"I think that one of the most detrimental issues with regard to the vision of black women in in the media is not having well-rounded images.You see one thing where you see the other, very much the virgin whore complex it is somebody is really really fabulously great like so great you like really I’ve never met that person or they’re so foul and nasty that once again you never met that person.”
OMG THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS.
The Obama ladies are GORGEOUS!
All encompassing fabulous! Mummy would term this, “ladies who lunch”. That’s a good thing, by the way.” LOL
This picture deserves a good theme song.
They look wonderful!

What inspired you to make Brenda’s Got A Baby?
"I was reading the New York Post when I was doing the movie Juice and it was this story - it started out to be this big story about this family who died because they didn’t have heat and they left the gas on. Everybody died except for this girl who moved in with her cousin. (Second cousin.) She started dating her second cousin. He got her pregnant. Nobody knew that she was pregnant, and I was like "dag!" And it was over a week, but the story kept getting smaller and smaller and smaller. And I was like, "This is very important. More important than Juice, to me! It was a bigger story than Juice!
And right now, nobody talks about that. No young black male… No black males talk about black females like we should. We need to take more responsibilities for our sisters because if we don’t, who will? Because if you look at it now, black females are held lower of the totem pole than anybody." (1992)

Reblogging again because I’m sure there’s still someone who needs this message …. Strike that I know.
redflawedglass replied to your photo: “Stephen Slaughter Portrait of Two Society Women England (c. 1740s) …”:Sometimes it means the painting is in private hands, or (heaven forbid) no longer exists. :(
That’s true. Sometimes it’s because it’s not on display…
Happy Birthday Otis Redding! You are a legend that continues to inspire our #SonsAndBrothers.
Yes. He was 26 when he died. 26.

It’s not a small minority like please come back to planet earth
Idk what y’all seeing but on the east coast it’s all black love 👀
This isn’t a regional thing.
We’re talking about years of nation-wide misogynoir; the black women having to be in the back of the struggle, black women having to keep taking Ls in the name of the struggle, black women having to be the strong/mule/mammies, the masculinization of black women perpetuated by black men, black women being abused/killed by their black men partners (you saw how niggas responded to Ray Rice), the black men blaming domestic violence on being provoked by lack women, black women being told that all they’re good for are their bodies, black women being dismissed when non-black women wear/obtain those same features, all these celebrities talking shit about black women/dark-skinned women, black men dating/marrying non-black in disproportionate numbers, black men being the only race that have an aversion to their women (as dating studies demonstrate), all the niggas talking shit on twitter/tumblr (don’t go for the they’re just a few looking for laughs-look at their retweets, look at the number of black men agreeing with them), all the black men with tumblrs who don’t have any pics of black women on their blogs (maybe a few if they pass the paper bag test), the ankh niggas reducing all problems black people face on black women, the lack of reciprocity for issues that black women face, shit like “ruin a black girl’s day” (no other race of men does this!), the culture of infidelity (side chicks?)
I’m not saying black love doesn’t exist. I want to believe it does. But there’s a lot of shit that black men need to sort out. There’s a lot of shit that’s not balanced.
😦😧 this changed my perspective
