Trying to fit into the art hoe mold is p much impossible for most people who aren’t privileged white girls. The cameras, mac computers, fashion, succulents, backpacks, art supplies, car trips all over, etc. add up fast. I love art and artists with every fiber of my being, but coming from a family of black immigrants with 3 other siblings, I just can’t afford it. It sucks how sometimes I feel like my dedication to art can only be measured by how many stuff i can buy to fit in to the art hoe mold. Not to mention how hard it is to find other poc in a movement that was initially made for poc. Like I have no problem with non poc “art hoes” and art blogs, and the creator of the term is ok with it, but I feel like what started off as a cool movement has been altered so that poc are once again the minority, even in a movement that was made primarily for them. So I’m trying to remove myself from the term. I don’t mean to offend anyone with what I’m saying and if my terminology comes off as offensive please let me know!!
