saying reckless stuff while hungry is equivalent to saying reckless stuff while drunk
If I were a reporter, I would say Benedict Cumberbatch’s name wrong on a regular basis and wait for his fanbase to explode and for people to try and correct me. Then I’d sit back and explain to them how this is the same way the media treated Quvenzhane Wallis and none of these people had complaints when it happened to her.
Kanye West is wearing leather jackets with spikes in them, and wearing jeans with metal bands names on them…
can’t wait for every ghetto swag hoodrat to start dressing like metal heads.
Really can’t wait….All the kids who thought people like me were weird for wearing leather jackets or all black with metal band names mocked us.
I’ve been rocking the leather pants and metal band logo for as long as I can remember. Does this mean I’m a hipster and had “swag” before Kanye?
Its not the matter that he’s black. The issue is that he is a mainstream pop/hip-hop person so because of what he wears is “swag” to the mainstream sensation they’re all gonna wear these things which at one point which I was insulted for wearing all the time. So my problem is that I’m gonna see people who mocked me for wearing this attire are now wearing it cause its “hip”.It’s not a problem that he’s Black but you sure are mad that all the—and I quote— “ghetto swag hoodrats” might start wearing leather jackets. Oh, boo hoo, you fucking asshole. How dare you sit there and say ignorant ass shit like that and then say it’s not about race. You made it about race the second those words came off your damn fingertips. People are wearing leather jackets, boo hoo. You know who else wears them? Pretty much everybody following the summer 2013 fashion trends. You know who has ownership over spiked leather jackets? NOBODY. Get over yourself. Do some reevaluating of your damn spirit too. “Ghetto hoodrats”
You’re really trying to make it sound like cultural appropriation, like you were oppressed for wearing a leather jacket and now everybody else can wear them without that treatment. You can’t be serious. You were mocked for wearing a jacket. I’m sorry. That sucks. But don’t act like it’s some huge god damn crime that now other people wear leather jackets without being made fun of. Punks are’t some fucking oppressed group. Just. Stop.“Ghetto swag hoodrats,” ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS.
That awkward moment where rock n roll came from black people, and hip hop and punk shared the same style and solidarity before punk and rock n roll completely sold out to mainstream white consumerism that helped to further a racist separatist riff via white supremacy but you know… white people don’t care about rock n roll as an entity or history, white people care about ostracizing PoC (and especially black people) from their creations and then getting extra racist when people dare to journey back for reclamation.
Can we take a minute to appreciate that this ignorant racist mother fucker is doing exactly the same thing they’re complaining about (mocking people for manner of dress) ANNNND they’re not even original with it (this shit is historical); black people within rock n roll POST RACIST CONSUMERISM THAT SEPARATING AND OUTSTED ROCK N ROLL’S BLACK CREATORS are constantly mocked and pushed out by white folk for supposedly not belonging (by basis of not being white). Go fuck yourself, you’re doing the same tired shit and acting righteous on top of it (no, you’re just like the rest of the mainstream racists in the scene- see black folk in “your clothes” listening to “your music” and in “your scene” and then you act like racist shits).
White people within the rock n roll scene mocking black people and PoC for showing up to the music they love and dressing how they like is part of white Afro Punk even has to exist.
But there’s no history or precident…
That’s not true. Having Punk roots, there’s a ton of cultural exchange that was happening between punks and hip-hoppers in the 70′s. Black Punks and White B-Boys were fairly commonplace until commercialization of those two scenes intentionally divided it along racial line.
If you need more proof, there is a certain song you’re likely to hear play at some ‘old-school’ Goth nights.
This song [Blondie’s Rapture], in case you didn’t know, is talking about the cultural exchange that was happening between the Punk/New Wave scene and the Hip-Hop scene in New York in the late 70′s and early 80′s. Punks were literally escorted to hip-hop shows in the South Bronx, and those same Hip-Hoppers were coming down to Punk / New Wave shows in Manhattan.
I hope to gods Rock N Roll mainstream becomes “ghetto” AKA BLACK again, maybe then it’ll get some damn soul. Also shit ton of racist ass white people will hop onto something else and leave a less aggressively racist environment for black people (and all PoC) within the RnR community at large.
But I mean really:
Hip Hop, Rock, And Punk will do juuuuust fine without the fuckwads such as you and yours. (◠‿◠✿) (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Are you saying that we’re finally getting rock and roll back?
It’s about damn time!
Well worth the commentary.
This short sleeve button up, collard, polka dot black dress was made by the fashion gods just for me. It’s perfect. 😍
we don’t need to “teach girls to say no”, we need to teach boys to take “no” for an answer so that girls who learn to say no, who already say no, who’ve been saying no can feel like it’s even a viable option that’ll have an effect in the first place

Ummm…I am so VERY into this right now!
But Black people in period or fantasy settings totally makes the stories unreal.
Also holy shit I love these.
How come I don’t run across this stuff regularly?
Because of racism and the retroactive erasure of POC in Medieval Europe. Pretty much the same reason you almost never see these works of art either unless you’re already looking for them:
im just so angry for no reason but in reality there is a reason for everything
