Brown is beautiful.

a relationship will not cure your issues, no matter how hard young adult books and films try to push that notion on us. if you have depression or bipolar or anxiety or whatever, getting into a relationship isn’t going to cure that or make it go away. person with illness + relationship = ill person in a relationship. please don’t put all of your focus on finding someone to fix you, focus on fixing yourself the right way.

Anonymous asked: you're not black. you're dominican. you try too hard to be labeled as "black"


Thank you, all knowing stranger for telling me who the fuck i am or am not, as a brown nappyheaded person born of two black parents (like black and dominican are mutually exclusive and not inherently intertwined),
and for erasing all of my culture and the last 500 years of dominican history and the majority of us and our ancestry, struggle and bloodshed.
How ever can i repay you for your “wisdom” and governance over my autonomy?
