HORRIFIC FACTS ABOUT ORIGINAL DISNEY PRINCESSES YOU DIDN’T KNOW
TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE, ABUSE, VIOLENCE
ALADDIN
In the original version of Aladdin, Cassim (Aladdin’s long lost father) gets killed by thieves. Cassim was a greedy man who sneaks into a cave to try and steal some gold coins.
He gets locked in the cave and some thieves come kill him, and cut up his corpse into quarters and place the dismembered portions outside the opening of their cave as a warning to future robbers.
CINDERELLA
In the original Cinderella, one of the step sisters slices of her own toe and the other her heel so they could fit into the shoe.
Cinderella’s magic bird points out the blood in the stockings, and each of the step-sister’s eyes are pecked out for deceit.
In the original story also, Cinderella slams down a large wooden chest down on her step-mother’s throat, killing her. 
SLEEPING BEAUTY
In the original story, a hedge grows around sleeping beauty’s castle. Men from all around come to see the sleeping princess but the brambles are so thick that they all get trapped and die a slow miserable death. 
In the original story also, the king rapes the sleeping princess. She’s impregnated with 2 twins. The queen attempts to slaughter the two babies and have them fed to the father. 
THE LITTLE MERMAID
In the original story, Ariel’s tongue is cut out. She lives in the worst kind of pain and her feet continuously bleed. The prince marries another women, and Ariel ends up committing suicide. 
SNOW WHITE
In the original version of Snow White, the Queen actually tries to kill Snow White 3 times. One by pulling her corset so tight that she passes out, another by brushing her hair with a poisoned comb, and a third by the poison apple.
Snow White was also inspired by a gruesome tale, of a young girl who gets made into a slave by a jealous wife. The wife thinks her husband is committing adultery with the girl. She makes the girl her slave and tortures and beats her everyday. 
She gives her black eyes and making her mouth so bloody it looks as though she’s been “eating raw pigeons.”
POCAHONTAS
In the original story, when Pocahontas was seventeen, she was captured by the English and held for ransom. Her husband Kokoum was killed and Pocahontas was raped repeatedly and consequently impregnated. 
She was forcefully converted to Christianity, baptized Rebecca, and quickly married off to an English tobacco farmer named John Rolfe to make the pregnancy appear legitimate.

I should add that the story of Pocahontas is actually TRUE

Nicki Minaj speaking the truth on twitter about racism (7/23/14)

Gimmie a break. Everyone can succeed if they work hard.

u would say that because your white

How did I know you would say that. Nikki is black and she makes more than me. #icomeinpeace

I see that went right over your head…Nicki’s post had nothing to do with money but it had all to do with the music industry today
what I’m saying, If I must address the rap world and the so call “beef” between iggy and nicki. Nicki Minaj has worked her ass off to make a name for herself in the industry, not only as a rapper but as a pop star too. She had songs like super bass and starships but also gave iconic verses like the monster feature, just to show people that she can survive in both lanes.
Not to mention that she also had 3 memorable mixtapes to back up her hip-hop credentials and now has to sit and watch as a mediocre rapper like iggy get praised as the new rap queen off of a few catchy choruses and plus the fact that she is white. I don’t know about you but I would be pissed if I didn’t get the credit I deserved too.
Iggy was born in Australia and grew up on a farm, dropped out of high school, moved to the U.S. when she was 16 and met a guy that was in his 20s that eventually hooked her up with modeling agencies. Dude was basically her sugar daddy because he paid for her first apartment and all her expenses. She comes out with a couple of mixtapes and an EP that non of which are critically acclaimed. Drops some singles from her album like Work, Change Your Life, and Bounce (non of which cracked the top 50 on billboard).
So then she releases Fancy, now Clear Channel (which owns 840 radio stations in the US) has a voting system that saves artist if their songs aren’t doing so well on the charts, it’s called the “on the verge” program. They voted to add Iggy’s song Fancy to every station and that song must get 150 spins from each one. (that’s how u hear the same song 4-5 times in one hour)
That made Iggy’s song get stuck in people’s heads so they eventually bought it and that’s how iggy became a huge star. Not by hard work, not by rap skills, not by good songs but by people feeling pity on her flopping singles so they had to save her career. Iggy is not seen as a rapper, she is in the same category as Pitbull, flo-rida and Macklemore, they all will have top tens and possibly #1s but are never looked at as great rappers.
Iggy has been putting out mediocre music that is catchy to garner the attention of the pop/mainstream world but has yet to release anything that makes her a great lyricist/rapper. Iggy’s complexion and body has gotten her more attention than her music. Now u can say that nicki uses her body to for attention too but she captures ur attention with her body and u stay captivated by her metaphors, flow, versatility, and the lyrics of her songs.
( notice how I didn’t mention Iggy’s fake accent when she raps or her horrendous album sales compared to Nicki’s first album… but that’s none of my business🐸☕️)
PS: If u don’t mind, when u address the queen her name is spelled N I C K I not Nikki. thanks

DERRICK MOTHERFUCKIN ROSE!!!

"I better slow down I don’t want my legs to break again"

blastortoise:

When a POC reads a lot, gets good grades or speaks with naturally with an expansive vocabulary and white people say ” haah you are so WHITE!”

What they really are saying is “I don’t associate those positive attributes with being a poc because your people don’t do any of that. Only white people do are capable of that.”

Right now, I can only tell you my truth as it pertains to today.

And if you support that truth and want to journey with me knowing that things may change as we walk on this path together, then please walk with me.

But if you want to preserve me the way I am, then walk behind or ahead of me and we’ll catch up from time to time.

I am a woman constantly defining her own truth.
