You win some, you lose some, but you always live to fight another day.

In the end there doesn’t have to be anyone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to.

Hope this is true. It should be cancelled really

Hire some damn folk who actually know how to handle black culture without putting other black people down.

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.

Been working on these for the past couple of weeks. The beginning to a fairy tale idea that I have going on in my head….not really sure where I’m gonna go with this, but here is the beginning of it!

Don’t mind me, just heavily breathing over these stunning pieces
