Stop Selling Out Our Blackness

I have this thing where I'm watching these spaces curated by Black people for Black people either were low-key pandering to the yt gaze or sell themselves to them...

There's this weird underlying notion that you haven't "made it" until you getting them yt dollars and those curating these spaces have shown themselves willing to cash out on the trust of their followers and audiences. It fucking sucks. And yet, it's a norm.

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.
