Notice how fast black people rally against white men, but rally around white women

As you all know, I've given examples about how many black men and women are defending Rachel Dolezal. No one dug up the facts about her and how she used the identity of a biracial black woman to gain entitlement within the African American community. She fetishsized black culture because she's married to a black man. And a little tea birdie sent this nice little gem about her...

 Why am I not surprised that she's possibly a black man fetishsizing, racist loser? She sued Howard for discriminating against white people, and I believe she used the identity of a biracial black woman because she knows she'll most likely be accepted and empathized with since our community puts those types on a pedestal. She's a disgusting human being and I was disgusted but not surprised because as long as black men are the one's being satisfied white women like her get a pass.

Now currently. First of all, my condolences to the people lost in that shooting. Society has not changed. Black people still face an enormous amount of racism and violence in this country and it's 2015. This is absolutely disgusting to watch unfold. I fear for my life as well as the lives of my family and other black women.

Now back on topic. I'm sure you've all heard about the shooting in Charleston. A white gunman opened fire on a black church where 6 black women were murdered and 3 black men. Total of 9 people. I found it ironic how swiftly black people rallied around punishing this white man, just a few seconds after finding out he was white.

Not once have I heard black people voice their anger about the death and murder of Arnesha a 16 year old black girl killed by two black gang members in the most brutal way. We will not hold black men accountable for the purposely ignorant violence against black women in our community that most black men commit. We don't want to make them look bad in the midst of things like this because then we'll look like a contradiction as a race.

So while we rally our troops to take down the white mane, we ignore the violence and erasure of our black women, the same black women we call on when we want to take shots at da white mane or protect black manhood. Black women are literally walking breathing heavy duty machinery to the black community and we don't even give a damn and fully embrace these roles like idiots.

The black community is pro-black man and pro-white woman and black women seem to not have a problem with that. This so sad to see how pitiful black women are.

The erasure of black women continues!!!

 



I bet this has given white women all types of ideas. As if the Kardashian sisters, and Iggy Azealea weren't enough. The phrase "We can copy you, but you can't copy us" lives no more. Now white girls have a new inspiration to try and mimic black women. All thanks to Rachel Doleza!

Chile I done seen it all! White Lady Rachel Dolezal Passes as Black and Runs the Spokane NAACP

 davis2

Yep Mrs. Rachel Dolezal passed as a Black woman. Somebody call Skip Gates ASAP! She has all the credentials. She went to Howard, teaches Black Studies, married a Black man and had a Black son. According to the Washington Times:
Rachel Dolezal is president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP, chair of the city’s Office of Police Ombudsman Commission, and an adjunct professor at Eastern Washington University.
The Spokesman-Review reported Thursday that questions have arisen about her background and her numerous complaints to police of harassment. The story was first reported by the Coeur d’Alene Press.
Dolezal’s mother, Ruthanne, says the family’s ancestry is Czech, Swedish and German, with a touch of Native American heritage.”
Read more here. Wow. So her parents had enough and outed her!
Here is the video where she’s confronted by a KXLY4 reporter at the 8:16 mark.
Check out her shocked face!
Heck, if I were nonBlack I’d want to be Black too. We have culture, food, history, and we are beautiful, brilliant and our ancestors gave birth to humanity. Who wouldn’t? I see how other groups augment their lips and butts and tan their bodies to look like me, but gawd dang. This right here is a whole another level. In all my years at a stunning and perpetual 28 years old, I have never seen anything like this in my life. This confirms folks want to be like us.
That moment when the world hands you your White privilege card back
That moment when life hands you your White privilege card back
My thing is; we can usually tell who is Black. That’s how we know who is passing. This is a serious question, but I want to know how the heck did our Negro Detection System fail? We need to call Quality Assurance because it is broken. My Negro senses started tingling and saying “this ain’t right” the moment I saw her picture. I have light folks in my family, hey daddy and family, but we can tell. So how did everyone else miss it? Y’all know she probably has more bottles of tanning lotion than every natural woman product junkie has jars of Eco styling Gel! She probably baptizes herself in it religiously. Again, I would too. The melanin is beautiful.
This wasn’t the first time this has happened. Clarence Strange, a White man who was a famous geologist during the Gilded Age, passed as Black to be with his Black wife. Check out the book Passing Strange. I read it and liked it. You will like it too. (Affiliate link. Help me make some money).

That’s Dolelaz with Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby
Personally, I think folks wanted to ignore it. All of them! We all know how the NAACP and other Black organizations like their leaders light, bright and darn near White or in this recent case in Spokane really White. And don’t be a light Black woman. That is an automatic ticket to leadership. Just kidding (not really). Here is a little NAACP history. Even though the NAACP always put forward Black faces, the first Black NAACP president wasn’t chosen until 1975. You heard me. Nineteen freaking seventy-five! So that may explain it.
Thinking out loud: Are my eyes not 20/15 (I know I can’t see) or does it look like Mrs. Dolezel stole Ms. Angela Davis’ look with a bad eBay wig?

Before y’all Kim Kardashian claiming they are Black caping, hotep and y’all love dark skin only on Black men folks come here and tell me to lay off Mrs. Dolelaz because she was “down for the cause” I want to let you know she will not suffer. How do I know? Negrodamus predicts the NAACP and other Black organizations will start side eyeing every light-skinned leader their organization. Just kidding! In a few weeks I predict she will take off her Black face. Eventually, she will get a movie deal. It will probably be on LifeTime because they live for this kind of thing. She will have a book a book deal and go on a lucrative speaking tour detailing her life as a strong strugglin Black woman. It will be all for the White gaze, of course, while actual Black women like me are ignored.
dolezal on tyrese
But you have to ask yourself what kind of woman goes this far? I mean check out her Twitter handle! How did she get her family and friends to participate in this masquerade and how many people purposely ignored it? Those are questions we probably will never get answered. All I can say is stay Black or in Rachel’s case keep trying. The only limit you have is the one you have placed on yourself. Think and be limitless.

Unpopular opinion: Why I will never rally around black men

This may cause a lot of people to come on here and bash me, but I don't care. I can't tell you the amount of times I scroll across things like this daily, on any part of the internet, but specifically social media. As soon as I log on some black man (and even other black women) are posting things mocking dark skin black women, bashing dark skin black women, or treating black women like subhumans.

It's so frustrating because when you post comments like these to other black women, they bring out the herd and come for your throat like "Don't be talking about my black kangz", yet these same black women can "One and done" a black woman for the most pettiest of things. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of this shit either being ignored, supported or not made a public issue.

 This whole movement is not stopping things like this from existing. And please with all due respect, don’t mention to me“Not all” in the comments because I don’t care to be honest with you. It’s far too many I can tell you that. I made sure to circle the date so you all can see that this stuff is recent.





And peep the brotha with the blacklivesmatter screename. These are the men of your black power movement, these are the men you bust your ass to defend in the streets, even putting your own life in danger. What color are the women who started the blacklivesmatter movement? I told you all black men only care about themselves. And most of these men bashing dark skin black women are dark skin too, but you all drool over them and put them on a pedestal. I'd be arrogant too, if I had it like them.

What was even more pathetic where the black women laughing and finding it funny.







The Meechie guy was horrible. Within the comments I saw a few brown/dark women laughing, and some light skin women cosign. I just shook my head, where’s the solidarity. Peep Jr Patchy Strokes she’s really enjoying it.

BLACK MEN DO NOT CARE FOR BLACK WOMEN. BLACK PEOPLE DON'T CARE FOR BLACK WOMEN. Simple as that. You're sitting up here doing all of this shit for nothing, for a group of people who clearly don't give a damn about you. Get it together black women, wake up!!!

Harriet Tubman wins Unofficial vote to be on $20 dollar bill!!!

This is huge, not only because she's black, not because she's a woman, but because she's a black woman. A black woman will be the face on our money. Considering how black women are often left out of black history lectures within and outside of our community, THIS IS A BIG DEAL! Harriet would be proud if she could see this history being talked about. I hope this happens, I will be praying in my sleep for it to happen.

Harriet Tubman Wins Unofficial Vote to Be on $20 Bill

 

The people have spoken — at least, the people who cast ballots in an unofficial "Women on 20s" campaign — and more than 100,000 voters want to see Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill instead of Andrew Jackson.
Tubman, the abolitionist who helped free slaves on the Underground Railroad, on Tuesday was declared the winner of an online poll, part of a petition aimed at convincing the Treasury Department to put a new face on the $20 — and specifically a female one.
All U.S. paper money currently features the portraits of men.
Tubman narrowly edged out former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt in the final round of voting, with civil rights icon Rosa Parks rounding out third place.
The announcement drew cheers at one Laguna Beach, California, elementary school. "There are no words," said fifth-grader London. "I was just too excited that I couldn't breathe - I almost started crying," she added.
A classmate added: "When you really think about it, there's a lot of famous women for a lot of different things, like the four candidates we had. And Tina Fey."
The campaign, launched earlier this year, has gone viral online, and more than 600,000 people selected candidates during two rounds of voting, with the visitors from all 50 states checking out the website.
The "Women on 20s" movement hopes to put pressure on President Obama to change U.S. currency, though it's ultimately up to the Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to make the call.
A spokesperson for the Treasury told NBC News Tuesday, "There are a number of interesting currency ideas, but we do not have any comment on the specific campaign."
The founders of the campaign hope to put a woman's portrait on the $20 by 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining voting rights in the United States.

Do We Really Mean it When We Say #BlackLivesMatter?


In the past year, #BlackLivesMatter has evolved into more than just a social media hashtag. It has grown into a mantra that represents the impacts of a failure to come to terms and acknowledge a horrid past built upon racism, slavery, genocide, colonization, and forced assimilation. What was once just a hashtag has undergone a massive metamorphosis into a universal symbol and calling card that directly references a global pattern of  structural and cultural white privilege. That privilege allows a disproportionate amount of police brutality and political corruption towards minorities to go unpunished. Yet, there’s a trend concerning who gets coverage from #BlackLivesMatter.  It almost exclusively focuses on cis-hetero Black men, with little to no mention of Black women and Black LGBT communities, raising the question: when we say “lives” do we, as a community, really mean it? Or does the impact of sexism and gender roles strictly equate “lives” with straight black men?
Historically, the assumed victim of police brutality is a black man, which centers attempts at bridging racial gaps on that specific demographic, and  alienates Black women and Black LGBT.  Operation Ghetto Storm, a comprehensive list of extrajudicial killings of Black Americans in the 2012-2013 year, proves that the death and assaults of black women are not exceptional or a rarity–but yet it is rarely talked about on the same scale as the murders of black men.
In my research of articles referencing Operation Ghetto Storm only one, mentioned the death of a black woman at the hands of police. So while there is some information on police brutality and the affects it has on black women, it is not as comprehensive as the information on black men. On top of that, the information that is available is not frequently used, further endorsing the idea that state sanctioned violence strictly affects black men, ultimately putting black women in an even more oppressed and underrepresented position.
Beyond the death of black women, the roles they have in organizing black communities is glossed over. ‘Black Lives Matter’ itself began with two women. Living in the D.C. area, there is a hotbed of political conversations and political protests and in my experience, most of the protests aimed at putting a focus on black issues have been led by black women.  In a recent show of solidarity, on March 27, 2015 a group of women led a march to the gates of Mitch McConnell’s, the Senate Majority Leader, office demanding a reason why, Loretta Lynch, was at the time waiting for over four months to be sworn in before finally being sworn in on April 23, 2015.
However, we continually snub the trials faced by Black women due to intersectionalism– being not only black, but a woman in a dominant patriarchal culture that endorses strict dual gender cultural ideals that limit the role of a woman. And by disregarding the issue this way, the systematic degradation of black women and their worth,  makes it socially acceptable to lessen  our humanity.
The recent anger on social media over Rekia Boyd’s killer being dismissed of all charges has signaled a possible change in this narrow focus. However, the lack of massive protests following the social media outcry proves that it doesn’t change the fact that people are willing to express more anger and compassion over the injustices of men who are killed by law enforcement. Black women largely continue to receive no attention, no protests, no global outcry; our memories obscured and our livelihoods forgotten.
In the same vein, the coverage on LGBT lives is close to none. In America, 1 in every 8 transexual PoC will be murdered. That is a massive and disturbing number, combined with not only racial bias, but a homophobic culture that dehumanizes people of the LGBT communities. Whatever coverage trans PoC receive is overshadowed by insults and slurs that devalue the humanity of individuals who lived their truth. The names of Islan Nettles, who was beat to death right outside of a police station, Izzy Fowler and Yaz’min Shanc, amongst many others,  deserve as much attention as any other Black American, and are virtually unknown.
I believe social media is  one of the strongest tools against rampant injustice. It is how the world heard about Ferguson and multitude of others.  It’s why people in Palestine, China, and India stand with American minorities and how we too stand with the world in their trials. It is how we are able to see the continuing manifestation of what W.E.B DuBois once called the, “Color Line,” into a 21st century problem. In the end however, ignoring the influence of male privilege, patriarchal bias, and cultural ideals on gender roles has on #BlackLivesMatter is a failure to truly ensure that all Black lives are really valued equally. Picking and choosing whose life matters excludes others and is a dangerous hypocrisy that we as a minority group should never allow and cannot afford.
