Now Playing Tracks


I just stumbled upon the fantastic web series Til Lease Do Us Part, and now I have to shout it from the Tumblr rooftops! Or — whatever. The point is, this series is amaaazing and y’all should watch it!

It’s about Shannon and Mikka, who move in together when they are in the happy lovey dovey bubble of new coupledom … and then break up, but decide to keep living together for financial reasons. This decision gets extra awkward once they both start dating new people. The banter is hilarious and weird and great, the actresses are spectacular, and I have to admit, I spend most of my time watching going, “BUT YOU HAVE TO GET BACK TOGETHER! JUST WORK ON YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS! YOUR HOPEFULLY JUST ON-PAUSE LOVE IS SO HILARIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL.”

Anyway, it is a festival of romcom magic, and I just figured Tumblr should be informed. :)

Here is the link for the full series YouTube playlist so far.




None of this shit is funny.

All of this is self hate.

All of this is dehumanizing.

All of this is foolish ignorance.

This is not only disgusting, but appalling as well; exactly how can we succeed as a community when you put down the very women who bring you up?

These “men” are children.

If you do not support black women, you do not support black power. Black power is not just for black men. If you do not support black women.. Congratulations! You have ‘slave mentality’.

The hatred of black women is taught by the white oppressor, older generations of black men, the media, and at some times other black women. As a whole, we cannot grow as a community if you HATE more then half of it.

Often when colorism is discussed in the black community, men and some women attribute darker skin as manly and attach racial slurs (non reclaim) to them.

Having malice towards darker skin does not make you above any person, and just to set the record straight: DATING, MARRYING, or FUCKING a white woman does not make you closer to the white man. You are black, that is who you are and that is who you will be, that is your identifier. NO MATTER where you will go you are black. You ancestors and your grandparents fought for the right to love one another.

So let me ask you this:
Is your mother an ugly monkey?
Is your sister an illiterate darkie?
Is your DAUGHTER, with skin the color of gold tier melanin UNWORTHY of human love and emotion? Should she be subject to the hate you spew from you ignorant lips? Are her tears useless, because she inherited YOUR skin?

For those who participate in such behavior, what is your skin tone? 9/10 they are as dark if not darker then the women they belittle.

This ignorance has got to STOP, if not for our current  generation…. Then the next.

Anyone remember when I got completely sick of dealing with self hate? I do #TBT

Here’s how it works: Parrish allegedly visited Apple Stores and tried to buy products with four different debit cards, which were all closed by his respective financial institutions. When his debit card was inevitably declined by the Apple Store, he would protest and offer to call his bank — except, he wasn’t really calling his bank.

So, the complaint says, he would offer the Apple Store employees a fake authorization code with a certain number of digits, which is normally provided by credit card issuers to create a record of the credit or debit override. (Business Insider, like the Tampa Bay Times, refuses to publish the number of digits “so as not to inspire anyone.”)

But that’s the problem with this system: as long as the number of digits is correct, the override code itself doesn’t matter.
