Black women need to start a hashtag #icanbeboth where we post pictures of ourselves with degrees, at graduation, sitting in your office, being successful etc. along side pics of us partying, twerking, dancing, having fun as NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS DO.

Because this idea that you are either a hoe or a sophisticated woman is toxic as hell. It’s a racialized version of the virgin-whore dichotomy. I can be both a sexual being and an role model/educator at the same damn time.

"She [Blue] does like her mother’s music—she watches [Beyoncé’s concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more … Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the “Magna Carta”, the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliché. I’m really serious. Just to see her—‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it."

*after being called cassius clay at the weigh ins*

"My name is Muhammad Ali and you will announce it right there in the center of that ring after the fight, if you don’t do it now.I will punish you!"

Ali bloodied Terrell and almost knocked him out in the eighth round, Ali taunted Terrell throughout the match hitting him with sharp jabs and shouting between punches,What’s my name?” ”what’s my name?” “Say It!” Terrell couldn’t defend himself anymore -all he could do was put his gloves up to his face,Both eyes were cut,His left eye was completely closed by the end of the eighth round. The right eye was closing.But The fight still lasted 15 rounds.You know why it lasted 15 rounds? That’s how long  Ali wanted it to last.He wanted to punish terrell.He wanted to tell the world What his name was.

In the 12th round terrell finally said Muhammad Ali.

Black people don't deserve spots in this world, you guys only take up space and shoot people. If it was just whites I promise you the world would be a better place.

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

THIS IS THE SHIT
