Brown girls are being killed too. Where is our protest? News articles? Why aren’t our deaths making headlines? At some point, black women and girls have to be accounted for. Someone has to take responsibility. I stand with our black men, God knows I do. However before I am somebody’s daughter, wife, mother - I am and always will be a black woman.
For the brown girls who did not make it to the headlines . (via browngirlslaw)

"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"

"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"

"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"

SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.

This is honestly the best explanation I have ever seen.

Louboutins are redefining the “nude” pump— now available in five shades.  Great initiative!

Thank you Christian Louboutin. 

This is so important.

Yes, thank you for making more shoes literally none of us will ever be able to afford.

Fashion trickles down though. When a high-end designer like Christian Louboutin acknowledges that there should be variety in “nude” pumps, it will invariably be copied by cheaper and more accessible brands. This is a huge, positive thing.

Remember that bus driver whose Bible saved his life in ‘reverse racist’ attack? Looks like he made it up

A Dayton bus driver, who claimed a Bible in his pocket saved his life after three Black youths shot and stabbed him, apparently made up the attack, reported the Dayton Daily News.

Rickey Wagoner told police on Feb. 24 he was repairing a mechanical malfunction early that morning outside his electric-powered bus when he was attacked by three teens who claimed they wanted to “shoot a polar bear” – which is allegedly street slang for a white person.

He told police one of the assailants urged another to kill the RTA driver if he wanted “to be all the way in the club,” and Wagoner said the teens were wearing dark blue bandanas that suggested gang affiliation.

The 49-year-old Wagoner told police one of the teens shot him twice, but one bullet was stopped by a copy of The Message—a paraphrasing of the Bible into contemporary English by Eugene Peterson—that was in his shirt pocket.

Wagoner said he was also shot in the leg and stabbed in the left arm, but he told police he wrestled the gun away and emptied the weapon’s clip as the assailants fled.

The FBI had even launched an investigation into the case as a possible hate crime.

However, police said Wagoner’s injuries were not consistent with defensive wounds – but were consistent with hesitation wounds, suggesting they were self-inflicted.

Surveillance cameras on the bus did not record any audio or video for the first five minutes Wagoner was off the bus, but the system recorded audio of several gunshots in the remaining 2 minutes and 20 seconds the driver was off the bus.

But police said the gunshots were in reverse order from what would be expected, based on Wagoner’s account.

Police found two bullets lodged in The Message, but investigators said it was “not credible” that the bullets could have been fired into the book without wounding Wagoner.

The only DNA found at the scene was from Wagoner, who police said did not sound out of breath when he drove away on the bus and called a dispatcher to report the shooting.

Police said Wagoner should have been winded since he claimed he had just “fought for his life” and then ran 200 to 300 feet.

Police have closed the case as unfounded, and Wagoner has not been charged with any criminal offense.

so how many black kids got rounded up because of this shitstain?
