This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

“Trinidadian, Camille Alleyne, is a NASA Rocket Scientist and a great role model! An Aerospace Engineer by formal education, she’s worked in this capacity, managing space projects both at NASA and Department of Defense, for the last 16 years!”

My country woman yes!

If you are a young black woman (under 18) do not, I repeat do not answer him. Unless you like a white older Euorpean male seeing you as only a fetish. Target: black women/young girls

These white guys with black girl fetishes are atrocious.

Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?

*sigh

If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com

Again, I feel this begs to be said again:

Black.
Lives.
Matter.

OMFG :(

I’m gonna scream

Just in case you aren’t aware, J. Cole released a new song as a tribute to Michael Brown (the teen extrajudicially executed by Ferguson police earlier this week) entitled “Be Free”.

Ideally, this is a kindhearted gesture that gives visibility to the racism and injustice behind the murder.

The only issue is he used an actual photo of Michael’s dead body laid across the street as the cover of the song, which goes directly against the family’s wishes not to have such images of Michael circulating on the internet.

If you feel inclined, please mention him on Twitter @JColeNC constructively criticizing his callous usage of the photos or address it on his official Facebook page.

Regardless of his intentions, this proves disrespectful to the Brown family, who are still in the very early stages of grieving and should not be triggered by these images. If he receives enough opposition, it’ll greatly increase the likelihood of him changing the cover photo.

I’m not sad, but the boys who are looking for sad girls always find me. I’m not a girl anymore and I’m not sad anymore. You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.
