teaching white boys black women exist for their happiness from the very start
i really fucking hate the way white people spell out/write/speak AAVE like god damn
but she’s STILL on the box. like, that’s what i don’t understand. 2013, and they still got a slave mascot.
They gave her a makeover so it’s totes OK now everyone. **eye roll**
because they own us forever, basically
No you’re all wrong and projecting bitterness on to something that’s completely harmless you my gents need a good barbiturate and a nap
Why is it that whenever we’re having a conversation, an arrogant White boy appears?
Are you serious? If so, why are you here? We’re talking about a caricature, a figment of the White imagination created during American slavery so that Whites could believe that Black women were happy as slaves.
We’re talking about Mammy, who was used to sell molasses, detergents, and other food and domestic products. We’re talking about how Mammy is still selling shit at the grocery store. Of course, you don’t see the harm in it. YOU’RE A WHITE MAN! You get to see yourself as a business ceo, and a superhero, a lord of the ring, or a vampire….. you’re not always just “The Help” or “The Butler”. You get to eat the pancakes in the advertisement.. not serve them.
So again, why are you here when you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about and have nothing to add to the conversation but some paternal nonsense about how we need a nap??? Yeah.. sorry we’re not happy and smiling darkies and have feelings and are actually disgusted about how society portrays us.
Don’t you have some more self-pitying poetry to write or something?
I mean, I’ll seriously never understand what provokes some White people to interject the way they do, as if your opinion is not already loud and clear. Trust me.. we already hear you. We hear you at the grocery store. We hear you on the television. We hear you at the movie theater. We hear you just like our ancestors heard you when you made this shit up during slavery. We know you think it’s okay.
