mixunit:

Thank God We Solved Racism…

This epitomizes why the politics of respectability is so pointless and a ridiculous way to solve racism.
O’Reiley himself claims that if black men dress right, stay in school, and etc that they will be treated with respect. And yet, he blatantly disrespects a Columbia Professor dressed in a suit by reducing him to a cocaine dealer. This is how white people work. They give conditions for you to be treated with humanity, but even when you meet those arbitrary conditions you’re still treated as less than human.
And black people need to become wiser to these tactics. Because then Don Lemon wouldn’t have made the silly statements he made.

Can we take a moment to appreciate the new Miss France, Flora Coquerel.  This half Beninoise beauty will represent France at the Miss Universe pageant in 2014.  Unfortunately, she has already been subjected to racist backlash through social media.  The International Business student has responded by saying, “I’m proud to represent a multicultural France”.  She is pictured with her mother in the last photograph.
