Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

Do you think ferguson will change anything for black people? Will it make a difference ? Do you think black people will ever be treated as equal as white people and racism will end?

Ferguson ain’t about changing things for Black people. It’s about holding one man accountable for his actions. 

Racism in America won’t end during our lifetime. We’re trying to position things so maybe it could start to fade out during the lifetime of our grandkids. 

This kind of ignorance takes generations to cease.

there’s always one person

allllll the way in the back

ready to raise their hand to say

that a certain woman is unacceptable

i don’t care if a black woman has bleached her skin or gotten a fake ass or if she’s any kind of problematic

black bodies, including all black women, are worthy of protection and respect

this is the screenshot for the anaconda parody

it rubs me the wrong way

i can’t find the link off facebook

but if you’ve seen it let me know what your thoughts are

Here’s the link to the YouTube video.

A white man made this.

And basically it took the video that divorced Black women’s bodies from the white gaze and put it right back in the white gaze. Not to mention the fetishizing and attack on Nicki Minaj for having a “fake ass”.

I wonder if people know how ass shots actually work.

This video was gross and insulting and just…ugh.

thank you for providing the link. the fact that it was made by a white man only confirms all of my issues with this video. through out the video, there are white men twisting their faces in disgust at her body. that, plus literally calling her a “whore” makes this video unbearable. i’m not here to debate what is or isn’t real on nicki or anything like that, because none of that matters. but making a video calling her dumb and essentially calling her worthless is beyond offensive.

thanks for your thoughts. i thought it was just me

until i found out some white dude made this

Do you Sisters imagine that there are no “White Dudes” behind Nicki Minaj’s career, branding, image, lyrics, promotion, management, legal representation, etc?  Is the original video also gross and disgusting?  Nicki, as far as I know has also attacked other female performers, right, like that “Stupid Hoe” song.

I’m not defending this parody, but I’m confused by the rationale for condemning it, and defending Minaj. 

All that shit looks like one big Minstrel Show to me, I can’t find any defensible elements, with Minaj or the parody, please enlighten me.

i think that you are reaching, because the criticism is not just a defense of nicki but by the fetishization of the black body by white men. any black woman treated this way would disgust me. at no point did anyone say “nicki has no flaws! she’s perfect! no one come for her”

it is unfortunate that your perspective is basically nicki doesn’t deserve to be respected because it seems like a minstrel show to you. it’s a very shallow interpretation of what is going on in this video

my current faith is the end result of a lot of growth and work

i have not always been in the condition that i am now

and i pray i never go back

but it’s just important that i point out that i’m not perfect and i have never been perfect

i’m growing every day

and always trying to find new ways to draw closer to Him

when i see a black woman spending time trying to break down other black women

i’m not sure who told white people that black women’s bodies exist only for their approval

but white flok got it really twisted for thinking their opinion on black women’s bodies is valid
