The Illuminator projected this near the Brooklyn Bridge in solidarity with the people of Ferguson.

I love how the photographer captured the freedom tower next to the visual. And I love how they chose a building that would make this all come together perfectly.

Y’all can keep your think pieces or dissertations on why an android is better than an iPhone. We don’t fucking care.

Gang Bangs

thequeenspeaks:

You definitely don’t have to agree but I’ve been asked this question a few times this week and now I’m seeing it on my tumblr feed, so here are my thoughts. A woman participating in a gang bang doesn’t make her hoe, in fact I think the fact that a women even has the guts, and sexual prowess to…

Ever notice…

curvesincolor:

When an innocent black person is killed, the media goes out of their way to dehumanize them and paint them as a criminal.

When a white celebrity dies, the media erases every racist and/or problematic thing they ever said or did and paints them as a hero.

Tara threatened me, said she’ll burn all my wigs if I didn’t crop her out. I kept her hand in the picture for memories 😔

Jill Scott by Wonderland101 Are we really surprised mainstream feminism does not care about privacy violations for Jill Scott the way they did for Jennifer Lawrence?

Reading this was comforting as hell, I’ve only just recently got comfortable calling myself a writer, but I’ve always lived life feeling like I was a lot of things, not just one. Never cared, or care about fitting in, cause I’m so used to that not being the case. I’m always popular, always part of the cool kids, but I never feel like I belong. 

Maybe I’ll stop trying to be one person, and just be the many people that I am

NYC women take to social media to fight street harassment - am New York

I was featured in a NYC newspaper last week. I’ve wanted to see my name in a paper since I was a little girl so this made me extremely happy.

Naima Muhammad, 30, who writes under the pen name “Queen” for afropunk.com and has tweeted her experiences and blogged about them on Thequeenspeaks on Tumblr and MSVIXENMAG.COM, said social media is indispensable for getting a conversation going about the daily, casual degradation women experience in New York City.

The East New York writer silenced a male commenter on Twitter who insisted that women were flattered by harassment by pointing out that women were no more deserving of his assumptions than young men were of being racially profiled.

Following the Twitter hashtag #YouOkSis, which is devoted to de-escalating street aggression, particularly aggression against women of color, taught her not to look the other way when witnessing the harassment of another female.

"Now, if I see another woman looking uncomfortable, I ask her" if she’d like help, she explained. Click link for full article

Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops. It’s white rage against progress.

Why do I write?

To reflect, to reference where I’ve been and see if I have grown. I write things down cause my thoughts outweigh the memory space in my brain. I write because sometimes it’s more polite for onlookers to read my radical thoughts, than hear them. I write because people before me were denied the right to. I have stories to tell, things to explore and rhetoric that needs a place to live. I write to create, cause I must. My form of procreation, these words are my babies. Sentences, are my family and paragraphs, the communities that I feel secure in. I write because it’s where I feel the safest.
