Sex And Systems

Plenty of times, is how many times I’ve fucked the system. The system deserved it. The biggest mistake you’ll make is to underestimate me. P.s I’m from NYC we don’t do that punk shit, we’ll run pull up when disrespected, with our names attached so you know who learned you. When’s the last time you stood up to the man, or some hierarchy that does people dirty? Via: Nevermind My Mind

Everyone Wishes

“Everyone wants the stars. Everyone wishes to grasp that which exists out of reach. To hold the extraordinary in their hands and keep the remarkable in their pockets.”

Sister Sister Feminism

Let them know Tia…or Tamera. I forgot which one said it. Been binge watching this on Netflix obviously.
Put some respect on these WAPS, we are not inferior beings. We deserve to be treated with human decency, we are not objects.

New Season Who Dis?

These designs scream Fall is coming. Usually we associate darker colors with cooler seasons, so this is a cute take. Like most black people, I knew summer was over when I saw how ashy my hands were today. Shit was wild. Shout out to my Asian sister, after doing my nails she hooked me up with oil. Time to get a new tube of Trader Joe’s hand lotion. Which set do you prefer? Via: Goddess Provisions (Top) Munchis Love (Bottom)

This Is Paris

Riveting.

A documentary created consciously, with thought. The hotel heiress proves again, that she’s one of the most fascinating people you will ever see. Personally I’ve watched everything Paris has done, including The World According To Paris. The way she cursed out Brooke Sheen I knew she was a New Yorker, when angry we don’t mince words.

This Is Paris is so relatable I started to freak out: the trust issues, believing abuse was love, dumbing myself down for other people to be comfortable, putting on a mask so when you get hurt it hurts less (after all they were tearing down the facade, not who you really are). I didn’t expect my heart to break, but it was always very obvious to me that Paris is highly intelligent. To be the architect is to be ten steps ahead. I watched her build TMZ on her back with her equally enthralling crew. God those were the days, we still reminisce about them now.

This is a moving masterpiece, one that reminds you not to judge, that women are more than objects and vulnerability is strength. I just wanted to jump through the screen and hug her, as well as those who suffered abuse at Camp Provo.

Three unexpected features that steal the show:

  1. Kathy Hilton’s Outfits: Whatever that silver get up was when she was decorating the Christmas tree, I NEED it. Glamorous as per Pisces female usual.
  2. Nicky Hilton: Just a real one. Sage, gangster and grounded. A regal energy you can’t take your eyes off of.
  3. Sheeraz Hassan: Just wanted to pick his brain. Super intelligent.

Brown face
Black skin, black braids
Black waves, black days
Black baes, black things
These are black-owned things
Black faith still can’t be washed away
Not even in that Florida water

Monday Motivation

A dreaded day it was, until we got locked down in a pandemic. All the things we took for granted stripped away. I’ve decided this day for me will serve as a reminder to live my purpose. What a beautiful thing to do. What is the purpose of you? Via: Milkshake Patchwork

Stoner Sunday

When you’ve got the munchies, but no snacks. That is all. What’s your favorite doughnut spot? It’s gotta be Krispy Kreme. There was one on 86th and third once upon a time. The workers were always so kind to us and gave us stoner kids the messed up, warm ones for free at closing time. We were grateful and our tastebuds delighted. Via: 2000s Fashionista

Growing Up Black…

Meant spending 125 hours of your life watching all of these musical biopics. Yes each movie was 41.66 hours long. Deadass lol. Leon was making that music and that money. Usually these stories were viewed whilst sitting on the floor between your mama’s legs, or on a hard ass chair while she did your hair (for me it was braids). Talking about “you tender headed” when the reality was you dead pulling my hair too hard. And yet I loved every second, because I watched it over and over again. Am I right? Which movie was you favorite? Via: The Jacksons An American Dream (90s History), The Five Heartbeats (John Shaft 1971) & The Temptations (Shadow Act)
