I love that my mama is one of the biracial ppl who knows she’s black first, now her brothers on the other hand…let’s just say they don’t view themselves as black.

Also ppl do realize the one drop rule was created by white ppl right?

i think about this when mixed people say “i’m mixed so i experience both sides of racism!”

I laugh so hard when I hear that cause it’s always bullshit

That’s why I love Adriana Lima, she ain’t wit that fufu lame shit

It’s like ppl don’t even wanna acknowledge the fact that we live in an anti black world and that representation matters.If you see a black person on tv, even if they don’t look like you, it still feels like a win. It helps build self esteem in black kids who think they mean nothing to this world. Idk know where I’m going with this so yeah

Ok I’m like done talking about that girl forever, I wish her all the luck in her quest to be an ambiguous butterfly, hopefully her other nationalities continue supporting her. I just hope she don’t keep fucking with her face.

One of my favourite TV shows - and arguably one of the best television programs to be produced on the continent in the past ten years - MTV Shuga is now on tumblr!

For those of you that need a brief introduction to the series that’s currently in it’s third season, MTV Shuga is a hard-hitting drama that follows the lives of young people in various urban African settings - first Nairobi and now Lagos - as they experience the highs and lows of love, sex, relationships, family, hustle and ambition.

Oh, and it’s also the show that broadcast the talents of Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o to households across Africa.

And any other time y’all will drag a mixed black person until they’re bald for downplaying their blackness, but naya gets a pass????

These glee fans are delusional. And I’m not here for y’all saying mixed kids aren’t accepted by black people. That is a damn lie. We love us some mixed babies.

Right?! Like whenever I hear that I’m like you do realize I come from a mixed race family right? I know the t, I grew up in it. Like please

And any other time y’all will drag a mixed black person until they’re bald for downplaying their blackness, but naya gets a pass????
