while conversely denigrating those of black women, and which leads to many black men flaunting and treating white women (and light skinned mixed women) far better than they do black women.
- It draws false equivalencies between the discrimination that particular white woman faced in that instance and the institutional nature of racism making it easy for viewers to blandly state that reverse racism exists when it doesn’t.
I am mixed myself and of course don’t see there as being anything wrong with interracial relationships, but these bland inaccurate oversimplifications of issues which are far more complex than “oh my god that black girl is reverse racist against white girls in interracial relationships” are just so boring and irritating.
This video makes me so damn uncomfortable. Like I don’t fucking know how to deal with it. This commentary is spot on.

The brunette part is really important.
Fun fact, our hair color reveals our place in pansexual society. Blondes are our record keepers. The great librarians, they collect, analyze, store, and distribute information to the rest of us. They are blonde because they reflect the light of knowledge. Those with Black Hair are our inventors. They investigate, produce, and teach new technologies so that we may thrive in future times. Their hair is black because of their frequent dives into the void of the unknown. Burnettes are our ambassadors. They interact with people, plants, and animals, forging bonds that can protect us when we are threatened. Their hair is brown because of their deep connection to the earth.
And as for redheads.
You don’t want to know the purpose of the Red Heads. But may their hellfire consume our enemies.
