i’m really fucking sick of other skinny people trying to connect with me via their body hatred, diet/exercise routines, or, worse, through shaming and/or mocking people of larger body types.
i know, i’m thin as fuck, and maybe this is how you usually connect with thin people. but i’m really, really not the one.
i know wayyyy too many people who struggle with disordered eating, depression, and/or intense feelings of disgust and hatred towards their bodies and themselves because of this shaming/hating culture that you are attempting to perpetuate right now. i will have no fucking part in this, thanks.
p.s. fuck you
that awkward moment when people say “aw i miss you in class / on campus” and i’m like uhhhhh…. how are you?!!
because uh, i don’t miss school. i don’t miss hangin around campus, i don’t miss classes, and i don’t miss papers or exams. but nice of you to be thinking of me!
I just had a convo with a parent at my son’s school about how she has to straighten her hair to keep her job. Like her white boss actually came to her & said her kinky hair is not professional enough. I told her what I could about resources for fighting back, but we’re in an at-will state & she’s a black single mom. I doubt she’ll try to fight it since I’m sure she doesn’t have the resources to be out of work & in any kind of protracted legal battle. Today is not a day to talk to me about white privilege or demand that black women be nicer to people who just want to learn/touch our hair/make demands about our bodies. I might make you cry.
how about, instead of talking about how black people in the US have no fight, we instead discuss what kind of fight it has taken to survive this long in a heteronormative white supremacist patriarchy that literally tells someone that their hair (not dyed or cut dramatically, the actual basic texture of their hair) is unsuitable for/incompatible with professionalism and the work environment. let’s talk about how black people in the US are still plugging, still fighting when they can, and still surviving, still. after 400 years of this bullshit every fucking day.

uhmmmm mainstream rap hasn’t been about anything in a long time. it didn’t start with lil wayne, and it certainly has nothing to do with obama. nah, for real. tupac died long before wayne came out. snoop dogg, dr. dre, the dogg pound? ice cube, biggie? i could cite lyrics from every single one of these mufuckas about poppin bottles and making paper and goin to clubs. so don’t start actin like it’s the end of the world when a bunch of people are out to get theirs and not looking out for the race at large~~
and uh, don’t tell me my people don’t have any fight, just because it’s not happening in music videos or on the radio. also, obama? gettin trashed every day by some new asshole trying to find a new way to humiliate/degrade him and make it look like he’s made such a huge mess in all of his 30 seconds in office? you think black people in the US aren’t watching that? you think we don’t notice that conservative white people in the US are always looking for a way to make us look like monsters/rapists/thieves/vile creatures? and that they’ll vote some straightup slapstick fools in the office (come on, even if i was conservative, rick perry, dog?), just because they’re not black. don’t think we don’t know the score of shit, just because lil wayne isn’t talking about it on that last hit he made.
(if you’re looking to wayne for some sick beats and a clever turn of phrase or two, go right on ahead. eat that pussy like a cold pizza. but if you’re looking to him to be the voice of US black people of his generation, get a fucking grip and turn off your tv. open a fucking book or something, jesus christ)
