White “allies”

yup.

But if it was “white power” she’d be racist and probably beat. But you know, it’s whatever.

Black power ≠ white power
Black power = Resistance. A response to the abuse and subjugation of white supremacy. Recognizing the humanity of Blackness. Black people uplifting themselves from the margins. A rallying cry of self-love, self-actualization and autonomy. Black power does not mean the subjugation and abuse or torment of white people. It has never meant this and it never will. Show me the examples of “Black power” chants stripping whites of anything.
white power = white supremacy, subjugation, abuse and torment of everyone not white. Anywhere chants of “white power” ring, hatred follows behind. Look no further than the people who scream “white power” and why they say it.
This stuff is not hard to understand or figure out.
The fact that a white woman is in that Ferguson crowd unharmed is proof positive that a chant of “Black power” is not about dehumanizing, abusing, torturing or subjugating white people. Black people are not even in the position to do that. 
On the other hand, ask yourself, what would happen to a lone Black person in a crowd of white supremacists chanting “white power”? Would that black person be safe?
The ignorant think “Black power” means enacting to white people what “white power” has enacted to Black people.

"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations."

Pioneers of the land. By Yuriy Priymak:
"408 ml. years back. Early Devonian Period of the Palaeozoic Era. East coasts of the continent of Lavrussiya (territory of modern Baltic). In those far times Earth was almost not manned. Since the end of the ordovician period when began the next freezing. The seas receded, baring the huge land areas which were once coral reef. And animals will not will had to adapt to new conditions of dwelling. Evripterida the arthropods living in a tidal drain zone of the ancient seas were one of the first. They became pioneers of the new world. Evripterida prospered in the Silurian period and lived up to the end Devonian. In a picture two Dolichopterus stoermeri which are scurrying about in a coastal zone in search of food are presented." Keep reading

 I remember the day you left. Tying a rock to your ankle you said ” I’m going to find a new world under the ocean. ” Guess you must be enjoying yourself.
I haven’t seen you since.

By the way, I know a lot of people I know offline follow me here; none of my personal posts are meant as passive aggressive jabs, this blog was my place to vent, and will continue to be that.

Fuck that. Perhaps this isn’t just jealousy, and it definitely isn’t just internalised misogyny. I am able to judge other women for hurting me, without it being reduced to me being irrational or too emotional.

You see what I’m getting at here?
