ONE THING YOU SHOULD NEVER CALL AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

There are many ways to kindly and respectfully compliment the way a woman looks. But one descriptor that should be left out of such comments? “Exotic.”

Cristen Conger of the How Stuff Works podcast, Stuff Mom Never Told You, takes on the topic of “exotic” beauty.

Watch the full video with Conger explaining how Lupita Nyong’o was “extocized” during the 2014 Oscar season here.

but…who are any of you and have you ever been invited to anything on this level? multiple times over? performed for millions? had a lead role on broadway? i guess what i’m asking is… what are y’all doing besides trying to throw shade? she’s paid, loving life, and living her dream… and a sister to your favorite performers. the real shade is you all CLEARLY know her and actively seek out chances to “read” at a first grade level. you’re reaching. instead of trying to clown her, maybe you should take a few notes… cause…

And in THAT order.

Most of these kids aren’t even on LaTavia’s level tbh so they really can’t be saying shit about Michelle.

The michelle jokes were cute at first but they’re not anymore. Like frfr, she stays in her lane so well. She never comes for anybody or offends anyone. All she’s worried about is her, god, bey, kelly, solange, blue, etc. and getting her coins. That’s all she worried about but yall go on and be pressed trynna figure out how you finna pay your rent by the 2nd of next month while she’s sitting somewhere tropical for these coming fall and winter months.

As if Michelle cares what y’all hating ass trollops think. She crying all the way to the bank to collect that DC3 money.

port o’ rico

As a native spaniard that’s lived in the United States I can unfortunately confirm some people legit think this

“I went through it all on set: I fell in love with a woman, and I watched my life play out on screen. And now, as we are gearing up for the release of season 2, it feels liberating and appropriate to live my life in front of you.”

Is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me.

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.

Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.

The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.

Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.
