Cuz ain’t nobody care about you unless you rich, ratchet, famous, skinny/thick/fit, and/or pretty.

People are conflating “stanning” for celebrities with activism and its a scary business. Maybe its just a tumblr thing. Is there a name for it? Stanivism perhaps? Stan + supposed activism.

I think about how people are rallying around these celebrities, I think about how countless unknown poor/working class people don’t get “Protect […] At All Costs” stan-ship campaigns raised in their name.

Even among the few famous, rich Black women with large followings, there’s bias. Has anybody started a Protect Gabourey Sidibe At All Costs campaign theme  on tumblr? I haven’t seen it. I’d advise people to really look at what they’re doing. Who gets protected and who doesn’t?
