Misty ALWAYS gets me to stan out.

Not only is she gorgeous and talented, but she has BODY. Boobs. Thighs. Calves. Hips. She’s shapely. And STILL serving the work.

Black realness. Make that Under Armour coin, Ms. Copeland!

She fucking it up in her over priced underwear!

Angela Bassett’s career is unparalleled…

Queen. Goddess. Extreme Enunciator. The Ageless Acting Phenom, Angela Bassett.

I really did need an Angela Bassett appreciation post in my life because her career has spanned almost three decades of pure amazingnes and she does not get nearly enough praise.

not perfect, not easy. 
but looking at this photo, months later, reminded me why and how I fell in love with this man. this relationship is not all sunshine and roses— but our hearts employ a good love.

Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

All of this. ALL OF THIS. READ THIS ^^^^^^

White people didn’t invent straight hair either. There are Black people with straight hair. That’s not a “White style”.

Because ALL of this needs to be on everyone’s page.
