“Nothing feels like my child singing ‘mummy’,nothing feels like when I look my husband in the eyes, nothing feels like when I’m respected, when I get on the stage and I see I’m changing peoples lives.” - Beyoncé
In a gender-equal world, Beyoncé could strut her stuff freely because she wouldn’t have to prove her intelligence, even if she was shimmying in a tight-fitting dress. Men have the liberty of shaking their hips without their intelligence being questioned, but women don’t. — Elizabeth Plank, Beyonce doesn’t have to choose between her sexuality and feminism (via micdotcom)
Americans be like: “Police brutality is so wro….squirrel! “
Protect Blue Ivy from anti-blackness at all costs.
cops expect us to believe the dumbest shit
I’m supposed to believe a black kid ran up to a police officer and tried to take their gun?
like last year I was supposed to believe a handcuffed black man shot himself in the head in the back of a police car?
Miles Davis covered in blood after an altercation with police.
"Altercation" sounds so polite, like it was a mutual thing and not one man getting assaulted by the police. Miles got beat up by the police.
The cops assaulted Miles because he was black. He was standing outside Birdland where he just performed and was taking a break. His name was on the marquee. They saw him escort a white female friend from the club into a taxi and then they approached him after as he was taking a smoke break. The cops told him to “move on”. Miles said he was playing at the club and was on break. They weren’t hearing any of that. One cop then punched him in the stomach, while another one cracked him on the head with a nightstick. That’s why he’s covered in blood. He was a victim of police brutality.
So being alive while being black = weapon
