New Black is a term Pharrell Coined where he defines as black people beyond race. etc. "The New Black doesn’t blame other races for our issues”

Black twitter and tumblr dragged him in response and most of us use the term to describe black people that are so deluded by internalized racism and their class that they can no longer relate everyday black people even in the face of racism. 

For example; Keke Palmer, Don Lemon, Kanye West, Tamar Braxton, Morgan Freeman, etc

Zoe Saldana is another example.

SZA

Jhene Aiko

Childish Gambino

TI

BOB

Nelly

Keke Palmer

Stacey Dash aka She Who Must Not Be Named. I’m pretty sure we disowned her tho.

We did disown her, she’s been Dark White for quite some time now

Why is KEKE on the list?

There are 2 types of black women in this life the one that finds the information out that you’ve been tryna hide and she blows up and throws it in your face and leaves without thinking and the kind that finds out and uses that info to build a case against you and you’ll either find yourself in court where she’s taking 99.99 percent of everything you own or she’s slowly getting her stuff together & you find a post-it on your fridge and empty closets

Reorganizing my college apartment AGAIN only been here for 2 weeks why the hell is this room so SMALL?? The amount I pay & the space allotted does not add up.

I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love. Kuba Wojewodzki, Polish journalist and comedian. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Suddenly you’re 21 and you’re screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good

I appreciate silence. I appreciate people who don’t need to fill the world with excess noise in order to communicate a message. breatheasyhoney  (via woundedwillows)
