Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!  

This is why this is important.

ACTUALLY, the term was APPROPRIATED. it originally was used to describe BLACK YOUTHS OF THE JAZZ CULTURE. it stemmed from “hep cat” to “hepster” to “hipster.”
the definition of what a hipster is changed so much throughout the coining but all in all: WHITE PEOPLE APPROPRIATED THE TERM AND THE CULTURE.

Please reblog this version y’all.

The recipe contains flour, semolina, dry yeast, melted butter, salt, sugar, and some water. These are mixed into a smooth dough, the dough is cut into balls, rolled out, folded into square pancakes, and fried.
