If Peter Gabriel can do all of this, then he could have cut specific checks to specific people for slavery reparations. Some ancestry dna businesses show you the names & locations of people you are distantly related to, so that applies to distant ties from slavery era sexual violence. #globalactivism #greatbritain #transatlanticslavetrade #sexualviolence #sexualviolenceawareness #saam #petergabriel #london #europe #whitesupremacyisterrorism #reparationsnow #dannyglover #rockandroll #worldmusic #colorism #africa

This house was recently completed. Our crew uses lime plaster mixed with pigment. Lime has less environmental impact than portland cement. It costs less and even repels insects. It also ensures breathability so that humidity does not get stuck in the walls. The lines are made of ceramic tile. The owners pick the colors they like. We’ve done 15 houses so far, about 20 more to go. We don’t really intend to stop of course. Go ahead and follow @favelapainting and check out our website (bio) #favelapainting #favela #riodejaneiro #architecture #streetart #colors #community #communityart #vilacruzeiro #art #brazil #brasil #colorism #artcurator

The key to being happy is knowing what to accept and what to let go. 💫

Eula Mae laid on the kitchen floor. Silent. Crying. She looked at the muddy foot prints tracked across the floor. She pulled down her dress and continued to clean the floors. She kept her shame quiet as her grandmother and their mothers had done before her.
On May 9th 1958 when my mother was born Mrs. Carol stopped by with some gifts for the new baby. To Mrs. Carol’s shock and dismay there was my Mama, as white as her, with brownish red tinged hair, suckling on my grand mothers cinnamon brown breast.
My Grand Mother graciously accepted the gifts from her employer. Told her son Chauncey to put the gifts in her bedroom where her whole family slept.
Eula Mae then told Mrs. Carol to meet her new born baby girl named: Carol Johnson.
Mrs. Carol passed out. Right next to the coal burning stove.

Coming from @evelyns.art
We have this new interesting style which reminds us of Pablo Picasso's approach to abstract shapes and Henri Matisse's use of color. You definitely need one extra cogwheel working in your imagination machine in order to produce art like this.
----------
Tag us or use #escapewithart if you would like to get featured on our page. Tell us a little bit about yourself when you do. Are you self taught? Do you master any style? What are your dreams as an artist? We would love to write something about you.

My mother walked to school with her brother Chauncey. Most days Chauncey’s two best friends Chester and Joseph would walk with them. Chester was sweet on Mama, and Mama said she was sweet on him too.

Two of the boys, her brother and Joseph “were black as midnight” my mother told me that how odd it looked to the white folk in town that she , as fair as she was, would be walking with 2 negro boys.

One day Mama fondly recalled an incident, (she told this story often): “ While I was with Chauncey, and Joe a white woman called Sheriff Saunders because she thought I was being toted off by 2 niggers possibly to be raped. “ She ended that story with a sharp cackle. “That nosey Rose Marie” she continued, “She was new to Hawthorne she ain’ know no better.” She was almost white passing she would say. ‘Till this day mama will not step foot outside on a sunny day without an umbrella or “ sun hat” for fear of sunburn. As I got older I realized it wasn’t the sunburn she feared , it was the sun .The sun activated her blackness. The celestial body created by the very God who awarded her with Caucasian skin would make her dark. Imagine that? I used to giggle at the irony.

Brands such as @fashionnova @forever21 and @goodamerican have consistently been blamed and called out for stealing from black designers and creatives. The receipts are EVERYWHERE. The reason these companies are able to steal from independent designers without virtually any consequences is because they make so much in profits, they’ll usually just cut the designers a check and settle out of court. Court fees, lawyers, and the process of suing someone are extremely expensive, and most people cannot afford to pursue a lawsuit. In fact, many of these companies set aside money just for monetary settlements to the independent designers they’ve stolen from. This says several things to me. 1.) These companies know they are unoriginal and they know their team of designers are stealing from others. 2.) They don’t care. 3.) They plan to keep doing it.

many dudes my age prefer to date lightskin women and i’ve always wondered why. i know it’s a preference and all but at the same time it seems a little off. you won’t date a woman all because of her skin color? idk, but dark skin women are beautiful to me

Of the many things I desire to do; one is have a talk about colorism.
That's what this image represents
I'd like to lead a discussion between myself and as many who will chime in on this subject. Don't do so now in the comments because today I won't have time to respond however the time will come and soon.
This subject is one that has a major impact on not just the black race but the human race. Being an African-American woman, I am witnessing the impact #colorism has and it causes alarm, sadness and many other thoughts and emotions for me. I'd just like to hear from others as well. I also desire to help eradicate this subject because it #matters #Skin #Color #ISM #SoonComingToARoundTable #NearYou #WeWillTalk~

A bit from Toure Show x Dr. Crystal Fleming @alwaystheself about the depth of colorism. I did not know this. There’s a lot more deep research about race and racism in our interview and in her book How To Be Less Stupid About Race. Link in bio.

Poem written by me below 👇🏽👇🏽 picture is dope but not mine.
I hold privilege
I’m a light skin sistah
My dark skin queens
Yes, their melanin’s richer
With features many would pay for
Yet they’re still ignored
Unappreciated
White females, white skin Latinas
Often imitating
The darker shades
You stay hating
Acting like we on the same page
You won’t understand
You’re not in our shoes
The majority sees you
As the standard
Claiming European
Or Spanish so loudly
All high and mighty
Then obsess over melanin
Craving black identity
Tweaking your own appearance
Like it’s a hobby
My own blood prejudice against their own kind
Colorism
Ignorance
Nigga this nigga that
But you can’t stand blacks
It’s a shame
The darker the flesh
The more chaos it brings
The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
A mixture of feelings
I’m so tired of the fakeness
The commodity
These beauty rules
They wanna be black
But they don’t wanna be black
Check your privilege
Straight hair
White skin
Deemed as the greatest
But a haunting truth
People desire the browness
By @tiarashantelle ✍🏽
