A story of school integration.

Reminder: Schools today are more segregated than they were in the 60s. They figured out other means of keeping you out of their schools.

msamberpriley “Fucking monkeys still doing tricks master taught them. Thinking she can speak to me. Their day is coming” I walked in and grabbed my gloves and said “have a blessed night ladies”. I forgot this type of ignorance still existed. I didn’t even for a moment think the reason she looked at me with such disdain was because I was black. I forgot everyone isn’t as free as the rest of us mentally. That’s why I thank God for black history month, it reminds me of how far we have all come in the states. It keeps me encouraged in moments like this. I wasn’t even angry, I was sad. She’ll never know the friends she may miss because she can’t get pass something as inconsequential as color. I am so glad that I was taught to love beyond my differences to others. Thanks mom and dad. I could never live a life of such ignorance. Now I’m going to go sit at a table for dinner with all different colors and races and laugh and talk with my friends. Happy Black History Month, let’s continue to grow together 🙌💚❤️💛

I can’t. Raw hate like this makes me so upset. I actually got in my car, started to heat it up, and I’d left the radio on. ‘What A Wonderful World’ was playing as I plugged in my phone to charge and read my notifications, including this post of Amber’s. And I just sat there in shock and cried. I don’t understand how people can be so hateful. To complete strangers. That’s just awful. 


this shit happens too damn much to me.

In a bizarre incident, an HIV-infected former Lindenwood University student knowingly had unprotected sex with over 30 people and exposed his sexual partners to the deadly virus that causes AIDS. He allegedly had sexual encounters without informing his sexual partners that he was HIV-positive.
Twenty-two-year old Michael Johnson, who calls himself “Tiger Mandingo” on his online profiles, is a former wrestler at Lindenwood University in St Charles, Missouri.
In a probe, Police officials found a cache of videos of Johnson engaging in unprotected sex with at least 31 people. Investigating officials believe none of Johnson’s sexual partners, whom he met via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, were aware of the fact that he had been filming their sexual activities or that he had HIV.
St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar said, “On that laptop were 32 videos (of partners) engaged in sexual acts with Mr. Johnson; it’s safe to say that numerous of those videos were taken inside his dorm room; we know that because we recognise the furniture,” reports Huff Post.
Police were alerted about Johnson’s scary and gruesome crime when a man told the St. Charles Police Department that he had been diagnosed with gonorrhea and had become infected with HIV a month after having sex with Johnson in his university dorm room.
In October 2013, Johnson was charged with intentionally spreading the lethal virus to at least 31 people. In November, four other victims surfaced with the same complaints that resulted in four additional felony counts filed against him. It is only this month he is also accused of setting up a secret camera to record himself having unprotected sex with his gay partners over a period of 4 months.
Lohmar is now appealing for anyone who had sex with Johnson to come forward and contact the St. Charles Detective Bureau at 636-949-3330, adding, “It’s a matter of not only their individual safety, but public safety as well.”
If convicted of knowingly transmitting the virus, Johnson could even face life behind bars.

I will never understand why anyone intentionally does this.

Blacks don’t care. They just want “bitches,” period. No concern for others. They live in their own worlds.

And all whites care about is killing people, enslaving people, stealing land, and not properly washing themselves all of which has been supported by historical evidence yet you take this one incident to say that all blacks care about is “bitches” when all I hear white frat boys talk about is fucking girls and laughing about it the next day? Get yourself together.

and white motherfuckers wanna cry “reverse racism” all day long but act like they don’t see racism against us

CAN WE STOP PITTING WOMEN AGAINST EACH OTHER? THAT WOULD BE NICE.

BUT WHAT WE CAN DO IS NOTE THAT THE WOMAN OF COLOR SOLD ALL OF THESE RECORDS WITHOUT ACCESSING THE NEOLIBERAL ORDER IN THE SAME WAY AS THESE WHITE WOMEN; SHE DID SO WITHOUT BEING A RACIST, A TOKENIZER, OBJECTIFYING OF OTHER WOMEN’S BODIES, OR PURPORTING TO SPEAK FOR OTHER GROUPS OF MARGINALIZED, OPPRESSED-IN-WAYS-SHE-IS-NT GROUPS OF PEOPLE; SHE CREATED THE FEMINIST ALBUM OF CONTEMPORENEITY BY HARVESTING BUT NOT DAMAGING TODAY’S SALIENT CULTURAL CAPITAL, WITHOUT HAVING TO SHAME, DEGRADE, OR REJECT ANYONE FOR LIKING AND BEING ATTRACTED TO POP CULTURAL PHENOMENA AND EPHEMERA.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

yo i get the Miley cultural appropriation (twerk miley twerk) and Britney before she fell off the sanity wagon (see Janet Jackson) but how does this apply to Katy and Gaga. i feel like both are usually pretty good about being human beings and not mindlessly continuing a cycle of racism

both Gaga and Katy Perry have done racist shit that they have yet to acknowledge, much less apologize for. it’s a shame, really; especially for gaga, she has so much talent and potential.

A FEW of the 1000+ comments that the nice little racist decided to leave on one of my pictures (that someone took and wrote on) and posted on a facebook fan page.

This was one of the craziest weekends ever, I was even receiving HATE MAIL. Never in my years of modeling have I experienced that amount of hate..

And yet I just scrolled past a post in which a crackers asks why the OP had to put “Black girls are beautiful” THIS is why you dickhead.

Honestly, this picture is racist as fuck.
It’s saying that the MOST beautiful women come from Africa.
Which says that women from every other country can’t be as beautiful. Which is 1) rude as fuck 2) fucking racist.
And the fact that people can’t see that upsets me.

WOW. So its not the people calling her a coon that you find racist. Not the people saying she should be an animal on National Geographic magazine. Not saying all blacks are ugly inside and out. Not saying that she escaped a cotton field. 

Its the fact that because Black women hear shit like that constantly and are trying to have confidence and remind themselves that all of these things are not true, whether you like they way they say it or not, THAT is what you have a problem with. She is literally saying that because Black women receive shit like THIS when we say we’re beautiful. So we try to give ourselves confidence and receive hate. And you’re biggest problem is not her being called a cotton picking slave but saying the most beautiful women come from Africa. The reversal of the VERY POPULR statement that the most UGLY women come from Africa. So that is not only what you have the biggest problem with but what you’re choosing to focus on. Not her being degraded. 

Shut the fuck up. The fact that you’re an idiot and you can’t see it is what upsets me. Honestly, you’re a rude, racist sympathizing piece of shit. 

I’m wasn’t saying I don’t have a problem with that. I was saying that I had a problem with the original statement.
If I call someone a nigger, I’m going to expect to be called a cracker back.
If I say something racist, I will expect something racist back.
The original statement was racist, so they got racism back.
They were defending their race, just like the original girl was. Sure, the way they went around it was racist. But they were both bagging on a race.
So how about you look at the big picture instead?

I don’t often respond to white racists but you’re so irrational I couldn’t help it. What you’re saying makes no sense. You’re saying it’s justified to call black folks animals and ugly because of a post that is meant to uplift black women.

Nobody said cracker anywhere in the original post. And even so to say that’s equal to the word N-Word (which you have no right to be typing out) is naive and historically inaccurate. There is no word in English that denotes as much hatred and oppression as the N Word.

White women get real silly in their arguments when beauty standards aren’t focused on them. Good thing it doesn’t happen often, right? Lol

Wow, the old “It’s okay to be racist back because the original source was ‘omg racist to whites’”.

I’m still trying to figure out what the words on this picture have to do with white people? Why did they feel it was necessary to defend their race when it wasn’t attacking them in the first place….

Reading these comments…man it’s quite disgusting.

"If I call someone a nigger, I’m going to expect to be called a cracker back."

no if u call someone a nigger expect to get elbowed in your shit

Taken from the October issue of Ebony Magazine; I’m pretty sure it is readable from the photos I took. The first sentence of this article is extremely poignant;

"This is not a pleasant conversation to have with you because, in a sense, it is an acknowledgement that we have not created a world for you where this talk isn’t necessary."

Read that. Then read it again. And again. And marinate on that for a bit.

I never much care of people reblog stuff I post, but I hope people reblog this, because it’s pretty important on a lot of different levels.
