“I am a Black Feminist. I mean I recognize that my power as well as my primary oppressions come as a result of my blackness as well as my womaness, and therefore my struggles on both of these fronts are inseparable.”—Audre Lorde (via wearethedescendantsofstars)
I think I want to put this on a poster and hang it in my room. (via ethiopienne)
“The events which transpired five thousand years ago, five years ago or five minutes ago, have determined what will happen five minutes from now, five years from now or five thousand years from now. All history is a current event.”—Dr. John Henrik Clarke (via praisethelorde)
I know I’ve been a little naughty this year, sh*t happens, we both know this; so I’m not going to ask for much.
All I want for Christmas is for you to take care of my student loans; specifically SallieMae & Wells Fargo. I have a few accounts so make sure you handle all of them. They should all read $0.00 balance, ok? Also, you’ll need to stop by student accounts at my 2 previous campuses and handle those as well; then stop by the school I’m at now and drop $60k on the books for me so I can finish this degree without interruption. Ooh and lastly, I would also like World Peace.
p.s. I would like my life back before I die, so please use all the Christmas magic you have to make this happen…
Yes he smoked but Robert Nesta Marley was more than a herd-toking singer.
He was a revolutionist and an activist.
Do your research yougins
Seriously…These people don’t even know that Bob Marley lived in Wilmington, DE for a while. And ‘Get Up Stand Up’ was reportedly written about the injustices he saw Black people facing while he was here.
Weed should be the very last thing anyone ever thinks of when referring to the Great Robert Nesta Marley…his lyrics speak for themselves…
I don’t know when it happened
I don’t think I care
But here I am in love,
hopelessly drowning in both
Maybe it’s just a ‘phase’
A little infatuation
It’ll pass when my eyes behold something new
Something more beautiful
Or maybe not
Beautiful beyond words
in every way possible
All of my praises are demanded
and most importantly,
Unbelievably, unbearably and irrevocably
