Calling out racism IS NOT AN ATTACK. Calling out colorism IS NOT AN ATTACK. Calling out sexism and rape culture IS NOT AN ATTACK. Calling out homophobia,biphobia, acephobia, and or transphobia IS NOT AN ATTACK. Calling out ableism is NOT AN ATTACK.

Calling out problematic behavior in all its forms that contribute to the ongoing oppression of a group of people IS NOT AN ATTACK

You don't get a gold star or a cookie for acknowledging your racism. You don't get rewarded for realizing what people have been telling you for YEARS. Shane Dawson does not deserve nor is he owed acknowledgement for his apology. His fans need to realize making amends for this isn't as simple as making a video just saying he's sorry. His supposed self-awareness of his culpability needs action. Such as even stopping support his new racist "Not Cool" movie & ending his other problematic behaviors.

When are you guys going to stop pretending Viola Davis is pretty? She's not. It's not even about her color she's just not pretty.

When are yall gonna stop pretending this isn’t about her skin color? I wish I could paste her features onto a white woman or even a black woman with lighter skin, then you wouldn’t be saying this. If she were white, you would call her “striking” or some other bullshit. If she were a light skinned black woman, you would probably still be bitter about a lead black woman but you at least wouldn’t pick apart her appearance. Maybe if her skin was lighter, you would actually acknowledge her accomplishments, too. Her talent, maybe? She just slayed America in 60 minutes while looking incredible and this is the only bitter response you could come up with? Your saltiness is unnerving, honey, do better.  Talk to me when you get nominated for an Oscar. 

image               And don’t insult her with the word “pretty”. She’s fucking stunning. Do so, so much better.

Seen it myself close and personal. She’s beautiful!

Why y’all give these fuck ass cowards any attention.

"The Police say the fire was accidental."

Oh. Riiiiight. The Police. The Ferguson Police. The Police who stepped on and let their dogs urinate on the Mike Brown Memorial. The Ferguson Police who covered up Mike Brown’s shooting, the Police who started martial law and shot rubber and wood bullets into crowds of peaceful protestors. The Ferguson Police. That Police??? I DUNNOOOOOO.
