this blog is to call out on the stereotypes of jamiaca/jamaicans

I, uh… might have gone on a pretty long rant on my Twitter just now. Here’s a small sample of my frustration.

Rap artist, Philippe Prosper uses RACIALLY CHARGED, daring images and lyrics to attack all stereotypes, calling us all out on how silly and damaging they can be.

IMAGES of BLACK FACE, WHITE FACE, YELLOW FACE intertwined with controversial characters: a white oppressive colonialist, blacks gangsters with fried chicken and watermelon, and dog eating, martial arts fighting, asian nerds, this video exposes HATE in a satirical, poignant way.

White face is not a thing  but good vid

I don’t deserve to become a white person’s play thing, my mother tongue is not a play thing, my culture is not a play thing.

Does anyone have resources they can send our way on skin lightening?
As a follower pointed out, we don’t give it enough attention or the advice that people need.

—Jay

Signal boost. Can anyone send them any helpful resources from a noncommercial and anti-colorism perspective?

White slaves masters raped black women and turned their backs on their offspring. They are the original dead beat dads.

"We need to protect all women not just Black women!!!"

Will you just say what the fuck you mean

Cause by all women you don’t mean Indigenous women, Latinas, or Asian women.

Just say you only want white womanhood to be cherished and protected at the expense of Black women.

Cause everyone already knows that’s what you mean anyway.

Millicent Small, better known as Millie, singer and songwriter.

Her 1964 cover of “My Boy Lollipop” was doubly significant in British pop music history. It was the first major hit for Island Records (although it was actually released on the Fontana label because Chris Blackwell, Island’s owner, did not want to overextend its then-meagre resources; in the U.S. the record appeared on the Smash Records subsidiary of Mercury Records), and Small was the first artist to have a hit that was recorded in the bluebeat style (she was billed as “The Blue Beat Girl” on the single’s label in the U.S.). This was a music genre that had recently emerged from Jamaica, and was a direct ancestor of reggae. [X]
