i think it’s important to note that just because someone knows how to formulate a well sounding argument it does not mean what they’re saying is right, educated or worthy of praise. be critical of everything + everyone regardless of who it is- myself included.
your fav isn’t problematic. they’re just racist.
Porn is honestly so gross and it’s even grosser when people who know it’s wrong watch it anyway cuz they think it’s somehow justified under “supporting sex workers” like stop lying to urself
whoever asked me for etsy stores i’ve been spending all night making a master post :———)
HAHA i mean i don’t live there anymore (i went to college in chicago/just recently moved to nyc) but that’s where i grew up/where my family is. i go home fairly often now that i’ve moved back east. i’ve probably spent a collective 200 years walking around ppm / thayer.
it really depends on how much of those non-white cultures they truly are. white people always like to say like no no no i’m white but i’m also 9.2% native american so jokes on you and i’m just like ok no time for you goodbye
if that’s not the case, no i would not consider them white just bc that’s the color of their skin, that would be erasing their culture and i’m not here for that. the biggest component in these situations is to realize you pass as white and understand the privileges that come with that regardless of your cultural dna. my younger sister for example is as i am; portuguese, venezuelan, jamaican, lil bit irish and french. she identifies as those cultures but is often presumed as just white. she is proud of being black + portuguese + latina just as much as i am and when asked what she is will say those things but she realizes the privileges she has because of the color of her skin.
The stereotype of the “strong black women” has been damaging to black women in more ways than I can count. It perpetuates this idea that black women are supposed to be able to handle anything and do it in humble silence. It stunts the range of emotion we are allowed to express for fear of not living up to the standard, of being deemed weak
