KKK handed out flyers last night in St. Louis area (10/09)
it reads, “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!”
Wow these same flyers were found on my school’s campus in Indiana!
Oh and the phone number and webpage are 1-888-276-6760 and their page is traditionalistamericanknights.com
yeah she’s cute and all but is her feminism intersectional?
You’ve described my entire existence.
Yep. Same here. The first thing this Uncle Tom guy said after I responded was “Who gives a fuck you runaway slave lookalike”. The truth was given that he was and Uncle Tom and I knew it I just responded sarcastically with “Aww, Colorism! (hearts) Just because you think being like-skin automatically makes you better, it doesn’t change the fact that you are still an idiot.” and trust me, the dude was an idiot.
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
The interesting part is that they farmed her with white women and the ultimate symbols of white imperialism: British Royals.
We are called angry Black women because we are not afraid of bare arms. We pay close attention to our arms, holding our children tight inside of them. We are called angry Black women because we use our arms to wave to each other, because we boldly swing our arms when we walk, because we know arms reach out, give regard, sometimes we even hire haute couture designers who have done their homework, who know we are no armless hipless mannequins.
I have decided that when I hear another fine Black woman fallaciously referred to as an angry Black woman during Black History Month this year, that I will stop whatever I am in the middle of and meditate on my personal list of other Black women who had great regard for their bare arms: Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells Barnett, Barbara Jordan, Modjeska Monteith Simkins, Lorraine Hansberry, Beulah Butler Davenport (grandmother), Frances Davenport Finney (mother), as well as the fierce line of great aunts: Otelia, Nanny, Mary, Bertha. Here on these sacred black winged things, I will zoom and linger for the duration. Black amber, caramel, elegant, muscular, long, pillow-like, black bare arms akimboed at the hip or side. American history has not acknowledged the black arms of Black women. But Black History knows the arms of Black women very well.
Black arms on Black women are valuable apparatuses: for escaping, pointing to North Star freedom; recruiting Black troops for the Union Army; penciling notions of women’s suffrage; documenting, detailing the horrors of lynching (circa 1892), and thereby inventing investigative journalism in America; pecking out, scene by scene, manual typewriter blazing the timeless A Raisin In The Sun. Brave black arms assist in the raising of a historical hand. Remember that day in the House of Representatives, 1972, ‘the Inquisitor’ she called herself at the impeachment hearings for President Richard Nixon. Bare black arms show up like early travel signage of American history: STOP— GO - TURN HERE. To make a young country stronger, better, more just.
Black arms on Black women defended themselves from raging policemen and sex-crazed guardians of the old guard. Wiser Black arms taught us to high fly our younger Black arms like proud banners of the Black country we dreamed our lives forward from. The Black arms of the Black women of so many families drove buses and carried weighty purses that doubled as hammerheads. Barriers might need dismantling between breakfast and supper…
Being black is not an accessory for us. We ARE black.
When it’s “cool” AND when it’s life threatening.
Meanwhile all the little “I’m going through my black phase” white people are nowhere to be found.
Black men are being shot and killed because of an irrational fear of the “big black thug myth” and y’all want to profit from some “thug” shit? What’s thug about cooking? I bet its the same old bland white people food with misused, co-opted. AAVE used to describe it. Get the fuck out of here thugkitchen. Y’all should be ashamed of yourselves. I know that’s a lot to ask because y’all are white and white people have no shame when it comes to appropriation
Look at what the fuck we got in the mail this morning. Less than a month away until the dopest cookbook ever drops.
Preorder your copy now or get left behind this fall.
nah bruh, can’t support this shit at all.
I definitely can’t fuck with it, especially since the authors are white. Black Americans literally can’t get jobs because they speak this dialect, but when white people do it all of a sudden it’s edgy and novel. Just another example of white people profiting off of doing something black people have been persecuted for.
We’ve been dehumanized since the beginning
The thing that’s so disgusting about the murders of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Sean Bell etc (a very long list) is that it’s not like we’re trying to figure out who killed them. We know perfectly well. We’re just trying to figure out if that black kid deserved to die. They’re humanity is put on trial, like being a person wasn’t enough. Black people literally have to prove that we’re worthy of living.
Part of the reason all these white female celebrities have such bad feminism is because you white feminists keep letting them get away with having such bad feminism.

A south suburban man allegedly stabbed an elderly black woman in a Homewood grocery store because of her race.
Pol Danilov, 26, told police following his arrest that he attacked the senior citizen with a steak knife because she was black and an “easy target,” Cook County prosecutors said.
The 79-year-old woman was stabbed four times, in the back and neck Friday morning at Walt’s Food Store at 2345 183rd Street. The five-inch knife also punctured a lung, authorities said.
Danilov, of the 18400 block of Harwood Avenue in Homewood, remained in the store after the stabbing and was arrested.
He had a knife on him he was apprehended and told police “he believed the victim was vulnerable based on age and race,” police said.
Prosecutors said Danilov has a history of animosity against African-Americans. But Danilov said in court Saturday that he had “no recollection” of that history.
He was ordered held on a $500,000 bond on Saturday for attempted murder and committing a hate crime.
The victim was taken to a hospital and is “expected to make a full recovery,” according to police.
And the motherfucker stayed in the store until the police came. AND he lives to see another day because they didn’t feel threatened by him.
But THEY are scared of US.
He had no fear
He knew he wasnt going to be harmed by the police
