In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”

During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:

The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.

Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career

White tears lead directly to a Black woman losing job offers and money…


Tell me again how hurt white feelings are exactly the same as discrimination against POC…

She looks so intense in that first .gif! I’m not even gonna act like that’s not attractive as hell

7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:


  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

I’m going to be “New Black” for Halloween.








Where should I go to get my costume?

Where can I find a Colorless American themed store?

Probably in the same place Stacy Dash and them sold their souls.

Urban Outfitters

ROFL!!! Everyone keeps saying Urban Outfitters

It’s the one-stop-shop for people who want to say “I’ve Sold Out All POC And Want To Be Haunted By All My Ancestors. New Black For Life.”
