The more i watched how boys and girls behaved, the more i read and the more i thought about it, the more convinced i became that this behavior could be traced directly back to the plantation, when slaves were encouraged to take the misery of their lives out on each other instead of on the master. The slavemasters taught us we were ugly, less than human, unintelligent, and many of us believed it. Black people became breeding animals: studs and mares. A Black woman was fair game for anyone at any time: the master or a visiting guest or any redneck who desired her. The slavemaster would order her to have six with this stud, seven with that stud, for the purpose of increasing his stock. She was considered less than a woman. She was a cross between a whore and a workhorse. Black men internalized the white man’s opinion of Black women. And, if you ask me, a lot of us still act like we’re back on the plantation with massa pulling the strings.

Just a reminder that when yr humoring “sassy, fat black women” stereotypes yr perpetuating a “”modern”” mammy stereotype which is, as you might imagine, beyond racist.

Ya’ll should know better by now.

Why do you people have to make everything about race???
Long answer:White Europeans decided to colonize the rest of the world. They enslaved, massacred, segregated, displaced, tortured, disenfranchised, and raped other racial groups. They stole land, resources, and art. They put other races in zoos and death camps. They destroyed written and pictorial history. They suppressed the religions of other races. They dehumanized us. They refused to teach the history of these atrocities in their schools. They refused to acknowledge the achievements of other races. They used the theory of their racial superiority as their excuse. All social institutions reflect this history. All affected racial groups are still feeling the aftereffects of this. So it tends to come up a lot.
Short answer:Please shut up.

Reporting of incident where this man fucking forcibly ran into @bdoulaoblongata with his walker while saying he is Darren Wilson. Protestors were protesting this location because owner stopped allowing black patrons to enter, only white patrons and pulled a gun out on protestors.

Video clips of him allowing white patrons only and locking door to come.

I’m going to call and basically tell them they are breaking the law and can be sued. Something

Ferguson residents return for another day of protesting to find that overnight the police had ripped up their signs and threw them in the dumpster.

A second officer has been shot at. This time, a drive-by on the interstate. The officer was off-duty and has minor injuries resulting from broken glass. To be clear, the two shootings tonight are completely unrelated.
