Tamera Mowry Responds to Critics of Her Interracial Marriage ( x )
YOOOOOOO that second insult though. SHIT
See, comments like this against interracial relationships are anti-Black bc calling this woman “the white man’s whore” implies her entire identity is sexual, frames a Black woman in terms of whiteness & denies her agency of choice.
Saying she’s giving it to him for free implies that there will always be a price on a Black woman’s body as if she’s a vehicle whose value can depreciate.
This is ignorance. Nothing for it.
This whole exchange between her and Tia just destroyed me because it’s like neither one of them could “get it right” because they’re biracial themselves. It’s just… All of this is awful.

We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet.
…Humanity requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another. So why are we viewed as less than equal? These old attitudes are drilled into us from the very beginning. We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible."

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men."

And let’s face it, Jon, there’s no way this man could be Santa. Because the moment white folks saw a Black man with a big old bag coming down the chimney, it’d be time to grab a gun and stand your ground.
I’ve been waiting for this one
