This is actually true. Sia wrote the song and e-mailed it to Katy Perry but she never read her e-mails. So she sent it to Rihanna, who didn’t pay the fee to keep the song. Finally when she sent the song to Beyoncé, she immediately took it. 

When Katy Perry heard the song, she asked why Sia hadn’t sent it to her first… Sia replied: Check your e-mail.

Here is a difference. Black/Brown/Yellow face is used to humiliate. White face is packaged in a bottle, marketed as a key for success and labelled Fair and Lovely. And it sells.

*Unarmed Black person gets killed by police*
“It’s not about race they had to have done something to deserve it.”

*Black person gets a job or goes to a college*
“This is obviously about race there is nothing they could have done to deserve it.”

Women with spinal cord injuries report being denied birth control by their doctors in a manner that suggests their sexual lives are over. Elle Becker, a paraplegic, [reported]: ‘About four days after I broke my back I asked my surgeon, “I don’t have my birth control pills with me. Is there something we can do about that?” He said “Well, you don’t need those anymore,” and walked out of my room.’

Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.

one of those types of black men that seem to be down for the struggle but spend a lot of time talking about what black women aren’t doing/being/saying/acting like. the kind that want to put you on some pedestal as a “queen” but the second you behave in a way that’s outside the parameters of their idea of black womanhood, you’re snatched off said pedestal and treated like shit. they’re really just agents in white supremacy, cloaked in ankhs and an obsession with ancient egyptian culture.

I believe black girls can’t go wrong with bright lipstick.  I’m a wetnwild and blackradiance girl cause I can’t afford to be a Mac girl. And plus I like to be flawless and affordable.
Are you a lipstick junkie?

I asked my ex, now good friend, if she would ever have an open relationship and she said, “No, I don’t think I could do that” then after a pause and a smile, “but what about love affair friendships?” She went on to describe an impenetrable fortress of female friendship, her own group of best mates who’d known each other since school and had supported and loved each other through almost all of their lifetimes. They sounded far more bonded to, and in love with one another, than their respective husbands. It struck me that we don’t have the language to reflect the diversity and breadth of connections we experience. Why is sex the thing we tend to define a relationship by, when in fact it can be simple casual fun without a deep emotional transaction? Why do we say “just friends” when, for some of us, a friendship goes deeper? Can we define a new currency of commitment that celebrates and values this? Instead of having multiple confusing interpretations of the same word, could we have different words? What if we viewed our relationships as a pyramid structure with our primary partner at the top and a host of lovers, friends, spiritual soul mates, colleagues, and acquaintances beneath that?
