my family immigrated from Somalia to the US in 1992 with nothing but a passport for a country that was a shell of their youth and their bodies my dad worked 80 hour weeks while my mom fumbled to learn a language that her tongue found difficult to bend to year after year we slowly had more and more and began to live comfortably our first place was a dilapidated 3 bedroom apartment with 15 people living in it we literally slept in beds like sardines for the first few years of my life my parents are the image of America that everyone needs to see

Happy Immigrant Heritage month from your local Somali neighbors.


As a proud member of the Lupita Army we will drag you.
This shriveled up bitter black man who hasn’t had anyone check for him since 1992 needs sit his Rogaine needing ass down.
Who says you are even in Lupita’s peripheral vision, you a desperate thirsty fly on her wall.
Gilbert Arenas who? Who is this nigga using Lupita name as a come up.

Lupita Nyong'o is an Oscar Winning Actress. She is high paid movie star. Your not even in her level to speak her name.

Black men be loving them some light skin ambiguous black women until they find them a perky blonde white women.

Black women been done with y'alls no loyalty white women loving asses, and needing black women to do your emotional and physical labor.

Bye bitch, good luck protecting yours from white folks when they pull a “get out” on you.

As if Dark Skin Black Women weren’t in the streets fighting for your lives. Who the fuck created BLM? Who the fuck created the Civil Rights Movement? Who the fuck was freeing black people from slavery? Who the fuck were fighting white colonizers?

I done y'all, I’m done with these fucking niggas. #BlackMenBeenTrash

A while ago someone pointed out the similarities between the Sudanese traditional fabric & a Guntiino and I see there’s another one as well, I also found a similar traditional cloth that Maasai warriors wear in Kenya.

I appreciate Lupita so much. Representation matters y'all ! It really does. Idc what anyone thinks, but, Lupita changed a lot of lives of little dark skin girls. She’s so beautiful ! I can tell you right now that thousands of girls are waking up more confident than they were before, because of this lady. From the skin, to the short natural hair ✨ she’s ICONIC
