I saw this on twitter. This is beautiful.

It’s not beautiful, it’s stupid and degrading! NOBODY should use either!

Shut your dumb ass up.

Always that one person ^^ lmao.

Here let me make it two. IT is stupid and degrading. Nobody should be using either, but your stupid asses just can’t think of a better word to use now can you?

White folks always tryna police what the fuck we say. And then you got these Uncle Tom ass niggas wanting to join in and tap dance for to impress your white “pals”. All y’all can kiss my black ass. It’s sociology 101. Simple shit. I grew around Mexicans my whole life and they used to call each other beaners. You know what would happen if I called one of homies a beaner? I’d get my face sliced up. It’s called cultural relativism, assholes. You take the culture for what it is and you RESPECT THE BOUNDARIES OF SAID CULTURE. Now all y’all shut the fuck up.

^^^ I love this person right here

"To whom it may concern. This is a challenge to the zealously held belief that Africa is a monolithic village in need of perpetual saving. This is an open assault upon the delusions of those who cry endlessly of desolate stomachs and doorways darkened by disease. This is a public disavowing of all who think the cradle of civilization has nothing more to offer than unmolested raw materials and an army of open palms awaiting aid.Further, this is a disclaimer that upon becoming dissatisfied with the myriad fictions which are daily presented to us as fact, we have henceforth resolved to tell our own stories. Loudly. No longer will we dine on a bounty of half-baked biases. No more will we sip from hoses gushing hypocrisy and hogwash. There are those who look past Africa’s beauty in the hopes of seeing savagery; so that they may preen and posture as saints. We are the children of tomorrow. And we are here to assure that their disappointment awaits.”
