White “allies”

yup.

But if it was “white power” she’d be racist and probably beat. But you know, it’s whatever.

Black power ≠ white power
Black power = Resistance. A response to the abuse and subjugation of white supremacy. Recognizing the humanity of Blackness. Black people uplifting themselves from the margins. A rallying cry of self-love, self-actualization and autonomy. Black power does not mean the subjugation and abuse or torment of white people. It has never meant this and it never will. Show me the examples of “Black power” chants stripping whites of anything.
white power = white supremacy, subjugation, abuse and torment of everyone not white. Anywhere chants of “white power” ring, hatred follows behind. Look no further than the people who scream “white power” and why they say it.
This stuff is not hard to understand or figure out.
The fact that a white woman is in that Ferguson crowd unharmed is proof positive that a chant of “Black power” is not about dehumanizing, abusing, torturing or subjugating white people. Black people are not even in the position to do that. 
On the other hand, ask yourself, what would happen to a lone Black person in a crowd of white supremacists chanting “white power”? Would that black person be safe?
The ignorant think “Black power” means enacting to white people what “white power” has enacted to Black people.



^^^^^THAT GIF ALL THE WAY

White people stay making shit about them.

The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to

and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human

"Femininity is depicted as weakness, the sapping of strength, yet masculinity is so fragile that apparently even the slightest brush with the feminine destroys it."
