I know I don’t speak for all Black people, but I want to say for most POC here, we’re really tired of hearing of MLK quotes. I know you think you’re being really profound with this kumbuyah and everyone should love each other, and hate shouldn’t make more hate.. But we’ve heard it all before. We all went to elementary school. History has shown us, that black people can be nice to white people, and they’re still gonna be racist. History has shown us that gay people can be nice to straight people, and guess what, they’re still gonna be homophobic. I know you addressed your privilege, and that’s really cool. I’m glad you did that. But now I suggest you actually read about that, and figure out why those statements were really problematic.

Again, it’s estimated that two or three blacks were lynched each week in the American South during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Compare that to conservative reports from the FBI that, in the seven years between 2005 and 2012, a white officer used deadly force against a black person almost two times every week. A deeper analysis by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement found that, in just 2012, police killed more than 313 black people — one every 28 hours. MXGM also found that 44% of those killed were unarmed and 43% were not in the process of of committing a crime, but stopped by police for “suspicious activity.”

do you ever have those days where no matter what you try your body just refuses to move quickly like you’re tryna hurry and your body is like “where is the fire my son” and you’re like “noooooooo i’m gonna get fired”

wall of arms

botanicalgardens:

I woke up with a loved one’s eyes upon me
Loved one’s arms around me
And I grew up in the bosom of my family
Eight strong arms around me

Oh, from the seed they’ve grown me
And I thank those…who kept me company
They are a wall of arms around me
Oh, it is they who are my army

The worms are what await me
It’s only me that can forgive me

And I have faith
