you can just tell that Nicki Minaj is the kind of person that when you’re telling a story and everyone else in the group is talking over you, she’s making direct eye contact with you and paying extra attention so that you don’t get discouraged and stop mid-story

this is actually so true

…..I’m so afraid for this baby. I wonder how they are treating her considering they didn’t want a black child to begin with

The article says that they love and accept her and that their suit is based out of concern for her specifically.

Essentially, the mother who carried her, as well as her partner, have bonded with her, but they have anxieties because they were unprepared for the racial nuance required for such a parenting experience. They go to Black hair salons out of town because they don’t know how to do her hair, and they worry about how to educate her properly about herself and the history in general, and keep her feeling loved and safe. But they also worry because their white family already has issues with them being gay, let alone their racial insensitivities. They recognized, thankfully, that while they may be able to avoid certain conversations about being lesbians by way of omission, that there would be no way for their daughter to obfuscate her mixed race identity. Nor should she have to be under such pressure anyway.

They have been given recommendation by their therapist to move to a racially diverse community and I think that’s what they’re seeking recompense for, financial means to do just that, so their daughter will have community support.

So thankfully, it sounds like she is very loved and cared for and they just want what’s best for her. They are under a lot of stress though because they recognize they are ill-equipped to deal with racism (the mother said shed only met her first Black acquaintance in college… so they are truly in an all white community as of now) but I’m glad they are aware because they will take consistent action, which is more than a lot of white parents of mixed Black children are willing to do, unfortunately.

Hopefully, they will be prepared for possible emotional damage that will arise when she finds out about this lawsuit. It may very well read, to her, she wasn’t meant to be born.

Fox 8 Cleveland angry with LKWD Music Fest after Communist musician calls for end to capitalism on live TV

FOX is tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

FOX News: “Well, Boots, tell us a little bit about your band and the lineup people are going to hear today?” asked Fox 8 reporter Autumn Ziemba.

RILEY: Well, we’re a punk/funk/Communist revolution band.

FOX News: OK.

RILEY: And we are from Oakland, California, and we make everyone dance while we’re telling them about how we need to get rid of the system.

FOX News: Mmm.

RILEY: How exploitation is the primary contradiction in capitalism. And that if we want to express our power, we’re going to have to be more radical in our actions.

this is an all-Black band, from Oakland, and they’re called "The Coup." *buys CD*

Watch Fox News lose control

What happened to freedom of speech?

What? Rush Limbaugh get to say whatever dumb thing he wants and the rest of us have to hope we get the mic in our hands and then we can’t even speak our minds?

"I don’t like when people say that you can’t stop loving someone, that you either always will or never did. I don’t think that’s true. I loved you, past tense. I don’t love you, present tense. I loved the idea of you I created in my head. I loved the nice things you said and did. I loved the way you were always smiling at me. And I loved you so much that I thought it would never stop, I thought that if I couldn’t love you I would die. You’re not that magnificent person I imagined, you did terrible things that took away any belief I had in myself and in love. You were undeserving of the happiness I brought into your life. So don’t let anyone say that you’ll never stop loving him.
Because here I am, not loving you."

— Wow. (via modernmethadone)
