Why is the image of a Black couple the greatest threat to the Marvel Universe?
Why are all the prominent Black hero’s at Marvel (Storm, Falcon, American Patriot. Blade, Miles Morales the Ultimate Spiderman ) in a relationship with person of another race? Even the gay couples.
Yet the marriage of Storm and Panther was a mistake.
What is it about Black sexuality that makes it easier to feature all white girls in a comic that features a Black teenage Spiderman as if no Black girls exist in New York?
Repost this until Marvel gets over its fear of Black people in love
Racism in advertising.
This is what we’re told constantly. That our brown skin is ugly and that we can only be beautiful if we’re white.
A bleaching deodorant I can understand. My underarms get dark from shaving during the summer. The rest of this is all the result of colorism/shadeism/antiblackness period
Dove is all about women loving the skin they’re in
As long as the skin is white
But don’t forget! The also sell tanning creams to American white women to be darker!
It’s a trap game and they want us to all feel bad and buy more of their cheap and poorly made products. Also tested on animals so…
pls tell me a white woman isn’t on this post comparing tanning lotion to skin bleaching
When I was a student, all that was told to me was how much my cultura didn’t matter. How important European art and standards are, and how totally dominant their aesthetic should be. All I wanted to do was tell my story. And I looked nothing like what is considered relevant or beautiful or important by society’s ideals. But I JUST.KEPT.GOING. Here are some of my pieces. I’m here to uplift and change who is in the spotlight. Powerful womyn of color. My indigenous sisters.
Thank you for sharing! ❤
The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness.
Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.
