Stacey Dash on Black Democrats: They have a plantation mentality.
"They have a plantation mentality. As long as they give you this much money, you’ll stay right there. You don’t need to know too much because if you do, you might start thinking for yourself."
I keep tellin y’all white dick is the devil and it will have you acting crazy and coonin’ for Fox News bobbleheads. Stacey wasn’t sayin all this when she was with Christopher Williams back in the day so I guess that little white child turned her out completely.

"European American" and "African American" are not two sides of the same coin.
LMAOOO IM SORRY
Nah though, she right. You don’t call white folks, “European American”.
I haven’t really had much to say about Raven’s little “we are the world” moment on Oprah because it’s not that important to me, but I’m really tired of seeing this passed around on tumblr as if we don’t all live in the real world where race is an actual thing that matters and how we refer to ourselves is some big controversy.

Look at this photo.
That moment when a low-quality casual restaurant chain starts using slang you’ve never heard of.
Am I old now? Am I still Black? I don’t remember “fleek” being discussed at the last BBQ. Was this a late entry on the program that I missed because I was having my Itis Nap? What does fleek even mean? Who started it? What’s it derived from?
Actually, I really think Black people are just throwing random words out there now to see how long it takes before white folks be like “oooo that is so cool, let’s wear this completely the fuck out real quick.”

Petition to stop Black memes.
Black people. Stop it. Find a new mode of expression because I am tired of all y’alls grainy Instagram memes all over social media. I have so many grievances.
- Kermit cannot physically drink any more tea.
- You don’t need memes to tell the world how much you love your kids. Get off the internet and play Candyland with them or something.
- I just saw the episode of Love & Hip Hop too. I don’t need 12 memes to summarize the whole show five minutes later. Ditto for Scandal and Real Housewives of Atlanta.
- Upgrade your technology. There is no reason for a meme to be created on Monday and be grainy and unreadable on Wednesday. Are you reposting these pictures with a potato? Please do better.
- Olivia Huxtable did not live through divorced parents, get dragged all over Africa, and finally shipped off to Singapore so y’all could layer basic bitch tenets all over her pre-kindergarten face.
^^^ What does that even mean???? Can someone please explain? Or ask a cousin who has her nails shaped into talons and a fresh weave every Tuesday, because I feel like she knows.
Please stop though, forreal. Madame CJ Walker did not spend her whole life becoming a millioniare by burning off peoples’ edges just so y’all could be THIS terrible at Internetting.

Watch this video.
Lowe Sisters “New Hit Song”
Today in I love Black people so much: this harmony. THIS HARMONY. Whoever is yelling shut-up in the background needs to go find Jesus because this is hot fire and I’m having church right now.
"Should I wear my granny pannies….or should I wear a thong?"
Yes, Gawd. Hallelujah.
(Also, whenever I throw minor shade at everybody being so bowled over by Adele these past few years by saying “I can go to any church in the South and randomly point to a Black woman who sounds just like that”…………..this is what I’m talking about. We been had that sound since way back when white folks were hands-clasped singing boring songs from hymnals off beat. Like, just casually amazing and hella soulful for centuries without even trying, but y’all crying about a white lady singing in funeral attire with a beehive.)

Look at this photo.
Most of my future children tag is cute brown children being fabulous and clearly belonging to me in spirit, but I’m making an exception for this tweet because if I don’t raise my kids to give that exact same response, then I have failed as a parent.
Who is this woman and can I send her a thank-you gift basket and a Black Parenting Award? This is why it is imperative that we teach our children real history outside of textbooks constructed by, written for, and approved by white men whose re-telling of history conveniently glosses over atrocities and minimizes suffering.
"bold new idea"
I want to go to that school and set fire to every history book in the building.

Oscar-nominated Black actresses still can’t find work.
But Kristen Stewart, by her own admission, can snap her fingers and get a role.
I’ve seen a collection of photos from shady-heaux floating around tumblr leading off with Viola Davis.
It needed a video. It needed this scene from Doubt where Viola Davis gives the performance of the century so far and makes Meryl Streep look like an amateur. I can’t watch this scene without tearing up every single time because Viola takes acting to a place where Kristen Stewart can only pray to catch a corner of one day.
The fact that any woman can do THAT and still have to beg for scenes in a movie “opposite so-and-so” after two Oscar nominations is all you need to know about what it’s like to be Black in Hollywood.
