All in Racism

Voting Is Bullshit But I'll Do It Anyway

I am an American who is not an American. My skin is too brown, my body too female and fat, and I cannot and will not occupy the space that amerikkka tries to coerce me into occupying to belong. I cannot neutralize my physicality enough to make whiteness comfortable with my presence and I no longer try. The truth of my existence here is apparent – I will never belong, and I am only mildly tolerable when I perform the roles white patriarchy dictates. And that is not who I choose to be.

To The Black Men Who Think They Are Neutral But Really Support White Patriarchal Supremacy…

I’m going to keep it real. I don’t usually single out Black men. I’m aware of the optics that my interracial marriage has when it comes to talking about them. I’ve opted to keep my discussions about them off-line and grouped with either Blackness or maleness, but I can’t really do that anymore cuz they are seriously working my nerves with their fuckshit.
