White people praising Humans of New York for ‘humanizing’ the people of the Middle East… what the fuck did you think they were before? Terrorists? Savages? Extremists? Subhumans? It needed to take a white guy with a camera for you all to realize that our people are humans with lives that your fucking government destroyed.
My queen-ness has no exceptions. You don’t have the right to strip me of the title “queen” because you don’t agree with my lifestyle. If I wear my natural hair or a weave I’m still a queen. If I go to college or not I’m still a queen. If I wear makeup or not I’m still a queen. If I wear clothes that cover me or show my form I’m still a queen. If I decide to have sex or stay a virgin until marriage I’m still a queen. Fuck whoever don’t feel me.

2. realize it isn’t going anywhere, co-opt it, engage in it and profit from it
3. obscure its origins and repackage it in such a way that the next generation understands it as a product of white american excellence
