withquestionablewit: Being queer doesn’t excuse you from privilege. You can be a white queer racist, a queer male misogynist, a cis queer trans*phobe, a wealthy queer classist, or any number of other oppressive things and the sooner you educate yourself to this the better off our whole community will be, because contrary to media depiction, queer people aren’t all white middle-class gay men!

In the cover story of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, he says that when he and his songwriting partners came...
so lemme get this straight
slay-z: white people talking about race = progressive black people talking about race = race baiting
the-uncensored-she: White people hate Kanye West because he incorporates the ugly reality of being Black in Amerikkka within his lyrics. White “feminists” are pissed that Beyonce won’t let them— snorts— run her career and public image. Notice a pattern here? Black celebrities aren’t allowed to run their own damn shows without white approval…and whining.

Black Women: Black men need to do better.

Black Men: Maybe you hoes are hanging out with the wrong black men, because I love all my black queens.
Black Women: ....Holy shit what is wrong with you
Black Men: You are letting whitey tear us apart!
