I want to open up multiple black owned and black taught schools. Our knowledge of self isn’t taught, and our history is being rewritten. Teach the future where we came from, what we’ve been through, and how to be self sufficient as a people.

I want to start a black owned network marketing…

I want to open up a home for sexually and physically abused black women and girls. I want to help them recuperate and get back on their feet. I want them to be able to leave the home happy with money in their pockets. I honestly can’t wait to start, as I know our black women are often overlooked when it comes to abuse. I really want to make a difference.

I’m white and I hate my hair. But I will not be denied a job for my hair. I will not have random people wanting to touch my hair. I will not be asked if I have a weave. I will not be kicked out of school for my hair. I may hate my hair, but will not be persecuted because of if. White people do not need the natural hair movement.

Welp.

Twitter user @CruzanChoklate proves several points in just a few tweets

I love that she did this, and it’s so sad how much hate she received and it’s sad that so many Black men who dismiss street harassment as unimportant or ‘not that serious’ got so mad her for this. She was just using their logic.

She did that! Brilliant satire telling truths about 3 (?) issues at once.

Yes she has a big point. But I’ve seen with my own eyes a guy get stopped by cops (pants weren’t sagging, no long white tees. He was dressed decently). 2 cops stopped him, he was polite didn’t give them any back talk. And the cops started getting aggressive with him. He honestly didn’t do anything wrong to the cops. Sometimes black men are a target, whether they’re dressed like “hoodlums” or not.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Thank you.

For the rest of the post.

The person who posted that on Twitter is an idiot. The original poster on Tumblr is an idiot. The person who reblogged the OP is also an idiot. Belittling an everyday struggle and fear that comes with being a Black man in America didn’t do anything but make all 3 or them look ignorant. Ol’ wannabe-ass internet activists.

I feel like she did this to the same tune that people say things about rape victims and how “they had it coming” so for that, this is relatively interesting. But if I had done it I would have clarified myself… Explained my actions. *shrugs*

Oh, I know the angle she was taking, it was just a shitty angle, period. Enlightenment on a struggle doesn’t come from shitting on another struggle. It just makes her look ignorant and stupid in her goal of bringing light to a struggle that actually does deserve attention. She went about it the wrong way, hands down. Do I feel bad for the millions of women who get harassed (and worse) on the street daily? Yes. Do I feel bad for the backlash she received for those tweets? Not at all. She deserved it because of how she did it. If she wants to take a stand and make a change, she needed to do it in a way that doesn’t make fun of someone else dealing with daily harassment as well. That doesn’t bring change at all, it only offends those that have dealt with the police harassment, along with doing nothing to ACTUALLY help the women that deal with the street harassment. It was an empty, offensive action as a whole.

Men mad that she did this when women get “you probably shouldn’t have dressed like a slut if you didn’t want to be raped” on the daily. Kinda shows the hypocrisy of men. She didn’t mean it so why are y’all so mad? She actually SHOWED what it’s like being a victim of rape, yet y’all are focused on your feelings being hurt. If anything you should say “wow now I see the ignorance of many males and I should change”

No she a therm fuck that bitch. You a therm too for trying to derail the conversation.

Lmao what’s a therm? I have a different view so you call me out my name. I wasn’t derailing the conversation just making her point clear to people that don’t seem to get it. She actually SHOWS how stupid blaming the victim is by using sarcasm but most of you don’t see it. She doesn’t think that. she’s showing the hypocrisy of men that say “you shouldn’t have been drunk if you didn’t want rape” but get mad at her CLEAR sarcasm. And if you’re not the type of man that does that then that’s even more reason not to get butt hurt. 😴😴😴
