Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.

And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

ALL OF THIS

To add to that Poussey is not only well-read but has a thirst for knowledge, especially that of a literary kind, so many disregard this show as just being a comical insight to women’s prisons but so many of the characters represent huge minorities in our world and they represent them well, be that of a different race or cultural background, a different orientation or religious belief, etc.

The kardashians watching Beyoncé all salty cuz they have no talent.

Like why were they even there?

Their family is full of successful business women who are mothers, managers, television hosts, models, and video game producers. Just because they can’t sing or dance does not mean they don’t have talent.

Someone finally said it! Why everyone hates on them I have no idea. Everyone acts like they’re all so dumb but realistically they’re all so fucking smart.

Didn’t know being a mother and being a model required talent…..

Lol take away their looks and money and they are average. It’s not that hard to see.

There are far more talented and smarter women that young women should idolize. Nowadays most young women aspire to be “models” which is why IG and tumblr are such a hit. Everyone gets to experience their 15 seconds of fame. But realistically look how it changed our culture. Most girls don’t pursue careers anymore in hopes of getting “discovered” more worried about likes and followers than they are degrees. I mean we got more strippers than ever now, not even working at clubs but on the internet. We have minors and +18 year olds addicted to attention and orgasms. Masturbating for strangers In their own rooms, under their parents roof doing worse things than strippers do. I have respect for people, but it’s hard to respect someone that doesn’t respect themselves. And if you think camming is respectable, how about you cam yourself telling your whole family what you do. All tips on me in ascending order.

What happens when you have kids? They can’t eat your selfies? What are you going to tell your husband? No one is going to want to marry a pretty face with no skills or ambition that apply to the real world. You’re gorgeous we get it. But you can’t put pretty on a resume.

personally i’d LOVE to see how successful and “talented” these girls would have turned out had they not come from a very very rich and famous family. If they were from working class or even just middle class with nobody notable to their name and no connections, like most of us do. I’d love to see how successful they would have been then if they had to work hard to each success like the rest of us.

In England we call them ‘lads’ and I try to get out of that bar as soon as possible.

a bunch of ‘em came into my favourite heavy metal pub and began spamming RnB, pop music and Usher on the jukebox. I don’t believe in stereotyping people based on how they’re dressed but they make it so hard not to..

I’m posting this on here as my other blog is currently unviewable for some weird reason:

I’ve come to care a lot more about the world I live in, I used to have a cynical and complacent stance toward everything, very selfish and unkind. However I have decided I want to try and make a difference.

I know I am just one person and pretty much nobody knows who I am, but my stream has grown in popularity recently and I hope it continues to, so I’m going to try and use that to help join the fight against some of the issues our world is facing, primarily the one that has been most on my mind. I can’t do this right now as I don’t know how, but once I figure it out instead of asking or hinting or even allowing people to donate to me and my stream, I want them to donate to a good cause, I want to send money to help pay for the bail of the people wrongfully incarcerated for peaceful protests in Ferguson, to the family of Michael Brown, in the hopes that they can help set up a proper investigation and hopefully bring his killer to justice and better their lives. To the Ferguson community to help rebuild and renew it after the riots. I don’t get any donations really as of yet, I’ve had 3 so far but I hope people will find it in their hearts to put some money towards this, as it’s not for me especially as I don’t need the money. I have no idea if it’ll ever work, but I want to at least try. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas on how I can make this happen please let me know! 

I will post a link with my stream in the next blog post so if I manage to get a donation to them up and running you’ll know where to go x

I wanna take a moment here to pay homage to my mother. I’ve honestly never met a more astounding human being, she’s not had the worst life but she’s not had an easy one either, and what makes her so astounding is how happy, loving, kind, sweet and upbeat she is most of the time. Not once in my life has she ever raised her voice at me or my sisters or her husbands, but that’s not to say she hasn’t implemented discipline, she’s always treated me better than most people ever had including my father. One of the reasons I am the way I am is because she’s always known to allow me to grow and learn and be an adult in my own way, if she gets really worried she will intervene but otherwise she’ll let me do my own thing and be there to comfort me and offer advice if it goes wrong. If I make a mistake that potentially lands me up in a really bad situation she’s not going to give me sympathy or comfort, she’ll tell me exactly what she thinks, however I have never felt more love, warmth and kindness from anyone except for my other half. She had to deal with crying herself to sleep for 8 years of her first marriage because of my dad, but I had no idea because she maintained the illusion she was happy for the sake of me and my sisters. My little sister is off to a prestigious university to study applied psychology, my other sister has just bought a house with her boyfriend and me, I’m in a healthy and happy relationship, entering my second year of university with a good job, and we all owe our success in growing and become healthy, happy and functioning adults to her. When I get a full time career and have a large income (I should say if not when really) I’m going to put that money into ensuring a great retirement for her and helping her dream of becoming an author blossom, buy a place for her and her husband in Scotland, take her on holiday, repay all the good she’s done for me if possible. If there’s anything I’m thankful for (which is a lot) it’s her, and everything I am thankful for is because of her. Also it would mean the world to both of us if you take a look at her book that she published herself, I’ve proof read most of her books and they’re all incredible. Only 79p on Amazon so there’s really no reason not to at least give it a look! This world needs more people like her and maybe if her words can be spread across it there will be.
