Anonymous asked: why is "hate breeds more hate" a bad thing to say?
Oh so many reasons.
1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.
It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.
It honestly is utterly amazing how God can bless you in such an unexpected or random way.
Still obsessing over this, thank sooooo much mommy😘💕🌻

How can I get down?
If you make a Civil Rights movie and white people like it, it wasn’t a great movie.
So what, all this, it never keeps you up at night?

I couldn’t appreciate her image until I was much older. When I was a kid she was just pretty and cool. But now I see what she represented. She had natural hair. Not a long bone straight weave down her back and her style was everything! She was called scary spice bc she was fierce!
