hey bun. so basically baby hair are the shorter, wispy, frizzy curls at your hairline that black girls have. they’re cute but annoying so lotsa ppl slick them down with gel (and a toothbrush if ur going for clean as hell edges, but I’ve never bothered). Katy Perry just released photos of her basically imitating a black girl and she’s got her goddamn fringe plastered to her head instead of her baby hair (because duh she doesn’t have any). It’s just rly fucking embarrassing!! Like white ppl rllllly clutching at stealing every last drop of black culture right down to what we do with our fucking hairlines?!!? it’s ridic. she looks ridic. like she’s parodying us and it’s gross and offensive.
Okay this white dude had a black girlfriend and they were walking by me and the dude said, “you know what babe, realtors are so lazy when it comes to financing” and she literally replied with, “why do you have to talk about the most boring shit, Steve”.

White People: You're whats keeping racism alive
how many of us, as children, have had creeping thoughts of “i think i have a crush on somebody of my own gender” or “i wish i were the other gender” and dismissed them so swiftly and so effectively because those ideas were unnatural and unconscionable that they never had the chance to grow into our identities? how many more of us, when finally told from childhood that queerness is a real and good option, will be queer and will love it?
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.
let’s get this straight
it is not romantic to persistently pursue someone after they have refused you
