***dark-skinned people round the world laugh till tears roll down their cheeks***
highkey the most clueless white feminist article title/header i’ve seen in a while.

…this…cannot…be…serious. Sun/tanning culture JUST happened for white folks in the last century. Like… there has ALWAYS been an embrace of pale skin - “alabaster beauty”, “porcelain skin”, “skin pure as driven snow”. Umm…y’all decided “tanning” was something necessary for beauty because it wasn’t enough to make dark-skinned folks feel ugly for it, you had to take that and make it better ‘cause if it ain’t white it ain’t right, right? But now you wanna play victim? Hell nawl.

OK. I KNOW YOU ARE ALL WORRIED ABOUT FERGUSON BUT CAN YOU FOR A SECOND LOOK AT THIS VICTOR WHITE CASE?

NOTHING ADDS UP.

APPARENTLY AFTER BEING SEARCHED TWICE (while handcuffed) HE PRODUCED A GUN AT THE POLICE STATION AND SHOT HIMSELF. HIS DEATH HAS BEEN RULED A SUICIDE.

YOU NEED TO SPREAD THIS TUMBLR. BECAUSE THIS IS BULLSHIT AND THE COPS ARE COVERING IT UP.

boosting this again. all this shit needs scrutiny. thats the only way we will get the reform we are literally dying to get.

ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.

No white girls?

no

Why? You do t think white girls should be told they’re beautiful?

they get told they’re beautiful every single day in every single piece of media we consume. I think they’ll be aight not being included in this.

Wow ok so everyone is beautiful except skinny girls or white girls. So if that’s ok, I think that only white guys are awesome. See discrimination is equalization if you make it that way:) 

^ LMAAAAO. Are you kidding me? You’re missing the entire point.

When was the last time you’ve been told “you’re pretty for a skinny girl” or “you’re pretty for a white girl”, huh?

I (and tons of other WoC) get told “you’re pretty for a black/hispanic/asian girl!” or “you’re pretty for a big girl!”. It’s bullshit. It’s fucking bullshit.

Are you really threatened by the fact that WoC are recognizing and celebrating their beauty?
