Tamera Mowry Responds to Critics of Her Interracial Marriage ( x )

YOOOOOOO that second insult though. SHIT

And here’s the thing that gets me, she ONLY speaks of love. She doesn’t insult black men, or speak of black men or white men as the alternative or better option, she speaks of love. 

That’s so sad, because it is love. Not an, “I don’t like black men because…”. 

Im crying

I’m almost crying over this. Tamera Mowry is a sweetheart. I had NO idea she was getting so much grief over this! It’s ridiculous! I just want to give her a hug right now.

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

Seriously, go listen to this.

The racist response to the Spelling Bee is further proof America isn’t ready to talk about minority success

On May 29, they became co-champions of an especially hard-fought Scripps National Spelling Bee.

In the past few years, the 89-year-old competition has seen a striking pattern in which Indian-American contestants have lifted the winner’s trophy eight consecutive times and in 13 of the past 17 outings. Their streak feeds into years of conversation around race, achievement and immigrant success — all tied to problematic notions of what it means to be “American.”

This is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen. @lavernecox is on the cover of Essence Magazine! The enormity of this in the Black Community!! She has been so brilliant and generous and graceful from rallies to the Emmy’s. She remains a tireless advocate for her sisters and her community and is changing our world for the better. Thank goddess for Laverne Cox! Also on the cover Alfre Woodard, Nicole Bahari & Dinai Gurira! #lavernehive

So Laverne Cox has apologized for reading that letter written by Synthia Blast and apparently she had no idea about the crimes that had been committed. 

Obviously she should have looked into the project before doing it but she requested the video be removed and she issued an apology so for those people shitting on her and calling her a terrible person you can quiet down now. She is definitely not supporting child rapists and murderers.
