[Gifset text reads:

"There’s a very good sentence written by a black woman named Kay Lindsey in which she said, ‘Where the white woman is the sexual object, black women are sexual laborers.’

White womanhood has been the prevailing standard of femininity in this country [the United States of America]. If you were beautiful you had pale skin,…you had light skin, preferably light hair, you were gentle, you were retiring, you were sweet, you were chaste.

Because of our historical position as black women, most of us were slaves which means we worked as hard as any man on the plantations, then we moved into factories. Most of us were not pure because on plantations we were bought to be breeders and whores. We were not qualified for the prevailing standards of femininity, white femininity, so we were passed down.

If you are a woman who does not fit women’s standards, you’re a piece of crap. So we [black women] got none of the benefits of being a woman. They’re double-edged benefits but they are benefits: money from wealthy men, so-on and so-forth. We [black women] got all of the liabilities. As I said before, we are on the lowest rung, even in a profession like prostitution because we are valueless as black women.

So we [black women] were brought up outside the pale of femininity but we weren’t considered worth turning into useful men; because ‘What is a Black Woman?’ She’s a woman and she is also black. We weren’t as good as black men and we were useless, we weren’t good enough to be imitating white women. So we had nothing.

[Black women] were total outsiders. Which is why economically we are on the absolute bottom and psychologically, if you will, of the barrel.”]

I hate bringing out like *conservatory student voice* cause it literally is just a even snobbier, higher class version of greasy classic rock child but I do like visiting upon like people that go “all music of today wouldn’t exist without *insert white dude rock band*”

the thing is though, the only people to take DIRECT influence off the Beatles are like jangle pop, power pop and Brit pop groups. Everything else would be ok.

the Beatles were a sort of amplifier of cultural attitudes so if they got into something, all the people who weren’t already in it got in it.

a far more interesting question would be not having led zeppelin and well, a lot of mainstream “hard rock” wouldn’t exist but otherwise, not so much effect.

tbh in a world without the Beatles the “fab four” would be the Rolling Stones and then some other contemporary group would take the role as the more teen-oriented, poppier group.

People treat the Beatles like they are the sole originators of every style they popularized and music does not work like that like 97% of the time.

the professed influence of *insert throwaway classic rock group here* in music has been wildly trumped and ya’ll saying that cause that’s all the music you know.

i am 90% sure that patriot post is gong to be a libertarian org and you should think twice if you’re reblogging this to point out escalating racial tensions because i can guarantee this is not what the original poster meant

any bets on how many people following Patriot Post defended similar police actions during the Bush years, and also condemn the protestors in Ferguson.
