Michelle 🍎 [michelleDbelle] I was at Target today buying 30 notebooks for my class. A man in front of me asked if I was a teacher and when I said yes, he told the cashier he was paying for my notebooks. My heart really needed this…to be reminded that there are genuinely kind people left in the world. ❤️

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @AfricanaCarr Sometime during my lifetime I look forward reading about Black people finally talking casually and frequently amongst ourselves about more advanced basic topics such as «yes, Cleopatra looked like Lisa Bonet but by her *behavior* with Caesar *and* MarkAnt was she really Black?»

🧙🏾‍♂️🙅🏾‍♂️👩🏾‍🚀🌍 [BmoreDoc] American history is so poorly taught that people do not realize that to enforce the Reconstruction Amendments and Civil Rights laws, it took federal military force.

Reconstruction needed federal occupation of the South.

Desegregating schools required the National Guard.

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] Such sensationalist statement is not only analytically unhelpful – it is also irresponsibly dangerous. Violence is not black thing, nor is it the metaphor for irrational, barbaric, ‘primordial’ African violence that the Western psyche seems to have an insatiable need for. [twitter.com]

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 Humanity (African wisdom-based cultures) is based on _biological altruism_; humanity would not exist without this profound love beyond love. Imperialism is based on the fascist “liberty and freedom” to fuck a mufukka up. One is divine womanhood the other is about being a bitch.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, i was married to a brown, latina, formally-trained ballet-and-modern dancer so this amateur pole dancing stuff really does deserve my condescension

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, my formative years were all boys all the time so the gender-inequality damage done to most girls was done before i met them—all the fears, self-censorship, the devaluing, skin-color politics heavy-set in stone, “waiting” for a “strong” man to lift away: me, useless

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, the OG Roman intent inside the word “proletariat” is that the *pro*duct of your *loins* is born to work for someone else—now it should be senatorially clear why underclass white girls cannot have an abortion
