"Dreadlocks"

nextlifeout:

These photos floating around of people’s matted, feral, dirty ass hair being passed off as “dreadlocks” make me want to vomit. I legitimately feel sick looking at them. What an enormous insult to Black people’s beautiful crowns.

Are you serious? Respect the girls wishes and don't follow her blog or message her that blog is strictly for young BLACK girls/women who dealt with rape or abuse y'all white girls/women would never understand

well all of you black woman who get so easily offended by what white woman do and say are quick to discriminate against what we do and say i didnt follow her or message her i simply stated my opinion on a post i reblogged and she decided to reply so im not sure where youre from but i live in america so i have freedom of speech and honestly black woman dont understand white woman either so this goes both way and im saying nobody should do what she did if she wanted a safe place that was only for a certain community she should make her own personal website not make a blog on a very public website like honestly she didnt think that one through. seriously it is so insulting because you think you understand white girls and we dont understand yall and we know we dont understand yall and we dont try but you black people think you are so entitled and that everything that happens is so much worse because you are black you shouldnt use race as an excuse seriously grow up. rape is rape. female is female. culture is separate but that doesnt mean you need to go out of your way to make people feel excluded like honestly. 

Society is completely centered around whiteness, Black people have no choice but to adapt and be mindful of that, so no it doesn’t go “both ways.” Black people know what it’s like to live in a society that isn’t tailored to us. You lack perspective in that regard, that’s absolute.

I honestly can’t believe that you’re attacking a Black woman who is a survivor of sexual assault and essentially saying “don’t make it here.” Do you even know what site you’re on? Tumblr’s userbase is huge, it’s in the millions, it’s the perfect place to create a safe space for Black victims who utilize this site.

You’re insulted because a white centered society doesn’t care about Black rape victims so a person, who is a survivor attempts to create a space, to rectify that and you’re offended? You really need to sit down and evaluate yourself and realize that you have a very narrow and limited viewpoint that prevents you from seeing things.

Again, I’ll say this. Black women know what it’s like you live in a society tailored for white people. You don’t. You can’t just switch things around like signs in a math equations to balance things out. You should listen to what people responding are telling you. Grow up. Be mature and realize you might not know everything.

when you call out white people

when you call out white people

You can be surrounded by family and friends still suffer through your mental illnesses. You can be loved and still feel overwhelming hate for yourself. This is not cured or fixed over night upon graduation, marriage, having your first child or any single positive life event that people like to sum and romanticize as the definitive turning point for every person enduring their own mental health struggles.

It’s really important that people understand this and stop looking at mental illnesses as phases for people who are predisposed to chemical imbalances in their brains and bodies, people who have suffered through severely traumatic emotional events in past or are enduring them now in the present, and people who if even after said trauma is physically over and done with, they are still suffering from the memories of it and anxieties of the future regarding it and life in general.

nothing has changed.png

Sharper eyebrows, fuller cheeks and lips, softer jaw line, longer neck, thinner shoulders, new mouth shape, kick ass costume design. “Nothing has changed” go fuck yourself.

oMG slightest changes but still white as unflavored oatmeal. so still gross and ugly. go fuck yourself

So your problem is that she’s white? You know that’s racist, right?
rac·ism

ˈrāˌsizəm/

noun





the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.





prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.










The problem -in tandem with her shitty model copy paste design (fight me)- is that her character was originally Japanese and was whitewashed. That is racist. 
It’s bad.
It is not good.
Regardless of whether or not you thing her model is different from Rapunzel’s because her eyebrows are sharper and her chin is .02 degrees softer, her design is still erasing.
