posted about this guy before

unfortunately he’s still online and looking for women of color to exotify/fetishize. 

please reblog so other women of color in Colorado are spared. 

"You figured I called you exotic because of your race… When it was actually because of your hair, eyes, color and size."

HA.

What the hell….having a black daughter doesn’t give you the permission to attack black women with racial slurs. What the fuck?

I don’t have time for your respectability politics. 

I don’t have time for people who police the bodies of black women. 

I don’t have time for people who police the sexuality of black women.

How the hell is Nicki Minaj responsible for the Jezebel stereotype?

A detrimental stereotype, created by white men, that was utilized to justify the rape of black women.  

A detrimental stereotype that robbed black women of their sexual autonomy and identity. 

Why are people so afraid of a black woman’s sexuality?

As a black woman, I support Nicki Minaj 3000%

I’m disappointed that you would send such a message.

This white feminist recently told me, an African woman, that all African men beat their women and wants to save African women from them. 

What the fuck??????

I was in complete shock.

Is this a common belief? 

because these statements are bullshit. 

It’s a common stereotype. They believe African men are inherently abusive. These white feminists are demons.

Black power is for Black men when Black women are expected to laugh at all the jokes that Black men make about Black women who were victims of domestic abuse. Tina Turner, Robin Givens, Rihanna. Ain’t nothing new.

Urgent - Please Spotlight:

I regret to tell you that Christina Fonthes - a dear friend and organiser of Rainbow Noir has been held against her will in The Congo - she was on a family holiday with her mother who has decided to have Christina ‘cured’ of her sexuality. 

Christina has managed to escape from her aunt’s house and is currently hiding out with a friend. She has access to internet and has been communicating with us via email. The next available flight is 2nd September - 5 days away! Chris needs help and protection from the British Embassy in Congo but her mother has reported her missing and therefore we need to get in contact with both the UK Home Office and UK embassy in Congo to let them know that she is in danger and that her mother is lying/the one endangering her life!!

PLEASE SHARE THIS ON ALL YOUR NETWORKS. CALL, EMAIL, TWEET the British embassy on behalf of Christina - the more we call, the more attention it will bring to her case and hopefully they will act quicker in getting Christina to a safe place. 

HER MOTHER HAS HER PASSPORT AND TRAVELING DOCUMENTS!

CHRISTINA’S LIFE IS IN DANGER. PLEASE DO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. 

If you can help please contact @RainbowNoirMCR or @WritersofColour on twitter.

Please re-tumblr this. This is an actual friend of ours and we need your help to get her home safe.

Introducing Screamin’ Jay Hawkins: 

image

Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, was an African-American shock rock musician.  He rose to prominence for his powerful, operatic vocal delivery, and wildly theatrical-avant garde performances, he sometimes used macabre props (like the skull he’s holding in the picture above) onstage, making him an early pioneer of Shock Rock. 

HE PIONEERED SHOCK ROCK.

The reason why I bolded these statements is because people (mainly white people) claim Marilyn Mason pioneered Shock Rock when these claims are erroneous(I’m a Marilyn Mason fan myself ). Screamin’ Jay Hawkins was a massive influence to Marilyn Mason’s music, performances etc. Not only Mason, he also influenced bands such as Black Sabbath, The Cramps, Alice Cooper, and The Horrors.

Hawkins’ most successful recording, “I Put a Spell on You” (1956), was selected as one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. 

Don’t let his legacy die, keep his legacy in your memory. 

Oh, this is also directed to those who claim black people can’t be theatrical and/or Avant Garde.

Disgustingly racist exhibition happening in London, including the display of a chained black woman, horrifically reminiscent of the days of exhibition Sara Baartman. Needs approx 4,000 more signatures. SPREAD & SIGN.
