the stance of many governments around the world has been “if we can just get rid of the problem a.k.a. “the blacks” then we will solve all of our problems”… And niggas hate themselves so much that they just eat that shit up.. cause… being mixed looking is the ultimate goal…..

"The desire for personal post-race status is an impulse I encounter frequently. Without fail, it comes from well-intentioned white people looking to be absolved of whiteness – not through their politics, but their biographies. They listen studiously to my take on race privilege, then raise their hands to identify themselves as white but gay, or white but Irish and thus part of an ethnicity that was once considered nonwhite, or white but from an all-Dominican neighborhood.

My response to such statements is always the same. I have no desire to belittle any aspect of your identity, I say, but either you walk through this world with white skin privilege or you don’t. There’s no such thing as being pulled over for Driving While Wanting To Be Black. Sometimes how you ‘self-identify’ is irrelevant. You could be a gay Irish dude from the heart of Washington Heights, with a Senegalese lover and a degree from Morehouse to boot. The cop and the judge and the loan officer and the potential employer are only going to check one mental box. And when they do, you’re going to benefit from the way they see you, like it or not."

Mammy Two Shoes of Tom and Jerry 

how did a show with no dialogue and next to know human characters still manage to perpetuate racist stereotypes? Whiteness.

What pisses me off is the fact that in 2008 they did a reboot of Tom and Jerry which still plays on television today I think. Instead of creating a non-stereotypical Black character/pet-owner… instead of re-imagining this Black woman…. They just scrapped her and made her a White lady… and named her “Mrs. Two Shoes“….

Everything about her is the same though. It’s just a bleached stereotype of a Black woman.

SENEGAL SKIN LIGHTENING // Zed Nelson published in Marie Claire Russia

One of the worst consequences of racism is the point when the black people start thinking less of themselves because of the color of their skin. It is only natural, since everywhere they look there are white or at least whiter people of them as exponents of a better life, better jobs, etc. White people (and especially white woman) is set as a beauty standard and all the black girls are trying their best to look more Caucasian. It is really disturbing and sad, but these are the consequences of the lifestyle and propaganda against the black people that was active for many years.

Senegalese women argue that paler skin helps them stand out from the crowd, and the majority of Senegalese men say they prefer women with lighter skin. In the photo: a dermatologist in Dakar keeps photos of people with severe consequences of using this sort of tools for skin whitening. She says that people are aware of the risk, but continue to use these products, and then come to her with the consequences.
