I dunnoooo I think you already know that “White is beautiful” don’t you?

Or will it shatter your beauty if I recognize mine?

WELL DAMN

Perfect.

Straight up dedicating this post to allergictofeeling who so exemplifies this post by reblogging a post about Nicki Minaj  image then tagged it “no need to play the race card

please keep your self centered ignorance, micro-agressions and derailing all to yourself


And that super-European monstrosity, North America? Chatter, chatter: liberty, equality, fraternity, love, honor, patriotism, and what have you. All this did not prevent us from making anti-racial speeches about dirty ni**ers, dirty Jews, and dirty Arabs. High-minded people, liberal or just softhearted, protest that they were shocked by such inconsistency; but they were either mistaken or dishonest, for with us there is nothing more consistent than a racist humanism since the European has only been able to become a man through creating slaves and monsters… [I]t seems we are the enemies of mankind; the elite [Europe & America] shows itself in its true colors—it is nothing more than a gang. Our precious sets of values begin to molt; on closer scrutiny you won’t see one that isn’t stained with blood.

Visited the Brazos Valley Black History Museum today before the reunion. This was an exhibit on daily life for Blacks in early 20th century Brazos County. The pic on the left features a WWI soldier & his beau with a caption “The Black Man Is No Slacker.” Indeed. We bled & died to build this country. Don’t let anyone tell you different. (at Brazos Valley African American Museum)

Frighteningly accurate horoscope from Sky_Flwr. A very good astrologist told me a while ago to watch out for Saturn, & frankly, I should have taken that advice more seriously. Still learning to “solidify” myself & embrace my Scorpio magic. Giving myself permission to be a work in progress. I’m not exactly who I envisioned myself at this age, but I’ll get there!

Excerpt from #SeanMartin’s #TheGnostics. I’ve been trying to read my Bible more & learn more about the history of the Christian faith in relation to other faiths. This section interested me b/c it’s another reminder that culture/society/history matter in our understanding of Christianity. There must be room for questioning, which is why I don’t get down with Biblical literalism. To separate text from context is specious. #books #nowreading #christianity #churchhistory
