hey, baby’s gotta eat
black mommy excellence
I don’t support breast feeding in public places. Sorry not sorry. I just think there is a time and place for everything.
the time is when the baby is hungry
and the place is where the mother is able to feed the baby
everyone is always critiquing black motherhood and here we have a black woman not only graduating but giving her baby the nourishment it needs
i think there’s a time and place for your negativity
and it’s not now and it’s not on this picture
people don’t realize that when they say parents shouldn’t breast feed in public they’re really saying “my discomfort and objectification of breasts is more important than your child’s health and survival.” all you fuckers who say this shit should be charged with neglect. you can’t forbid people from feeding their children just cause boobs give weak dudes boners.

June 1987, Madonna was rushed to the Cedars Sinai hospital for an X-ray after her then-husband—Sean Penn hit her across the head with a baseball bat. At the time, they had been having a heart-to-heart talk about reconciling.
Madonna did not make an official complaint because Penn was about to serve a short jail term for attacking a film extra and violating the probation he’d been given for punching a fan. It was a decision she would come to regret. In the late afternoon of December 28, 1988, Penn scaled the wall surrounding the Malibu house and found Madonna alone in the master bedroom.
According to a report filed by Madonna with the Malibu sheriff’s office, the two began to quarrel. Penn told her he owned her “lock, stock and barrel”. When she told him she was leaving the house, he tried to bind her hands with an electric cord. Screaming and afraid, Madonna fled from the bedroom. Penn chased her into the living room, caught her and bound her to a chair with heavy twine. Then he threatened to shave her hair. Penn was “drinking liquor straight from the bottle” and the abuse went on for nine hours, during which he smacked and forced Madonna to perform a “degrading sex act” on him.
He went out to buy more alcohol, leaving Madonna bound and gagged. Some hours later, he returned and continued his attacks, then finally untied her. Madonna then fled the house and ran to her car. Penn ran after her and was banging on the windows of her Thunderbird while she spoke to police on her mobile phone. Fifteen minutes later, she staggered into the sheriff’s office.
Wow. I had no idea this had ever happened. Makes me look at Sean Penn a lot differently, even if he’s a more stable less ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING person now…
Friendly reminder that Sean Penn and other abusive white celebrities are not demonized the way that Chris Brown is and when Rihanna said she still loved Chris Brown people were ready to hang her. But Madonna gets all the sympathy in the world.
For the bold. Madonna was bound and tortured for nine hours by Sean Penn. Not a peep to the media.
Kindness always overcomes antagonism… Instead of confronting our children we need to remember to communicate with them, understanding the challenges they face and empathising
Communication is the fundemental building block of a good relationship and after all what more could we want for our children. Establishing a framework where they feel empowered and understand the boundaries of their actions drives their ability to make the right choices in life

- Police say they haven’t talked to/don’t know where Darren Wilson is but one officer says “Darren Wilson is somewhere safe”
- Darren Wilson’s identity was concealed until all of his social media was deleted and he was moved out of state
- Pictures of Darren Wilson. Video of Darren Wilson receiving an award
I’m curious as to how Darren Wilson managed to not be seen at all before or after testifying in front of the grand jury. There’s no way he could have snuck in and out all by himself. In my opinion, the police know exactly where he is and they are doing everything they can to protect him.
trashcan-fire said: he’s on payroll. that means he’s getting $ from the police dept. they know where he is.
This too! ^^

masculinity is so funny to me bc men deprive themselves of the best things in life in order to achieve it like ….fuzzy socks, fun fruity pink drinks, spa days, lifetime movies, expressing positive feelings in a healthy way, being a warm genuine person
