"They don’t know how to rap. They just want to rap because it represents ‘swag’ and is ‘cool’. But they know nothing about rhymes and they don’t know how to spit. They just act like the rappers here, they’re not living our lives"

- Vasco talking about K-Pop idols (via ppeoljit)

- ????? - some of these rappers are rappers because their company doesn’t know what to do with them - but some of these rappers actually wanna learn and are trying?? - idk but what do you know about rapping? what do you know about that struggle? - theyre not living out lives you say you’re not the one who has to constantly fight off bad connotations of what rap is do you - I’m so tired (Via gyutiebear)

#but what kills me are these k-rappers always trying to claim a struggle

SAY IT AGAIN FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK ROW

Quirky WOC 3/50: Amara la Negra (Diana Danelys De los Santos)

If you don’t think she is the cutest person on earth, you are wrong. Anyways, as her name suggest she is Black or dark . This is an interesting point because it gives glimpse into colorism that goes on to the island. Many times Latin@s are represented by light skinned/tan girls with straight hair but that is quite a misrepresentation of the diverse population of Latin@s especially in DR. Amara plays with music genres, sexuality, and cuteness to be an awesome quirky Spanish Language singer/dancer.

I love her!!!!

OKAY, LET’S TALK ABOUT ROBERT SMALLS (BECAUSE HE HAS A NAME, THANK YOU VERY MUCH).
ANYWAY.
Robert Smalls was born into slavery in 1839 and at the age of 12 his owner leased him out in Charleston, South Carolina. He gravitated towards working at the docks and on boats and eventually became the equivalent of a pilot, and in late 1861 he found himself assigned to a military transport boat named the CSS Planter.
On May 12, 1862, the white officers decided to spend the night on land. Smalls rounded up the enslaved crew and they hatched a plan, and once the officers were long gone they made a run for it, only stopping to pick up their families (who they notified) along the way. Smalls, disguised as the captain, steered the boat past Confederate forts (including Ft. Sumter) and over to the Union blockade, raising a white sheet his wife took from her job as a hotel maid as a flag of truce. The CSS Planter had a highly valuable code book and all manner of explosives on board.
Smalls ended up serving in the Union Navy and rose to the rank of captain there. He was also one of a number of individuals who talked to Abraham Lincoln about the possibility of African-American soldiers fighting for the Union, which became a reality.
After the war, Smalls bought his owner’s old plantation in Beaufort and even allowed the owner’s sickly wife to move back in until her death. He eventually served in the South Carolina House of Representatives (1865-1870), the South Carolina Senate (1871-1874), and the United States House of Representatives (1875-1879) and represented South Carolina’s 5th District from 1882-1883 and the 7th District from 1884-1887. He and other black politicians also fought against an amendment designed to disenfranchise black voters in 1895, but it unfortunately passed.
Smalls ended his public life by serving as U.S. Collector of Customs in Beaufort from 1889-1911. He died in 1915 at the age of 75.
And now you know Robert Smalls.

ROBERT SMALLS IS THE MAN.

I didn’t even know this , I salute this man.

Six Facts About Harriet Tubman
1. Harriet Tubman’s birth name was Aramita (“Minty”) Ross. She was born enslaved in Maryland sometime in 1820.
2. Tubman escaped slavery with her brother, Ben and Harry, on September 17, 1849.

3. Tubman is most famous for her role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, in which she led escaped slaves to freedom. Estimates vary, but Tubman is said to have helped anywhere from dozens to hundreds of slaves reach freedom. She was once quoted as saying, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
4. During the Civil War, Tubman worked for the Union army as a cook, nurse, and spy. She was also the first woman to lead an expedition in the war and guided the Combahee River Raid, which freed 700 slaves. Decades later, the raid would inspire a groundbreaking group of black feminists called the Combahee River Collective.
5. Tubman’s life has inspired countless works for art, including poems, comic books, and films.
6. This year marks that 100th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s death. Maryland has a series of commemorative events. 

The last one really hits me. She had only been dead for 100 years. 100 years. Like, white folks are going on and on about how slavery has been over for hundreds and hundreds of years.
But here is an escaped slave who liberated countless others that only died ONE HUNDRED YEARS ago. This is not the ancient past. This is still living history.

A few hours ago, information about who will cast as Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Eazy-E in the upcoming N.W.A biopic stormed the web. Dr. Dre will be played by Marcus Callender, while Eazy-E will be played by newcomer Jason Mitchell. Last week it was also revealed that Ice Cube's role will be played by his own son, O’Shea Jackson Jr. Still no word on who’ll be playing MC Ren or DJ Yella.
The biopic, Straight Outta Compton is set to come out on August 14, 2015.

black people together ♥

Not paying money to see this.
We didn’t forget how casting did black women for this.
I’ll catch it on bootleg.

Yes how they did black women was trashy. Won’t waste my money.

I would never waste time,money or energy watching this.

What would happen if there here were black time travelers lmfao

There would be SO many people I need to punch in the face

All the founding fathers

Lincoln

I’d take a shit on Ronald Reagan a couple times

Good lord it would be so much fun

I’d fuck Robert E. Lee’s ass up

King Leopold I’ll get fucked up

I’d smack the piss outta Susan B. Anthony 

man that shit would be fun

Punch Margaret Thatcher in the boobs

Fade Margaret Sanger on sight 

Pistol whip Christopher Columbus

I personally want to go back and tell the woman that accused Emmitt Till of whistling at her than she aint fucking fine all white i got my foot on her neck.

Yo if time travel was possible I’m heading straight back to 1491. Columbus & his homeys is getting domed, All the european monarchs’ castles are getting firebombed, I’m smuggling rifles to everyone on the west coast of Africa, & penicillin to everyone in the Americas.

Cut that shit off from jump

I’m pistol whipping all the crackers the bombed the church killing the four girls before they even make to the church.

Also stomping a mudhole into Byron De La Beckwith for killing Medgar Evers and walking around all smug and shit. 

I would warn the Black Panthers about J Hoover’s ole bitch ass and plan operation Black Reign. Hoover can get these hands for Cointel Pro. I would do a drive by all through the south hitting every KKK member. I’d take a trip to Tulsa,OK and arm every Black person with bullet proof vest, machine guns, and letting know the government gone drop a bomb so they should get their affairs in order.
