god, white women give me acute stomach pains 

white mediocrity is once again uplifted

Soo… Did you guys see that post about how it’s really gross to make fun of people for the things they like?? Because I really don’t see the point if a girl wants to wear uggs and drink Starbucks and listen to Taylor Swift then fucking let her jesus christ. Calling each other “basic bitches” is just another way of putting girls down for liking things marketed towards them and fuck that. Stop making girls feel insecure about liking things FUCK.

Little white girl basic bitch, for the umpteenth time, does not mean that one likes “the simple things. “
it means that the person or thing  as a whole is mediocre. The writers for Cosmo ease dropping on conversations taking place within the black community  on tumblr heard the things we said about basic white women being uplifted as the pinnacle of beauty via white supremacy, and turned it into white women in general liking the simple things in life.
The articles are dead wrong. The people that wrote them heard something black people say and took it out of context and are now misinforming all of you.
ANYONE can be basic
ANYTHING can be basic.
It’s not about white girls all the time.
This is not about you liking uggs and pumpkin lattes
And you would know that if white folks that don’t understand anything about african american vernacular english would stay the hell out of our conversations.

not trying to ignore what is going on here intersectionally but the thing is this DOESN’T seem to be about race. when considered from solely a feminist perspective i think it’s good that people are uplifting mediocrity insofar as there is no real reason to downgrade mediocrity and choices designated as mediocre.

…This just happened.
white feminist see’s a conversation where it is spelled out that white people took a term from AAVE and somehow flipped it to black people attacking mediocrity and felt the need to offer her two cents, thus refusing and continuing the pattern of white folks coming out of their lanes.
STAY IN YOUR LANE
Being basic is an aave term. It is about race as prior to the writers on cosmo seeing it on black tumblr they probably had no ever heard or seen the words before. Other media outlets are writing about basic bitches because of that Cosmo article that directly stems from a conversation that took place on black tumblr.
Thus making every critique black women make of mediocre white women being lauded for their superiority  and describing said white women as basic  an attack on  liking the simple things when it is not.
Black women  are  are tired of being ignored if not vilified for being black while having our culture stolen and worn, and spoken incorrectly and out of context by the same basic white women that are celebrated for doing something like paying 300 or something  dollars for what looked like a hospitall robe  and slippers and wearing it in public  in the middle of the day.
This is about race. And when cosmo came on tumblr and posted pictures of Kylie Jenner in an outfit described above and called her stylish beauty.  Black  tumblr called Cosmo and Kylie “invented cornrows” Jenner basic” for celebrating her wearing some bullshit in broad day light knowing a  black women would have been called all kinds of ghetto’s for it.
