It’s become somewhat apparent by the notes on this post that some people aren’t getting that the point is, “These racial categories didn’t exist yet, but these figures from history have still been assigned modern racial labels. Maybe we should question these racial labels and assumptions we make about history.”

Which is kind of incidentally also the point of medievalpoc, in part.

Always Questioning.

She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful. And let’s not forget that that wasn’t just Annalise taking it off: It was Davis, too—Davis, who remains brave in a world where a New York Times critic can get away with calling her ‘less classically beautiful.’x

Love and Appreciate This Show.

Black woman, you carry too heavy a burden
Come, stay with me
Come, rest a while
Rest your weary bones
And let sleep nourish your battered soul

STOP INTERNALIZED MISOGYNY 2K14

porn4smartgirls:

STOP trying to prove that you’re not “slutty” like other girls and that’s why you deserve respect from boys

ALL girls deserve respect and their sex lives and sexual histories have absolutely NOTHING to do with the level of respect they deserve

STOP trying to set yourself apart from other girls, we are all in this together and we NEED to support each other

Fucking Right.
