There's not much too interesting regarding myself. I work and go to school. I'm Black, a (cis)woman, lower class. I am partnered. I spend too much time on here and neglect my drawing/art and sometimes my homework.
You will see fashion, hot people, hair styles, food porn, random info, social justice and Black culture (and other POC) stuff too.
If these aren't up your alley please don't hit the follow button. That's all you need to know, stranger. Inbox sometime to know more. I am sickeningly polite, unless you're an outright dipshit. If you like art, swing by my second blog, artsage.tumblr.com. For art commissions, see my personal art blog artsoulfood.tumblr.com.

“This war has brought us pain, and suffering, and loss. But its also brought us together as soldiers, allies, friends. This bond that ties us together is something the reapers will never understand. It’s more powerful than any weapon. Stronger than any ship. It can’t be taken or destroyed.”
A Dutch ship carrying 20 Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, on Aug. 20, 1619, a voyage that would mark the beginning of slavery in the American colonies. The number of slaves continued to grow between the 17th and 18th centuries, as slave labor was used to help fuel the growing tobacco and cotton industries in the southern states.
In fact, African slaves may have been present in England’s North American colonies earlier than 1619, but Rolfe’s letter is the earliest hard evidence of the presence of slaves.
395 years ago Africans were put on this road of murderous oppression and we’re still fighting everyday to be seen and treated like human beings and not cattle.
A Danish performance art show that makes use of blackface to alter the ethnicity of participants has been banned in Sweden due to public outcry about the racism involved. Called “Through Different Eyes”, the project aims to highlight the realities of discrimination by making people ‘assume’ other identities in a public space.
Although the project does include non-white people taking on white identities, in the case of the reverse, resorting to such offensive and unnecessary extremes only highlights one thing: that the voices, stories and experiences of the racially oppressed are not enough evidence of racism on their own.
