The Latest

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

Happy White People’s Independence Day!

Independence Day also has nothing to do with white people’s independence slavery wasn’t even largely present at the time America split from GB…


“with the presence of 450,000 enslaved African Americans in the 13 colonies. Slavery was practiced in every colony in 1775, but it was crucial to the economy and social structure from the Chesapeake region south to Georgia. Slave labor produced the great export crops of the South-tobacco, rice, indigo, and naval stores. Bringing slaves from Africa and the West Indies had made settlement of the New World possible and highly profitable. ” (x)

white people need to stop making up history up like nigga’s can’t google the truth in 30 seconds

Alot of people really don’t know what their talking about when calling people dark skinned. Being intensely melinated is a blessing. All those that have a problem with dark skin show their indoctrination into systems that caste people based on their melanin content.

Look at the BEAUTY of this man.

There’s an exciting brand that I’ve been seeing all over these social media streets that has me excited and they go by the name of Bantu Wax. Founded in 2009 by Yodit Eklund, Bantu Wax is an African surf and lifestyle brand that’s main goal is to “make people aware that there are amazing beaches and great surf in Africa.

Yodit found a void and quickly filled it. I admire her motivation behind creating the brand. 

"Inspired by Africa’s transition from dark continent bearer of light, tales of the mermaid goddess of oceans Mami Wata, and a passion for surfing, Bantu was created by merging the rich history of African art and textiles with Africa’s deeply rooted surf culture."

Africa is growing, and with multiple companies eyes on the continent, Bantu Wax is doing an awesome job of preserving African culture not only through the use of Africa’s textiles but also creating jobs and helping local communities while changing the outside view of the continent.
