I need time alone
Time away from this foreign language
Time to be in my feelings
Time to feel and not feel
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
Rihanna with Lupita Nyong’o at the Miu Miu fashion show
I can’t wait to receive my tea stained journal ajhhhh
I’m not not finish unpacking
Our room is total mess
I have no interest in getting it together sign
Today I must try and get everything in order
But if I’m not tried after work.
or like factually incorrect.
I keeps hearing “it’s my opinion it can’t be wrong.” Well if it’s an opinion and you’re not attempting to state a fact then it can’t be right either.
It can be offensive, problematic, stupid, uninformed, and/or bullshit tho.
so very important
This is cute but please
Don’t trash another black woman and her artistry to praise another
Both nicki and Lupita are positive and talented role models
FUCK EVERYONE WHO THINKS THIS IS CUTE.
HOW YOU GONNA THROW NICKI IN THE BIN???
THEY ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT.
this is ridiculous, saddening, and even a little disturbing. yes, lupita is fabulous but can we NOT put her on this pedestal of perfection, a pedestal that respectability politics play SUCH large role in to begin with? can we understand that just because lupita is beautiful, poised, articulate, and educated it does not make her “better than” women who are not? these things do make her wonderful, and they are certainly (and unfortunately) a big part of why hollywood has chosen to embrace her, but they are not the totality of her being and one day she might fuck. in fact she WILL fuck up. so let’s just all calm down and not use our excitement over what her success means as an excuse to put down other black women who may not fit the perfect mold she slides into so well.
