This brings back fond memories of a tarantula I used to own named “Anansi.”
“The thing is, a black man can’t be president in America, given the racial aversion and history that’s still out there,” Cornell Belcher, a pollster for Obama, told the journalist Gwen Ifill after the 2008 election. “However, an extraordinary, gifted, and talented young man who happens to be black can be president.”
Belcher’s formulation grants the power of anti-black racism, and proposes to defeat it by not acknowledging it. His is the perfect statement of the Obama era, a time marked by a revolution that must never announce itself, by a democracy that must never acknowledge the weight of race, even while being shaped by it. Barack Obama governs a nation enlightened enough to send an African American to the White House, but not enlightened enough to accept a black man as its president.

The bare fact that a lot of the dishes here, we too cook them in Haiti. WOAH! (((:
i will not imagine a bunch of men flopping their dicks out at a 6 year old girl
that is rape culture
why the fuck do all these MRAS have to be such pedos, and try to make us pedos in the process
no fedora no no fedora man
i am not falling into your pedo trap so easily
It’s not a pedo trap, you fucker, it’s the reason why women molesting male children isn’t believed to either exist or be a problem. You asshat. That is exactly what rape culture fucking IS!
Apparently it’s not paedophilia if it’s a female against a male child. Apparently saying it’s just as bad makes us all paedophiles ourselves. I know they are taking the piss just to derail and make us look bad but what the hell is wrong with them?
I’d be just as disgusted if this was a 6 year old girl rapper doing the same thing.
