remember when it wasn't cool to be smart on tumblr?
i swear y'all follow trends on the internet faster than you can handle in real life… cause y'all was knocking people like me and akilah (theelectricrelaxation) that had the “nerve” to drop some knowledge on y'all on topics like modern day racism and what’s wrong with hip hop and how the government and media has brainwashed y'all… y'all was so quick to attack but now y'all rocking ankhs on your blogs and don’t even know the meaning of ‘em, all into malcolm x without knowing his purpose, wanna speak on modern day racism but only the shit you hear on TV… everybody wanna go natural and be a radical, intellectual african american but only if they have “good hair”, wanna smoke weed and act like you gettin’ money when you was the ones complaining about swag rappers talking about how much weed they smoke and hating on young entrepreneurs starting businesses before they graduated high school… claiming you listen to 90’s hip hop but can’t name a tribe song past “can i kick it”… the list goes on and on… and that’s no shade, that’s just real rap. i’ll see what y'all move onto next, the real ones will remain standing when it’s all said and done.
love love love her. she’s bold and beautiful and not here for the bullshit. i love seeing her face all up and down my blog. what’s great about following her is that she’s not just some kid with a blog; she has this deep understanding that the world is fucked up, something that it usually takes people years to figure out. i love that she does what she wants. it’s amazing and i’m so happy i follow her
i don’t believe we’ve had interactions before, but the blog looks great. seems like a person i would like to get to know.
there is nothing like being an old fart and being inspired by people younger than me. and she, she inspires me. tumblr has this way of creating online personas; you never know if the person someone is on their blog is how they actually live their lives. but i’ve spoken to her outside the blog life and she is this passionate loving young woman who is only here for black uplift and is passionate about her religion as well. she’s a badass and reminds me of a young me. and that arrogant jerk inside of me smiles everytime i make that kind of connection with something she posts
