if I see one more fucking white person cross out “black excellence” and put “people excellence” with this long ass paragraph as to why “black excellence” is a racist phrase to non black people, I’m going to fucking scream. it’s fucking black excellence because they’re black, and excellent, get the fuck out if you have a problem with that. damn, we can’t have shit.

i don’t care if it’s a only a joke, please don’t make comments about how someone’s choice of field of study isn’t going to take them anywhere because it can be a great source of stress and your joke won’t help.

also, destroy the idea that we should only pursue dreams if they are likely to give you status in this capitalist piece-of-shit society.

White folks on tumblr be like, “Please be kind to moths. They are doing their best and deserve respect and kindness. Never step on a flower because they are sensitive and have feelings. Also, why can’t I say the n word?”

you forgot

It’s good to know that we weren’t the only ones driven crazy by people who “axe” questions.

Okay, see, we talked about this linguisitic phenomenon in my grammar class. I don’t remember what it’s called, but it happens with other words, too - my professor used an example of “uncomfortable.” When you say it out loud, most likely, it sounds more like “un-comf-ter-ble,” thus mixing up the position of the r and the t, like how the k and the s are mixed in this speech pattern. However, not many people are out here acting high and mighty because someone said “uncomfterble” like they are with “ax,” and that has absolutely everything to do with academic biases - because “ax” is associated mostly with Black people (and occasionally lower-class whites), it’s viewed as “improper” speech, whereas most people, even middle & upper class white people who are thought to speak the most ~proper~ version of English, say “uncomfterble.”
And a quick Google search yields that even Chaucer used “axe” to mean “ask” within his writing. (Source) (Source)
tl;dr actually caring about whether someone says “ask” ~”correctly”~~ is rooted in racist & classist biases of language so, consider, not. 

I was mocked entirely through high school when i said “axe “. For years I hesitated and said “pondered” or “questioned” because I didn’t want to be laughed at.

WHY IS SHE SOFTER THAN CHARMIN THO?

WHY IS SHE MORE SENSITIVE THAN BABY WIPES?

WHY IS SHE MORE WINEY THAN BAREFOOT MOSCATO

WHY SHE BE A CRYBABY LIKE SOUR GUM

WHY CAN’T SHE TAKE AN L HIT IT AND PASS IT

Cause she be that Aggy.

lmao 

she is such a little bitch, doesnt deserve to be in the Rap Game at all…but there are still people who will ride for her like she is the shit. she just a tool for other people in the business to make money, she isnt a real artist to me. 

She cries every time someone says something about her. The same girl who told a paparazzi she hopes he gets Ebola and dies cries every single time someone says anything about her.

-Rapper: Iggy blinked one too many times backstage so I don’t like her.
-Iggy: why would you say something like that? We shook hands and hugged backstage and then my manager saved your grandmother’s kitten from a tree. How could you be so rude? I baked you a muffin and knitted you a sweater and you still found it in your soul to speak badly about me? I don’t understand.

DOES SHE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TYLER AT ALL LMAO???? HE JOKES ON EVERYONE BITCH YOU AIN’T SPECIAL.

Eh, I don’t like when people be like “black girls watch out cause white girls getting booty these days” cause to a black girl’s ears it kinda sounds like “watch out because your only value is your fetishized body and once that’s gone you’ll truly be worthless”.

i’m just gonna leave this here.
