Daily reminder for all Black Women

msangelblackgoddess:

You are beautiful. You are powerful. You are intelligent. You deserve to be happy and fulfilled. You deserve to live a life filled with wonder and joy. Be proud. Demand what You deserve as a Black Woman. You have a right to Your desires and Your dreams. Surround Yourself with people who will support that.

Yes!

Protecting black girlhood is really important

Stop calling little girls thots

Stop calling little girls grown

Stop sexualizing little girls in anyway

Stop acting like that behavior is normal or cute

2006 Kathryn Johnston white Police Terrorism and Murder of a 92-Year Old Elder

On November 21, 2006, (3) white, apparently smallhat (aka white so-called jews named gary smith, gregg junnier, and arthur tesler) Atlanta police officers perjured themselves in a search warrant affidavit, violently broke into our 92-year old elder Johnston’s home (which they had mistaken for a drug dealer’s), murdered her in a barrage of 39 bullets, handcuffed her, and left her to bleed to death in her living room while they planted marijuana in her basement.  After realizing they were in the wrong house, they threatened an informant to lie about the whole thing so they could cover up their mistakes.  They were later convicted of their crimes and given light sentences.

Parents of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis Share Their Loss at the United Nations

Sitting in meetings in the United Nation’s ornate Wilson Palace by the shores of Lake Geneva in the shadow of the Alps seems an odd place to discuss racial discrimination in the United States.
But the problems of racial discrimination quickly hit home at an event earlier this week that hosted the parents of Travon Martin and Jordan Davis, two unarmed young black men killed by armed white men claiming to be acting in self-defense. Made all the more powerful as it came on the heels of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., their affecting and often harrowing testimony immediately erased the distance between Switzerland and the United States. It made the discrimination present and underscored the importance of the work being done here at the U.N.’s review of the U.S. record of racial discrimination.

YASSS!!! The world needs call the US out on its shit!!!

Sorry to interrupt the Robin Williams posts but I feel like this needs to be shared. The adult film star Christy Mack has been hospitalized after being severely beaten by former boyfriend/MMA Fighter, Jonathan Koppenhaver aka “War Machine”. She sustained injuries such as 18 broken bones in her face, broken nose, multiple teeth knocked out, a fractured rib, ruptured liver and no use of her left leg. He also cut most of her hair off with a dull knife and cut her several different times and attempted to rape her. Thank god she was able to get out of the house and have a neighbor help her and take her to the hospital. Christy said he has beaten her several times in the past but never this bad. On his twitter he referred to her as “his property and always will be” if that’s not the talk of a complete psycho I don’t know what is. This is never okay. Being someone who has seen and been around horrible situations like this my heart goes out to her and hopes she makes a speedy recovery. There is a fundraiser to help pay for her hospital/surgery/recovery expenses that you can go to here: https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/qcd5/christy-mack-s-medical-expense-fund

if there is one thing in this world that fuels a raging fire in me that could fucking make me feel like i could LITERALLY get arrested for man slaughter, its the abuse of women. signal boost the fuck out of this. countless women go through this every single day and no one does shit about it. im fucking sick and tired of seeing my sisters get beaten half to death because of men. im fucking sick and tired of men thinking that we are their property. im fucking sick and tired of being dehumanized and fucking objectified and silenced. and im sick and fucking tired of my sisters being murdered at the hands of misogynists. when will this end? its so hard to not feel fucking defeated sometimes.
