Cinnamon Hearts by *CrystalWallLancaster
Researchers have found that, more often than not, African Americans and women tend to minimize experiences of discrimination, subconsciously denying or knowingly ignoring bias. When other people mistreat them because they are Black or female, they often find it less painful to heap blame on themselves than to acknowledge the racist or sexist animus that led to the situation.

For example, in a series of laboratory experiments, Karen Ruggiero of Harvard University and her colleagues asked volunteer subjects to take a test. The experimenter informed the Black research subject that one member of a panel of white judges would evaluate his or her test. The experimenter also confided that either none, some, or all of the members of the panel discriminate against Blacks. Similarly, in the gender study, women research subjects were told that one member of a panel of male judges would evaluate their test, and that either none, some, or all of the members discriminate against women.

After the test had presumably been graded by one of the panelists, the test booklet was returned to the subject with the grade F. Subjects were then asked to complete measures that assess how they make sense of the feedback and how they feel about themselves. Ruggiero and her colleagues found that although Blacks and women sometimes perceived discrimination, they were more likely to minimize discrimination and to blame themselves for their failures.

A similar study with white males as the subjects had rather different findings. White males were substantially less likely to blame themselves and more likely to see discrimination as the reason for their poor performance.

I’m intrigued to know I would have reacted in this situation.

Are we witnessing human evolution through self influence? We don’t get angry enough, anymore.

It’s been about a year in the making, but I can finally say that my art book The RED Book is finally on sale today. Something that started off a change of pace from my usual art (comics, etc) became something bigger than I originally intended. Something that started with an iPad sketchbook app and a great model turned into 110 page book full of beautiful women of all types and sizes. Thank you to everyone for the support and more importantly thank you to the women who helped inspire everything. Without you this couldn’t have even been a possibility. 

So go cop yourself a copy of the book, either the physical version of the digital .PDF version that you read on your laptop, phone, or tablet device! Thank you for everything!

Physical ($25 + shipping)* | Digital ($10)

WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING TO ME!!!

OMG! The Souls Of Mischief and the rest of The Hieroglyphics are coming to Dallas August 3rd!…And I can’t go. :( So much Hip Hop sadness in me, right now. It’s like Ricky in “Boyz In The Hood” was shot all over again.

GOOD MUSIC ALERT!!”

If you haven’t already heard these songs, check Mayer Hawthorne’s “Her Favorite Song” and A Silent Film’s “This Stage Is Your Life”. Good “Tuesday afternoon riding after getting off of work early” music. :)

Dating a woman who recently came out to you is hardly ever like what you see in movies and in pornography. You’re not instantly invited into a threesome, your friends won’t congratulate you, and your ego doesn’t convince you that you’re of studly character because you’ve tame the “wild lesbian”. You simply go on in slight paranoia at the thought of being replaced by a woman who you think will most certainly feel she’s more of a man then you…….But then the new season of “The Walking Dead” starts and you’re a man, again.

This is my girlfriend i love so much and want to help name Melissa.

She had a kidney transplant operation when she was 16 from FSGS but it’s failing now, she just had surgery to put a dialysis catheter in her stomach for regular dialysis treatment and put on the donor list for a new kidney which could take up to a few years which would be too long to deal with constant failing kidney symptoms.

If you’re willing to be tested or know someone who does please send me a message or call her yourself.

I know I don’t reblog post like this much but I would appreciate it if anyone who reads this does, especially anyone I know or knows her and knows what a cool person she is and deserves and would appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Reblog guys….This is the real deal.

Never Forget Amadou Diallo
  Amadou Diallo was a 22-year-old West African immigrant who lived in the Bronx. He studied English and Computer Science in Singapore and Thailand before coming to America. A devout Muslim, he worked twelve hours a day selling videos to earn enough money to finish his bachelor’s degree. On February 4, 1999, an unarmed Amadou Diallo was killed by members of the NYPD’s Special Crime Unit. They thought he was a serial rapist they’d been looking for, and they said they thought he was reaching for a gun. They fired 41 bullets, hitting him 19 times. 

How could I?

41 bullets.
Meaning they emptied the clip, reloaded and started shooting again.
Don’t forget that.
