I want to give a shoutout to black people that have dealt/are dealing with the same thing I’m going through right now so:
Shoutout to depressed black people
Shoutout to suicidal black people
Shoutout to self loathing black people that love being being black, but just don’t like themselves as a person
Shoutout to asexual black people
Shoutout to black people that can’t seem to figure their (a)sexuality out
I’m telling myself it’ll get better someday and I’m telling you now. We’re going to be okay.
Even if it’ll take a while.
And for everyone I support with my whole heart, body and soul (if I even have one):
Shoutout to dark-skinned black women
Shoutout to feminine black men
Shoutout to LGBTQ+ black people
Shoutout to black trans women/men
Shoutout to black people in general
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU ARE AMAZING. KEEP DOING YOU AND DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE.
