The moral high road of Blackness in this society is exhausting.

Black folks are continually disappointed by Grammys, Oscars, Emmys, et c. awards handed out by the white dominant establishment. I don’t get why we are so invested in being acknowledged by those who don’t want to see us.

The need for me to improve my Spanish listening & comprehension just increased tenfold now that I know there’s such a music as narcocorrido.

This is the soundtrack to the kind of culture that social media is producing.

I’m approximately 729 years old living in a 32 year old physical, so I know why I sound crazy a lot.

In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”

During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:

The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.

Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career

Shining example of the potency of white women’s tears
