taste the coast

C: I think black men to often seek validation from everyone else but ourselves. You can look at any space, and see that that group is constantly say validation isn’t needed to prove self worth. But were constantly looking for someone else to validate that were are beautiful when toxic masculinity won’t even allow us to validate ourselves. I feel like we don’t need anybody to validate us. Not white men not white women not black women not women of color, nobody. Nobody is more disunited than black men. Nobody. We separate ourselves through sexuality, music taste, coast, city, directional region, neighborhood, block, gender, religious practices, and who we date. I would love to see that us to come together.
