Here’s the thing.
Some white people can’t STAND that there’s a word that black folks are allowed to say that they can’t. They feel discriminated against like they’re at the back of the bus. They are angry.
Four hundred years in this country is white people telling black people what they can’t do. ‘You can’t go off the plantation. You can’t keep your religion. You can’t be free. You can’t vote.’ But in 400 years, black folks have asked white people not to do ONE thing: Don’t say that word.
And they still can’t do it.
Yep, I’m geeked! #prettyforabiggirl #prettyperiod #flawsofcouture
Purple curls. The Blue got taken over by the people. It’s all good though. I like this, #violetnight a lot better than the #purplehaze. This one has a better purple undertone. #manicpanic #colortreatednaturalhair #naturalhair #texlaxed #hhj #healthyhairjourney #transitiontonatural
The same for walking out of others
Folks be like ‘I feel a certain type of way’. Yes, I used to too. Then I got over it. It was hard. Painful. Made me angry. It even made me cry some nights looking at my kids when they ask why. But (for quite a while now) it bothers me no more.
I’m happier than I’ve ever been. Freer. More joyful. Lifted from the chains that held me. Suffocated me.
I’ve released it. Gods it feels good!
"I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them."

"It’s a crime, the lie that has been told to generations of black men and white men both. Little innocent black children, born of parents who believed that their race had no history. Little black children seeing, before they could talk, that their parents considered themselves inferior. Innocent black children growing up, living out their lives, dying of old age-and all of their lives ashamed of being black. But the truth is pouring out of the bag now."
All just don’t know my story.
“But I’m still here!”
