don’t fret the mistakes, just learn from them and carry on with your wonderful self!
if and when I do have an attitude it has absolutely nothing to do with my gender or race….
an individual personality trait is no way a reflection of entire group of people
the question you should be asking is why do only black girls have this reputation?
I agree with this, but I think sometimes it has everything to do gender and/or race. Think about the bullshit Black women, and other women of color have to put up with on the daily, just because we exist, we dare to take up space in a white supremacist patriarchy. So yeah, some of us have an attitude. For some of us, that attitude is survival.
Instead of lookin’ at us, why don’t you ridicule that racist, sexist attitude people in power be giving off.
yup, you’d be on edge if people were CONSTANTLY fucking with you. you’d also be on edge if people were constantly expecting you to be or asking you why you’re on edge. it’s like being poked with a sharp stick all day long.
a discussion we had in WLC concerning women.
What got me was the fact that the two black girls couldn’t fathom being chosen first.
"It seems like preferences are okay as long as it’s not Black women. But then it’s also not okay for Black women to have preferences other than Black men."
But why is anyone surprised though? Everyday you get the same message that a black woman is not beautiful, is not special, is not anything. The whole world shits on black women and we at the bottom of the rung when it comes to everything and that includes love and appreciation.
Eh fuck I didn’t need to cry today
This didn’t surprise me at all but I’m not gonna lie, I’d think he was lying at first too. Good looking men like that are gassed to that they don’t have to stay with their lowly race. They have options. So id be a little suspect too. But that sucks. But only black girls us before others and not even always so yea. *sigh*
It’s all about perception though.
I used to be like those black women, I used to put everyone above myself. I used to buy into what the media had to say about black women too. I used to view myself as well as all other black women as the bottom of the barrel until I got sick of feeling like the most undesirable women in the room and I found my self worth.
And now that I’ve found my self worth NOBODY can tell me shit. I’m special, I’m unique and so are all other black women and men in general love us. That’s my reality, that’s my experience as a black women in love with herself and all that look like her. We stand out and everything about us is TOP NOTCH. Negativity goes in one ear and out the other. Media can tell us how they want us to think, but they can’t tell us who we are, we make that decision. When you change your perception about yourself the garbage about black women aint shit has no effect on you. It may have you in your feelings about it for a small amount of time because we’re human and we have our weak moments, but that shit never holds me down for long.
I look at myself and other black women like wow, that’s GOD. Like this black girl just started working at my job recently, there aren’t many of us of course lol.. But when I see this chick walk by and we smile and wave at each other I get nervous almost, I guess it’s butterflies lol because her smile is EVERYTHING, her presence is EVERYTHING, I get sooo geeked lol. That’s how I feel about myself as well. It blows my mind because of how the media and men paint us sometimes.. I never thought I’d be at this point in my like where black women are this great to me. I used to hate us because of how I was conditioned to believe that we were the ones on the bottom. Now I realize that when you love yourself nothing anyone has to say holds any weight. If we as black women change our perception about ourselves then we wouldn’t be concerned about being at the top of anybody’s list because we would be at the top of our own list and that’s better than any thing else. I realize that what society has to say about us makes it extremely difficult to be confident in our skin, but society can talk as much shit as they want to but at the end of the day society and it’s view of us does not define us if we don’t let it.
We define us. So if you see comments bashing dark women or just black women in general, understand that it’s a YOU thing. It’s all about YOU and how you view yourself. Change the way you see yourself and other black women.
"It is the pinnacle of all human emotion. More passionate than hope, far deeper than despair. Love.”
cause that other list. The clothes for that site was wack
DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
