Black platonic love - communities most underrated type of love 🤎🖤
Tumblr media
I believe black platonic love should be valid as black love. Either it’s queerplatonic or friendship.
When I think of black qprs, regardless of sexual orientation, I think of pinks and yellows. Two brightly joyful colors, to represent the pure joy of being in a qpr. Also the colors of the queer platonic flag 💖💛🤍🖤
I hope this moodboard makes black aros feel seen ☺️💚🤍🖤

In his defense, his mother did say that she should have been clearer about photo day. But at least we know he's a good kid.

Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder
Tumblr media
Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder is the sum total of the emotional and psychological impact of our abduction and separation from Africa, slavery, Jim Crow, the crushing of the Black American Revolution (starting with the deportation of Marcus Garvey and ending with the destruction of the Black Panther Party), the Black indoctrination in a system of white values, beliefs and supremacy, and the establishment of an economic caste system.
These experiences have all created deep, intense feelings of fear, anger, and self-hatred amongst African-Americans, resulting in self destructive psychosis. The suicidal, self-destructive nature that many Africans and African-Americans suffer from can be impossible to diagnose.
Resistance and denial create within us powerful psychological barriers that block our ability to honestly assess our thinking errors. As you read this, ask yourself if you indeed are resisting truths that lay at your core. It is perfectly normal to resist looking into the dark shadows of your subconscious, but this must be done if we are to heal our collective self esteem and break the psychological chains that have been forged for us, and that keeps us in bondage today.
Until we do so, all the gun programs, AIDS walks, Black conscious lectures, mass movements, and Stop The Violence concerts in the world will have a minimal effect. Until we truly examine the causes and effects of PTSD, we as a community – and you as an individual – may be subconsciously programmed for racial, financial, physical, cultural, and psycho-sexual forms of self destruction.

People keep saying Haiti is cursed as if France and the US haven’t basically been bullying them for the longest time. You got Red Cross not doing their job, but then again when do they ever do their job? All that money they raised and Haiti hasn’t seen a cent of it! Then to top it all off you have idiots saying “Well what about about the supernatural events?” What supernatural events?! You mean the fact that HAITI IS CLOSE TO THE RING OF FIRE AND IS LITERALLY ON THE FAULT LINE…..WHICH CAUSES EARTHQUAKES?! A bunch of y’all would rather be racist than help these people! And yes I said racist. An island full of mainly Black people and you wanna sit over there saying it’s cursed???? You don’t know no history of the island but you wanna say it’s cursed. Sit down somewhere and shut up.

please don’t normalize little black girls protesting
As a black woman, I don’t find it a great or even empowering to see little black girls having to fight, having to protest etc. It’s traumatizing. I’m tired of people, specifically white people treating those young black girls at protest as “inspirational porn” to consume. its...weird.
Most importantly, we should not be normalizing these images. Tell me how it’s inspirational to some of yall to see a young black girl already angry at the world and in pain at such a young age....?
The bigger issue is that it creates a idea of young black girls fighting back against oppression is painting the “strong black woman” narrative so young. It’s  creating an image of us being able to handle pain and being okay 
And I understand that there’s young black girls that don’t have the choice, but there are plenty of them that do and didn’t need to go out and protest at all.
I would rather see little black girls...being children, rather than glorified child soldiers. I would rather see little black girls doing kid things rather investing themselves in adult matters. You can teach your child about the realities in the world without turning them into child soldiers, its very possible to do so. Not sending them to protests isn’t “blocking out reality”. Please stop trying to strip the innocence of young black girls with your excuses.
