Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

This is just a reminder that a lot of our natural hair products and lines are owned by white companies and they really don’t care about us, so buy black, it actually goes back into our community!

Black owned:

Non black:

  • African pride 
  • Soft& Beautiful Botanicals
  • Care free curl
  • Dark and lovely Au naturale
  • Motions naturally you
  • Dr. Miracle’s Curl Care
  • Sof n’ Free Gro Healthy Nothing But
  • ORS curls unleashed (Organic root stimulator)
  • Pantene truly natural
  • Naturally Silk Elements

There are so many more that can be added to each list. Bottom line, help black business. And an added bonus to helping our community out is a lot of the lines are more natural or Vegan. 

More black owned natural hair additions, cus why not?

More non-black owned

Support black business!

Carol’s daughter is no longer black owned??

Wow.

A lot of shit makes sense now.

This is actually very good to know

For all my naturals!

||| Publisher’s blurb ||| 
The British country house has long been regarded as the jewel in the nation’s heritage crown. But the country house is also an expression of wealth and power, and as scholars reconsider the nation’s colonial past, new questions are being posed about these great houses and their links to Atlantic slavery.
This book, authored by a range of academics and heritage professionals, grew out of a 2009 conference on ‘Slavery and the British Country house: mapping the current research’ organised by English Heritage in partnership with the University of the West of England, the National Trust and the Economic History Society. It asks what links might be established between the wealth derived from slavery and the British country house and what implications such links should have for the way such properties are represented to the public today.In order to improve access to this research, a complete copy of the text is free to download from the left hand side of this page.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

The Talk - Raven-Symoné Controversy Comments


I’m SO glad about what Sheryl said, when you were starting OUT or not as successful, were you “colorless” then? If you were broke would you be colorless or black? Another thing, I HATE when people go that’s not ALL of who I am. I don’t want people to black out, “not see,” or downsize ANY of my traits. I am a BLACK, DARKER COMPLECTED, FEMALE and MANY more things. But ALL my parts are important. I see things a certain way, I go about things a certain way because I’m those things. I’m not asking people to zero in on ONE thing but to RESPECT all things about me and discriminate or oppress because of those things.

YES, SHERYL!! YASSSS!!

YES.

yeeeessss Sheryl!
