"I feel this weird responsibility to keep an eye on you." (i've wanted to rp with you since you friended me!)

(I love new partners. You just made my day!)

Alice blinked in confusion and fumbled with the skirt of her dress, pulling at a loose string. “Always so fragile. So fragile, Morpheus says I be. Believe him, does thee?” She asked, looking up.

Nobody knows how things will turn out.

"Janet, you know how much I love you. I look up to you as a big sister. And this book really, in my eyes, made me see myself as not just the one who went through my experience alone. Every time I would read a page in your book, it would be like a black and white scene of a movie in my head of my life, of something that you experienced that I’ve experienced in some way. It’s really hard for me to express myself to people when it comes to experiences that I had whether it be good or bad. And for you to have written a book about that is really a blessing. It’s like…this is like the ten commandments for us right now. Like literally. It speaks truth. And with truth comes freedom." - CeCe McDonald

Part of what Cece McDonald said to Janet Mock in regards to her important, exquisitely written, groundbreaking book about being a trans woman of colour, Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More. Quote is from The Barnard Center For Research on Women annual salon that featured several panelists.

Ebony Magazine created four epic covers to discuss the aftermath of the murder of Trayvon Martin, salute the struggle and have a conversation among its readers about this. I haven’t received my September 2013 issue yet, so I can’t comment on the actual article itself.

I think the covers are powerful. And as a Black woman, I do want the conversation on Black girls and Black women to be had as well, to be ongoing and also be intersectional. Black women always do. I always reject the lie that our lives are “easier” than Black men’s lives. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t want these covers to also exist. They are important.

Apparently, Ebony Magazine has been receiving some hatred from Whites about the covers. They call the covers “racist.” This is the world that we live in—one where critical thinking on race and racism is adamantly refused. Blatantly.

I tweeted about this earlier today, and the gist of what I tweeted was:

Many White people still think that “acknowledging the experiences of Black people” = ‘racism’.” They have no clue what racism actually is, hence hate for Ebony Magazine. The real anger by some Whites is over the fact that the Ebony covers humanize Black men and Black humanity is contradictory to White supremacy. It forces them to feel guilty. Their external anger is internal guilt. They’re mad that even for a second they question White supremacy. Loving families concerned about Black boys’ safety. How do these Ebony Magazine covers insult or create oppression for Whites? They DON’T.

"You make me feel bad about racism and White privilege. And that’s ‘racist’ you hear!" - some ridiculous Whites

Oh look, stuff to read:

Again, I really like these covers. But I also wish they didn’t have to exist. They exist because of the reality of injustice.

tbh i think one of the reasons why we’re a good fandom is because of KH itself. like it teaches to be proud of being apart of something bigger, that friends are really important, and idk there’s just good role models in the game. and we learn from it, so we don’t like fight or get really cocky and stuff
