Racial bias in America: from higher suspension rates in preschool, to disproportionate rates of capital punishment, to everything in between, structures of authority routinely allow anti-Black racial bias to color the “facts”, and warp the narrative. And frequently (whether unintentional or otherwise) the police and the media often work together to further criminalize innocent Black victims

1Criminalizing Blackness in America

2. 14-year-old Tremaine McMillian attacked and choked by police, literally while holding a puppy…because McMillian made them “feel threatened” and gave them “dehumanizing stares

3. Author and CNN contributor keithboykin: how the AP slandered Renisha McBride even in death

4.  The Associated Press: when can skin color alone determine who is and who isn’t a looter? (hint: don’t be Black)

This implicit racial bias does not magically stop at innocuous events like the VMAs, or in Hollywood. So far, it doesn’t ever turn off. There are two Americas and racial bias is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe

DO HER HAIR 😤😤😤

I hate comments like this. Blue Ivy is not even 3 years old yet and people are telling her to do her hair. is she suppose to have a weave or straighten it? no. her parents are embracing her natural hair and she looks adorable regardless of how her hair looks. she is a child!!!

Preach

Since when the fuck is an Afro not done? Y’all niggas better chill on that child’s hair.

you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

Misee Harris reveals the racism of Target’s “Our Generation Dolls.”

it’s definitely problematic and biased that Our Generation does not have (as far as I am aware) any sort of PoC doll in one of the ‘deluxe’ sets like Sidney Lee is shown here. that said… at my local Target and online, there’s a price difference of about USD$10 between the ‘deluxe’ sets w/accessories & the basic dolls like Abrianna. that said, this is not the first video I’ve seen from someone who says that the deluxe & basic dolls are about the same price, so there may be some slight regional variation for in-store pricing…. which would seem weird, but I guess it’s possible?

(Our Generation is made by Battat exclusively for Target)

Why Avatar the last Airbender and Legend of Korra deserves cred for pushing boundaries on stereotypes

the-fullmetal-avatar:

One thing I absolutely love about Avatar the last Airbender and Legend of Korra is that they have really proved themselves worthy of some serious cred for going outside of stereotypes and showing us developed characters who are more than their gender, physicality, background, appearance etc.
