ok but like, i’m tired of ppl telling me to “calm down” when ever i talk about representation in the media.
today one person even told me that i can’t “get worked up” about this all the time and that “it will never change.”
ok so first of all, fuck u.
and second of all—-i CHOSE this fight. i am CHOOSING to speak out about this because it is something that i believe in. i dont want the black girls coming up under me seeing the things that i saw—-believing the terrible things about blackness that i was taught to believe.
if my marching puts even ONE MORE black woman on tv in a position where they get treated as human beings i have DONE SOMETHING. it’s a victory and i wont let ANYBODY take that away from me.
trust and believe if i need to fight till the day i die, i’ll fucking do it.
