THANK YOU, BLACK SAILS…


For a blue eyed main character whose love for a dark skinned, black woman knows no boundaries.

Silver has sacrificed himself and a treasure for Madi. He isn’t self-conscious or worried about what others think when it comes to his love for Madi. Hell, he even told the Queen Mother! (Thank You Black Sails). 👏🏽🙇🏾‍♀️

Without hesitation or ceremony, Silver has declared his intentions. Mores, laws, haters and a war be damned!

Their’s is a Revolutionary Love. They are a united front, in all things. For them, there is never a question of trust! Iconic. #ThankYouBlackSails

So i just came out to my dad abt being nb, and he said something really wise about names, i think.

He said “Gifts are not obligations. You give things to people, and you hope they like them. And your name was a gift from us to you. If it doesn’t work for you anymore, you’re not obligated to keep it.”

and i just thought maybe other people could use hearing something like that.

rape being used as a weapon of war is so heart wrenching. it was used during the partition of india, the french used it in algeria, serbians used it against bosnian women, it’s being used right now in syria and what’s so heart breaking is the fact that women choose to commit suicide because of the possibility of being raped. humanity never learns, we really have failed.
