Painted our banner last night for the climate march in NY on the 21st that will show the intersection between farm worker labor and the struggle for climate justice!

Black women are expected and in fact encouraged to assume a kind of mercurial hysteria surrounding dating.
We are supposed to deal with “reality” which is that we are ugly and unwanted. But we are supposed to exude confidence because women with low self esteems are pathetic. But then we can’t exude too much confidence because there comes the meme about the independent Black woman who don’t need no man.
We are supposed to be loyal to Black men. But we are expected to deal with the “reality” that there are not enough good ones to go around. We are supposed to desire Black men exclusively, but we are encouraged to believe that Black men do not make good partners because they are hyper-masculine and violent or because they hate dark skin and natural hair. We normalize whiteness by making it seem like white men are above and beyond the pitfalls of internalizing white supremacy that apparently too many Black men are wrapped up in.
Black love is tested on every side at the cost of Black women and men.
MALCOLM YOU BETTER SAY THAT SHIT!! YOU BETTER TELL THESE GIRLS WHAT’S GOING ON!!
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
