People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

This is CRITICAL

Smart Girls, we think you’re pretty brilliant :)

"It’s just a prank, calm down!"

When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.

I would have grabbed that ponytail and ripped his hair right off his ugly head 

Fuck that shit, kill that mother fucker. That is legit assault and it would be justified in chopping off his dick and feeding to that mother fucker.

Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

Boy with a Big Head Answer:

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

All of this. ALL OF THIS. READ THIS ^^^^^^

White people didn’t invent straight hair either. There are Black people with straight hair. That’s not a “White style”.

This is great and I love the rationale and logistics of it, but we must cite our sources (either with a web address or something). I am always received with reluctance when I spout of statistics and information that I have not established a foundation for (from both White People and POC’s), and it is difficult to touch academics and scholars with these issues if you can’t back it up.
Granted, a lot of that sounds like trying to appease White people, and don’t get me wrong I hate doing that, but the truth is all these facts, all these figures would be a lot powerful if someone stood up and questions you and your findings and you say, “Well Mr. Asshole, don’t take my word for it, by all means you can look up these figures and facts at www.msnbc.com/fuckyou to get a better understanding of what I am talking about.”
I know google is alive and well, but telling someone that you know information and where to find it is way more powerful than just saying, “google it.” You’re smart and great and don’t be afraid to flaunt what you got.

If your solution requires racists to “look within” themselves.
If you’re trying to guilt-trip white folks.
If you’re trying to “convince” racists to stop.
That shit aint a solution. Marching, holding up signs, and signing petitions all require white people to approve.
Think about YOUR solution and does it fit the description. Black people can only win by liberating themselves. ✌️✌️
