    WTF? I refuse to believe this was anything other than trolling.

    One day someone will have to look into why white men are prone to doing mass shootings.

    Decided not to keep silent when a eurocentric beauty standard is bigged up, even if the person is well intentioned. Today my white Portugese flatmate and I were talking:-

    Flatmate - would you like to see a picture of my niece
    Me (in my head) sure why not?
    Flatmate - She is so beautiful
    Me (in my head, expecting a photo of a cute little child or something)
    Flatmate - She is 25, she has beautiful blonde hair, lovely blue eyes, and such wonderful pale skin.
    Me (in my head, she sounds sick) 'Well being blonde with pale skin does not sound beautiful to me. I think ladies with dark hair, brown eyes and dark skin are better looking (I know foot in mouth syndrome but its my house I can say what I please, I'm the landlady)
    Flat mate - (gives deer in headlight look, obviously no one has ever given the blonde, blue eyed pale skin last place in the looks treatment before)
    Flat mate - responds sheepishly '"Maybe because she is my niece"
    Me (in my head, no maybe because you white people need to stop giving the Nordic look first prize)
    Flatmate - shows me pics of blonde niece and other nieces who are brunettes, dark eyed and less pale
    Me - "They all look like lovely girls, they are ALL beautiful"

    "Why I yelled at the Kara Walker Exhibit"

    I get the author's reaction. I felt the same way when some white folks said they loved Dave Chapelle. But this should be on the exhibit organizer's though for not properly explaining what the sculpture is about.

    I don't think the organizers offering an explanation would have helped. Bottom line is that this is our history and not their history. They don't get it. They don't live in our black skin 24 hours a day. That sculpture is just a thing to them... a thing with a funny big butt and large breasts. They don't see how the Black female body has been mistreated, used, objectified and appropriated for hundreds of years.

    That's why we need to get over white people. We should live our lives not needing anything (mental/emotionally) from white people. Our history is our truth. I know the truth. I can't be bothered if they don't get. I don't need their validation.
