Been waiting all week to post this. This had to be either 8th or 9th grade 1. Why am I wearing sunglasses in the house and what kind of sunglasses did I dare to put on my face? Those are not the right shape for my head 2. Peep the slippers, who remember those sneaker slippers ? I loved my sneaker slippers! 3. This was back when I let my mom braid my hair but this is all I would let her do, half braid with the colorful rubber bands LOL. I remember having this picture on my MySpace page with a black theme and I had toyko drift as the song on my page.YES I REMEMBER THESE THINGS #ThrowbackThursdays #LoveAsianMusic #ThatOutfitTho
Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.
both pictures are misleading as fuck from the op to the reply pic and has a false title meant to sensationalize a story using the incredibly troubling problems between the dominican rep. and haiti. there’s really no need to use fake pics to make your point there are plenty of real incidents of dominicans exhibiting antiblack violence on haitians that aren’t made up stories like this one. if you go to the source it leads to a CNN ireport article which itself sources a washington post article that has now been removed (probs cus it’s fake). so I checked the comments and saw a vid of a Cachica network video posted on youtube that covered the incident down to the misinformation on the internet (that ya’ll are now spreading for notes) and literally even the guy tied up on the tree explained this wasn’t about him being haitian. in the video provided above you get (in spanish) witnesses and even his account of what happened and everyone from his neighborhood spoke highly of him saying he’s a hard working guy that just sells metals and other stuff he can get money off to have food for his fams but that one time he got caught taking stuff from a cemetery which is a huge no for any one no matter who. in dominican culture the very act of stealing will get you in huuuuge trouble, I remember when I was like 7 I stole some moneyfor candy and 1 of my aunts found out and scared me out of stealing by putting my hand by a fire saying if I steal again she’s gonna burn em for real (she wasn’t for real but still, that’s some sick ass emotional abuse shit right there). just watch the video and let the man ya’ll are using say it for himself; this was not an antiblack incident. yes there is an extremely antiblack sentiment in many dominicans and it’s shameful and needs to be worked on as soon as now but you don’t need to use fake shit to make that point.
the reason miley was banned is no reason to really applaud ourselves as dominicans either because it was largely based on the same old male sexist rhetoric and not out of some black solidarity to cast out miley for her antiblack sins. they just did it because they didn’t want to promote her “sexual freedom” which they couched as “not agreeing with her morals” as the article reports.
People need to read into things and not believe everything they see or hear. Research and evidence is key.
