Yvette Nicole Brown Responds to the NY Times’s portrayal of Shonda Rhimes as an “Angry Black Woman”

Alessandra Stanley, the writer of that article. Surprised? Nope.

Can we fuckingg stop white women from talking about black women in their shitty articles. I swear the pathological white-centredness of feminists it getting boring as fuck. That constant need to simplify the complex, artistic and sophisticated minds of black women to a singular racist trope is demeaning. White sociopathy is what it is, white women have to be the only ones who are successful, they are so threatened by us that they feel the need to put us down and in getting ducking sick of it. They’re so used to being celebrated for mediocrity that when women like Viola Davis and Shonda Rhimes are changing the game and people are realising that whiteness celebrates mediocrity they must bring us down. Ugh I’m so annoyed.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

This truly upsets me everytime I see it. The man was dressed up, you can NOT tell me that race wasn’t a factor in this because I don’t see no white person losing their life when they are dressed up for shit like anime conventions. When will this shit end?

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

1. PSA: Please don’t try the BS “I have a Black friend” excuse on me again

2. Related: Why so many White people fail to understand Ferguson

3. Personal: Getting real tired of all the calm, analytic “what about this” discussions I hear every single time UNARMED Black people are murdered by the police

white people make up the majority of the population, so therefore it would be logical for whites to have more white friends, like the numbers make sense

also some areas are hugely white and others are more diverse. its says more about demographics than racism

Yeah honestly that’s not a fair assumption, I grew up in an area with about 5 nonwhite people per class so exactly how was I supposed to make sure I had an “acceptable” amount of black friends? I don’t agree you should use any excuse to be racist, but the standards seem a bit skewed.

I would rather have white people be friends with me because they like me as a person, instead of wanting to ease their white guilt

no one consciously looks at race when making friends, unless you’re a racist and that’s a minority of people

Places my friends come from: lacrosse team, videogames, classes, church, band
Number of black people ive met in those populations: im guessing 3.
I dont give a fuck what color your skin is, but im not going to go out of my way to be friends with someone just to appease another tumblr sjw.

Dear followers, please allow me to translate most of the predominately White or #newBlackanti-sjw" bloggers (weird how that works out, huh?) out there like: a-little-fall-of-rain canofsexy and their ilk for you:

1. “I have absolutely NO basic reading comprehension because I didn’t understand (or intentionally ignored) the completely asynchronous ***proportions*** mentioned and highlighted that was the point of the article”

2. “Yeah I’m a racist, and I’m 100% comfortable in my racism”

Borrowing from a recent post by sonofbaldwin, aptly titled:

The Crier Deniers

Some white people love to come into a conversation critiquing racism just to say that they don’t think it’s racism.


Sometimes, they’re nice with it, like, “I honestly don’t think that was racism. I think it was just a little misunderstanding.”

Sometimes, they’re nasty with it, like, “STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD! EVERYTHING IS NOT ABOUT RACE!!!!”

But one thing is true: The denial is like a meth h
igh for them.

It’s like they feel that in order to live a stress-free life, preserve their innocence, extend their euphoria, and protect their self-image, they must take up the mission of denying racism wherever it has been detected. 

From the most subtle shades to the most blatant explosions, these folks get their whole lives from telling people of color that racism is just a figment of their imaginations. 

They only way they will admit that racism is the cause of something is if telepathy can be utilized to read the accused’s mind. 

Anything short of that and these folks will get down on their knees and cry, incredulous at the fact that you could even think that racism was involved.

Because as
 James Baldwin said, crying is much easier than changing.

(P.S. This also goes for some men folk in conversations about misogyny, some straight folks in conversations about queerantagonism, some non-disabled folks in conversations about ableism/disableism, and so on.)

EDIT: this also applies to #newBlack people thirsty for White approval
