Yeah it’s pretty fucked up how people don’t realize that ideas like oh he doesn’t speak English well = he’s stupid are inherently racist and were pioneered by racists to ensure separation in academic and professional field. The way you speak English will never be an indicator of your intelligence ever

"You should know…

between your legs,
lies a garden of
tulips,
And I can’t wait to kiss your
(tu)-lips,
Water you until wet,
And lay over you
like the Sun."

"Just because you’re Black and you live in a Black community, which has been projected as a community of criminals. This is done. And once the public accepts this image also, it paves the way for a police-state type of activity in the Negro community. They can use any kind of brutal methods to suppress Blacks because "they’re criminals anyway." And what has given this image? The press again, by letting the power structure or the racist element in the power structure use them in that way."

CultureSOUL: *Vintage* African Americans - The Inkwell, Santa Monica, CA – 1920s-1940s

From Vintage Everyday & BlackPast.org:

“During the early 20th century, a section of the Santa Monica Beach referred to as the “Ink Well” was one of the few areas in California where African Americans were allowed to enjoy beach access in a largely segregated society…. The derogatory term “The Inkwell” was used by nearby Anglos in reference to the skin color of the beach-goers. Such names existed for other beaches across the U.S. as well.  Nonetheless, African Americans in Southern California, like their counterparts elsewhere, transformed the hateful moniker into a badge of pride.”

There was an “Inkwell” area of Martha’s Vineyard on the east coast also. Today, many affluent AAs still summer there including the Obamas who are scheduled to vacation on the Vineyard next month. More info on Santa Monica’s Inkwell here and here.

Y’all make fun of a baby’s natural hair, and then you dog out black women who wear sew ins and weaves.

Because y’all call Blue Ivy’s hair unkept, and then say Beyonce is a fake bitch for wearing sew ins and what not.

It’s not about hair. You hate black women period.
