College Photoshops Black Man’s Head Into Marketing Campaign, Forgets To Change White Hands
For the life of me I can’t figure out why I grunge at the names Univ. of Alabama and Ol’ Misss…I hate those schools and I don’t know why any person of any color would pay money to go there! Even if they paid me I wouldn’t ever attend those institutions. EVER!
Have you seen this cutie all over tumblr/facebook/the world wide internet?
Well my name hasn’t been attached to her much but yes, I took these shots.
photographer: ME aka: arianna elizabeth
OHMYGOD. the first pic killled me.
this is the most adorable thing ever. my feeeels
This melted me…this kid is beyond!
My childhood struggle. My grandmom didn’t give one single solitary fuck about the whiplash she was giving me. And when she tried to comb through…don’t even get me started. Let’s just say, I cried REAL THUG tears.
^^that, plus many combs broken
Broken combs, tears, migraine headaches, almost missing the bus doing this shit in the morning… LORD!
Dont forget getting popped with the brush or comb because of moving !!
don’t forget about having to slap your scalp because your braids were too goddamn tight to scratch
the struggle is so real…smh Do we even want to talk about neck/side of the head burns from the hot comb?
or praying your fingers won’t get burn when you have to hold your ears down so they can get them edges…
was anyone else ever lifted off they seat because the comb wouldn’t go through their hair? there was like 3 seconds of levitation before the comb broke. real hood girl struggles.
lets not talk about the blue grease that was used just to keep your hair straight and silky for Sunday service. Lawd the memories
The smell of frying hair, hair grease, and cigarettes takes me all the way back. Smelling all those things at the same time takes me all the way back.
The bigger issue with Miley Cyrus is her complete obliviousness to the differences in public reaction when it comes to herself versus black people. When Miley Cyrus plays at ratchet, we get three reactions: fangirls/fangays spooing all over themselves telling the internet how much they love her, non-fans giving deep eyerolls and moving on to the next, and middle-aged white people making vague statements about how they’re “concerned” about her state of mind. The reaction she does not get is that if she were shot by a neighborhood watchman, then she deserved it because she flips the bird and does drugs and glamorizes hoodrat behavior.
That’s my problem. My problem is black kids like Trayvon Martin play at being ratchet everyday and the rest of America looks at them like they’re all budding criminals. The defense in that case put Trayvon Martin’s character on trial, by wanting us to infer that he was headed down the wrong path to prison anyway. Because of a few Myspace photos and a toxicology report, we should be glad we got that thug off the streets. They turned him into a thug for doing the exact same things that Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber do, the exact same things that millions of little white kids do in their gated communities, driving around in Daddy’s SUV listening to old-school NWA and rolling spliffs and bragging about it on social media.
That is what white privilege looks like. If you are a white apologist who continuously doubts that white privilege exists, ask yourself if Miley Cyrus or any other 20-year-old white girl would be put on trial posthumously if someone shot her for walking around in a hoodie. That is the definition of white privilege.
