Salute to the indomitable spirit and formidable grit within the grip of the original woman.
All praises due to the Black woman!
NEVER Forget what they did…
there is no way nobody noticed that
Ok this? Not cool. Not only do you take a historically significant moment in Black History and use it as a template for your picture, you change the two BLACK MEN holding up the BLACK POWER FIST into WHITE QUEER MEN when you could have just as easily left them as two black men.
Black gay men exist– black queer people exist across the spectrum– and it’s bad enough that we’re often sidelined and cast in the shadows of white queer people- especially white gay cis men, who tend to be lifted up as the poster children for the queer movement- and that the LGBT movement is often equated to that of the black rights movement while oftentimes outright IGNORING black queer people and other queer POC, but to outright remove black people- using a visual black symbol of resistance against white supremacy- from a black moment to make this photo just throws it back in our face.
Y’all can keep that shit.
This shit had me soooo tight! I was like really?!?! i coulda really fucked with it if it were still 2 black men..but nah.
white gay men are a whole nother breed of shits
Thing that gets me is the person who created this was called out and kept trying to defend it saying he had originally created it for the Olympics (which is why there’s snow) like that makes it any better.
EXACTLY! That makes it NO better because it’s still black erasure from a black history moment. Even if it wasn’t made specifically for today, it’s beyond poor taste and straight up disrespectful to use it anyway.
This is a false equivalence. Changing hair color is not the same as Blackface. With the exception of Tiny cosmetically changing her eye color, none of the other women have tried to change their race. None of the real Black women have pretended to be white for 10 years, placed themselves in white spaces as leaders, nor have they attempted to explain issues that effect white people in America.
Why do ya’ll go so hard for white women to drag Black women?
Who told white people they own blonde hair?
The side of Michael Jackson they don’t show you: his ACTUAL RACE.
On 6th February 1984, after winning an unprecedented number of AMA awards Michael spoke to black publication JET magazine about people in his life he was thankful for; Stevie Wonder, who expresses pride of race in his music.
“That’s why I love Stevie Wonder’s album called Songs in The Key of Life… He had a song called Black Man and I just jumped up screaming when I heard that record because he’s showing the world what the Black man has done and what other races have done… He named it Black Man and all these people who have got the album sing it. And that’s the best way to bring about the truth.”
We – and by we, I mean, white feminists – need to talk about how Dylann Storm Roof, the Charleston terrorist, used white female purity to justify murdering black people.
“I have to do it,” he said. “You rape our women.”
This myth – that black men rape and assault white women – has been used to justify the murder of black people for centuries. It was used to justify lynchings. It was used to justify slavery. It is still used today.
And white feminists absolutely NEED TO REPUDIATE this myth, because white women’s tacit approval – and sometimes vocal agreement – with this myth is part of what allows this terrorism to happen.
People like Dylann Storm believe white women need to be protected from black men.
I stand in solidarity with the black community, not with people like Dylann Storm. He does not speak for me.
and then he killed black women.
