white girls are having a crisis, y’all.

HAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

White folks need to leave AAVE alone.

It’s clear they have no idea what they are saying or why they are saying

what does that waffle have to do with being basic

?

they have no idea what they are talking about or what it means to be basic.

As per usual, white folks take something meant for them

try to use it on their terms

an fail horribly.

wait…I know why this happened.

Remember when cosmo posted pictures of  Kendall Jenner  in that bathrobe and shower shoes outfit and we called her basic as hell

This is why it happened.

If you can read that, and see that, first know its not “the internet ’ calling basic white girls basic. It’s black women and other women of color that are tired of ordinary looking, unskilled, mediocre white women being overly represented while stealing black culture (like you did via appropriating AAVE)  while we have to litterally hunt through  magazine, TV shows, catwalks and movies for a black woman that looks like us. 

You want to stop being basic, stop appropriating. Stop celebrating the same stock images of white women and start putting easily identifiable  black women in your magazines and on your covers on a regular basis.

I cannot believe you would write and article about this shit and not even begin to address why we would  call them that.

DO you even have black writers? FAIL

"stealing black culture"

I had no idea using a basic word in the english language as an insult was “stealing black culture” 

If you honestly squeal like scalded cats over someone else using the word “basic” as an insult and claim your culture is being stolen, then honey, it’s not the white woman whose having an identity crisis. 

Turns out you can appropriate your own culture by using the english language! 

^^^^^^^^

White people trying to tell us how to speak english while appropriating AAVE. FAIL

Much like cosmo, you are taking the usage of the word out of context. Which is why you need to leave things that are not for your ignorant wonder bread, light mayo, skim milk, on a paper plate in snow storm ass.

cosmo isn’t using the webster dictionary of basic but is in fact using the AAVE context of basic, which is indeed appropiation. You claiming we’re the ones who are in crisis when yet it’s white heffas like you just love to get in your feelings the moment you’re reminded of the lane you swerved out of. Black Women and Black People can’t appropriate the english language sweethart or do you need a basic run down on Black History and this country’s imperialism and colonialism, regarding the english language and how it was imposed us. AAVE is a language, a dialect bringing up how it isn’t or that white people appropriating AAVE is incorrect because the words we use is english is a moot and dumbass point, that don’t mean jackshit. If anything bringing up how we are using the english language to form our own language again points to brutalistic history of America and the ingenius of Black Americans to still manage to form a language and culture even if our original heritage was stolen from us. Both of y’all can sit the fuck down, cause y’all writing checks yo ass can’t cash. You speaking when you have no business in this conversation, becky and skylar stay to the rivers and the lakes that you use to.

jsyk, only 2.9% of the population in Canada is black, and yet black Canadians makes 80% of prisons and are mostly likely to get mistreated in them

A white kid gets tasered and suddenly the FBI is involved? Really?

From the article:

In a September 4 budget  meeting, Wade said that Northwest Lakeland has a bit of a black problem. “Here in Lakeland we’re seeing everything,” Wade said. “Our black community in the northwest section — not just the gangs, but just a culture that has really gone backwards, almost like animals.”

He continued,  “It’s not just the gang problem, it’s the teenage girls. We’ve got to get them to say no and quit having these babies. The culture in that community is spreading into other parts of Lakeland.”


This POS expressed his opinion of people.  I think we should express our opinions- starting with the mayor and going up to the governor of the state.  Don’t forget to include the Detroit Tigers head office in your calls/emails, as Lakeland is where their farm team and spring training are.  I’ll bet the Tigers could find another more hospitable city to train in…

Dude, I’m a lawyer and these women are educators," she said in reply. "Why the hell would I be in here soliciting prostitution?" Washington said he answered, "I don’t know but that’s what you’re doing.

It’s exhausting explaining systems of oppression to folks, but it is all to necessary. This education won’t come to you via State endorsed curriculums, it has to come from each other. Picking your battles makes a world of a difference for your sanity.
