My new series explores the importance of black women creating, defining, and redefining space. It’s critical that black women understand that they are allowed to take up space. Although it doesn’t always feel like we are always allowed to make room for ourselves, my hope is that this imagery can inspire others to create their own space and define it however they choose.
Never thought I’d have to disown my mama 😔
But, where the lie though….we are killing ourselves.
Okay, and the police are killing us at record numbers
You’re not about to use the black on black crime myth to delegitimize the extrajudicial murder of black and brown peoples by law enforcement
What she said is the police isn’t letting black and brown folks kill themselves anymore because of whatever difference, the cops are just dropping us.. and she’s saying to the cops, thanks, but no thanks! we got it covered. And my dude, black on black crime is not a myth. she didn’t say our people weren’t being murdered, doesn’t take a genius to see we have a huge target on our backs.
Black on black crime is a HUGE myth. Intraracial crime is the NORM, and the rate of intraracial crime nearly mirrors ours across other races. What black on black crime conversations IGNORE are the hundreds of years of slavery/lynching/hyperaggressive policing/block busting/general oppression that led us to the point we are now.
Black on black crime IS a myth. Black on black crime is used to justify the vilification of us as a race, the general and unjust fear of black bodies and black men in general as savages and heathens. And the fact that we don’t discuss white on white crime in the same frame is evidence of this.
here’s some recommended reading for you http://prospect.org/article/why-black-black-crime-dangerous-idea
dude, saying black on black crime is a myth is saying we don’t kill each-other..when i say B ON B crime i’m not talking about the fake numbers, and fact people use when debating
Or let’s talk about the fact that the crime rates in black communities dropped sharply from 2005-2011 and the fact that white crime increased in the same period, but somehow white on white crime isn’t an issue…black on black crime is a false issue used to demonize blacks and until you realize that you shouldn’t speak on it, real shit
Noooooo, not Badu too!!!!!!!!! Ugh!
She really just broke my heart
I’m not surprised because I am pretty sure she has shown this side before
these celebs have been really showing out
i have a headache.
Maybe I was too much of a stan to let this go, but I want to imagine that her retweeting ppl assuming she was being sarcastic or using satire means that that’s what she was doing. Was it sensitive or well timed? No. I mean…this may be me trying to make it right, but c’mon son. She’s an oddball, but she’s not ignorant.
Thank goodness this was just some misguided kids getting overexcited about pumpkins and sports and not in reaction to systematic oppression that was once again upheld and reinforced by the owes that supposedly protect them. Because that would be an uncalled for overreaction.
