Welcome to my blog

itsfunnybutitsnotajoke:

May I never tell my son to man up

May I never tell my daughter to act like a lady

May I never call their exceptional weird

May I never laugh at their eccentricities 

May I never try to correct the way they see the world

Instead

May I always encourage them

to change 

my vision

and may 

I learn from them

the way 

my mother

never

learned 

from

me.

Reblog every time

Something about this is making my ass itch.. like… naw, I can’t fuck with this picture at all.

lol omg girl why? is it because he’s on her shoulders?

That might be it.. Like I’m not going to act like this don’t look like some fuckshit. She is holding up him, the weight of the “world”, AND breast feeding her baby? This look like some “holding my man up” while I’m “a strong black woman” type of shit. They might of had good intentions but this picture has my ass itching and that usually means something ain’t right.

its a true story for a lot of black women, including myself though. and women in general often end up carrying the emotional burden of their mens-es for their mens-es because ‘men are to strong to feel’. so in that  way it is kinda like the weight of the world. even big strong men need a little uplifting sometimes with the tenderness that only a woman can give. (obviously het-relationships lol)

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored
