Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
This is why this is important.
A day after the Boston marathon bombing,
and a day after Salah Barhoum,
a Moroccan track runner
found his face plastered on newspapers
for “seeming suspicious”
my brother with all the fury
his little body could contain
"I swear if they blame us again,
I’m moving to Australia”
Favorite thing in the world.
İmanımız mı yok,yoksa imkanımız mı?!
"Ey Rabbim! Beni ve soyumdan gelecekleri namazını dosdoğru kılanlardan eyle! Ey Rabbimiz! duamı kabul et!
SubhanAllah what’s our excuse??
May Allah bless him and grant him Jennah Ferdoz.
