Here's A Few Curated Tumblr Blogs Giving Kudos To Black Women

Tumblr users tend to use lots of gifs, animated media freeze-framed into clips. Someone will get a movie clip and write the dialogue or get a moveable screen-shot of a reaction and loop it.

This Is What Defending Your Daughter's Black Beauty Looks Like

Let us review this sepia brown-skinned young woman’s fight to self-acceptance. Fruit from the poisonous tree sewn from unexamined, escalating black-on-black hatred is ruinous.

Because Political Tunnelvision Won't Benefit You

Well, myopia about any issue pertaining to other aspects our lives doesn’t work either. It seems as if the two areas that happen to be crucial, critical and extensive: politics and religion are often where people fail to use any common sense!

I found myself dealing with an irate reader whose […]
