HERE’S WHAT ‘YELLOW FEVER’ REALLY MEANS

"All my ex-girlfriends are Asian."

If you’ve ever come across this charming come-on, you’ve probably been exposed to yellow fever

For her full commentary watch the video here.

YES, THERE IS NOW A MUCH NEEDED GIF SET FOR THIS!

I removed the word rant from the link, because I felt it dismissive of what she was actually trying to communicate.

A 20-year-old girl from South Africa known as Sarah “Saartjie” Baartman was recruited to work in a Paris zoo because of a genetic characteristic known as steatopygia – protuberant buttocks and elongated labia. Whites went to the zoo to look at her buttocks and at other naked Black women with the same shape.
Gawking with desire: since forever and today.

This is the shit that I was talking about. Black women have a history of being treated like animals and if we dare say some shit about it we get shut down and told we’re either over reacting or lying for attention.

Nas Helps Raise Over $30,000 For A Homeless Single Father With 8 Kids

For many, Nas is just a rapper but to the Young family, he is a hero.

This week, Nas came across the story of Stanley Young, a single father of 8 children who had lost his home to a fire, on the news and he decided to start a campaign to help the family find a new home.

In a message submitted to the fundraising site Crowdtilt, Nas wrote:

Stanley Young is an unemployed construction worker and single father. Two weeks ago, a fire destroyed his home. His family is stuck in a hotel, but time is running out. I could barely watch his tragic story on the news…– they will be kicked out by August 13th if we don’t do something to help now.I am also a single father, and we don’t get enough credit in this country. I’m committed to helping Stanley and his eight (yes 8!) kids. Moreover, I believe and hope that we should all, as a community, come together to help our fellow American men and women when they need us in desperate situations like this. See if you can’t find a few dollars to help the Youngs get back on their feet with me. We need to raise enough to extend their stay, and maybe even afford a down payment on a new house or something.

This is real. It is me. I’m putting in $5,000 myself. Never done something like this, but I have faith that our American community can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now. If we can get to the $20,000 goal, I’ll put in another $5,000 too.

Thanks and God bless.

As of this morning, Nas has helped raise almost $35,000, and is looking to raise at least $50,000 by August 13, which is the date that Stanley and his family will be required to vacate the hotel they are living in.

Meanwhile, Stanley was taken aback by all the support. He told ABC 7:

So many people just came out of nowhere and put out money and we were blown away. It’s been surprising how much they did within a couple of hours. That is so amazing to me. It’s overwhelming. He don’t have to do what he had to do. People, strangers I don’t even know, never met before in my life, are helping and that’s amazing.

And Nas added:

Thank you to ABC for putting this on our radar so we know about this. We just knew we had to do something. I’m grateful to Stanley. He’s the true American dream. A man who would do whatever it takes to take care of his kids. I’m the same way and I just think he’s great.

Nas is in direct contact with Stanley and his family, and they are hoping that the $50,000 will help the Youngs find a permanent place to live versus a temporary solution.

If you are wondering about the kids’ mom, she passed away last year, which makes the story even more heartbreaking.
