"Alternative R&B must die" FKA Twigs speaks out on racism in the music industry through genre-specifying:

"When I first released music and no one knew what I looked like, I would read comments like: ‘I’ve never heard anything like this before, it’s not in a genre,’” she continued. “And then my picture came out six months later, now she’s an R&B singer. I share certain sonic threads with classical music; my song “Preface” is like a hymn. So let’s talk about that. If I was white and blonde and said I went to church all the time, you’d be talking about the ‘choral aspect’. But you’re not talking about that because I’m a mixed-race girl from south London."

Mz 007- Important 

I’ve listened to this at least 10 times since reading about it on For Harriet yesterday. 

I’m so here for a fat black woman declaring herself important, exuding self confidence, and owning her truth.

Here for this movement!  

this is hella catchy

White Marijuana Millionaires.

curvesincolor:

Since Colorado voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use in January, that vote has created more then 20 white marijuana millionaires who the Government has allowed to store their millions in U.S. Banks. 

Keep in mind that there are more then 100,000 black and latino people who are in American prisons for the same simple possession and intend to sell marijuana. 

BUT THEY MAKING WHITE BOYS MILLIONAIRES FOR COMMITTING THE SAME ACT!

its really important for men to stand up to other men who say terrible and sexist shit

because sexist men dont listen to what women have to say

literally the most important thing men can do if they want to call themselves feminist allies

if the creator has to say “yeah this one vague line was refering to this character being gay” it doesnt count as representation. if it’s a punchline at the end of the movie, it doesn’t count as representation. if the writer announces it outside the work but never in the work it doesnt fucking count as representation
