Catching Elephant is an awesome theme by Andy Taylor, heavily edited by me.

 

My fellow white people, please stop saying ‘bae’

It is AAVE. You did not grow up speaking AAVE. You are putting into your vocab to sound cool. Black people get discriminated against for using AAVE. Stop it.

You can never label yourself as “one of the good ones” you gotta be constantly calling yourself out and checking yourself and if you can call out others. We all have internalized shit we gotta combat every second. Just gotta deal with that. Re: racism, misogyny, transmisogny, transphobia, etc. We all have something to work on!

Are non-black people not able to see the difference??? Black people don’t simply stop washing and grooming our hair to achieve locs. Locs (and EVERY OTHER STYLE WE WEAR including, but not limited to, braids, twists, afros, and even wigs/weaves) are the complete damn opposite of what white folk tried to tell us for hundreds of years was true. We are not, and have never been, a dirty or unkempt people. We have always taken pride in our appearance and our style has always been FAR more intricate than chunks of matted yuck! White people with dreads is top tier white privilege. 😖
I don’t wanna die before white people just let us be great. I want that to happen sometime in my earthly life. I want our hair and skin and lips and hips to be acceptable and not just sexualized. I want movies about Egypt to cast black folk as the slaves/servants AND the Pharaohs. I want black kids to go to the corner store for skittles and make it home in one piece, and if they DON’T I want whatever weapon formed against them to be found guilty.
I just…I’m so frustrated.
