When Shakespeare wrote sonnets to his dark-haired mistress, he wasn’t saying that blondes were ugly, he was merely pushing against the notion that only blondes were beautiful.

Margaret Atwood, “Spotty-Handed Villainesses” (1994)

Variety in literature is what makes it believable, and it’s that believability that keeps us wanting more. By all means, write about the cisgendered, heterosexual, affluent, white male; there’s nothing wrong with that. But don’t only write about him. Write about the women, write about the Indigenous Australians, write about the asexuals, write about the transgendered people. By writing about difference you are celebrating difference, and difference is the most believable aspect of life.

Alan Turing was not only prosecuted, but quite arguably persuaded to end his own life early, by a society who called him a criminal for simply seeking out the love he deserved, as all human beings do

"I’m 23 years old. I might just be my mother’s child, but in all reality, I’m everybody’s child. Nobody raised me; I was raised in this society."

The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders contains a wealth of names, dates and events detailing the use of COINTELPRO style tactics by the FBI against a generation of political rap artists.FBI illegaly spyed Tupac and black panthers/activists.It is believed that Tupac would lead a revolution if he wasn’t killed.Indeed he had mind of a general and heart of a soldier.

"We learn all our gang shit from the goverment"

You all got to know that America is mean,FBI si mean.FBI assasinated Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X.Tupac talked about that in his songs,so get the real message instead of just “thug life”.It goes deeper than that and you got to know that.

"I told em fight back, attack on society
If this is violence, then violent’s what I gotta be
If you investigate you’ll find out where it’s comin from
Look through our history, America’s the violent one
Unlock my brain, break the chains of your misery
This time the payback for evil shit you did to me
They call me militant, racist cause I will resist
You wanna censor somethin, motherfucker censor this!
My words are weapons, and I’m steppin to the silent
Wakin up the masses, but you, claim that I’m violent”
