blackfeminism:

non-black women of color have privileges over Black Women when they come to the u.s. don’t come to me saying “women in the u.s. don’t experience oppression, women in India have it so much worse” my roommate kept repeating “it doesn’t matter how educated you are, it’s just true” and i tried to say…

Why do black men feel like me as a black woman owes them something. 97% of street harassment I face comes from black men. Why y’all doing this? The same nigga gonna call me a ugly, fat, white mans whore in the next breath from calling me beautiful Nubian queen or some shit.

They are ignorant, rude and disrespectful. They dont respect us, it’s horrible. God forbid you say something to them to defend yourself then youre all types of bitches smfh

"don’t gas these hoes up…"

femmelillies:

loosely translates to; “don’t let these women know they are attractive/intelligent/interesting/worthy/unique because they may actually believe it and not want to deal with low level fuckboys like myself.”

No lies detected.

karly-warly:

Black men don’t love black women. How can black men love black women when we violate her, assault her, rape her, kill her, dehumanize her? How can we claim to love black women if we continuously perpetuate violence against her? We cannot love black women while perpetuating patriarchy. We cannot…

yeah no

i’m not one of those people that will preach unconditional sex positivity

because some people’s “kinks” are having sex with children

and rubbing their genitals on random people on the train

so na

miss me with the lectures about “kink shaming”

because there is a line

and way too many people cross it

Anonymous said: hi- awesome blog but I have question what do you think about people in mixed relationship sharing cultures? do you think it counts as cultural appropriation if people can access other cultures through family

thehighpriestofreverseracism:

nah, thats cultural exchange…but that depends on the people tbh, if someone is going to a cultural event and you are taking your partner with you to take part in your culture and customs and you are okay with that good for you…

this is a individual thing so I don’t think there is a concrete answer..

……I should warn you I am REALLY anal about my culture ….so much so that I can admit its abit extreme but Idc ….I don’t personally appreciate when people take part in anything that has to do with my own…I tend to avoid foreigners I don’t know at things like weddings etc….. heck I don’t even like hearing foreigners speaking to me in my mother tongue ( learn it if you want…but don’t talk to me with it)…all of that shit really REALLY rubs me the wrong way…

1 of my favourite things about my culture is old folk music and poetry……..and you will rarely catch me post or mention anything mentioning that even though like 40% of my musical consumption is that…because THAT is how much I don’t want to be a gateway to that type of my background to anyone….lately(especially with this new blog) I’ve been getting abit more brave and posting somali related stuff but generally I’m not the type that likes to share these things and if you remember me from my old blog, you know I rarely posted anything….most people didn’t even know my ethnicity beyond that I am black and that was a very deliberate move…………..you might think its weird and not a big deal…but my culture is all very hallowed to me….to me its the surviving traces of home

so if you are asking me how I feel about that and what I would do the rare situation of me ending up with someone non black? I don’t think I would let it slide and I don’t think I could be with someone who would want to either and it really isn’t about making a statements, its just not something I am comfortable with at all….you can eat the food if you want to though, I’m down with that lol

but thats just my personal opinion

but going back to the original point, its not cultural appropriation its cultural exchange

we always say it’s our daughters our wives our sisters who are getting raped, we never say that it’s our sons our fathers our brothers who are doing the raping.

We also neglect to say how female rapists get off easy, with media saying they had affairs with little boys, not…

Says the porn blog smh

Mate
Rape and porn are different things
If you can’t see that they’re different than you’ve got issues

Arent you the one on your blog saying that youd rape them? Under a caption under two women?

Yes
However that was a joke
You know
Humor
Dark, twisted humor, but humor nonetheless
Unlike you saying how white people aren’t welcome
For fucks sake that’s segregation and racism under the guise of helping women
It’s disgusting

My wonderful blog on the other hand is for black men/women and poc men/women. And when I do have followers who come to my blog I do give out links to other blogs who work with all survivors. Ohhhhh that’s so racist of me to have a safe place and still give out links to help. Ohhhh im such a horrible person look at everyones feelings im hurting by telling them that my blog talks about race, racism, rape and history of black people. Let me go cry in the corner and think about what ive done

You helping rape victims isn’t bad
But if you go out of your way to say whites ain’t welcome here
That’s no different than whites saying blacks can’t eat here
Blacks use that bathroom

See what I mean?
Remember back in the days of segregation?
Your neosegregationist ideas are the poison of society, and the idea that you can justify that by saying “they did it first” is no better than a kindergartner

Me running a support blogs DOES NOT hold the same power as you telling me I cant use a public restrooms or restaurant. There are millions of blogs on here and the internet that help survivors. There are groups out there that helps everyone but does not have resources for every survivor. This blog isnt because I haye white people. Thags stupid and that would be ivyof me. I made this because ww need a safe place because when black/poc survivors speak up on these groups other survivors tell us its not about race, that it doesnt matter what color you are were all survivors. If youre supposed to be in a group for raoe survivors and you constantly have people ganging up on you who went through the same thing you did, youre not going to want to open up and talk. And alot of these therapists do the same thing

I know that
But it’s the exclusionary racist mindset that enables racism like that to occur!

So if im understanding you correctly, if I got rid of my blog or if it didn’t exist then what happens now?

She doesn’t have to explain anything to you about why her blog is focused on a specific ethnic group. Slave descendant black women in the U.S.have a right to our own spaces. Our history with rape has a specific historical context. The oppressed are not required to share our spaces with our oppressors. For black people that means non-black people need to respect our boundaries and back off.
