You know what’s sad….
#martin luther king
Nobody wants to be black, especially black people, but I mean after centuries of being told you ain’t shit, who can blame you. When you watch tv and the people getting the most praise are lighter skinned and have straighter hair, who can blame you. When rappers say stuff like “beautiful black women I bet that bitch look better red” & “these nappy headed hoes need a perminator.” who can blame you. When people AROUND you make comments about not wanting to be dark skinned or having “good hair” who can blame you. This all roots back to slavery, but IT DOESN’T NEED TO CONTINUE!!!!! We should not continue to have the ignorant mindset!!! Say it with me, BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL! Like Malcom X said who taught you to hate the color of your skin? The texture of your hair? The shape of your nose? Who said there was boundaries to beauty? We need to RISE as black people! Because our race is the race most SHITTED on & on top of that by our own people! And if WE ourselves put down our race, what does that make other races think? That only makes it okay to dog us too and it’s not. God makes no mistakes and if he put you on the Earth with dark skin and nappy hair it was not a mistake and IT’S NOT A BAD THING. Another thing, I need you people that get relaxers or texturizers or put weave in your hair then have the NERVE to put down a girl who is comfortable in her skin to wear her hair natural you need a reality check as if the hair that grows out of your scalp isn’t the same, if anything she should be putting you down for being ashamed of who you are, embrace what God gave you because he makes no mistakes, even if you don’t have nappy hair or aren’t black how can you sit here & insult someone for what there born with? Telling someone they should “GO GET A PERM!” could be equivalent to telling a kid that’s autistic to “go get brain surgery!” it’s not right, we need to EMBRACE who we are in every single way.
Violence is not the answer , it’s the question , the answer is YES .
Where i’m from almost whenever there is a problem everyone retaliates to violence . Someone cut you in line ? Oh , you better fuck that bitch up . Someones talking shit ? Make her EAT shit ! You & Your Best friend starting to drift apart ? You better give her them hands so people know you guys are no longer best friends . It’s ridiculous , especially PLANNED fights . Yes , people actually plan fights like ” Meet me at the bike rack at 5:59 BE THERE and if you a second late i’m assuming you scary ! “ Then there’s always people that gotta record the fight ! Instigating like a mother fucker ! You just watch the video & all you here on the other side of the camera is someone giving advice to their friend who’s gettting there ass whooped , like there words are gonna magically motivate them , like ” BEAT HER ASS , WHY YOU ON THE GROUND ?! WHAT YOU CRYING FOR WHAT YOU CRYING FOR ? ” then when their friend loses they say some mediocre ass words of comfort like ” you still got out there and for that i respect you ! ” you know if it was the other girl you would of been celebrating talking ALLLL the shit in the world .
You know what i realized today ? Time doesn’t stop for anybody . You read that right , your eyes aren’t messing with you ; no . damn . body . Like no matter what times going to keep going forward so that’s why i’m here telling you mother fuckers to cherish that shit ! Live in the moment . Enjoy whatever age you’re at whether it be 8 or 21 (and if your 8 i don’t know what you’re doing on tumblr you should be outside playing hopscotch you got your teen years to be stuck in the house on the computer) because you’ll always get older , but you’ll never get any younger .
Fire vs. Fire ?
you know , it doesn’t make sense to fight hate with hate , because it’s just like fire . you can’t fight fire with fire because it’ll just be a bigger fire and or problem . Hate works the same way . The only way to stop hate is with love , because what’s the opposite of fire ? water . These two cancel each other out . For example if you’re getting bullied punching them in the face will solve the problem temporarily , but what happens once their black eye heals ? They’ll be back after you . Now if you give them a hug (because chances are their mom didn’t hug em’ enough) they’ll be confused , but it just might work . (;
Nothing’s sadder to me then people who just accept being depressed . People who are so miserable they just expect bad things to happen to them . They think all life is , is misery . They don’t ever think things will get better … If you’re one of those people snap out of it ! Have you ever stopped to think , that you’re not letting yourself be happy ? Sadness is temporary , things will get better . The reason you’re sad is because you’re not where you’re suppose to be , keep your head up & keep it pushing .
Those little things that make you feel below average . Those little things that constantly eat at you . Those little things that make you feel bad about yourself . Those little things that day after day remind you that you ain’t shit . Those little things don’t seem so little after all .
A great man once said ” Everyone is a genius , but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it’ll live it’s whole life thinking it’s stupid ” he couldn’t be more right . What’s the definition of a genius ? Someone who is exceptionally intellectual right ? That definition gives no limits to the possibility of which someone could be a genius . Who’s to say you can’t be a genius at shoe tying ? At cleaning ? Being a genius does not just mean being a genius academically , everyone has something they’re exceptional at you just got to find it .
#keep it real
I think in all cases it’s better to tell the truth then to sugarcoat something even if it hurts , because you won’t be doing them a favor by lying you’ll only be doing them a favor with the truth because the truth shall set you free (:
