"For Women Who Are Difficult to Love" - written and performed by Warsan Shire.
You are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

Anonymous asked: Why do you keep dividing human with your disgusting ethnocentrism, how can you be proud of something you've been born with ? I don't care your skincolor, you shouldn't care about mine, we're all humans, and your love of your so called "culture" is one of the last thing, with religion, that keeps humanity down with division. A melting pot of culture is the best thing that can, and will happen to the planet Earth
Wow, it’s almost like you don’t fucking know what you’re talking about at all. It’s not like pride and proper representation in the face of destructive violent ideology like white supremacy pervading culture is a moral imperative.
But you’re right.
If we just ignore it, and embrace assholes like you, your racism will magically vanish away.
Whenever, someone like you claims ‘ethnocentricism’, I know it’s because you feel personally insulted that someone had the audacity to centralize PoC for once. ‘We’re all human’ only seeks to assuage the feelings of those society already considers human.
I know you’re a complete piece of shit: ‘so called “culture”’. Trying to delegitimize us all while trying to sell us your colourblind and white supremacist bullshit. You know what keeps humanity divided? Literal scum of the earth like you, who only see value in what they deem worthy. Your ideology is a disease that you continue to pervade to those around you. Make no mistake: hostility is the only thing you will get from me.
If you didn’t care about my skin colour, why would you have a problem with diversity, and pride in the face of adversity? Yeah, let’s have a straight pride parade.
Right, a ‘melting pot’ is ‘the best’ thing: because then everyone will be racially ambiguous and white-passing, bow and concede to your white supremacist standards, and no one will look overtly Black? Is that what you’re saying?
You disgusting fucking Nazi bigot. Take your gross assimilationist colonialism elsewhere, you fucking cracker.
Oh, Damn this is it. This is why I follow shitrichcollegekidssay
Two Brooklyn cops sideswiped a parked SUV, then arrested a man sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, accusing him of damaging their car, a suit charges.
And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.
Robert Jackson, 31, told The Post his nightmare began when a police car heading the wrong way on one-way Watkins Street in Brownsville scraped against a parked Ford Explorer, which belongs to his girlfriend.
Jackson, a maintenance worker, said he was sitting in the legally parked car outside of his apartment when the accident happened. He got out of the vehicle and walked up to the officers.
“I was smiling, like, ‘How’d you run into me?’ ” he recalled. “Then the cop said, ‘Dude, you ran into me.’ ”
“I just wanted them to fix the damage and apologize, but it didn’t turn out that way,” Jackson said. “They were trying to cover it up.”
At that point, things got even more surreal.
The two cops checked the block for surveillance cameras before arresting him for destruction of city property, according to the lawsuit filed by Jackson in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
“When they thought no cameras were on. I saw their gloves go on, and that’s when I was arrested,” Jackson said.
But fortunately for Jackson, the officers, Christopher Oliver and Shazad Shigri, missed one camera on the home of one of his neighbors, Jackson said.
whattttttttt the actual fck is up with these crackheads called cops in NY?
I am the stone that the builder refused
I am the visual, the inspiration that made that made lady sing the blues.
I am the spark that makes your idea bright,
the same spark that lights the dark
so that you can see your left from your right.
I am the ballot in your box, the bullet in your gun,
the inner glow that lets you know to call your brother son.
The story that just begun, the promise of whats to come,
And I’mma remain a soldier, ‘til this war is won.
