Do you suppose ABC is placing an order of Black-ish as a means of distracting the show's targeted audience from the current civil unrest? Thus, giving people something other than revolution against white supremacist oppression to talk about?
Black people can and do multi task
We are capable of having several conversations about myriad of topics at once while being cognizant of the importance of each.
Social engineering 101: Sports and entertainment are the reasons why the United States hasn’t experienced a revolution, in the last few decades - Bread & Circuses. The fact that anyone would think that a population can be politically responsible while deluged by a ubiquitous entertainment industrial complex, is proof that the distraction is working.
This ankh really thinks you can’t have fun and be revolutionary at the same time. How do we fight for years to prove we’re multifaceted human beings to reduce ourselves to caricatures of black panthers and mlk on a velvet poster on some fuck boys wall?
no one watched tv or listened to the radio until 2014
period. They just planned, marched, grew beards and afros, and had raw sex inbetween.
I guess we don’t have to worry about that ever-increasing cost of basic-to-life things
or the dying out of career-track jobs (of all ranges)
and probably the defunding of education at all levels (including but not limited to public, higher, and in-jail programs) we can ignore
You know, it’s just the TV and sports that’s keeping people from rioting
Not like there’ve been folks out on the streets, the internet, and everywhichfuckingway over police brutality since FOREVER
not like folks have been reaching out through all forms of media to build community and self-educate
nope. none of that’s been going on
we all just sitting back watching the game or some other shit on TV

Another flag burns.#shawshooting
holy shit. no noo no no no i do NOT care the cause, i don’t CARE what the supreme court says you do NOT fucking burn the flag what the FUCK is your problem. disrespectful bags of shit oh my GOD
That thing where a certain group of people are more outraged over a piece of polysynthetic fiber than the horrific loss of Black life in this country.
^OH MY GOD. BOLDED.
white people are so godless.
The character assassination begins. His body’s not even cold yet and white America is hard at work making the victim the villain and soothing itself back to sleep with comforting narratives.
Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
as usual →
every time i’m with 2 other black women at a restaurant or bar, some white guy comes over and wants to unload his racial shit on us.
like damn, can i sing karaoke in peace without you columbusing our conversation and time?
