“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”
وفي الغد وحينما يُكرمُني الله بطفلٍ منك
وأكون الأمُ في ميلاده ..
سأشعلُ لهُ الشُموع ..
وأُقدم لهُ الهدايا ..
ليكُون بأجمع الصِفات .. كَ أبيه تماماً ،
مُحباً ، كريماً ،

Dont forget were you came from ,
Think of this the next time your with your friends and one of them decides to use the word nigga :D
interesting. they call the baby a “picaninny”. In Antigua, and perhaps other caribbean islands, children are referred to as “picnee” or “picanayga” in the local dialect.
What I’m about to say may offend and upset some so if you are sensitive to people who share their uncensored opinions, please continue scrolling.
I’m tired of black people constantly bringing up slavery and hanging it over other black people’s heads as a means to try and convince them to change their behavior. While I don’t deny the severity and utterly inhumane way our people were treated back in this time, I’m not going to let it define me as person TODAY in 2011 and I’m not going to dwell on it for the rest of my life. Slavery is a horrible scar on the face of our nation yes, but if we never move forward from it, how can we ever expect it to heal? I’m not saying I want to erase it, I’m saying I want people to stop using it as an excuse to make other races feel bad for them or as a way to try and uplift their peers. You should want to be better because of something inside yourself, not because of something your ancestors went through.
As a people we claim we want equality and to be looked at as the same as any white man yet we are continuously separating ourselves and retarding our mindsets to a period in which none of us, our parents or grandparents lived in. Groups like the NAACP and laws like affirmative action only make other races feel like we don’t want to integrate ourselves and be treated the same. No, you don’t deserve money from the government because your skin is dark and you descend from slaves. No, you don’t deserve to be given special privileges and be given an easier time because society “was built by and caters more to the white man” and it’s “hard” for you to make it. No, you getting straight A’s in high school doesn’t mean you deserve an award just because your skin is darker than little Bobby’s down the street. And NO, you’re not more beautiful or more valuable as a light skinned black person just because somewhere along the line, your blood found a little cream.
You don’t see Jewish people constantly bringing up the Holocaust to other Jews who aren’t orthodox and therefore aren’t as strict in their practice. They don’t let that tragedy hold them back. It is a vital part of their history YES but they don’t use it as a crutch. We need to stop acting like this is 1950 and everyone is against us. You want them to stop discriminating? Stop acknowledging your race as such a dominant factor and stop acting like that’s all you are. I know what some of yall are thinking, “if we don’t acknowledge our race, we’ll lose ourselves!” No. What you are confusing race with is culture. Our cuture as black people will never die. If we all went blind tomorrow, we’d still sing the same music, we’d still dance the same way and we’d still eat the same food. People of all different races sing our songs and eat our food and watch our movies and read our books and they see nothing wrong with that. It’s their CULTURE, not their race.
I don’t understand why people are so afraid to let go of the past. Yall weren’t even NEARLY alive when this was going on, so how could you possibly be using it to define and rule your life? You can’t. All you can do is remember where you came from in actuality, which is people who rebuilt and empowered themselves after having been kept down for over 300 years. But that’s not our struggle. That’s not our battle. We’re here, we don’t have to fight. Right now, our battle is with ourselves. We need to show the world that we are just as good as they are, not use excuses and separate each other.
We all as Americans and all other nationalities of the world need to become color blind to each other if we ever want to move forward.
are you forreal
you cannot exist in real life, making a post like that on a fucking image like this
i refuse to believe you exist
zorawitch: I literally cannot believe the hot fecal matter that just came out of this young woman’s mouth. And she’s 19 years old. Chile, you have no excuse to be that disingenuously ignorant about race politics. Get out.
@zorawitch—She gon’ get her Nigger Moment, and it’s gonna HURT.
and also a hearty fuck you.
Oh okay, you’re POC?
again with this “get over it Nigga” shit? diaf
HOLY CRAP O.O My mom and her family always use the word “piciny” (or picnee?) to reference children. I can’t believe this is where it was derived from.
But how do you/we/everyone expect to advance and stop the racism? I too am not saying
