*white guy voice* you’re black but you’re not like BLAAACK ya know??
Translation: You’re not the ghetto image society has convinced me is the only identity Black people have.
Speak on it.
"and you like white things. i’m blacker than you!"
translation meaning: you’re light skin and have “good hair” so it’s okay that i’m attracted to you cause you’re not really like a “black girl” meaning darker complexion thick kinky hair.
I think the original translation is still anti-black, what do you mean, “you’re not the ghetto image society has convinced me is the ONLY identity black people have” meaning that image is bad? please, all images of black are beautiful.
"One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether it’s guilt, anger, love, loss or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go."
"Feeling unsure and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time."
Louis C.K. (via ladyofanaturalstate)
"In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again."
Don Draper, “The Wheel” (via herwakinglife)
