If the reason you “love” your white partner is because they aren’t like a stereotypical black person, that. is. not. love.
I don’t think it’s appropriation for African Americans to wear paraphernalia that originates from Africa. Our land, language, and culture were stripped away from us. It isn’t our fault that we don’t know which particular African country we come from. It’s important to connect with Africa as an African American. If we knew where exactly we came from it’d be a different story.
It’s important to appreciate blackness in a white supremacist world.
With that same logic Black rappers from the UK are appropriating African American music.
My teacher was talking about how black women make up 80% of consumers of hair care products and how it’s a reflection of self hated.
Some of it could be self hate but what black men don’t understand is that our hair it’s precious and requires a lot of care.
We can’t just buy a cheap bottle of shampoo and expect to feel good about our hair. Whether you have a perm or you’re natural, you’re going to spend money on your hair.
Black hair is not like white hair. We can’t just buy some head and shoulders and be good.
I was disappointed with The Secc$ Tap.e 2 because I was hoping for a long ass tape and the shit had like 6 tracks on it lol.
I’m not sure whether I want to major in Sociology and minor in African American Studies or major in African American Studies and minor in Sociology…
I don’t care what anyone says. Lauryn’s unplugged was a fucking album. Those tracks were so beautiful and thought provoking. I never want her to record them because they’re perfect how they are.
I don’t understand how no one on this site is talking about Nicki Minaj’s use of Malcolm X as the cover for her song “Lookin Ass Nigga”
but when Lupe Fiasco dropped Bitch Bad…
So i’ll never buy into the bullshit that white girl’s hurt feeling over “stereotypes” that they drink starbucks and wear uggs is racism.
Because white parents don’t have to worry about their children getting clapped for listening to Katy Perry “too loud”.
If Jordan Davis was playing ACDC, maybe he’d be alive right now.
There’s a war against Hip-Hop culture but more importantly black youth.
