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
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.
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
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
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
