I’m trying so hard
to glide through life
instead of constantly
looking for routine
i’m looking for a way
to not let my worries 
get the best of me

I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

Heeey! You know the song you posted of Ne-Yo? Which album is it from? Because I have "In My Own Words", but the song is not from there! I would really appreciate it if you told me <3

I know that it was specifically produced by Stargate. Unfortunately, it wasn’t on an album but if you want a download link I can give it to you.

Song 22

I think I’ll hang on
If you still want me
But if you don’t
I guess I’ll move on

She was the type of woman

She was the type of woman that people are warned about
when mothers walk their children
they close their eyes from looking too
hard at  the curves that hug the edges
of her dress


She was the type of woman
men with motherless children
took home whenever they felt
lonely but not lonely enough
to look for a lifetime partner


She didn’t mind being the woman of pleasure
she loved when men moaned her name in despair
like a fish gasping for air after being removed from water


She used to complain about the lack of love in her 
life but now she realized that the only love she needed
within should only be devoted to herself


Her mother told she is going to get caught up
one of these days
Someone’s wife will coming for her one day and kill her
but she didn’t care


She like the way men who she barely knew grabbed at her hips
as if they were the softest things on earth to touch


At times she wondered whether or not would she ever find
someone who wants to know her for her but she clears those
sudden thoughts quickly before she looks at her life in disgust
Above all, she wondered what it was like for someone to not
know how to move or speak whenever she wasn’t around
She wanted someone to need her as much she needed them

Loving you was fine but it&#8217;s a new day, a new season.

Loving you was fine but it’s a new day, a new season.

laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”
