Shocking that the cornbread scene didn’t make it but i predicted everything else

That Della Reese fight was funnier and more significant being that Richard Pryor and Redd Foxx are gone. 

It was close though, could have gone either way. Last night the cornbread scene was winning and when I woke up the votes had swung the other way.

I saw a news report about this on T.V., she was a straight A Student who had perfect attendance and everything. Everyone loved and respected her for her skills, but when she started this experiment and people thought she was pregnant, they started treating her like garbage. Even her teachers started looking down on her like she was scum of the earth. The only people who knew she was doing this as an experiment were her school principal, her health care teacher, her boyfriend, and her mother. Her own siblings thought she was pregnant!I mean even her friends turned on her, it was horrid. Very very sad, and as soon as she revealed during an assembly that the pregnancy was false, a lot of people were in shock as she brought up all the horrible things they said and did to her because they thought she was pregnant.The reason for the experiment was to see how people would react and treat her if they thought she was pregnant, as opposed as to treating her as the straight A “Perfect” student they usually did. And it proved that people were horrible scumbags to her as soon as they thought she was.

holy shit. this is fucking awesome

I read this chick’s book! It was so cool.

Her book is The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez

Pretty sure I reblogged something about this in the past, but now someone’s posted a book title and I want to read this book

They also made a movie about this too, you can watch it here.

A Poem for Renisha McBride

crunkfeministcollective:

Renisha McBride

Hopefully, you have been following the trial of Theodore Wafer, a Michigan man, who killed 19 year old Renisha McBride last fall when she came to his door in the early morning hours after a car accident begging for help. He shot and killed her through a locked door, because he claims he felt afraid. Local residents in Detroit, marched and rallied on Renisha’s behalf and ensured her killer was brought to trial. But there has been no national outrage of the sort we saw last year with Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis. Wafer’s attorney has attempted to prove that Renisha was “up to no good,” citing alcohol and drug use.  It simply remains unclear to me how drinking, smoking, and then needing help, constitute a crime worthy of being shot in the head and left to die on a random man’s  porch. Renisha’s life meant something, and she deserved so much better than to be shot down on a cold Michigan morning, because she found herself in need of something we all will need eventually: help.

Between Gaza, Boko Haram, mass deportations, and the indiscriminate killing of Black folks by police, these are scary times in which we are living. We hope you are all taking care of yourselves, being gentle with yourselves and each other, seeking out and giving your energy to the things that matter.

In the immortal words of Tupac, Keep Ya Head Up.

Now, I want to share with you this poem, that I received after I did a recent appearance on HuffPost Live with Marc Lamont Hill to discuss Renisha’s trial.

Renisha McBride

by Sheree Renée Thomas 

“We don’t see black women as women, so they don’t get the traditional protections of femininity…”—Dr. Brittney Cooper, aka Professor Crunk

They say Medusa

was once so beautiful

a goddess envied her

drove her from

her sisters’ side

and stole her grace

Was it her dark skin, the color

of sun-ripened flesh?

Was it her locs

that writhed and swung free

with their own breath?

Banished from her throne

to lie beneath another’s heel

time ravaged her birthright

so that her very name

intoned fear

a fear that echoed

through the ages

Medusa, Renisha

What kind of fear

flings open

a closed, locked door

and blasts the head off

a lone black woman?

What kind of fear

possesses

in the witching hours

before dawn?

What kind of fear

pulls one from sleep

and blinds both eyes

to the humanity

that lives within

all skin?

What kind of fear

finds it reasonable

and honest to leap

from lending a hand

to triggering the finger

that kills?

and still

Medusa belongs nowhere

Is there a space where she belongs?

Is there a corner of a dark cave

she is free to cling to?

Where may she find

empathy, peace?

Medusa

one of triple moons

the goddess of renewal

and strength

She is bereft of her sisters

and we her sisters

mourn her loss
