y’all are like “ooh everyone is beautiful” “ooh everyone deserves to feel hot” and then three seconds later you’re making fun of people who cover their acne with makeup and people who haven’t mastered winged eyeliner yet like grow the hell up you don’t get to pick and choose times to be body positive

this really is a perfect example of a few things that are extremely common for Black people:
1.  code switching.  yes, Black people communicate and relate to one another differently than they do with White people.  This is learned behavior.  It has to do with combating white privilege in this country and having to assimilate in order to be labeled as socially acceptable, professional, polite, etc.  Another good example of this is one I got from both a family member in the military and nilesheron (hopefully he doesnt mind me sharing this).  Both talked about how they had to stop drinking Hennessy because of the way they were viewed at work functions.  Both started drinking scotch or sticking to beer.  Why? Because Hennessy is a “Black man’s drink” and therefore inappropriate.
2.  Black communities emphasize and value familial relationships among their members.  Play cousins, and play brothers, and older men sayin “what’s up baby?” when they bump into each other, and women sayin "hey sis" and President Obama embracing Kevin Durant are culturally specific practices.  They are important. They are valuable.  And they are one of the few areas you can look at and find pure Black culture and love.

I know this is a show, but this crap is still true. “I can’t be racist, I looked at a minority without spitting that one time when I was three.”
