"Negros have proceeded from a premise that equality means what it says, and have taken white Americans at their word when they talked of it as an objective. But most whites in America...proceed from a premise that equality is a loose expression for improvement. White America is not even psychologically organized to close the gap---essentially it seeks only to make it less painful and less obvious but in most respects to restrain it." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community, 1967.
Lol they used ariana and Victoria justice 💀 but on a serious note any time someone posts something along the lines of this with a caption saying : " black is beautiful" " black girls are beautiful" " black men-" " black this, black that" it's always met with the counterattack of " everyone is beautiful." Lol TRIGGERED yeeeeah MaaaAn We understand that. I get that. we get that. but Uplifting a particular group that if I have to mention has been oppressed for centuries shouldn't be met with any kind of rebuttal. YOU DONT HAVE TO SAY THIS ALL THE TIME - WE GET IT NO ONE SAID OTHERWISE no need to say this Especially since as I said before our group of people were oppressed for centuries 💀 and for centuries were told that their skin was not beautiful & that they were ugly. That everything about them was ugly So , You can't just use the card " everyone is beautiful" because of a post like this lmfao. There's no argument bro, what is there to argue about who said everyone was not beautiful. Right now at this point (whenever) someone posts something like this please Remember we are just uplifting our black sisters and brothers and nothing is wrong with that . Why do I need to point this out, why does this need to be explained ? Lmao I do not see why i need to post something like this because of the people's misconception that is their own fault for THEIR misinterpretation so if you are one of these people don't be like upset if someone who is black gets upset with you for pointing out something they already knew lmao. In conclusion no one said everyone was not beautiful uplifting our brothers and sisters is very harmless and does not need to be met with an counterattack /// #blackwomenmatter#blackisbeautiful#melanin#blackwomenmatter#melaninonfleek#blacklivesmatter#blackmen#blackwomen#blacklives#blackgirlsaremagic
Freshman year was beyond a success for me, yet also a complete failure.
I started highschool at CHS in Indiana, I had blue hair, wore band shirts, and had a terrible outlook on life. I didn't make any friends for a long time, until I met a small group of people who no one else wanted to be friends with besides each other. I was okay with that, I accepted it, I loved it and I love them. I may not speak to them now which truly sucks but I haven't stopped thinking of them. Then theater came along, being Booker Anderson in "Subpar Heroes" was a blast, and I felt so comfortable around most of the cast...and others I didn't think they liked me very much. Co-student directing "The crucible" was beyond exciting, so many times I could've fallen asleep but no. I wish I could've stood to see the performance.
Freshman year is when I lost my grandmother, it's why I moved back to Ohio. I miss her a lot, but I love her even more.
When I started school at LHS I already knew almost everyone, I didn't really expect people to talk to me since hardly anyone spoke to me while I was in Indiana. I've made better relationships with those I lost though and I appreciate them so much. I've also made other friends not really expecting to make any at all. It's good to end the year as a dragon. 💕

Follow/like for more animated gifs! I can't with black folk sometimes. The most backwards thinking people will believe they are woke. Like Chris Rock said, "Nobody hates black people more than black people". Screaming about colorism but calling dark skinned girls ugly is not woke. Attacking white people for having dreads but wanting freedom of expression is not woke. Being angry about Trump but not knowing a damn thing about politics isn't woke. It's just Angry Black People Syndrome. I for one don't claim to be at all woke. I'm pretty liberal. I think attacking people for the style of clothes they wear is bullshit. I think looking down on other black people who don't know rap is bullshit. I think calling black people "white" simply cause they don't agree with you is bullshit. But I also think the Black Lives Matter movement is amazing and necessary. When I see older black men get shot on tv, I get scared for my dad. He is the nicest man on earth...no, he's kind of a dick actually, which is probably why I think he'd get shot. But it's still scary! He is one of the most important people on Earth to me and I couldn't imagine losing him in that way. Seeing all the shootings was the first time I felt in real danger. The day Trump was elected, I was afraid to leave the house for a week cause I just knew someone would act out. Specially since I lived in the South. Like with all movements, there's some crazies and some phonies, but it's still a beautiful thing to me. Anyways, share/tag the woke friend who dont even know the lyrics to "Wade in the Water" and "Knuck if You Buck". LOVE, PEACE AND CHICKEN GREASE!
