black dike

It’s funny because all the thing this persons said, I love about myself.

I thrive in my naps

Never have I ever been so interested in what spirals and curls my hair could create

As I rub my fingers through it, I am reminded that no one can tell me I do not belong; I am unapologetically BLACK.

That the nearest people,

biggest influences and mentors, black and other

Most beloved are the women in my life.

MANGIRL was a little out there but you see my rage.

You see my blackness and you see my angry,

Simply from a Facebook profile (wait until you hear me speak)

All of my intersections were under attack; gender race and sexuality.
