Look what I found :”What About African Women?”

This article disgusts me not only does it exotify and humiliate African women but it is also demeaning to African-American women. 

"I used to teach some ESL for work study while in school, and I remember having a few black African females in class. They weren’t all gorgeous, although several were, but they were both feminine and thin — far more so than your typical black American woman.”

"The contrast was remarkable. These girls seemed to be on an entirely different plane. Even the least attractive of them had a certain feminine charm and sweetness that seems entirely absent in black American women under the age of 50 or so.”

"I’m sure pickings are slim out in the country where life is harsh and women age very quickly, but it seems that urbanized African women beat their American counterparts by a wide margin.”

and the comments ugh…just filled with black men bashing African women and African-American women and white men sexualising, exotifying and also bashing African women. They also degrade Asian women.

A lot of Black American men like to pit African women and Black American against each other. Seriously, stop it. Black American women are my sisters, and I’ll defend them til death. I won’t be your submissive African woman.

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

this makes me want to cry
