Racial bias in America: from higher suspension rates in preschool, to disproportionate rates of capital punishment, to everything in between, structures of authority routinely allow anti-Black racial bias to color the “facts”, and warp the narrative. And frequently (whether unintentional or otherwise) the police and the media often work together to further criminalize innocent Black victims

This implicit racial bias does not magically stop at innocuous events like the VMAs, or in »Hollywood. So far, it doesn’t ever turn off. There are two Americas and racial bias is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe

>13 kids>justise>suns
Heh

Idk, she can’t spell, maybe she can’t count. HOPEFULLY she doesn’t have that many kids. Oh man, I just realized she said sons. Like, what if she had 20 kids and only 13 of them are boys. Holy shit people. If you fail or drop out of high school, you need to be rendered unable to have children.

Besides the fact that she obviously failed out of school and doesn’t know how to spell a single word…this is probably the longest her feet have ever been on the ground…seeing as they were up in the air 13 times pumping out kids…and the fact that she only mentions boys, makes ya wonder how other kids she has that are girls. By the way, none of her “suns” would be another Trayvon if she actually raised them right in the first place. So apparently she is saying her kids are thugs too.

I still think that sterilization is best for some people.

Why is it okay to make fun of someone for spelling and for having more children than you plan on having because it seems prettttty gross to me

I like how all of these fuckstains assume intelligence is inextricably linked to how well you do with English.

-You don’t know why she had to drop out of school
-you don’t know if she even dropped out of school
-you don’t know why she has 13 kids
-You don’t know if she has a job
-You don’t know if english is her first language. 
-You aren’t a fan of small government if you want to sterilize people
-You don’t know how her sons behave
I’ll pray for your hateful selves. 

Every single one of those racist mother fuckers can eat concrete.
And FUCK YOU FOR SUPPORTING STERILIZATION YOU EUGENICIST PIECE OF SCUM, y’all are fucking unoriginal with this shit at this point.


Pardon me, I have a lot to say.
So this is actually the original picture. Anyone with any common sense could have easily googled this picture to check. The picture at the top was made to make the black “welfare queen” woman stereotype. In fact, the picture at the top can be traced back to a reddit thread as well as four other threads that specifically made fun of black women. Many of them had done other edits with her stomach impregnated etc to laugh at this woman.
Secondly, how dare you fucking talk about this intelligence because of spelling. Many women who came to march, were not limited to just African Americans. As someone who went to one of the marches in Florida, I can tell you that there were many Haitian and Ghanaian women (specifically 2 doctors) who were participating in the marches that I met. English was not their first language, but they were still out there speaking out. Also, speaking two languages means that they probably had much more intelligence then OP’s dumb ass who couldn’t even look up the picture via Google.
Third, Sterilization is the cruelest thing you could say about these people. They deserve to be sterilized because of spelling? They deserve to be sterilized because certain lacks of education (which is actually more the education systems fault then theirs). They deserve to be sterilized because they have more than 2 children? It’s funny because I grantee you this would only be on a picture about how sterilization of a black woman. no one is going to talk about the many white women who have 18+ children and feed off the system way more than any black person. Nope. But that’s a different story for a different time.
OP and anyone who agreed with OP are disgusting shits and need to re-evaluate their lives. Don’t create a post with barely any fact other than your racist, sexist, judgmental viewpoint. 

^^Commentary. 

obvious photoshop is obvious


Tumblr is a breeding ground for false images and information. I had a feeling something was off when I saw that shit. I just did a Google image search and the real image popped up EVERYWHERE.
Do you see why I fucking hate people? OP, you are the epitome of a person who “ain’t shit”.

also of course racist white fucks wouldn’t know that sometimes suns is used to refer to sons but in a way to imply something more than just a son. you wouldn’t fucking know if you don’t know shit, which they clearly don’t. this is so sickening and disgusting. even if she did have 13 kids and spelled the word wrong everything you said would be wrong and foul. this is how trayvon was killed, because of beliefs like this. literally. stop this.

In addition to the brilliant commentary above, I would also like to point out that not one of these racists considered that if the woman did have 13 sons, she may be talking about foster kids or adopted kids. She could have had 13 sons and there would have been nothing wrong with that. However, the idea that there couldn’t have been a single other explanation is very telling of the racist’s mindset. 

Just so you know, logicd (the first comment) is a racist, anti-feminist, islamophobic, white supremacist, white man who is infatuated with Hitler.

"Who is Black?"

reclaimingthelatinatag:

Yesterday, an interesting thing happened to me. I was told I am not Black.

The kicker for me was when my friend stated that the island of Puerto Rico was not a part of the African Diaspora. I wanted to go back to the old school playground days and yell: “You said what about my momma?!” But after speaking to several friends, I found out that many Black Americans and Latinos agree with him. The miseducation of the Negro is still in effect!

I am so tired of having to prove to others that I am Black, that my peoples are from the Motherland, that Puerto Rico, along with Cuba, Panama and the Dominican Republic, are part of the African Diaspora. Did we forget that the slave ships dropped off our people all over the world, hence the word Diaspora?

The Atlantic slave trade brought Africans to Puerto Rico in the early 1500s. Some of the first slave rebellions took place on the island of Puerto Rico. Until 1846, Africanos on the island had to carry a libreta to move around the island, like the passbook system in apartheid South Africa. In Puerto Rico, you will find large communities of descendants of the Yoruba, Bambara, Wolof and Mandingo people. Puerto Rican culture is inherently African culture.

There are hundreds of books that will inform you, but I do not need to read book after book to legitimize this thesis. All I need to do is go to Puerto Rico and look all around me. Damn, all I really have to do is look in the mirror every day.

I am often asked what I am—usually by Blacks who are lighter than me and by Latinos/as who are darker than me. To answer the $100,000, 000 question, I am a Black Boricua, Black Rican, Puertorriqueña! Almost always I am questioned about why I choose to call myself Black over Latina, Spanish, Hispanic. Let me break it down.

I am not Spanish. Spanish is just another language I speak. I am not a Hispanic. My ancestors are not descendants of Spain, but descendants of Africa. I define my existence by race and land. (Borinken is the indigenous name of the island of Puerto Rico.)

Being Latino is not a cultural identity but rather a political one. Being Puerto Rican is not a racial identity, but rather a cultural and national one. Being Black is my racial identity. Why do I have to consistently explain this to those who are so-called conscious? Is it because they have a problem with their identity? Why is it so bad to assert who I am, for me to big-up my Africanness?

My Blackness is one of the greatest powers I have. We live in a society that devalues Blackness all the time. I will not be devalued as a human being, as a child of the Supreme Creator.

Although many of us in activist circles are enlightened, many of us have baggage that we must deal with. So many times I am asked why many Boricuas refuse to affirm their Blackness. I attribute this denial to the ever-rampant anti-Black sentiment in America and throughout the world, but I will not use this as an excuse. Often Puerto Ricans who assert our Blackness are not only outcast by Latinos who identify more with their Spanish Conqueror than their African ancestors, but we are also shunned by Black Americans who do not see us as Black.

Nelly Fuller, a great Black sociologist, stated: “Until one understands the system of White supremacy, anything and everything else will confuse you.” Divide and conquer still applies.

Listen people: Being Black is not just skin color, nor is it synonymous with Black Americans. To assert who I am is the most liberating and revolutionary thing I can ever do. Being a Black Puerto Rican encompasses me racially, ethically and most importantly, gives me a homeland to refer to.

So I have come to this conclusion: I am whatever I say I am!

Who is Black byRosa Clemente, organizer, independent journalist and hip-hop activist of Puerto Rican descent. 

While Drake’s definition of black beauty may seem limited, his definition of black identity is what Touré would call ‘post-black,’ and Michelle Wright would call ‘postwar diasporic black.’ Drake’s flow in ‘Poetic Justice’ facilitates a broader discussion of black identity and black authenticity, a discussion that implicitly critiques Marcia Gillespie’s ‘white woman dipped in chocolate’ statement, positing that East African Girls ‘come from’ the same city Drake does, Toronto. The underlying message is that Drake considers us black like him. Drake, as a black Jewish man whose Degrassi character Jimmy Brooks dated a fake East African Girl, occupies a similarly hybrid space like East African Girls. For many East African Girls, that feels like poetic justice because the definition of ‘authentically black’— descendants of Africans brought here as slaves— is a limited definition that doesn’t even include Barack Obama, much less East African Girls.

Anonymous asked: So I have a low blood quantum (1/8), and I have been catching shit from people for trying to learn my ancestor's language/culture. Do you think I should not post about native issues? Am I not native enough at this point? Ironically no natives have complained, it's only been from white people

lastrealindians:

Hell nah. You go right on learning about your Native culture and language and post whatever you want.
