If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t…

black athletes today are lacking in their political presence
Please, do not excuse them. In fact we should be harder on them. We expect white people to hate us. We expect everyone else to not understand us. But black men are supposed to love us. They are supposed to be our allies in this fight. They are supposed to respect and adore and honor us. And yet we find ourselves begging for love and wishing they would care for us. It isn’t right. Love is supposed to be unconditional and yet love from black men is nothing but conditions; they love us IF we look a certain way. They love us IF we act a certain way. That’s not love. And it’s unfortunate that after all this time, in this day and age we still have to ask “why don’t black men love us?
my mother, after a friend tried to justify why some black men disrespect black women (via youngblackandvegan)
To ask an oppressed people to react peacefully to violent oppression is to request a submission to violence. The reaction should not be equated with the instigator. POC have every right to react violently
how come white boys are given adhd medication and called gifted when they act out but black boys are placed in remedial classes and passed off as stupid???? is that not a valid issue among men’s rights activists???
No. Friendzoning and Fedora’s. That’s it.
Black men are hated
