john lennon syndrome?

neptunain answered:

john lennon syndrome is when a dumbass thinks they’re concerned about peace and social issues and believe they are in touch with nature when in reality they just say the n word, smoke weed, throw a bunch of hindu and buddhist imagery together and call it “inner peace,” and don’t shower. you probably know a lot of these people

if you say it, its also racist

if my neighbor says it, its racist

if my doctor says it, its racist

if my professor says it, its racist

if you make fun of another race based on its negative…

So I was just wondering why it's not okay for white girls to have Bantu knots or baby bangs, but it's okay for girls of color to have long blonde straight hair? It just seems like double standards to me. Shouldn't fashion be available for whoever wants express themselves in whatever way they choose?

black--lamb answered:

why is it ok for white people to define the standards of beauty, but whenever a black women even begins to love her natural hair it’s considered “exclusive” or “cocky”?

why is it called “ghetto” or “ratchet” whenever i embrace styles natural to my culture but it’s “classy” and “alternative” when a white girl in Vogue does it?

why is “being black” a phase for white people (who then can always go back to being white again and still receive the benefits of their privilege) but it’s something i need to tone down in order to get a job?

why is it that i have/still get denied access into public places because of my natural hair and skin color?

why is it that a black boy with a hoodie is considered “dangerous” when a white boy with a gun is called “emotionally unstable”?

why is it that we must never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust or Pearl Harbor but i’m supposed to get over the effects of slavery?

why is it ok for white people to talk about their 1/3 German, 1/4 French, etc roots, but the rest of us are “immigrants” who need to “go back where we came from”?

why is it that Ebola has been killing brown people for years, but it’s suddenly curable when someone with white skin contracts it?

basically white people will spend so much time worried about stupid shit like why they cant use other cultures as fashion or why they cant say the n word…

So go ahead and rock your box braids..nobody is stopping you..the rest of us will be busy dodging the system of oppression that’s forced upon us every single day…It just seems like double standards to me. 

but i mean shouldn’t basic human rights be available for everyone???

a public service announcement

I still don’t understand why none of my art teachers ever told us this.

Probs coz sometimes people gotta learn stuff for themselves

I don’t even know why my art teachers ever told us ‘red yellow and blue’ were the primary colors of the color wheel. Like that just seemed so fake to me.

Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless.

"What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)

We should also note that Black Women are perceived and fetishized as hyper sexual. Which is why mainstream feminists willingly call Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry revolutionary and in charge of their bodies meanwhile demonizing Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce.

This is just a reminder that a lot of our natural hair products and lines are owned by white companies and they really don’t care about us, so buy black, it actually goes back into our community!

Black owned:

Non black:

  • African pride 
  • Soft& Beautiful Botanicals
  • Care free curl
  • Dark and lovely Au naturale
  • Motions naturally you
  • Dr. Miracle’s Curl Care
  • Sof n’ Free Gro Healthy Nothing But
  • ORS curls unleashed (Organic root stimulator)
  • Pantene truly natural
  • Naturally Silk Elements

There are so many more that can be added to each list. Bottom line, help black business. And an added bonus to helping our community out is a lot of the lines are more natural or Vegan. 

More black owned natural hair additions, cus why not?

More non-black owned

Support black business!

Carol’s daughter is no longer black owned??

Wow.

A lot of shit makes sense now.

This is actually very good to know

For all my naturals!

“oh, there are pictures.. I keep them where I need the most cheering up.”

For those who don’t know the story behind this:

Before Maggie was born, Homer Simpson worked at the Nuclear Plant because he needed the money to pay for all the debt. Once Homer Simpson finally payed the debt, he quit his job to work at his dream job at the bowling alley. When Homer Simpson found out that Marge was pregnant with Maggie, he became depressed that he had to quit his job at the bowling alley because the salary couldn’t support them. When Homer Simpson begged Mr. Burns for his old life back, he put a plaque that reads “Don’t Forget: You’re Here Forever.” When Maggie was born, Homer instantly fell in love with her. When Lisa asked Homer where did all Maggie’s baby pictures went, Homer explains that he keeps it where he needs it the most.

i cant handle this 

My favorite Simpsons episode ever.

To play this game, go to MapCrunch, select “hide location”, make sure you have all countries unselected, and click go. What this will do is drop you in a random part of the world. It’s as if you woke up on the side of a road in an unfamiliar country. The goal of the game is to find your way to an airport so you can return home. 
Bonus Hard Mode: No using outside sources, and that includes using google maps to figure out your location from signs or landmarks

…I had plans today but now.

Here I go…

Is that a road?
*squint*
No…that’s a glacier.


Yo check out this super neat rock…

Oh good…more glaciers.
Ok, I give up…where am I?

fucking Antarctica?!?
