"Well if black people wouldn’t dress and act like thugs maybe they wouldnt get treated as such!"
My retail and sales employees will understand right away.
This was me two days ago
Don’t hate on me
Ask your doctor if Hot Messtra is right for you…
I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"
Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.
My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.
I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.
Boo for people who need to be dicks to black cosplayers.
And yay for Jay Justice for being amazing and awesome.
"Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway."
why do whites who derail conversations about racial profiling by stating that they have been profiled for having tattoos, ”dreads”, etc not realize that these things are stigmatized cos of their association with a racist view of blackness?

Woman crush every god damn day
It’s because white cis women are the only women allowed enough nuance of personality to afford not to perform femininity to the high degree that women of color or trans women have to in order to be respected. That’s why it’s cute and Feminist! if white cis girls have hairy legs while Mexican girls are made fun of for having lip hair
