Stop blaming black children for their own murders. STOP BLAMING BLACK CHILDREN FOR THEIR OWN MURDERS. Stop blaming black children for their own goddamn fucking murders. Stop blaming black children for their own murders.

We don’t think about white girls at all on this blog.
Rebloging for that response

You’re my first anonymous message!!!!
It depends on the attitude of media. For those sites/blogs etc. that focus on body positivity for plus size girls and women in a positive way (you can say big girls are beautiful with out saying fuck skinny bitches) I feel the same way most people feel when white people come on black beauty appreciation sites like “what about us?”. The closer you are to European standard of beauty, the more representation you have. You don’t need a blog called “fuck yea skinny girls” you have Vogue, Elle, news anchors, 99% of the female leads in movies and tv and 99% of the music industry. Let us have our space.
For those who tear down skinny girls to uplift big girls, I have mixed feelings. The bitter little girl in me who was bullied and called an animal, a fat black pig etc. is glad to see the shoe on the other foot. Granted the level/amount of hate they get doesn’t even compare to what big girls get.
The grown woman in me who has come to love herself and forgive her past feels that we should all be focusing on the positive. Uplifting people in a positive way without tearing down whole groups of other people. I also feel media should be moving towards accurate, equal, positive representation of the world. Giving fat, skinny, white, black, Indian, natural hair, weave, disabled, homo sexual, trans sexual, tall, short and every other way to classify a person positive, sympathetic, stigma free representation.
