"I’m not black, I’m mixed."
“I’m not black, I’m creole.”
“I’m not darkskin, I’m BROWNskin.”
“I’m usually lighter, I have a tan now.”
“Let me get out the sun I don’t wanna get darker.”
“I’m not ALL black.”
“We’re all technically mixed if you think about it”
“He’s too dark for my taste.”
“I only date mixed girls.”
“I’m not black, I’m brown.”

Wondering when self hate will stop.








Are you really comparing the two, is that what’s happening in this.

fixed it

Reblogging only for the fixed picture

Racism leads to 8 year olds getting shot in the face by white neighbors. It leads to 17 year olds getting shot in the chest, and their murderers walking free to perpetrate gun violence again. Racism leads to lynchings, houses set on fire and people being beaten to death. Racism leads to people not being hired for jobs they’re qualified for because they are black. It leads to people not getting interviews because their name SOUNDS black. It leads to lower wages, poverty and children being raised in school districts without sufficient resources due to poor income tax revenue. walking around in the skin of a person of color is a daily test of endurance. 
Being accused of racism kind of makes you feel bad for a little bit. And then you go back to doing white-people things. 

Bolded in agreement.

It’s just better in black & white.

Hi!!!! Your hair is just amazing!!! Do you have any advice, tips, product info, anything you can suggest to help other natural chics as myself? I transitioned for a year, and have been fully natural 1 yr/4 months, I can't get my hair to grow. As far as I know I take really good care of it, my relaxed hair was very long and fine, and now my natural hair is very fine, hard to keep moisturized, and has reached a stand still. I have clipped ends, deep conditioned, etc. Please help!!!! TY Nakisha

Hi Nakisha :)

Thank you for the compliment! It sounds to me like you’re doing everything you should do to get healthy hair (deep condition, trim, avoid heat damage, use satin/silk scarves & sulfate-free shampoos, etc), but sometimes it helps us to think about what we put into our bodies, as well. Some tips I can give you are:

  • Drink lots of water! Water makes everything else grow…
  • Eat healthy foods that are rich in vitamins and protein
  • Avoid processed and fried/fast foods

I hope you find these helpful. I didn’t think much about length after I BC’d.. I was so worried about getting my hair to a healthy state that I didn’t even really notice how much it had grown. It kind of snuck up on me. I guess a watched pot really doesn’t boil.
