Psychologists say that “trying not to think about it” will only make things worse because suppressed thoughts, cravings, or emotions fight back and become stronger. A more successful method is to accept these feelings and find other distractions.  Source

The blobfish is able to live 4,000 ft below sea level because it doesn’t have much muscle or skeletal structure. It only becomes “blobby” due to the change in pressure when it is brought above water. Source

When little black girls, especially little black dark skin girls, enter this world it is very clear, the rules are made very aware, who is beautiful, and valued, and who is not. Simply because we are black, simply because we are not white, we are deemed inferior, unintelligent, and ugly. 

You would rather paint your white women brown, then dare allow a black woman exist and be deemed as beautiful. It is not our place to be called beautiful unless there is a catch, unless there is an asterisk. “You’re pretty!*” 

*for a black girl 

You will spend money tanning, but call black women monkeys and ‘dirty’, our hair styles are ghetto, till your magazine has a step by step tutorial on how to achieve the same look, so it’s not ghetto, it’s just ghetto on us. It ‘works’ on you. 

We are taught certain rules when we are young, ‘You look so much prettier with straight hair!’ ‘Oh, thank god she light skin,’ ‘Don’t stay out in the sun you’ll look burnt,’ ‘Yeah but that hair isn’t professional-‘ 

We are taught to hide, to assimilate, to be close to whiteness because whiteness is acceptable and we are not. We get these rules as children. So to grow up, learning and adapting to these rules, and then seeing white people praised for stealing our culture, our dress,

if a photo of us dressed like that appeared on the news, people would say any injustice we faced, was deserved, ‘look at them, dressed like that.’

But you can wear it, freely, without judgement, without risk. No one would say you deserved to die. No one would give your killer half of a million dollars, as basically a congratulations, a pat on the back, for murdering you. 

Just our natural being is a threat to you, we are born villains to you. We possess this great threat, but at the same time, you look down on us, expect us to be stupid, low class, dirty… we are not on your level, you still see us as your servants in your culture, but pretend to be the gods in ours. 

It’s confusing. It’s confusing to be a black woman, to be made a joke, and all the punch lines, our hair, skin tone, lips, body… you try to imitate, but it’s not that, it isn’t, it’s our very existence that’s a joke to you. And if you are white, and reading this, and offended, 

Fuck you. 

Fuck you, fuck your whole ancestry line, and fuck your future generations.

this!! As a dark skinned black woman I had to learn to love the melanin and African features I was blessed with. Its been a journey. For all the beautiful black babies we love you, YOU ARE STUNNING!!

Honestly the self loathing that young black people are taught sickens my heart and I am so deeply sorry. Nobody should have to feel that.

That lip shit urns my nerves to the fullest. I can still where your real lips start! 

I remember learning how to put my hair up in a bun with a sock cuz it’s what my friends in middle school did and i thought it was cute. Then when i explained it to white girls, they thought that was ghetto. A few years later and that shit becomes a fashion trend cuz white girls started to do it. The fuck

I fell off updating the personal side of my blog so here we go picking it back up again. My Sunday:

We didn’t finish lilo and stitch so Im currently doing that. Mentally planning out a surprise. Today was good. The morning was amazing. Work was okay. Me and mike made it fun. Football sucked cause the giants suck but I still love them. Family dinner, really just the boys and mom though. Came home and swept. Jodies hair gets everywhere lol. I’m exhausted. This past weekend was my best in a long time. Great friends. Drinking. Laughing. And of course she made it even more dope. Guess I should say my prayers and shleep now though. Class in the AM

“Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.” I have never related to a quote more in my life than I do this one right here, right now.  (via reificationofnotion)

Realistic 

1)  The day my sister got back from the hospital after a suicide attempt. I didnt let go for about an hour.

2) Kid just found out his brother was shot and killed.

3) A Russian war veteran kneels beside the tank he spent the war in, now a monument.

4) Man sobbing at animal shelter. After being jailed briefly and his dog Buzz Lightyear impounded he couldn’t afford the $400 to get his pet back.

5) A firefighter gives water to a koala during the devastating Black Saturday bushfires that burned across Victoria, Australia, in 2009.

6) Alcoholic father with his son

7) Robert Peraza pauses at his son’s name on the 9/11 Memorial during the tenth anniversary ceremonies at the site of the World Trade Center.

8) Greg Cook hugs his dog Coco after finding her inside his destroyed home in Alabama following the Tornado in March, 2012

9) After two double lung transplants and years of battling cystic fibrosis, my good friend passed away last Saturday. This was one of the last pics taken with his mother.

These are probably some of the most powerful pictures I’ve ever seen and some hit close to home.

oh my god the first one :’(
