Black girls are beautiful

yin-meets-yang:

Natural hair, curly hair, permed hair, dark skinned, brown skinned, light skinned, tall, short, big, small, curvy, thin, 25% or 100% black, our girls are beautiful.

The first female African-American to reach outer space, Mae Jemison, would specifically cite Nichols’ influence upon her career choice (Jemison appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1993, a year after she became the first African-American woman in space) (x)

This white sasquatch needs to read a history book. Your people stole this land from Native Americans, this land is Native land and it will always be. You have the audacity to complain about the existence of black Americans in America when your people brought them here because whites were too fucking lazy to do their own labor. Then you have the audacity to call Black Americans lazy. 

You don’t own America, you never will.

Go back to fucking Europe.

This is from a Vice’s documentary called The KKK vs. the Crips vs. Memphis City Council . Huge trigger warning, lots of white ignorance and narcissism. 

For the people who claim racism no longer exists, this was documented in 2013. 

2013.

[Image Description: The cartoon child depicted asks their mother: “Momma how come Daddy never cooks or cleans?”

The mother responds: “The division of labour which allows for men like your father to generate an excess of his labour which is assigned a higher capital than ours, despite its necessity and importance, thus allowing him a more privileged social status and to maintain this division of labour. This is a root of the patriarchy.”]

Based on this (x). Conclusion: they’re still fuckers. 

Or maybe daddy works all week to provide us money for food and clothes

Because daddy’s labour is arbitrarily placed at a higher value and the work he does all week is no more important or legitimate than domestic labour. The capital value of the same relative labour is dependent on the gender of the person its performed by, and the capital values of different, specific kinds of labour, are dependent on the gender of the person who usually performs them in a society. The work easily available to women is priced cheap or free, and the work women have to struggle harder to get is still worth less capital than that same work when performed by men. 

In short, daddy gets to choose what he gets to work on, and the job he gets to choose can easily generate more than enough money to feed and shelter more than one person.  In this scenario, women still have to do work, but are often forced to depend on others to support them, let alone able to consider supporting others with their labour. 

In some cases, men might actually prefer their wives to do even less in terms of domestic labour, because it will be a symbol of conspicuous leisure, which is the mark of status. Women doing no work at all only happens if daddy has so much money and power that he wants to show it to people by how he can support a family with even less work on their part.

A society directing women to be dependent on men, who like their women that way, is definitively a patriarchy, and the division of labour between men and women continues to reinforce gender inequality even today. 

Hopefully you can see more of the repercussions of EXACTLY WHAT WAS IMPLIED IN THE ORIGINAL POST now.
