Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.

And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

ALL OF THIS

Nicki Minaj speaking up about the backlash she received for her “Anaconda” cover. There will forever be a difference in how black bodies are viewed even when being marketed the same way. When black women show their bodies they are hoochies and hoes. But when white women show their bodies in a similar or even more revealing manner it is ART or fine. It can be sold in stores, seen in households without a second glance. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with women showing skin but pointing out there’s no difference between the two. Intersectionality is real. Hard out here for black women. Feminist movement never claimed us.

i think black women’s butts are seen as inherently pornographic, and skinny white butts don’t deserve to be fetishized

and it’s interesting that she used the term angelic, that naked white women have always been a symbol of virginity, while naked black woman get called ratchet, associated with using their bodies to corrupt people, even when pregnant, depicted as welfare queens and hoochie mamas etc.

Nicki shuttin em down. And that thing about the feminist movement is so true, they were all up in arms when Miley was “twerking” all over everyone’s hopes and dreams, and when Lily Allen got all those black back up dancers in her video to twerk for her.

But when a black women does it, and does it for herself (and not as a back up dancer for a white artist) suddenly there’s radio silence. Or if they do say anything, the response is lukewarm at best. Hmm, I see you modern feminist movement, I see you…

Lol ok thanks for the response. I honestly was hoping to see what you thought of that I'm open for a discussion and different points of view but aight

You’re anon so I dismissed it. And you made a statement not asked a question. So I don’t know what you want me to respond to.
But first and foremost you cannot ignore intersectionality. And you cannot ignore history. She’s black so it plays a role. A lot of times people say we are playing the victim but you can’t tell someone their experience isn’t real. If you as a white woman with a big butt feel discriminated against or preyed on and feel it’s because of the size of your ass…who am I to say no, it’s because you have short hair. Only with black women there is a documented history of hypersexualization and an attempt to make us inferior. Follow me?
Also, in print women are often posed to be submissive and accessible. Women clearly are often the object of sexual desire for men. Someone pointed out that here Nicki is being dominant, so power comes into play. She looks aggressive and inaccessible to the male audience. Her body is on display but it’s still hers. She is still in control.

I could keep going but like I said you didn’t ask a question so idk what you want me to address. Feel free to come off anon and have a conversation with me.

I wish you were here with me.
I miss you.
I’ll always miss you until the day you’re my wife.
And we live the same lives
In the same house
With the same children
And the same love
Or maybe even stronger love
Stronger love is good
That… Sweater instead of sweatshirt kinda love
I don’t…

About your comment on nicki minajs IG- there’s ton of thin black models doing the same shit and they don’t get backlash. It’s because of the size of her ass not the color of her skin. If iggy were to do the exact same pose I promise you she’d get the same kind of attention. As a white woman with a big ass I understand this is not a race issue it’s over-sexualization of our bodies, and she clearly chose to show off her ass for that kind of attention anyways

Ok.

Because Madonna or Lady Gaga or Christina Aguilera were never called hoes or sluts? Yeah, continue playing the victim, it helps with notes on tumblr.

Continue messaging people anonymously calling them victims as you suffer from white privilege.

I can’t disagree, but I also think the backlash is about the power Minaj is displaying in that photo. She’s alone, confident, and wearing proper running shoes. With her photo, you’re aroused, but also intimidated. The Sports Illustrated cover, on the other hand, shows not one, but three scantily clad women touching each other in very unassuming poses, smiling at you. They’re vulnerable and sexually inviting in the way that women are supposed to be.

The photos are overtly sexual, and I would argue that Minaj’s pose is more overtly sexual since it’s just her, but the difference is not so much that anti-sex types wouldn’t be upset about both photos. There is a big difference because of race, but we’re also seeing sexism - racialized sexism, of course.

The SI cover is made by men, for men, to consume women. Minaj’s photo is made by her, for her, and she doesn’t really care if you don’t like it. When I look at her face, I don’t see someone being sexual for any other reason than she wants to do that - she’s not even inviting you to join her. She’s saying, “you want some of this? of course you do, but I’m making this decision,” and our weak little society can’t handle it. 

I’m so going to buy this album.
