On Judging and Body Shaming Shaming Black Women

“When I see comments judging black women’s appearance and bodies, a lot of them come from other black women and black men. It makes me so uncomfortable reading the comments, because if I wasn’t aware that the people making the comments were black, I’d assume it were a bunch of stereotyping white and non-black people who harbor anti-blackness. All I have to say is why? Whites already discriminate towards black women in these departments enough. Black people, you can’t tell black women to carry the community on our backs but them promote the racist troupe that we’re also inferior. It doesn’t work like that.

Black women have been fighting for so long in a society that discriminates against our physical appearance. Our own people contributing to the oppression doesn’t make this battle any easier.” Fed Up Black Woman, Tumblr
