The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)

zizino:

Asian & Black girls are constantly pinned against each other because we represent opposite sides of the “non-white people” spectrum. Asians are “submissive, quiet, and shy” while black girls are “aggressive, loud, extroverted” and whenever these paths cross, white people will get angry

They constantly tell Asian girls that they are the “good” minority, and in the same breath sexualize these women by taking and posting pictures of them clad in just swimsuits and japanese school girl uniforms

Whites tell us black girls that we are too loud and abrasive, but will put us on the front lines of Versace and Givenchy and praise our skin color and wish for our bone structure

Asian and Black girls are in a constant cycle of Idolization, dehumanization and fetishization and we need to break out of this vicious cycle and stand against white supremacy and this constructed racist institution
