Save your money
Instead of buying the natural hair product line for companies like motions, pantene and other corporations
Spend the extra buck and support black business
There are so many small companies out black folk making their own products
With better ingredients than the chemicals companies put in it
Really, do some good for your hair and the community
Invest in your hair and your people

especially since those companies had been ignoring us for so long, now they see that natural hair is not a trend and are trying to get every penny from us (while still selling/making products with harmful chemicals)

is there a list for which companies are black owned? wondering about the cantu shea, shea moisture and palmer’s lines….

Shout out to everyone dating their crush. You put yourself out there and look at you now. Wow. Proud of you.

if someone ever tells you “but I don’t think of you as ______ I think of you as a person” what they are really saying is “I don’t consider _______ people”

Exactly. That is not a compliment.

Sometimes #BlackTwitter gets it right, and other times Black twitter gets it really right

I was down for Pharrell, but he is in sore need of a thorough dragging to rid him of his White-gaze thirst and tacit respectability politics BS. I mean, what’s next, an “Accidental Racist” collab with LL & Macklemore?

Honorable mention to @LouMinoti:

like as soon as his iAMOther thing got started i knew he thought he was an “Exceptional Negro”

Hey all!

This summer I’m trying to go an environmental education trip to the Catskills in NY for a week to learn about environmental justice issues such as food insecurity, local farming, growing organic produce, etc. This is really important to me because I eventually want to make a career out of of tackling how race and class issues tie into food insecurity.

I’m turning here to tumblr because my parents aren’t supportive of my pursuit of something that isn’t pre-med. Being old fashioned Ghanians, they have pretty much disregarded most of my pursuits and refuse to fund anything they personally see as unnecessary. As such, I’ve been forced to turn to alternative methods to raise money for the trip.

There are 4 units for the trip, each costing ~$800. Considering there is absolutely no way for me to raise ~$3200 I have decided that I will only be staying for 2 units (May 25-June 8), totalling to ~1600. So far the program has a awarded me a need based scholarship of $600. It is my hope that through tumblr I will able to raise $200 to pay for the remainder of the first unit so I can pay the rest out of pocket.

Anything will do! Even it’s just 50 cents or a dollar! I would be SO appreciative of ANY moment!

Thank you in advance!

I’m finally catching up with the Harry Potter movies and OMG none of these actors have ANY chemistry with each other.

I don’t buy Ginny/Harry for a second. It seems so forced.

It seems like preferences are okay as long as it’s not Black women. But then it’s also not okay for Black women to have preferences other than Black men.

X

That’s because what you’re describing aren’t preferences, but systematic prejudices enforced on the population often through various forms of media. You’re describing White supremacy. You’re describing a pervasive and toxic anti Black woman sentiment.
