People are scared, but they can’t be paralyzed by that fear. You have to fight for what’s right every single day, bulletproof skin or not. You can’t just not snitch, or turn away or take money under the table because life has turned you sour. When did people stop caring? Harlem is supposed to represent our hopes and dreams. It’s the pinnacle of black art, politics, innovation. It’s supposed to be a shining light to the world. It’s our responsibility to push forward, so that the next generation will be further along than us.

Saving Harlem and its Churches

“Harlem, I would say, is the most legendary neighourhood in the United States of America.” - George, Tour Guide 


From a church to a fortress, look at the bars at the windows in the fifth GIF. 

This is happening in London and the Caribbean as well, not the churches, but the pushing out of working class people by local politicians and property developers.  

People are starting to get angry and get organised because they can’t afford to live and work in the city.  Even employers are getting worried because their staff can’t afford to live in London, Deloitte has had to buy property just so they can house their staff.

*stops at Harlem on my way to work*
*sees a black transwoman being chased by a huge, muscular man yelling threats at the top of his lungs, clearly in a fucking rage but luckily he gets stopped by the cops and the black transwomen escapes into the subway*

*thinks about white quirky liberals on here who think the biggest threats to white transwomen <cause they’re not advocating for black transwomen, who are often trafficked and killed> are women being lesbians and women talking about their physical realities.
