Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] “Acceptance by white society”. That has been one of the biggest desires of our people, whether or not we want to admit it. It has also been the root of one of our biggest downfalls. Do you agree?

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] White supremacy is a religion. And the god is white skin. And white skin absolves you almost any sin you commit against non whites. And it affords you prosperity often at the expense and brutal enslavement of non white people

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, my person is a product designed and built by Black women for Black women but the customers return the product as defective because of the learning curve: she has to know how these things are designed and why one would “waste” their life building it in the first place.
