Yo. I'm Tayla. I just turned 20 on May 13th. I'm a junior in college in New Jersey; U.S. I procrastinate a lot--it's pretty sad. I'm pretty reserved at times and that's probably my downfall. I love talking to people and seeing people happy. I love natural hair & the natural beauty that things and people possess. I love music and good books and animals. I admire people who are musically inclined. I'm 87.3% sure I want to be an elementary school teacher. Click on "Tootsier0ll" to see me and random things I've posted and stuff.

 

On being “colorblind”

"It does no person of color any justice to feel invisible by peers, especially in the face of a society that leaves no room to forget for a second what the color of their skin is."

today, my school hosted an exhibit for suicide awareness day. the exhibit included 1,100 backpacks in representation of the number of lives that are lost to mental illness each year on college campuses. many of these backpacks were donated by the families that lost loved ones and had their stories attached. i’m so proud of my school for bringing attention to such a serious issue.

how people miss the racial commentary of this song is still so astounding to me. it’s so clearly a fuck white beauty standards song.

most white people so drunk off whiteness, they don’t even get it.

who knew though…… by 2014, white people would “discover” twerking and  convince themselves that jennifer lopez and other white bitches made booty a good thing to have. lol.

they still can’t admit that black women are beautiful. they will just keep magic wand selecting all of our features as beautiful, but not beautiful on us.

How many people paid attention to this part of the video

ok that shit was obvious, like he even says ” Cosmo says you’re fat, well I aint down with that”

they only hear a black man hollering about butts and find it hilarious and dont really listen to anything else

it’s not your job to entertain him by sending him nudes

it’s not your job to satisfy him sexually because he’s horny

you are not required to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don’t want to do

don’t be scared of “loosing him”

he most likely wasn’t anything worth keeping

jacking off before going to sleep is truly hit or miss because you either fall right to sleep or you sit in your bed for 20-30 minutes like

This is an absolutely heartbreaking case of police brutality. A 22 year old black man with down syndrome was beaten by the police for the bulge in his pants. That bulge turned out to be his colostomy bag. They ripped the bag off his body. This was an unprovoked attack. No one is safe out here.

Reblogging with updated link. The old one was dead.

Remember the case of 22 year old Gilberto Powell.

From a medical perspective this is horrifying, beyond the brutality he could’ve died from infection from a leak or trauma to his stoma.
