"In the end, Hollywood forced Dorothy Dandridge to embody one of the stereotypes she so loathed: the tragic mulatto, a woman accepted in some ways by both the black and white communities but rejected in other, crucial, heartbreaking ways. The white community loved her “white” beauty and the specter of her sexuality, but refused to allow her to actually act on that sexuality."~ Anne Helen Petersen

Quote
"For as long as there’s been a mainstream feminist movement, there have been corporations eager to capitalize on women’s desire for empowerment. And simply saying men and women should be treated equally isn’t the slightest bit risky in an era when the economy demands that nearly all women work outside the home and the biggest pop stars in America embrace the term feminist. But empowerment conferences are less a product of this friendly brand of modern feminism than they are the result of changing media business models and the rise of superficial corporate do-gooderism. Consumers are so wary of traditional advertising that one of the only ways for brands to make an end-run around skepticism is to claim, “Hey, we’re doing some good here.” As Unilever has learned with all the free press its “body-positive” Dove ads have gotten, women’s empowerment is a great theme for conscientious advertising — Bitch Magazine co-founder Andi Zeisler calls it “empowertising.” You-go-girl ads appeal to a broad demographic, but unlike championing, say, stricter environmental regulation, they put the onus for change on women themselves, not corporations or society."

YESSS MAMA

It deeply saddens me that people still need to protect themselves from such hateful people by threatening violence. Hatred just leads to more violence upon violence. Less hate, more love needed in this world.

The fucking KKK came up to her door, in a world where white cops
COPS
can gun down teens just walking down the street
and you think the problem is how SHE acted, without firing a single bullet, in her OWN HOME
wow… you desperately need to check out the ferguson tag, because you’re expecting people to play nice with those who have been murdering them since forever, and that’s fucked

Did pokemeidareu just call a black woman holding a weapon while answering her door to an established terrorist group devoted to the murder of black people as her “fighting hate with hate”????????

Take note, black folk: The KU KLUX KLAN- a white TERRORIST organization- can literally knock on your fucking door with the intention of doing you harm and some ignorant fucktwit will STILL think you’re in the wrong if you even HINT at defending yourself with a weapon.Second amendment ain’t for us, I tell ya."Less hate, more love". Yea well if she shows less hate to the Klan, there’s a strong chance she and her children will end up dead in their own home.Tell the KKK to fuck right off a cliff and then maybe she wouldn’t need to stand at her door “threatening violence”.

What the fuck is she supposed to do? Pray for their souls while they lynch her?

It’s pathological.  Even white terrorist organizations will always have white people that will defend them and pain their victims as “just as bad” because black people dare to defend their homes and lives. 
Ain’t that some shit?
