"We as Black people have to tell our own stories. We have to document our history. When we allow someone else to document our history the history becomes twisted and we get written out. We get our noses blown off."
Shaping Up To Be A Good Day
It’s just a typical Saturday at the mall where I work. Just sitting at my booth and an older gentle man walks by and says ‘good morning’ I respond with ‘hello’. He starts to walk away, stops looks back, comes closer to the booth and says “Aren’t you cute” Never have I been complimented so beautifully. It’s usually dirty ol’man jokes, sleezy stares or ‘aye baby’. Sir I would like to thank you for making my day :)
I’m the nicest rude person you’ll ever meet, I don’t give a fuck about anything but at the same time I care about a lot, I hate people but I develop crushes easily, I hate myself but at the same time I’m completely fabulous.
