“I just read part of breukelen blue’s commentary regarding matriarchy, patriarchy, etc. It’s arguments like her’s that make me give side eye to the whole bwe movement.
It reeks, to me at least,of respectability politics and bootstrapping, the same shit that has ruined the black community and pushed black women into a corner.
The first step of any movement-the feminist movement, civil rights movement, gay rights, worker’s rights, etc-is with consciousness raising. As far as I can tell, bwe is still trying to raise the consciousness of black women (of which you are the queen 😊), and policing what black women say and what they should focus on is both disrespectful and putting the cart before the horse. We can’t move forward until we know exactly what we are dealing with.
In terms of parenthood, for example, in the event of a pregnancy and childbirth a woman may have to deal with (in no particular order): unsupportive family members, both in her family and that of the father, job issues (maternity leave, pay inequality); a racist and sexist society that views black mothers as drains on the economy; random people who see fit to comment on you and yours ; and the list goes on. But we can’t deal with any of that until we know of one another’s experiences and speak out about our own. In other words, we need to chill with passing judgment and policing what we will and will not support, as bleu seems wont to do.” constantreader28

e-sta asked:

Your stuff is great. What/who inspired you?

Thank you for you compliment :) So happy that you’ re feeling my art, have a beautiful weekend!

I’m inspired and defined in part by my parents who consistently instilled a love for and recognition of my African antecedent.  

I’m inspired and defined in part by my town, Oakland California and the amazing people of color who fight to live/thrive here. 

And music that speak truth! Like this track by Mick Jenkins and Supa BWE that steady be giving me life.  


littlelansky replied to your post:Honestly, I really love Mob City. Its a fun show…

none of the acting is good but at least Burns isn’t cardboard the way Jon and Milo were & I like Jasmine in theory but she should’ve had more to do than be a target for Teague’s manpain. even re: gangsters MC didn’t do anything BWE didn’t do better

The thing is, I’m sure it was meant to be a really serious, nitty-gritty show like Boardwalk. It came off more as a mashup of the first couple seasons of TWD and a Tarantino movie without the hard-hitting lessons or messages behind it. Which is what made it fun. 

But I see where you’re coming from. I see Darabont wanting to include Jon because he was actually really good in TWD, and Milo because his looks fit his character, but I think they’re weren’t yet comfortable with their roles. Jon’s better at the more forth-coming, extraverted characters, where Milo is better at being the conflicted good guy (which is why I was kind of disappointed at his performance in Gotham) Maybe if their roles had been switched? It wouldn’t be ‘shiny new prettyboy lawyer’ and ‘rugged army cop’ like the writers intended, but I think they would have played the general characters better.

And yeah I’m still a little miffed that Jasmine has all these connections with the mobsters AND the cops and there could’ve been a lot done with that, but instead she was literally a distraction for Joe and not much more.

But yeah, and this analogy is going to sound bad maybe, but Boardwalk is like the best of a product you can get, and Mob City is what you buy to hold you over or try something different, when they’re out of the really good thing.
