Anonymous said: how do you rationally explain to someone that saying 'i would never date someone of __ race. i just don't find them attractive' is racist? i have a heard time logically explaining it and i get angry at myself

internetexplorers:

tell them that it’s racist to write off an entire race because a race consists of millions of diverse individuals with depth and emotion like.. if the only thing stopping you from dating someone is the colour of their skin, that’s cheap and gross; it’s reducing someone to solely their race which is racist. ask them to think hard about why they don’t find that certain race attractive. we’ve been brainwashed into thinking white European features are the epitome of beauty, and that’s been drilled into us since the day we were born. we see that everywhere from Disney movies to beauty magazines to everything mainstream media feeds us. and before they can argue that “it’s only a preference!” it’s not. a preference is like preferring blond hair to dark hair or brown eyes to green eyes. you wouldn’t look at a person with brown hair and be like “ohh I can’t date that person they’re brunette!” and write them off but there are people who would look at a person of colour and immediately dismiss them and not give them a second thought BECAUSE of the colour of their skin and that. is. racist.

I'm from Australia so I have no idea but your photos are predominantly of black guys and girls, is it a race-specific thing or are they just your favourite subjects to shoot? Looks so cool and my gosh the style is so rad 👌

AFROPUNK is an influential community of young, gifted people of all backgrounds who speak through music, art, film, comedy, fashion and more. Originating with the 2003 documentary that highlighted a Black presence in the American punk scene, it is a platform for the alternative and experimental.

stripperina:

I’m not “selling my body” any more than a masseuse, or a construction worker, or a physical trainer, or a circus performer.  On stage, I perform dance and pole tricks in exchange for tips.  In lapdances, I provide people with a fantasy of intimacy.  I use my body for work, just like any other physical laborer.  Just because my form of labor involves nudity and sexuality doesn’t mean I’m selling any part of myself.  My body never exchanges owners at work.  It is always mine.

I did.  Very sad situation indeed.  A lot of people have to start realizing though is a lot of the stuff going on has always gone on.  Only difference is that now practically everyone has social media, and they’re finally starting to use it for important shit instead of just stupid shit.  And the best part is is that we’re ahead of the gov. on this.  When the internet started they didn’t realize what it’s true potental really was and how open it is.  Something they can’t fully control, so they’ve been scrambling to do so.  The more and more we expose this stuff the sooner they will have to start implementing changes in the way the police proceed thus the beginning of our generations version of a civil rights movement for various areas (gay rights, weed, etc.)

alwaysnevernotgivingafuck said: I agree that it's never okay for white people to say nigga. But I think it's unfair to jump on Taylor's video. She's not the first white person to appropriate b-boy culture or twerking, to this end I don't believe as black people we have any claim to it's use except perhaps authenticity. Second, I don't assume that the majority of people harbour overt racial prejudice and are just 'hiding it'. We all harbour subconscious stereotypes about race and I don't believe Taylor meant any harm.

Taylor isn’t the first to have this subject brought up about, so no one is jumping on her they’re making an observation and bringing light to something that is apparent in the industry.  The point I believe that is being expressed is that while people like her want to embrace that culture when times are good, but when we have situations such as the Michael Brown incident happening their voice is silent.  I also don’t assume that the majority of people are harboring some sort of racial prejudice, so yeah, cool story.

Anonymous said: When you were looking into clubs to work at, what did you look for? And what kinds of questions did you ask at your audition? I'm considering becoming a dancer but I don't know what to look for!

stripperina:

Good question.  When looking at whether or not a club would be good to work at, I’d say, go in and ask the dancers how much they like it there.  See how many bouncers are there and how active they seem.  See if the dancers seem happy and engaged or not.  See how clean the facilities are and how safe the building seems.  In an audition, ask what the rules of the club are, both for dancers and for customers.  Ask about the stage fees and how many staff members you tip out at the end of the night, and what the minimum tipouts are.  Ask how much lapdances costs, and if you have to give the club a percentage of your lapdance earnings or not.  Ask if they enforce a tipping minimum at the stage.  That’s all I can think of for now.  Good luck!

sunvapor said: What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

clehmentine:

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

dearcoquette:

My boyfriend of 2 years just broke up with me. Besides the emotional turbulence, which I know will pass, I’m pretty sure rationally that I don’t have great chances of ever finding someone better for me.


Actually, that’s pretty much the opposite of rational.

Getting dumped sucks, and right now it’s perfectly understandable for you to feel like you’ll never find someone better. It may even seem like a logical conclusion, but it’s not.

The fault in your logic is that you aren’t going to stay the same person you are today. Yes, the emotional turbulence will pass, but more than that, you’re going to continue growing and changing, so it’s perfectly okay if you never find someone better for the person you are at the moment, because that’s not who you’re always going to be.

Whatever you do, don’t set this guy up in your mind to be “the one that got away.” He isn’t, and that’s not really a thing. That kind of thinking is just a bullshit excuse people use to let themselves stay emotionally paralyzed.

Keep your shit together, and start moving on, because the point isn’t to find someone better. The point is to be someone better, and if you do it for yourself, I promise that one day, you’ll look back on the boyfriend who you thought was perfect at the time, and all he’ll seem like is a quaint exercise in early love.

trxplxrd said: you outta rehab ?

yamborghini:

I been outta rehab. My life was no joke. My drug use lead to me suffering from seizures and having other sicknesses that Pimp C was diagnosed with prior to his death. I’m only talking bout this on tumblr cuz y’all got a little bit more common sense than twitter. My tolerance by the time I checked in was 8 xanax bars just to let that high kick in. My idea of enjoying life had people thinking I was trying to take away my own life. None of them drugs no joke. In rehab I started getting knowledge of self and realizing that I am a god, and as a god nothing should have control over them whether it’s lust drugs money or any vice.

Also lead me to see how basic as fuck this generation is with no sense of personal identity. Everyone wears codeine themed clothing, wears gucci goggles, flexes cheap lean( i know you not sippin no act), and wears gold teeth. Y’all mothafuckas look like y’all got no class I can’t believe y’all go to y’all momma crib dressed like that b. I also realized everybody wanna be a trapper or a street nigga now and display ignorance. What happened to being a smart gangsta or just being smart in general.

I been clean since June 26th though even stopped smoking newports. I’m trying my hardest to avoid festivals, video shoots, club walk-throughs or anything that’s going to make me hate the human race more than i do. I’,m addicted to the money though fasho.

Deleting this in a few cuz I’m not here to kick knowledge just get dollas.
