The 90s were a time of PEAK makeup looks for black women. I’m not here for airbrushed beauty blogger eyebrows and super contoured noses tbh. Why aren’t we aiming for Laura Winslow and Myra here? Why aren’t we trying to look like we should be in a Foxy Brown or En Vogue video? The maroon matte lip is powerful.

can all these asian american youtubers take some classes on race and stop spewing post-racial nonsense and false equivalences to their young, impressionable, largely asian american audiences?

Post racism is a tool of white hegemony, don’t fall for it.

can asian american guy youtubers stop being such sexist little shits plsthnx

Can Asian-American You-tubers stop appropriating AAVE in order to increase their “cool factor”?

Put aside…the shameless hypocrisy of these self-styled heroes of the free market secretly engaging in…grotesquely anti-competitive practices. What’s particularly interesting to witness is how, in contrast to the…public face of the Silicon Valley execs (the corporate mottos of Apple and Google are “Think Different” and “Don’t Be Evil”), in fact, when it comes to protecting their profits, these companies demonstrate the kind of ruthlessness that would do the old-school robber barons proud.
