Yvette Nicole Brown Responds to the NY Times’s portrayal of Shonda Rhimes as an “Angry Black Woman”

image

Alessandra Stanley, the writer of that article. Surprised? Nope.

Can we fuckingg stop white women from talking about black women in their shitty articles. I swear the pathological white-centredness of feminists it getting boring as fuck. That constant need to simplify the complex, artistic and sophisticated minds of black women to a singular racist trope is demeaning. White sociopathy is what it is, white women have to be the only ones who are successful, they are so threatened by us that they feel the need to put us down and in getting ducking sick of it. They’re so used to being celebrated for mediocrity that when women like Viola Davis and Shonda Rhimes are changing the game and people are realising that whiteness celebrates mediocrity they must bring us down. Ugh I’m so annoyed.

Sigh…

In an effort to keep it simple, I’ll say this: 

Black women birthed this nation, standing up, on our own two feet, catching each child with our own two hands. We’ve always stood alone. We’ve spent years cradling the responsibilities of the world, so much history can be traced back to our shoulders, our minds, our hearts, our ideas. We are always assumed to be on our backs, sitting on our fat asses collecting undeserved welfare from the state. We are called lazy, angry and unappreciative, yet when our men are killed we stand in solidarity, sometimes for the same men that taunt and alienate us for being exactly what we are, while simultaneously glorifying women who have what we have excluding one thing that we don’t—-come on, y’all know the color. We are an endlessly overlooked, consistently forgotten, unabashedly bashed minority group in this country and we continue to be. Our accomplishments are fettered by others increased need to oppress our power. We’re so fucking magical. We’re so fucking beautiful. We’re so fucking different. We. birthed. this. nation. They have to hold us down, because they know our power. They know are ability. They know we’re rising. And they’re fucking scared. 

The first rule of taking down your most powerful opponent is discrediting them. Imagine discrediting a group for centuries and still watching them climb to the top, time and time again. That shit is infuriating. They’re losing their footing, their confused and afraid. They are beginning to face the harsh reality that they aren’t fucking stopping us. And what do the weak resort to when they’re all out of ammunition? Name calling. Take this as a sign, my fellow beautiful Black Women: we are still beating them at a game we didn’t even want to play.

LOL man.

never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,

Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?

because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.

i have heard of precisely zero non-european explorers ever in my life, and that fucking sucks. this exhibit is amazing and i need to learn more.

That boat is a frickin aircraft carrier comparatively. Holy crap. And no. Never heard a peep.

Zhenghe went to over 40 countries in Asia and Africa and probably went even further, but I didn’t encounter that in history books before. He brought gifts from China to every country he went to and everyone loved him. It was just like “Hey, I’m here with a water-helicarrier and a gift,” and the kings of every country were lilke “holy shit son well here have a giraffe.” There are paintings depicting him leading a giraffe as well. Check him out guys, he’s really cool

That is so awesome. Fuck western history. This is the real shit.

2 white construction workers who were witnesses to Mike Brown’s murder have stepped forward to say that Mike Brown was murdered with his hands up. They fear losing their jobs.

The sad reality is that many women BELIEVE the abusive, sexist partner’s messages and gaslighting and they tell themselves they must be overreacting, they must be crazy, and that it’s not worth making a big deal out of, let alone breaking up with him. But we deserve better.

You hear all these “you’re not a real fan unless” and it lists a hundred things, but I met a dude today who saw my Deadpool pin and asked what my favorite story arc was, and I explained that while I loved Deadpool, I was new to Marvel (I only really got into it a year and a half ago) and hadn’t been able to find a lot of the comics. Instead of making a face or a derogatory comment, he just offered to send me all the stuff he had. That is a true fan.
