Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.

— my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations. (via maarnayeri)

You are an idiot. That white boy said he likes black chicks and you called him gross and said get out of here, what the hell is wrong with you? Can't he like black woman? You sound racist.

I had some respect for you until you told that white guy (anon) to get out of here because of ‘his gross fetish’ for liking black woman. Jeeze what is up with you.. You are obviously ignorant and racist. Un-followed

… In that white boy’s words: “I’m somewhat addicted to gorgeous black woman now.” - disgusting, racist, and exactly what I’d expect from a white boy with a fetish for black women.

You can be addicted to chocolate, pie, cake, alcohol ect. Having an “addiction” to “gorgeous black women” is just plain gross. It’s dehumanizing.

We are not here for your exotic fantasies or your black/brown girl “preference”  - as some of you put it.

While I am not sure what sort of racism this is (openly fetishising women of a certain ethnicity), it definitely is racism. Some people I know would call it “positive” racism. I would mainly just call it gross. Blergh.

And the winner of most cultural appropriative at Coachella goes to… Vanessa Hudgens

Second Place: Kylie & Kendall Jenner

Honorable Mention: Selena Gomez

they just look SOOOOOOO wack. 

every time people go to one of these music festivals, they wanna do a buncha drugs and drink and “get in touch with their roots”. and the underlining concept is that these other cultures they appropriate from are more natural…more free …simple.. INFERIOR.. to the stressful, high tech, advanced white world they come from. and that somehow they are not apart of that world. …. but, YOU ARE THOUGH. Especially when you’re walking around appropriating. 

i understand if you’re not self aware enough to understand cultural appropriation.. BUT DAMN.. at least look in the mirror at how wack you look.

Any other day of the week, you got on khaki pants and button down aeropostale shirt and designer clothes and shit.. but OHHHHH, i’m at the music festival, lemme dress like what I think a Native American dresses like today. Was that the decision you made? Lol. That’s some wack shit. I’m sorry. 

All that, PLUS duckface. Ewwww.

Greetings Earthling is a collection of Outkast rarities, demos, collaborations and remixes. It’s mixed by Mick. We don’t know who Mick is, but Mick mixes like a mad man. The mix celebrates Andre 3000 and Big Boi reuniting on Coachella. You can watch that overhere.

Why “THIS Crap” Matters

When people observe art and say “THIS is art?! Pfft…even I could do that,” I agree with them 100%. There’s just one thing that they don’t have that most artists do: provocative delivery.

The subliminal messages, the imagery, the process, the overall methodology behind each piece is what makes the difference. That’s what catches patrons’ attention.

Look up any piece of art, iconic or not, and really investigate it. You just might see that there’s levels to this art shit.

Being black is not synonymous with being ugly. Never forget that.
