The bomb is dropped

The kittens sort of soften the blow.

this is the shittiest post ever. please unfollow me if you agree with this post also shame on OP for using cute kittens for this garbage post

not sure what it is exactly that makes this post so shitty? Because it’s promoting actual equality? instead of saying that you can call everyone else shit because you are part of an oppressed party you can say you are equal to them doesn’t exactly sound like a shitty idea to me.

BOOM. So many people on this website need to read this twice, let it sink in and then read it again.

I am hanging this post up on my fucking wall

Tee shirts anyone?

while ALL of this is true, please dont let it belittle the actual struggles of whatever side it is that isnt your own.  i beg of you.  one person’s trouble may not ‘outweigh’ anothers, parse. but the goal should not be to invalidate someone else’s hurt because “i hurt too, so you should get over yourself.”  no.  just like a guys probably has no idea what its like to have period cramps and a girl probably doesnt know the faintest about how much it sucks to get kicked in the nuts — we ALL hurt. and its ALL important.

» PLEASE dont use this kind of thing as “AMMO” against the “opposing side” « 

because if you do, we’re still falling into the trap of “us” verses “them”, when its “all of us” verses “lack of knowledge/understanding”

we humans ARE different.  but its those differences that give us the whole array of color in the world’s palette, not just a boring monochromatic mess. we need each other for the complete picture. real equality recognizes our strengths, bonds us and uplifts without pigeon-holing.  

its doesnt just bicker and drag everyone down into the gutters just to ‘level the playing field’. this is just the other side of the coin to what you yer saying dont want.

How many of you have heard Latasha Harlins?
*everyone is silent*

She was killed by Korean store owner Soon Ja Du, which set off the LA Riots. Ice Cube did a song about her called Black Korea, predicting that riot in fact. Some of us know. And no, I didn’t have to look her up. I remember. I read the Final Call.

She was murdered over a damn bottle of orange juice that store owner thought she was going to steal. There were eye witnesses and security camera footage.
The store owner still got no jail time! 
It’s not just an inconvenience to be followed around the store. You can be murdered if the store clerk decides to stand their ground.  If you’ve been followed around a store before, let Harlins tragedy serve as a reminder of why you shouldn’t go back.
Don’t spend money where you are not welcomed!

huh.  this coulda been me.  i was at a pizza joint the other night. i picked up an ice cream bar out of the deep-freezer, trying to decided if i was gonna get that along with the slice i came there for.  but i put it back deciding upon 2 slices instead. apparently the owner didnt see me put the ice cream back (or something) and came at me like a mad-woman, saying i stole the ice cream and that she had witnesses.
i was scared as fuck because i knew i was innocent and she was SO fucking insistent that i stole.  with a easy, level tone, i offered to empty my bag to prove my innocence but she kept saying “yes.  you stole the ice cream and put it in your bag”, fussing at me to “calm down”, even though i was putting up no resistance and OFFERED TO CLEAR MY NAME ON THE SPOT…
as discouraging and backwards as it sounds, i’m really glad i wasnt alone.  two of my white dude friends were with me, but didnt see the inital accusation.  they turned around after ordering and asked if there was a problem…her demeanor completely changed and she “let me go”.

and this is philly.  police shoot pizza men for knocking on doors, just `cause.  if feel like i got off lucky…

Nicki Minaj speaking the truth on twitter about racism (7/23/14)

Gimmie a break. Everyone can succeed if they work hard.

u would say that because your white

How did I know you would say that. Nikki is black and she makes more than me. #icomeinpeace

I see that went right over your head…Nicki’s post had nothing to do with money but it had all to do with the music industry today
what I’m saying, If I must address the rap world and the so call “beef” between iggy and nicki. Nicki Minaj has worked her ass off to make a name for herself in the industry, not only as a rapper but as a pop star too. She had songs like super bass and starships but also gave iconic verses like the monster feature, just to show people that she can survive in both lanes.
Not to mention that she also had 3 memorable mixtapes to back up her hip-hop credentials and now has to sit and watch as a mediocre rapper like iggy get praised as the new rap queen off of a few catchy choruses and plus the fact that she is white. I don’t know about you but I would be pissed if I didn’t get the credit I deserved too.
Iggy was born in Australia and grew up on a farm, dropped out of high school, moved to the U.S. when she was 16 and met a guy that was in his 20s that eventually hooked her up with modeling agencies. Dude was basically her sugar daddy because he paid for her first apartment and all her expenses. She comes out with a couple of mixtapes and an EP that non of which are critically acclaimed. Drops some singles from her album like Work, Change Your Life, and Bounce (non of which cracked the top 50 on billboard).
So then she releases Fancy, now Clear Channel (which owns 840 radio stations in the US) has a voting system that saves artist if their songs aren’t doing so well on the charts, it’s called the “on the verge” program. They voted to add Iggy’s song Fancy to every station and that song must get 150 spins from each one. (that’s how u hear the same song 4-5 times in one hour)
That made Iggy’s song get stuck in people’s heads so they eventually bought it and that’s how iggy became a huge star. Not by hard work, not by rap skills, not by good songs but by people feeling pity on her flopping singles so they had to save her career. Iggy is not seen as a rapper, she is in the same category as Pitbull, flo-rida and Macklemore, they all will have top tens and possibly #1s but are never looked at as great rappers.
Iggy has been putting out mediocre music that is catchy to garner the attention of the pop/mainstream world but has yet to release anything that makes her a great lyricist/rapper. Iggy’s complexion and body has gotten her more attention than her music. Now u can say that nicki uses her body to for attention too but she captures ur attention with her body and u stay captivated by her metaphors, flow, versatility, and the lyrics of her songs.
( notice how I didn’t mention Iggy’s fake accent when she raps or her horrendous album sales compared to Nicki’s first album… but that’s none of my business🐸☕️)
PS: If u don’t mind, when u address the queen her name is spelled N I C K I not Nikki. thanks

I forgot I responded like this lol… I was definitely in my feelings

READ HAA!!

Damn. I learned something new.

Tell these privileged basics, Queen Nick !!!

👀

Best retaliation, tbh. There’s no way to refute anything you said.

FUCK. You went in. True though..


Went in for da kill
