I'm black and I'm proud, I'm black and I'm beautiful!

Its been a rough day. Much anger was held, way too many tears shed, and a lot of anxiety filled my spirit. But i'm better now. It is Martin Luther King Jr. Day here in the states and I refuse to spend a day meant to honor his memory and legacy by wallowing in a pool of my own woes and self pity.

Anyhow, i was on fb and saw this:
And yet i'm supposed to believe that we live in a post-racist society. SMH (Hopefully she's just trolling...not that there aren't a bazillion other idiots who think just like this). And the battle marches on...

  1. I cannot believe that she said that!! & To celebrate the man that killed him? Forget that MLK was black but to celebrate murder and death is just absurd! I am sorry you had to see that! -___-

  3. She got it twisted, it isn't just about ML King but what he fought and stood for.

    1. She's either a troll (highly likely) or just someone looking for any excuse to say something ridiculous.

    1. Anything that starts with "Not to be rude/racist/etc", never ends well. She needs to take a long walk off a short cliff.

  8. Wow...black people really need to wake up and realize that there is still a lot of "hidden" racism going on against them. The Internet is the PERFECT place to browse to see what whites really think about ALL blacks, no matter where they were born. If you go to urbandictionary.com, they have defined Haiti as "the perfect example of what happens to a country when niggers run it." They say the same thing about Africans and their countries, and they also down Black Americans of course about being "welfare kings and queens." A lot of the problems within the black race is because of whites and slavery and all of that. I don't know why this girl is talking about Indians because there are still a lot of Native Americans who are pissed off that their land was stolen from the white man, and believe it or not, a lot of indian women were raped as well and their kids could be sold into slavery in the 1800s. I don't have anything against white people really, but history is history and as soon as blacks wake up and start uniting and realize all of this crap, we'll be a lot better off!
