This is NOT the caption I want to see when I’m reading up on world news pertaining to Black Women.
Yes, you are stealing our subculture and erasing Black Women from it. Don’t pretend you’re innocent and blame less because you are fighting for your rights as well. You can still perpetuate white supremacy.

This entire article reads as “You shouldn’t be chastising us for our wrongs, but thanking us for them instead because we can help you and you need to be grateful for that…As we steal your culture. “

i saw BW tweeting this guy today, but i was too tired to investigate why. sweet mother of christ.

This so condescending.

Grosssss

The gay community would NEVER tolerate a straight ally telling them “You shouldn’t push away the very people who are trying to help you. And you should be grateful to us!” NEVER!

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.
