I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF HIS VINES.
Admittedly, I would absolutely find this hilarious if I didn’t know the simple fact that the smiling woman is the Prime Minister of Denmark!
The PM and Obama have met lots of times now …
… which is probably why they’re seated next to one another. I mean, come ON, obviously it’s not some random man-stealing bimbo that was placed next to the President of the United States.
But the media loves to pin women up against each other, so for good measure here’s a picture of all three smiling together and one of the two women alone…
Please, signal boost this and stop the idiotic scenario where these two intelligent and powerful women are being reduced to petty women that care only about the attention of a man - even if it is the President of the United States.
The more you know. Now, go forth an have an AWESOME day!
Kinda sad that this post is even necessary.
read an amazing article on how the reception of Michelle Obama’s “disapproving look” reinforces the stereotype about the “mad black woman”. It’s pretty annoying how people simplify her and put her in a box
^ ALL OF THIS
I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.
I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.
There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.
I was actually thinking can a black woman anything without becoming a meme?
Can black women ever publicly show emotion beyond happiness without her always being relegated as an “angry black woman.” Or why can Black women publicly exhibit anger or annoyance (a natural human emotion) without it being linked to the “angry black woman” stereotype?
A friend of mine just had this conversation with me, in regards to how she acts at the workplace and how she has to actively stop herself from showing fucking emotion because she knows people will automatically label her as an angry black woman (she works in corporate). She has seen white women at the workplace flip out with little to no repercussion, and she spoke up once (and it was absolutely warranted) and was subsequently terminated.
Police in Colorado say that an Aurora man will not be charged after he admitted pulling his gun on a woman with four children — including a disabled child — because she was taking too long to park her car.
Shakia Bushtold KMGH-TVthat she was waiting for a handicap parking space at a local Walmart recently and a man behind her started honking his horn.
When she got out to tell him to go around because she was waiting for the handicap space, she said that he started yelling obscenities and pulled out a gun.
“He showed it to me in the air, then held it to his chest and said, ‘B****, I have a gun. I will shoot your a**,’” she recalled. “My 10-year old son was saying ‘Mommy, he’s going to shoot you. I don’t want him to shoot you.’”
Bush said that she screamed that the man was “pulling a gun on a woman” before writing down his license plate number and calling 911.
“That’s when he got back into his car and took off,” she said.
Police identified the suspect as Justin West. But in an interview, he insisted that he had pulled the gun because he thought “people were going to jump out and attack him.”
According to his version of events, he told Bush, “I have a gun and will defend myself.”
“What was he defending himself from?” Bush wondered. “A mom and four kids? He was angry over a traffic incident. He hopped out of his car first and started yelling and screaming at me.”
“I think he felt a woman was talking back to him, so he needs to prove a point,” she said
Aurora police explained to KMGH-TV that West could not be charged because no gun could clearly be seen in the Walmart surveillance video.
“I really feel that people need to be held accountable for their actions,” Bush lamented. “My children were scared that something was going to happen to them.”
Former Denver prosecutor Karen Steinhauser told KMGH-TV that West could be charged for felony menacing for just holding a gun up to his chest and issuing threats.
“It’s menacing if your intent was to put someone in fear of their life,” she pointed out. “The question investigators have to ask is, ‘Was he in fear of imminent harm?’”
The mother and her children witness this man pull a gun on them in a parking lot. He admits he pulls a gun on them in said parking lot…and yet law enforcement doesn’t have enough to charge with? Color me skeptical.
"how are you going to look with all those tattoos when you’re old??"
rad as hell
Reblogging this babe
reblogging for the last shot
fun fact: she got them all after she turned like 37. all of them.“She said: ‘I love my tattoos but men don’t seem to feel the same. My appearance seems to scare them off. ‘I’ve only ever been on one date in seven years. That was through a tattoo-lovers dating site - but it didn’t last. ‘I think when men first look at me, they think I’m a bit rough. They mutter ‘look at the state of her’ under their breath. They don’t bother to get to know me.’ ”
ink look sick as hell at her age hopefully mine look that dope at that age .
