“Most men can strip a woman bare and make her feel vulnerable. Taking a woman into her darkness and leaving her there isn’t dominance, it’s abuse. It takes a real man to peer deep within her and make her feel safe enough to let go and be who she really is, beneath her fears, beneath her scars, knowing he cares enough to guide her back.”

“So if you didn’t love me,
why did you leave roses on the porch?
To help me get accustomed to the red,
before I bled out from the thorns?”

Gentle reminder


Wash your pillowcases and sheets often
Drink water everyday
Eat your fruits and veggies
Try your best to take care of yourself
Sit out side a bit
Take a small walk
Wash your face
Tell yourself how swell you are

It’s okay to have bad days
I love you and you’re doing Great

In Sociology, this week’s module is on propaganda and marketing.  For homework, we were asked to make a poster for an imaginary campaign either for a made-up product or a current social issue.  This is mine.  

So strong

“Black People hate white people for WHAT THEY DO. White people hate Black People for WHO WE ARE. That’s the difference. That is why Keke is wrong. When we hate, we’re hating the violence done unto to us. When we hate, we’re hating the system that allows for corrupt terrorists to hold more power, over an disenfranchised group. When we hate, we’re hating how our culture is mocked, and dehumanized but is then stolen and sold to us for a fee while being told we’re beneath the very culture we created. When we hate, it’s cause our Blackness is viewed as an inherent difference that is negative, and evil. Black hate is the result of white hatred. Hate Doesn’t Breed More Hate, one hate (white hate) caused and continues to cause violence, and dehumanization against a group of people. The other is logical, and emotional conditioning formed out of centuries, and present day reinforcement of Black oppression. -bitteroreo”
