butthurt white people

I love how they rlly hate to see someone doing better than them & then put it off on race like if a white dude had the same achievements no one would be doing anything but sucking his dick and patting him on the back like this is some top tier hater shit & it’s so funny

White people love to bring up affirmative action as if their entire lives aren’t a fucking breeze

They’re acting like this kid didn’t put in work to get where he is though. They literally think it was handed to him because he’s black???? Yeah that’s definitely how America works

they’re so mad

I’m thrown off by the Asian hatin

When white people get upset about affirmative action, conveniently forgetting why it needed to be implemented to begin with. Oy vey.

Did you read The Washington Post article about this?

Fucking disgusting.

Another reason why respectability politcis is bullshit…because all that bullshit white liberals and white conservatives love spew about “If everyone just worked hard, and stopped complaining blah blah” and we we do “Oh you just got it because you’re black.”…..take note followers. This is why respectability politics don’t work it doesn’t matter how hard to play their game, you are black and as long as you’re black you’re never gonna sit at their table period. Also check how quick white folks went to the good minority shit with Asians, and look how quick the anti-black racism came out with the “I’m asian and I didn’t get half of what this black kid got.”……they are so hurt, to see a black kid shining.

African children are not an accessory. by @vohandas

 

 

I have never been this angry in a while. I literally can’t believe what I’m seeing. I log on to tumblr and few scrolls down what do I see? This. A post by justgirlywishes ​, a blog about girly bucket list  things, that girl like and/or want to do. Things such as “baking a chocolate cake”, “traveling the world” “Looking cute and hoping he would notice” and my “favorite” “Adopting an African Child.” WHAT? I’m not going to channel all my anger towards them alone because I realize they are not the only people guilty of this.  However, I am tired, so tired of people, mostly white celebrities going to Africa and literally picking up a baby and just saying “yup, i want this one” (…it’s that easy If you’re a white American or European and have money) and then parading the child around to the media. “Look at the good deed I have done, look at me, I have gone allllll the way to Africa and saved this baby from disease and famine.” 

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not against adoption. However, adopting a child and dehumanizing them because you have the money to do so and all your friends are doing it… is wrong. Do people realize that these children are people also? Do they realize that adopting a child takes alot of responsibility, just as it would to give birth and raise one? The part that makes me angry is the fact they go to developing countries with cameras and press, and exploiting the adoption process for their own sake. If you really felt it in your heart that you wanted to make a difference in a child’s life and wanted to offer them an opportunity at things they might never be able to have due to their unfortunate situation, would you really need the media? To me that raises a lot of questions. These are the same people who hide their own kids behinds doors because they want them to live “normal lives away from the tabloids”, however, the adopted child? Bring them out! take all the photos you need. “___ have adopted a child from ___” “____traveled to rural village and brings back baby ___”

Between 2003 and 2010, said the report, the number of children adopted from Africa increased three-fold. During that time, 33,434 children were adopted internationally from Africa’s top 12 source countries — the vast majority of these adopted children ended up in the United States.

Celebrities’ adoptions of African children have been glamorized to an extent, oversimplifying the practice and neglecting to address some of its major issues.” (Jacey Fortin)

 

All I’m saying is, please. Do not adopt a child because it’s “cool” to do so. Do not adopt an African baby or an Asian baby because they are -cheaper- to adopt.  These are all wrong reasons and It is not fair at all to the child; I would hope when it comes to the adoption process, people took into consideration, the child as a person and not as anything less

I open the table for a discussion for anyone who would like to voice their opinion on this..

white people will weep for the starving children in Africa, they might even adopt themselves a little brown baby from another country

but will not shed a tear for the lives of black and brown children kidnapped, abused, and murdered in their own country

disgusting

10 Black Scientists You Should Know

by 

1. Ernest Everett Just

In 1916, Ernest Everett Just became the first black man to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in experimental embryology, but perhaps his greatest legacy is the sheer amount of scientific papers he authored during his career.

Just was born in 1883 and raised in Charleston, S.C., where he knew from an early age he was headed for college. He studied zoology and cell development at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., and worked as a biochemist studying cells at Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts. He became a biology instructor at Howard University before finishing his Ph.D., and would spend 20 summers also working at Woods Hole. From 1920 to 1931 he was awarded a biology fellowship by the National Research Council. Just pioneered research into cell fertilization, division, hydration and the effects of carcinogenic radiation on cells.

Frustrated that no major American university would hire him because of racism, Just relocated to Europe in 1930. Once there, he wrote the bulk of his 70 professional papers, as well as two books. He died of pancreatic cancer in 1941 [sources: BiographyGeneticsGwinnet County Public Schools].

2. Patricia Bath

Patricia Bath improved the vision of generations thanks to her invention for cataract treatment.

Born in 1942, Bath’s educational achievements began early. She graduated high school in only two years, then earned a bachelor’s degree from Hunter College and a medical degree from Howard University before accepting an ophthalmology fellowship at Columbia University. It was during this fellowship that Bath’s research uncovered some staggering statistics: When compared with her other patients, blacks were eight times more likely to develop glaucoma and twice as likely to go blind from it. She set her sights on developing a process to increase eye care for people unable to pay, now called community ophthalmology, which operates worldwide. Bath became the first African-American to complete a residency in ophthalmology in 1973, and the first woman to join the ophthalmology department at UCLA in 1975.

By 1981, Bath was hard at work on her most notable invention, a laser probe that precisely treated cataracts with less pain to the patient. Using the laserphaco probe she devised, she was able to restore sight to patients who had been blind for as long as 30 years. In 1988, she became the first black female doctor to receive a patent for a medical purpose. Since her retirement in 1993, Bath continues to advocate for the medically underserved and has focused on the use of technology to offer medical services in remote regions [source: Biography].

3. Marie Maynard Daly

Marie Maynard Daly was a pioneer in the study of the effects of cholesterol and sugar on the heart and the first black woman to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry in the United States. She was born in 1921, at a time when minority women often were denied educational and employment opportunities, but she didn’t allow prejudice to stop her pursuit of the sciences. By 1942, she had earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with honors from Queens College in New York. She went on to complete a master’s degree, also in chemistry, just one year later.

It was while earning her doctoral degree from Columbia University that Daly’s research really began to gel. She discovered how internally produced compounds help digestion and spent much of her career as a professor researching cell nuclei. Importantly, she discovered the link between high cholesterol and clogged arteries, which helped advance the study of heart disease. She also studied the effects of sugar on arteries, and cigarette smoking on lung tissue. Daly established a scholarship fund for black students at Queens College in 1988. She died in 2003 [sources: African-American Pioneers in ScienceChemical Heritage Foundation].

4. David Harold Blackwell

David Harold Blackwell was one of the world’s most notable statisticians, but as a child he didn’t particularly like math. That was until he met the right teacher who opened a numerical world to him.

Blackwell, born in 1919, grew up in southern Illinois and by 16 was enrolled at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At 22, he graduated from his home state university with a doctoral degree in mathematics and then studied at Princeton. Although Blackwell aspired to a teaching position, racial bias closed doors; he was denied posts at Princeton and at the University of California at Berkeley. However, he was offered a position at Howard University. (Berkeley later offered Blackwell a teaching job, and he became the university’s first black tenured professor in 1954).

While at Howard, Blackwell studied game theory and how it applied to decision-making in the government and private sectors during summers at RAND Corp. He became the United States’ leading expert on the subject, authoring a widely respected textbook on game theory, as well as research that resulted in several theorems named for him. One such theory, which explains how to turn rough guesses into on-target estimates, is known as the Rao-Blackwell theorem and remains an integral part of modern economics. In 1965, he became the first African-American to be inducted into the National Academy of Sciences. He died in 2010 [sources: SandersSorkin].
