"So my problem is that I’m gonna see people who mocked me for wearing this attire are now wearing it cause its “hip”." I think the issue here is people making fun of people for the way they are dressing. You do that plenty. You need to learn to apologize.
So are you really that dense or are you playing games?
Either way, bye, get out.
for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever
girl pilots (◕‿◕✿)
girl pilots killing nazis ✧･ﾟ: *✧･ﾟ:* \(◕ヮ◕✿)/ *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧
But, remember, women never did anything in history.
….. Really? Did they really? They really captioned this picture with a slave reference?
People are slaved by the worth of money.
*sigh* Can we get just one day…?
So you’re really going to ignore the fact that Black people are the founders of Punk then? And you’re really going to call people of color upset over your overtly racist language “whiny bitches”? And you’re really going to act like one Black man putting on a t-shirt is a landmark in your “struggle?” And it hasn’t occurred to you once that people wear leather jackets because they like them and that Metalheads don’t have a copyright on leather spiked jackets. And you’re really going to expect people—especially Black people—to believe that by “ghetto swag hoodrats” you meant EVERYBODY who listens to pop music, when white people continuously call us that shit all the time.
Looking at my Kanye post I should’ve reworded it.
“ghetto swag hoodrat”
that’s where I was excessive.
What I should’ve said was, “Mainstream oriented pop loving assholes who mocked us for dressing like this, will start dressing like this.”
because ALL the people who mocked me (and others for dressing in the leather jackets and metal shirts), black and white and hispanic, will start dressing like us, because they’re mindless, un-original, uninspired vacuous pieces of shit. Trend minded fucksass’s
Dressing like you. Dressing like YOU. Dressing like you??? You realize that metalheads appropriated everything ABOUT metalhead culture FROM Black people, from Latinos? Y’all stole that shit from US, but one Black man wears a leather jacket with spikes and your whole world is crashing down at the idea that the people who created the style in the first place MIGHT put on a damn jacket? Are you serious? Go get a glass of water and calm your shit down. And learn what a real apology looks like while you’re at it, instead of that faux-pology bullshit trying to excuse your racist behavior. Own up to your god damn mistakes. You’re an adult, act like it.
It’s not a problem that he’s Black but you sure are mad that all the—and I quote— “ghetto swag hoodrats” might start wearing leather jackets. Oh, boo hoo, you fucking asshole. How dare you sit there and say ignorant ass shit like that and then say it’s not about race. You made it about race the second those words came off your damn fingertips. People are wearing leather jackets, boo hoo. You know who else wears them? Pretty much everybody following the summer 2013 fashion trends. You know who has ownership over spiked leather jackets? NOBODY. Get over yourself. Do some reevaluating of your damn spirit too. “Ghetto hoodrats”
Kanye West is wearing leather jackets with spikes in them, and wearing jeans with metal bands names on them…
can’t wait for every ghetto swag hoodrat to start dressing like metal heads.
Really can’t wait….All the kids who thought people like me were weird for wearing leather jackets or all black with metal band names mocked us.
I’ve been rocking the leather pants and metal band logo for as long as I can remember. Does this mean I’m a hipster and had “swag” before Kanye?
Its not the matter that he’s black. The issue is that he is a mainstream pop/hip-hop person so because of what he wears is “swag” to the mainstream sensation they’re all gonna wear these things which at one point which I was insulted for wearing all the time. So my problem is that I’m gonna see people who mocked me for wearing this attire are now wearing it cause its “hip”.
You’re really trying to make it sound like cultural appropriation, like you were oppressed for wearing a leather jacket and now everybody else can wear them without that treatment. You can’t be serious. You were mocked for wearing a jacket. I’m sorry. That sucks. But don’t act like it’s some huge god damn crime that now other people wear leather jackets without being made fun of. Punks are’t some fucking oppressed group. Just. Stop.“Ghetto swag hoodrats,” ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS.
you're a bigot :(
Because of the princess thing? Awwww. :(
Do you agree that white folks adopting babies/children of color is a bad idea?
For the most part, yeah.
But at the end of the day, it’s yet another white girl in a sea of endless movies about white girls while people of color get one protagonist per group, so I mean :| They look the damn same to everybody else. Just. Another. White girl. Yawn.
A lot of people are comparing Anna to Rapunzel…in a bad way.
Well, let’s take a look at these two princesses.
Even from far away, I can obviously tell that they look very different.
For one thing, Anna’s hair is a strawberry blond, and Rapunzel’s hair is more of a golden blond. I’ve heart people say that they would have rather had Anna with platinum blond hair, but I disagree. I think the darker blond shade they gave Anna is beautiful, and I think it’s far away enough from Rapunzel’s hair to work. (And she will be the first Disney princess to have strawberry blond hair!)
They’re face shape is different as well. Anna looks a bit fuller in the face, while Rapunzel has a stronger jaw.
And while it’s hard to tell, it looks like Anna’s eyebrows are going to match her hair, unlike Rapunzel’s brow eyebrows.
And lastly, look at their eyes. Completely different. Rapunzel’s eyes are youthful and wide, while Anna’s eyes actually resemble some of the 2D princesses eyes like Belle and Tiana.
As for Frozen having the same theme as Tangled, I disagree. Frozen looks much more epic, and much more…er…mature? Mature probably isn’t the right word to use in this situation, but Frozen looks quite different from Tangled.
So basically, the more a white person feels like they own that dark skinned body, the more comfortable they are with them.
An optical illusion can change the implicit biases of Caucasian people against people with darker skin, according to a study published in the August 2013 edition of Cognition.
The research, a collaboration between Royal Holloway University of London, the Central European University in Budapest and Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands, analyzed the implicit racial biases of 34 Caucasian participants, then subjected them to something called the Rubber Hand Illusion, where they watched a rubber hand being touched by a paintbrush as they felt their own hand being stimulated out of sight. The illusion creates the sense that the fake hand is part of the subject’s body, even when it’s of a completely different skin color.
The more the participants felt like the darker skinned fake hand was their own, the less racist they came off in a second implicit bias test.
In another test, participants underwent the same process, but some saw a white hand, while others saw a dark hand. The implicit bias test showed that the opinions of those who saw the white hand didn’t change, while again those who felt ownership of the darker hand felt less racial bias.
“Across two experiments, the more intense the participants’ illusion of ownership over the dark-skinned rubber hand, the more positive their implicit racial attitudes became,” the authors write.
“It comes down to a perceived similarity between white and dark skin,” lead author Lara Maister of Royal Holloway University of London said in a press statement. “The illusion creates an overlap, which in turn helps to reduce negative attitudes because participants see less difference between themselves and those with dark skin.”
The study suggests that racial biases aren’t necessarily cemented by adulthood, but that they can be altered. “Changes in body-representation may therefore constitute a core, previously unexplored, dimension that in turn changes social cognition processes,” the authors write. They suggest that future research into different social groups and stereotypes could expand on their work, since this research only explored the attitudes of white individuals.
I like the blog blackgirlsrpretty2. Fantastic A+ job on displying Black women and showing that Black is beautiful.
But it endlessly pisses me off that whenever people ask for curvy black women, she directs them to a different blog, Black and Curvy. Like, yay good, you have a blog dedicated to curvy and fat Black women, good, the need love.
But seriously why are you so against posting curvy/fat black women on blackwomenrpretty2. Are they not pretty enough to meet them standards or what? Like seriously once somebody asked and she was like “That’s what blackandcurvy” is for and I just. I just. UGH. Somebody else just asked the same thing and instead of answering, she just responded with a link to blackandcurvy and I just
but really though
Because if some curvy girl is asking you “Wh don’t you post curvy girls on here” and the answer you give is, “I have a separate blog for them”
gurl get it together please :| you can be black and curvy AND pretty, there ain’t no shame in mixing the two. Think about the message you send when you refuse to do so. Implying that they aren’t good enough for your blog. Implying they have no place on a blog called “blackgirlsrpretty2”
You can be black and pretty and curvy
you can be black and pretty and fat
work on that shit
I really hope she realizes that and takes the many suggestions she gets for curvy and fat inclusivity. Because the constant shut down and redirection is fucking insulting.
