At last, a lingerie company that knows “nude” doesn’t just mean white

For far too long, “nude” bandages, “flesh”-colored bras and the complete lack of foundation colors in the local drug store have been a source of frustration only women of color can truly understand.

Now, one company is hoping to change that, thanks to their new line of flesh-colored lingerie made specifically for all shades of the spectrum, slated to hit the market this October.

Passive Resistance Training, SNCC, Atlanta, GA, 1960, by James Karales, courtesy Duke University Library

(http://www.flickr.com/photos/photo-tractatus/4915553610/in/photostream/)

people had to be trained to deal wit the evil of white people

Let this sink in ppl. We don’t dislike y’all for no reason. This wasn’t 500 years ago. This happened in my grandmothers AND mothers lifetime.

I hope this makes it clear to folks that non-violence as expressed during the Civil Rights Movement was not simply a moral or political choice. It was a tactical application as well.

Do y’all think SNCC, SCLC, CORE, MLK, Jr. or anyone else wanted to witness their people being beaten, that they wanted to stay their fists and guns when their CHILDREN were being murdered? If you do, I suggest you go back to history class, because MLK, Medgar Evers, Bayard Rustin, almost any person you can think of who advocated non-violence had armed guards and personnel in place for their and their people’s safety.

Non-violence as a resistance strategy was an attempt at provocation. Recognize that. Recognize that’s why these folks are training. Because they’re performing provocation through passive resistance. By not striking back they were illustrating the madness and vitriol of white supremacy. They were exposing in the most dramatic manner possible the denial of their humanity.



Understand: This was not turn the other cheek, this was looking into the eyes of the Devil and not backing down.

i don't mean to sound rude but the other person in your argument has a point. of course in america, white people DO NO experience racism at all, therefore cannot try and compete with black people in their stories of being discriminated against. however, outside america, white people have been oppressed and discriminated against.. not everything is about the US :)

onlyblackgirl:

Oppression and racial oppression or discrimination and the same thing. Please tell me where white people are being racially oppressed AS A WHOLE RACE anywhere on earth. Not being in charge does not equal racism.

"Not being in charge does not equal racism". Yes.
