    A great piece. It hurts to hear it, but we need to acknowledge the feelings of our beautiful black women in all their glory. They have done so for us

    “to be woman and black means to be the first and last to love yourself. Is to know you’re not desirable to your own kind. I grew up learning how to protect men who hate me. Learned how to be the silencer to their pistol. Learned how to be the revolution spit-shining THEIR spines.” – COMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ON
