    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

Yeah, I agree. Although, I don't think these people hate themselves, I think  that they are followers who are not being themselves.Hell, they think it's in to be a  ''black person'' and pass it off as a tan. Not ok, this is my skin every day hoW iS thiS a thing sis?!

Oh lord. She's trying to talk Bajan/Barbadian. Or like a West Indian "island gyal". Drake does this shit too and he's from Canada. He got in too good with Rihanna and had to steal her culture (as he usually does), and many people followed in his footsteps with the fake Bajan accents. She looks stupid to people who don't know what she's trying to say, and even dumber to people who do. 

 

Oof, as someone whose black and 89% of her family is West Indian, I legit did not get what she was trying to say. 
But that's wild lmao



I don't get the trend of blackfishing, and I've heard so many people trying to defend it as if it isn't problematic and that we're being "over dramatic"

It's all about what's 'in' on IG and the $$$ from sponsorship's. Sad really.

Asjdlhkl she says she's been accused of taking melatonin like.... You mean the thing that aids w/ sleep cycles? It's melanin and also the photos of her brother and dad look like they're taken in low light which is gonna effect how skin color looks they don't look tan
