All my life I’ve felt like I was living my life I’m the wrong body. My gender was almost correct (I switched to critical-female last month), but my race and ethnicity was completely wrong. I was born white with pure European ancestry, but I’ve always found myself liking rap music, fried chicken, and I could run really fast. I loved basketball and watermelon has been my favorite scent of all time. As I grew older, society and media taught me that these interests are not typical of a white person such as myself. My interests were more normal for black people. I felt ashamed to eat chicken in front of my family, scared to wear my favorite watermelon body mist, and scared to show my basketball skills on the playground (because I was white and a female and we all know how females aren’t supposed to show their athletic skill in public) When I was in high school I really wanted to join the track team but I was so scary to try out because I knew I would be ridiculed by my white peers for betraying my own race and by my black peers for trying to encroach onto their territory. I allowed my racial dysphoria to dictate my life for too long.
Last week I have came to the realization that just because my skin is white and I am “genetically” (genetics is a social construction) Caucasian, that doesn’t mean I am white. I’m black. All the signs are there and I feel black, therefore, I am trans-black. Yesterday I decided to embrace my new identity and wear blackface out in pubic. I went to the mall so I could buy some outfits that were less white and conservative and guess what… I faced nothing but oppression and ignorance. I was told I was a racist biggot by black and white people. Why wold I be racist against my own race??? I’ve never felt so horrible in my life. People have no idea how much I’ve suffered my whole life, hiding who I really am from everyone. I have no friends of family for support and nobody knows the real me. They have no idea how much courage it took for me to wear my blackface out un public. No, it’s not blackface, it’s my identity. All these cis-ethnic scum degraded me for finally wearing my identity on my face. What I hope to accomplish from this post is to prove to the world that trans-black is real and we have real emotions. So please read and share my story and help me educate the oppressors out there.
It’s not racist, guys. She’s rejecting her whiteness and her privilege!
You go girl. Destroy those power structures!
Tim Wise, if this is your real tumblr I have zero respect for you after this post. As an aspiring sociologists and as a black woman this is sick and disgusting. This privileged little girl is literally stereotyping black people into one dumbass box of hooligans who “love fried chicken, watermelon, playing basketball, and can run fast”. I really did think you were an astute sociologist. It is so beyond disgraceful for you to reblog this. This girl is gonna go right home, wash off her black face and still have her privilege at the end of the day and think that blackness is only those simplistic constructs she discusses. So for you to endorse this garbage is beyond my comprehension. Also trans-black is not a thing. STOP.
The fuck is this?
this bitch said “trans-black” tf?
I didn’t want to believe she was being serious at first, but omg
tf is this
Drop her off in the hood and see how “trans-black” she really is.
This shit never ends.
It never ends.
Lawd please show us your presence
This has to be a joke. Some kind of joke. Who is that mind numbingly stupid?
Apparently the OP cause I’m buggin right now.
random girl on instagram: Ya girl does her thing in the kitchen #yesicancook
plate: *overcooked baked tilapia, kraft mac and cheese, a slice of texas toast garlic bread, and a ”salad” consisting of iceberg lettuce one slice of tomato, a bunch of cheese and ranch drizzled over it on a styrofoam plate*
when I see this on my feed I just scroll by and a lil’ chortle escapes from my mouth.
Today was an exceptional day.
white folks have some fucking nerve
Wow. Whites are just out of control
What. The. Entire. FUCK.
Lawd this is real
This is pitiful
-___- But they cried over a black chick playing rapunzel on OUAT 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒
Ttyl leaving planet earth lol k bye
White people are wild and flagrant enough to continue pulling this kind of bullshit.
Oh my god, they’ll get all pissed off over a black Captain America (which has been cannon before) but will say nothing about erasing entire cultures and art of of history.
This is why I’m okay with owning up that I’m part of an awful group. There’s no guilt here, just exasperation. I’m done listening to anyone who every complains about a character having their race changed.

Lemme reblog again and let you know why casting that white woman as the female lead in “Drive” was so fucking wrong and fucked up.
Director Nicolas Winding Refn literally gave Carey Mulligan the part because she “seemed pure,” like someone he wanted to protect.
No, really. He literally said that shit.
These traits were ones he literally did not consider a Latina for. He picked her specifically because he fit that damsel in distress imagine that’s been coded as white. Latinas were not even given the opportunity to audition for the role.
Let me post this again so people can see how we continuously allow (require?) movies to whitewash and erase POC out of media/our consciousness
what is shoot up schools?
What Is “Pay For Nudes”?
What is “ride bikes in the rain”
What is “fuck their pets”
What is “dance offbeat”?
what is not combing or washing your hair for 7 years and calling it dreads
what is not season their food?
What is “wear crocs”?
What is ‘buy overpriced items covered in paisleys’?
Why is it that the most regular, down to earth, generally unextraordinary white people are the ones who are like, “Yeah, white people totally have it better than minorities in America. Duh.”
But the supposedly cultured peace and love revolutionaries with flower crowns and hipster blogs be the main ones saying the n word and wearing war bonnets?
I don’t want happy weddings I don’t want companies sticking little rainbows on stuff I don’t want allies flooding the streets at Pride for ‘support’
I want homes and clothes and hormones and medical care and education and legal protection and access to shared history and community and safety and respect for ALL my LGBT+ siblings.

who has ever thought this ever
Don’t let your children drink water it might make them think drinking other clear liquids is okay do you want your child drinking bleach
don’t let your children walk, it might make them think its okay to walk away from home
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure not even people who use heroin believe it is beneficial.
Don’t let your child breathe air. Studies have shown thatin the event of a fire, children who breathe in air are much more likely to breathe in smoke than children who’ve never breathed air.
Don’t have a child. 100% of children grow up and die. You’re literally condemning your own children to die.
