I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime.

Can we get into the fierceness of these photos? What you don’t know is that Coco wasn’t feeling well yesterday. But she was still able to channel her inner Sasha Fierce for this photo shoot! Coco is wearing the Light Rail Strap Bandeau + Leggings. Coming soon in ALL sizes.

Spike Lee draws comparisons from the epic murder scene of a Radio Raheem in DO THE RIGHT THING and the real life incident of Eric Garner.

If you are 30 or older you can remember a time when Black women butts were ridiculed. White people called anyone with a butt fat. It’s one of the reasons why Sir Mix-A-Lot made the song, “Baby Got Back” to honor Black women who have big butts. I HATE seeing Kim Kardashian. The sight of her makes me literally shake my head in disgust. So after a few hundred years of making fun of the curves of many Afrikan women now it’s time to honor the Black woman’s curves but through non-Black women who have ass implants and injections? Black entertainers in the past had to play down their butt sizes to fit the European standard of beauty only to see someone like Jennifer Lopez get props for having a butt. *and her butt wasn’t all that but I guess when compared to the average European or non-Black Latina I guess it’s ‘big’*…. Non-Black women look down on Black women yet most of them try to dance like Black women, dress like Black women, sing like Black women, and emulate many of the natural physical traits of a Black woman like her lips, curves, and skin complexion. What’s sad is they get PROPS when they artistically copy Black women or have Black features on a non-Black face or body. I’m literally SICK of seeing non-Black women STEAL from Black women and get LOVE for being a immolating thief.
