To the drunk people at Nellies yelling from the balcony at passerbys: “You there in the black shirt [or other descriptor]… You’re awesome, keep it up!”

Y’all are awesome. Keep it up.

When I was growing up, it seemed like black folks all lived on the same striving pages, but there were always those who violated our sense of community and the good things we wanted to believe about ourselves. It took hyper-vigilance, all those “grown” eyes, to keep the neighborhood in balance. When the eyes moved, grew old or closed for good, so did our neighborhoods.

Q

stallionmyheart asked:

Your previous post about Taylor Swift being racist was quite stupid to begin with. If you look carefully, even white girls were twerking. And if you see the Livechat then you would have known what was the whole point of the video. People seriously need to stop this thing. And by people I mean people like you. Even the haters and the anti fans are defending her because any person (who is not dense and not being intentionally) can see the true message instead of creating a hustle. Thank you.

Ayesha Siddiqi, “Can the White Girl Twerk?” :

"The thrill of appropriation lies in accessing the perceived authenticity of black sexuality, the success of appropriation lies in abandoning its natural form. Transfer to a white body elevates the action. It’s no longer primitive because while nonwhite culture is assumed to be rooted in instinct, white culture is one of intent. Elaborate nail art, like the kind Miley wears now, appears stylish on a white girl but described as “ghetto” on a black girl because on the white girl, it’s an aesthetic choice whereas black girls just don’t know any better. White people clamoring to up their cred by appropriating nonwhite culture do so hoping to be rewarded for choices that are falsely seen as inherent in people of color. It’s this savvy that Miley wants us to be convinced of."
