so suddenly marrying outside my race makes me less black? i dont think so.

i have a husband who is currently living in another continent for the next year. so can you imagine when i give birth to our daughter and i go into stores by myself, i will automatically get viewed as a young single mother, lets not forget that ill be 22 right after my daughter arrives and happily married over a year with a full time career. but nope. i can have a baby hanging off my hips and i will get stereotyped like any other black woman. people at the register expecting me to pull out my food stamps and WIC information because the news is falsely representing black americans. or shoot since my daughter may not match my skin tone i may just be her nanny to some people!

i dont care who you are married to nor what color you are, you can still speak up about the disrespect that black americans, especially males, are facing today. my husband is white but do you forget that my father is black? my 30 year old brother? my 9 year old brother? my cousin? my grandpa? my nephew?my uncle? that last big news happened in St Louis where my brother currently lives. that could of been my brother on the street. 

you dating interracially does not define who you are or what you can stand for. its just one piece of a bigger picture. do not forget that.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

1. Eric Garner executed on July 17th, 2014. Put in illegal choke hold and strangled by the NYPD

2. Pregnant lady gets put in an illegal chokehold by an NYPD officer for “illegally grilling” while her seven year old daughter watches July 27th, 2014

3. NYPD enters wrong house and drags a naked woman across the floor, then pepper sprays her four year old grandson August 2nd, 2014.

4. Man shot and killed by police for holding a toy gun in a Walmart, Dayton, Ohio - August 6th, 2014

5. Unarmed Black teen shot ten times by the Ferguson Police while walking home with his friend from the convenience store - August 9th, 2014

Since July 17th there has been five reported occurrences exemplifying the police and American justice system’s lack of reverence for Black life. These are the five stories that were able to attract at least minimal attention. Who knows what is going on out there covered up (like the Ferguson police is trying to do with Mike Brown’s murder), unrecorded, and unknown. In the past 23 days the police have perpetrated the humiliation, degradation, and murdering of Black dignity,souls, and people. Knowledge is power. Do not rely on mainstream media to give you the full/accurate story. They will always be complicit in the devaluing of Black life because Blackness has been criminalized in America. Please spread these stories and add any more that you know of under the hashtag #badges are the new hoods. We need to start documenting, and spreading information. They will try to silence us as they did to Ramsey Orta, and Alba Lekaj, the people who filmed the NYPD harasing and murdering Eric Garner. But united we can make a difference.  Knowledge is power. Stay woke Black America, Stay woke.

this happened in the past 23 days
