African-Americans made up 42 percent of stops on the New Jersey turnpike, yet others claim we are being whiny when we bring up past and current discrimination.
I know how it feels to proclaim that “black lives matter” and have someone have the audacity to claim that “all lives matter,” as though I was implying they did not.
Only because to me rejection is one of those situations that leaves you open to more possibilities.
I know a lot of people have a hard time dealing with rejection, but for me rejection has always been, you know, it’s saving my time, it’s saving my energy. I don’t believe in trying to explain to a man why I am desirable as a black woman. It has never really made any sense to me, and it is what it is. Right, because, and I can admit this, even though it’s really problematic: There was a time where I was guilty of putting racial preferences in my profile. Now we can have a whole conversation about Latino and how there are white Latinos, there are black Latinos, there are Asian Latinos, but that’s what I put in my profile, so we’re just going to be honest, okay?
And I know for me, I can be honest about it now, I didn’t think about it like this back then, I think for me, having the approval of a white man made me feel good.Does this video remind you of any of your dating experiences?With Love, The Editors at Everyday Feminism Hey guys, it’s Kat and it’s time for your weekly dose of True Tea.And to me, you have to really think about why you have these preferences.Whenever I ask someone, whenever I see someone who has racial preferences and I ask them why, when you ask somebody why they have these preferences, usually you’ll get an answer and that answer will usually reveal that these racial preferences are actually quite racist.Now this is not to say that minorities cannot be prejudiced or practice discriminatory behaviors because they definitely can and have done so.Bigotry, the stubborn intolerance of any race, creed, belief or opinion different from one’s own, can be practiced by any race.I know how it feels to realize that our race makes up 38 percent of arrests for violent crimes even though we are only 12 percent of the population.I know exactly how it feels to be pulled over just because you are black.Because I have seen many posts on Tumblr saying that you’re racist if you don’t like a race.Then on the other side, I’ve seen posts on Tumblr saying that you aren’t because it’s just a preference. I’m a black girl, obviously, and when someone tells me that they’re not interested in black girls, I’m really not that upset about it.
