Fixed my baby today. #Judgeme if you want, but while you do that, I’ll be doing what I love. #skating. #sheskates #8s #ducttape #owls

If White People Were Described Like People Of Color In Literature

You know something. This isn’t even a joke. I don’t know if white people truly TRULY pay attention to his authors describe POC characters. We’re always associated with a food (albeit delicious ones) but when you think about it is so gross….

You never see white descriptions like this. You always see words like “ethereal, angelic ,alabaster skin.”..etc etc.

Tuh.

Didn’t tumblr make this list happen?

This has me screaming laughing…. as a person who reads often, I’ve actually had this thought….

I have been trying to stay away from commenting on issues concerning #mikebrown and #ferguson. I have been praying for victims on both sides. Innocent lives lost. The a tigma attached to cops whi are ACTUALLY trying to serve and protect. Families lost to gang warfare. Everybody. Its heartbreaking and heart wrenching. The answer to racial profiling by the police is not what about black on black crime. BonB crime is just as appalling to me. My son currently resides in New Orleans, one of the murder capitals per capita is this country. You best belive I know and think about the fact this could have been my child. Either way. However. Having served my country in the military, and once having considered becoming a cop, THIS #statistic is terrifying.

The usual. Shit. 😬😢😵😤…. If you loved me youd feed my #innerfatty chocolate raspberry cheesecake, my #innerdrunkard wine and my #innerlazy would appreciate a foot rub… no?? Shit. Fine. Back to the grind. #np #amywinehouse #valarie

It’s hard to be you in a world of judgment. People think they know you. Know your stuggle. Compare it to theirs.  There is no comparison. Yours is yours. Mine is mine. If I respect yours, is it too much to ask that you respect mine???? Yeah. It probably is. SMH…. My girls get it. The tiny baby Jesus knows, we support each other through it. I love me some them….Adore them in fact.  @truthinjokes69 @mecdeezee_sheskates @suga_shae
