if u think that a blog that is a safe space for black women translates into a ‘white women hating blog’ then u honestly need to grow up! just because we uplift one another as black women doesn’t mean we hate white women or we are attacking white women! black women need to honestly stan for themselves because no one else is? the last time i checked u self hating ass niggas wasn’t but i’m sleep!!!!

How many of you have heard Latasha Harlins?
*everyone is silent*She was killed by Korean store owner Soon Ja Du, which set off the LA Riots. Ice Cube did a song about her called Black Korea, predicting that riot in fact. Some of us know. And no, I didn’t have to look her up. I remember. I read the Final Call.
She was murdered over a damn bottle of orange juice that store owner thought she was going to steal. There were eye witnesses and security camera footage.
The store owner still got no jail time!
It’s not just an inconvenience to be followed around the store. You can be murdered if the store clerk decides to stand their ground. If you’ve been followed around a store before, let Harlins tragedy serve as a reminder of why you shouldn’t go back.
Don’t spend money where you are not welcomed!
