You know…. I don’t always want to state my views or opinions on things. But because this IS the field I work in, imma drop a little something. We need to level up as Black People, minorities really, and do more for our communities. Instead of trying to fit our oval asses in a triangular house. 🤷🏿‍♀️ After all of this time, the joke is still on US. A little less, “ tryna make fetch happen” and a little more OWNERSHIP, is what we need. Like, owning all of our content! Owning our tv/radio shows, films, blogs, magazines and businesses. Create and own award shows that highlight our achievements in EVERY FIELD. Maybe then we wouldn’t feel so forgotten, overlooked or not worthy enough of a seat at a table that wasn’t designed for us to sit at in the first place. MOST DEFINITELY easier said than done. But man, just some food for thought. 👁🔮

As part of his reparations to Midgard, Loki is to perform community service. You run a chronically underfunded and understaffed community center for at-risk youth in a poor neighborhood in New York. The last thing you need is some arrogant god from another planet who’s only here because SHIELD told him he has to be. Even if he is in civilian clothes, since a lot of these kids recognize him from the news footage of the Battle of New York, and they’d be even more hostile to him if he were in Asgardian formal dress.
