paradox ~ grace

NSFW ~ I'm an Aquarius, I love music, singing, and writing. I'm afraid of the future, afraid of being alone and of growing old. I don't know what I'm doing half the time, I don't know who I am. Similarly this blog is just a mix of photos I like, topics I care about, things I think are important, but nothing in particular.

They will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

The “inherent” non attraction to PoC is always, always, always a product of embedded racism. I’ve seen people who say, “I’m just not attracted to ___” and then when they start opening their eyes and realizing, “Holy shit, we do live in a white supremacist world that has completely corrupted by views of darker skinned human beings.” They start to see that they actually are attracted to PoC. You can hold onto being the one exception, but you’d be wrong. Educate yourself and open your fucking mind.

Racism and the will to survive it creates a sense of intra-racial loyalty that makes it impossible for black women to turn our backs on black men – even in their ugliest and most sexist of moments. I needed a feminism that would allow us to continue loving ourselves and the brothers who hurt us without letting race loyalty buy us early tombstones.
