My name is JaMese, I go by Jay Jay. I'm an aspiring comedian, feminist & activist. A simple girl with a complex mind. I'm in love with natural beauty and natural hair. I reblog things I find amusing plus add the fuckery that is inside my brain. Enjoy all that is me.
Peace & be.
Racism and sexism is not new. Why are we surprised? Nicki is not exempt. All we can do is continue to support our people and live.
Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
#reblog again*Lemongrab voice* UNACCEPTABLE
I’m trying to cook with all fresh ingredients. No cutting corners and taking the easy way out. If I can make it fresh, I will do so. If not, I will use the closest thing to it. No packages, no jars, no “just add water” mixes. Cooking is a big deal and seeing my family full and healthy is dope.
Chicken Alfredo - fresh cream and roasted garlic and parmesan off the block.
Garlic bread - roasted garlic and rosemary
Some big changes
If I wasn’t ready then,
I will be;
I will have to be.
Remember, the storms you have encountered have only made you stronger. You are wiser, you are more alive, and you are headed for victory. Your brightest days are right out in front of you! Always remember that with God on your side, nothing can hold you back!
I have this INCREDIBLE superpower… I have the ability to live life like people I once loved and cared for, that have since done me wrong and/or betrayed me- completely don’t exist. POOF!
Who?? Pass the mashed potatoes please…
I think about this every time I’m miserable with a cold. I take snot-free breathing for granted.
I don’t think we take enough time to appreciate the periods in our life when our noses aren’t runny. Is your nose runny right now? No? Think about that. Honestly reflect on it. Enjoy this era of peace. There are dark times on the horizon
