Now, Australia isn’t racist but….

The Prime Minister has stated that the single most defining day of Australia’s history was the arrival of the first fleet - the day that pushed Australia into the modern world.

I admit we knew we’d get in trouble. That part’s true. We knew people would be worried, and we still ran away, anyway. But something also happened, which we didn’t do on purpose. When we first met each other, something happened to us.

"recent adoption of twerking"

white women need to just shut the fuck up forever.

everyone you love will eventually disappoint you. 

I find it funny how they only attacked Beyonce and Rihanna (black women), but didn’t attack any white women like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga. I don’t even know who these bitches are and I plan on keeping it that way.

It’s so frustrating when white women talk about black female sexuality in famous black artists because our history of sexuality and liberation from patriarchy is SO FUCKING DIFFERENT from white women’s.

I don’t want to put all black people under an umbrella, but black people who were enslaved from the South and West parts of Africa didn’t all come from backwards-ass woman-hating patriarchal societies. Our earliest forms of music and dance include sex because NOT EVERYONE FUCKED UP SEX, WHITE PEOPLE. As it turns out tons of people have lived for millennia without equating sex to evil.

Like hello?! Our female artists were out here killin the music game throughout the whole history of African American music. All of the genres which we invented have prominent figures both male and female, before white woman singers were even taken seriously. AND WE’VE BEEN SINGING ABOUT SEX AND SELF EMPOWERMENT SINCE THE HISTORY OF AF AM MUSIC.

So back the fuck up white women. Stop talking about our artists. They are from a different culture than you that is struggling between being shaped simultaneously by your sexist culture and our music tradition. When Beyoncé sings about sex and self empowerment, it is not faux. She is LITERALLY following female African American musical tradition, which you don’t know about because nobody ever compelled you to care about black people. You are BEING RACIST when you assume all women experience what you experience.

And if you’re a white woman in the music industry you should be doubly ashamed of yourself. Is your music history whitewashed or what?

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.
