I am officially too old for Tumblr. I have never heard so many ridiculous arguments made by so many unintelligent people in my life. I have realised that some people just WANT to be offended. The phrase “I find it really offensive” is so overused and undervalued. No you dont, you lost no sleep…

You are so dense, what kind of fantasy world are you living in?? This is a war on black people called the MAAFA look it up and stop putting white people on a pedestal.

I don’t put White people or Black people or Asian people on any sort of pedestal because that would suggest that your skin colour has anything to do with character. I hate when people say all black people are the same or treat us all the same so why would I do that to white people? That would make me a racist hypocrite. Sorry for not being racist, and sorry, but that the war on black people hasn’t reached my shores.

It’s not about being “offended” it’s a reaction to several hundred years (and counting) of oppression which you not only don’t seem to understand but undermine… You really need to educate yourself on the MAAFA and look at the history of Black Britons if you think black people and other people of colour do not face racism in the UK.

STOP TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. No Britain is not a utopia but we don’t go around attacking people because of how they chose to live their lives. As an African your the type of Americans we hate the most, you try and preach about shit you don’t know. I bet you have never even been to an Caribbean island let alone african Country yet your still gonna preach about how you know more about our history, girl please you only know what the internet shows you and what books America allows you to read.

Lol I’m half Jamaican half Liberian… I’m not American either, guttersandgalleries ignorance is staggering to me, she can live her life tho

well I was wrong on that part, my apologies but I still stand by the rest of my post 

“Criticism of others is thus an oblique form of self-commendation. We think we make the picture hang straight on our wall by telling our neighbours that all his pictures are crooked.”

Again, words are being put in my mouth. If I didn’t think racism existed in the UK, I would just say it. But I didn’t say it so don’t look at 2+2 and come up with 5. “She thinks this…”. No. No I don’t. You don’t know what I think other than what I have written. And I never wrote that racism doesn’t exist in the UK. So stop telling me what I mean or what I think and then getting mad. Racism exists in every country on the planet. THAT’S what I think, I am not ignorant. I am simply not a racist myself, so I don’t go judging ANYONE based on skin colour, because I don’t wish to be judged on skin colour myself.

In other news here’s a fetish selfie.

This whole post is a mess. You got one person believing that there is a such thing as an african holocaust and another who thinks just because white men have sex with her, buy her gifts, and calls her beautiful that racism doesnt exist. Hmm.

I beggggggg that you don’t put words in my mouth. I don’t remember saying racism doesn’t exist. Do not infer things and try to make yourself sound clever and don’t tell me what I believe.

The phrase “I find it really offensive” is so overused and undervalued. No you dont, you lost no sleep over anything, you just want to look like one of those smart tumblr people who is just so constantly offended and constantly right. I’M offended by such constant waves of stupidity and by people who invent arguments in their head in order to feel important or to try and project their warped views of the world. Glad to live in the UK where white people and black people are neither constantly offended by, or constantly at war with each other.

It’s strange how giving can literally change your whole day. Bought a huge bag of food for this homeless woman and she was so thankful and positive, it has made me feel so good :)
Feeling on top of the world.

itsaprilme asked:
to stop going around false information on an island's history so that you can fell superior to another black ethnic group, BECAUSE YOU KNOW NOTHING OF OUR HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What false information? I have not actually stated any specific facts about Jamaica so I would like to know what I said that has offended you. Angry woman.

greyalchemist asked:
Ok, so first of all, you're almost TOO gorgeous; It makes no sense. Anyway, I'm American and black people here don't know anything about their history because it was taken from them by white slavers. My question is, do you/black people from other countries in general, know a lot about your heritage? Is it a big part of your life?

Hey thank you for the lovely message :)
I am not sure exactly what you are asking so I will answer the two scenarios-
Scenario one is that you are saying that black people in America don’t know about their exact heritage (ie what part of africa etc they were bought from). In the UK, everyone knows if their heritage is Ghanian, Jamaican, Nigerian, Ugandan etc. It is not uncommon for someone to ask “what country are you from” even though you are born here and as are your parents, and you reply with your heritage country “I’m Jamaican” etc. Yes it plays a big part. I was bought up eating Jamaican food listening to Jamaican music and when I went to Jamaica I felt.. Jamaican I guess. You know what village your grandparents grew up in, you know where you are from. Every black person knows. Carribean culture is very different from African culture and the people look different too. Because most carribean and African people didn’t come to the UK via America, the looks are less “diluted” and in the UK I would say I can easily spot the difference between a Nigerian, Ghanian and Caribbean person. It’s something I thought about recently- and I guess there is something a little sad about the fact that African American dont know where they are from, but at the same time black people in America seem to have created their own culture of food, music etc.

The second scenario is that you are saying that black people don’t have a general knowledge about black history because white people took it from them. It’s worth mentioning that William Ellison was a very successful slave owner/planter and had over 60 slaves, and was black. Many years later and with the benefit of the internet, if you’re wondering what key figures lead the the abolishment of slavery you have all that information at your fingertips. I think, simply, that the average young black person, on any given day, simply doesn’t care. They are not looking for the information. My mother had sooo many books about civil rights in our household. I don’t think the onus is on the white community to teach you about your history. Indian people know a lot about their history, traditions and religion etc because the community looks after and educates itself. Of course this does not feature in any school books, but the people have enough interest in it to teach each other, and pass information through families and the community. Asians, Jews, Arabs etc teach themselves, instead of blaming white people for the fact that they are ignorant. I believe in personal responsibility. There are things that you will have problems changing by yourself, but to take control of your self knowledge and education is something that should come from you. You should not need a school teacher to prompt you to know who you are. You could spend one hour a day online reading about black history and within a few months know so much, but in reality most young black people would rather spend that hour a day on tumblr.

Both scenarios covered :)

Do you think you’re not a slave descendant or something ? Lmao you not indigenous to Jamaica girl. Like this whole post is doodoo dumb.

What the hell? I’m Jamaican and this is a whole lot of shit, she even called communities the island ‘villages’. Is she serious?Any Jamaican that know there history,knows that black people are not indigenous to the fucking Caribbean for Godsakes. We have plantations, sugar  estates(which are a big part of the islands of the economy still) and colonial era laws this still in place. Just because you are a child of Jamaican parents doesn’t mean you’re Jamaican and a lot of these foreign born children know nothing of the islands history of it’s people or culture,they’re foreigners and should educate themselves before they speak of the island’s rich history and culture.

I don’t remember saying I am indigenous to Jamaica…. My grandparents and great grandparents were born and raised in Jamaica, thus making them Jamaican. I identify with my Jamaican history because I grew up with this food and culture and my grandparents are proud Jamaicans. Identity is subjective. Don’t be agressive on my post because I see my identity as different to yours xxx
