the kinte space [KinteSpace] @digitalafrican The name of this company is Kenya Reinsurance Corp. Ltd.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @elleira__ Wow it’s getting easier and easier to find young sisters and brothers making sense on social media💪👶I have been an adult for several decades and I have *never* heard or seen a BM reject a BW for a non-BW—now what kind of women on average *directly* approach or respond to BM?

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.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @BreeNewsome Let me guess based on years of social media experience: no response for the self-described black women who actually support patriarchy which we can infer by the latest British Imperial marriage ceremony. I can denounce patriarchy all day long and will continue to do so.
