Racism isn’t just ‘oh you’re black you can’t come in here, or sit here, or beat the shit out of them because off their skin tone. It’s when a black person comes in the room and you can tell white people feel a bit less safer or saying’ you’re pretty for a black girl’
and if any of you white people respond with “wait but I didn’t do that. that was in the past”
i need you to check your privilege
and then drink bleach if you think your hands aren’t dirty
Guilt doesn’t transfer from generation to generation. I am not magically accountable for something my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather MIGHT have done. Also;
>social justice blogger
>telling people to kill themselves
I forgot a thing
>thinks America is the only country in the whole wide world
Yes, white people are dicks to everyone else but if you look at history as a whole, it is just a lot of people being dicks to other people. Not just white people either.
AND, howtobeterrell, were YOU on that boat? any boat? on the water, ever in your lifetime?
give me a fucking break…
racism goes both ways…
… Mainly white people. You need to take a seat and open a REAL history book that tells you about white people and the natives, white people and asians, white people and African-Americans, white people and any other race.
And, what would make you suggest that he’s never been on any boat “on the water, ever in [his] lifetime?” ….
And also, I think it’s important to note that I don’t need to have been present on the slave ships to have to deal with ignorant ass white people.
As you talk about racism going both ways, you potentially said something that is the result of stereotyping.
And I think that, as a white person, you probably shouldn’t speak on racism. I don’t even think you understand what racism is. None of us are suggesting we’re superior to whites. But I have DEFINITELY had whites TELL ME.. TO MY FACE.. that they were superior to me because of their skin tone. So shut that shit up immediately. I don’t know a single nigga that would suggest blacks are superior to whites. I don’t know a single nigga that wakes up in the morning like “You know what? My pigmented skin makes me so much better than these white people.” But I sure as hell know at least a handful of white people that think that way.
Talkin’ about white people dealing with racism…
No. What y’all deal with is the inability to face the reality of the world.
Smh. White people being targeted by racism…
That’s a joke.
Jews had it worse…just thought I should throw that out there. kbye
Because we’re sitting here having a “WHO DID WHITES TREAT WORSE” competition, right?
What the fuck.
|BADU:||How do you choose chicks from backstage?
|LAMAR:||How do I choose chicks from backstage?
|BADU:||Yeah, what is the protocol?
|LAMAR:||I try not to. [laughs] I’m too scared. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m probably the most scared person when it comes to that because I’m so caught up in the act of sex, of something going crazy, going out of my control. I’m too paranoid.
|BADU:||[laughs] So you just pass?
|LAMAR:||I’ve got to because I’ve seen a situation where it got totally out of hand, where something seemed so innocent, and now this person has got allegations on them. It spooked me. This was before my career really started, though—before any “Kendrick Lamar.” And that right there? It changed my whole perception about certain things. I’ll always keep that in the back of my head.
|BADU:||So who is your asshole-checker?
|LAMAR:||Who is my what?
|BADU:||Your asshole-checker—the person in your crew or your family who let’s you know if you’re being a asshole.
|LAMAR:||I have two, actually. [both laugh] But the main one is a friend of mine—a lady friend who has known me since high school. She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an asshole, or also if I’m doin’ something positive—but more so when I’m out of my element.
|BADU:||What’s your favorite cereal?
|LAMAR:||Fruity Pebbles. When people ask for my rider, they think I’m crazy: Fruity Pebbles, baked chicken, bottle of Hennessy, and some Polo socks.
|BADU:||What do you, as a man, envy about what it means to be a woman?
|LAMAR:||There’s just a certain knowledge instilled in a woman. There are these things that women have that men just can’t grasp: the understanding of love; the understanding of being; having a certain type of care in your heart and knowing when to be compassionate; knowing how to be a confidante…
|BADU:||That’s a good perspective. Something I envy that men have is that ability to grow a goatee. I think that’d be really hot on me.
"I fell in love with the devil, but I sure didn’t know no better."
all I want is one bestfriend that I can do everything with go shopping, go on cute little friend dates, starbucks trips, watch a movie with, text all day, sleepover and even more. I just want one good friend not a billion fake ones.
"Once someone’s hurt you, it’s harder to relax around them, harder to think of them as safe to love. But it doesn’t stop you from wanting them."
"It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit."
