There is nothing new under the sun

Il n’ y a rien de nouveau sous le soleil

this is amazing. shows that we are all in sync with our ancestors.

And white people stay trying to say that our hairstyles don’t have any cultural significance or that they created our hairstyles first, Even with all this proof that they wrong

I also like how we can celebrate our hair in all of its textures.

this is so beautiful :D. i’m like how they do the curl former types with some homemade curl former type things? and i love the gender variance of some of these hair styles, both men and women are wearing the same styles often and it’s awesome!

their high school principal
told me I couldn’t teach
poetry with profanity
so I asked my students,
“Raise your hand if you’ve heard of the Holocaust.”
in unison, their arms rose up like poisonous gas
then straightened out like an SS infantry
“Okay. Please put your hands down.
Now raise your hand if you’ve heard of the Rwandan genocide.”
blank stares mixed with curious ignorance
a quivering hand out of the crowd
half-way raised, like a lone survivor
struggling to stand up in Kigali
“Luz, are you sure about that?”
“That’s what I thought.”

“Carlos—what’s genocide?”

they won’t let you hear the truth at school
if that person says “fuck”
can’t even talk about “fuck”
even though a third of your senior class
is pregnant.

I can’t teach an 18-year-old girl in a public school
how to use a condom that will save her life
and that of the orphan she will be forced
to give to the foster care system—
“Carlos, how many 13-year-olds do you know that are HIV-positive?”

“Honestly, none. But I do visit a shelter every Monday and talk with
six 12-year-old girls with diagnosed AIDS.”
while 4th graders three blocks away give little boys blowjobs during recess
I met an 11-year-old gang member in the Bronx who carries
a semi-automatic weapon to study hall so he can make it home
and you want me to censor my language

“Carlos, what’s genocide?”

your books leave out Emmett Till and Medgar Evers
call themselves “World History” and don’t mention
King Leopold or diamond mines
call themselves “Politics in the Modern World”
and don’t mention Apartheid

“Carlos, what’s genocide?”

you wonder why children hide in adult bodies
lie under light-color-eyed contact lenses
learn to fetishize the size of their asses
and simultaneously hate their lips
my students thought Che Guevara was a rapper
from East Harlem
still think my Mumia t-shirt is of Bob Marley
how can literacy not include Phyllis Wheatley?
schools were built in the shadows of ghosts
filtered through incest and grinding teeth
molded under veils of extravagant ritual

“Carlos, what’s genocide?”

“Roselyn, how old was she? Cuántos años tuvo tu madre cuando se murió?”

“My mother had 32 years when she died. Ella era bellísima.”

…what’s genocide?

they’ve moved from sterilizing “Boriqua” women
injecting indigenous sisters with Hepatitis B,
now they just kill mothers with silent poison
stain their loyalty and love into veins and suffocate them

…what’s genocide?

Ridwan’s father hung himself
in the box because he thought his son
was ashamed of him

…what’s genocide?

Maureen’s mother gave her
skin lightening cream
the day before she started the 6th grade

…what’s genocide?

she carves straight lines into her
beautiful brown thighs so she can remember
what it feels like to heal

…what’s genocide?
…what’s genocide?

“Carlos, what’s genocide?”

“Luz, this…
this right here…
is genocide.”

Remember that time Kerry Washington effortlessly left Will Cain edgeless in the arena of debate surrounding Affirmative Action on Real Time with Bill Maher?

Maaaaaan, LISTEN!! That’s one thing I love about K-Dubb: mama knows how to elegantly snatch a wig and READ for the gawds, and ALWAYS with a beat mug!

Will Cain wasn’t ready. Kerry let him know and she quite obviously made her point.

Kerry did go a little wide with her definition of just who should be helped by Affirmarive Action, especially considering that the number one ‘group’ of people benefiting from it are white women. But nonetheless, Kerry did shut it down in there.

Here “wide definition” was exactly the point. No matter how you spin it if used correctly it would still help minorities.

"There gon be food?"

deciding factor in whether not an African American will be attending the event. African American Proverb (via blackproverbs)

followed by : ” is it free? “

(via gang0fwolves)

Followed by “who cooked/fixed it?”

That last one is really important. You can’t get excited about everyone’s cooking.
