Black people (some of us, at least) need to stop thinking that people’s works outweigh their transgressions, especially when those transgressions have ruined other people’s lives in the process.
Usually when people create great things, it’s because they’ve identified a need. They’ve discovered a gap — a space where nothing else like it exists.
This was the case for Juliana “Jewels” Smith, a cultural worker, organizer, writer and educator. She’s also the creator of the comic strip (H)afrocentric, which “stars a posse of disgruntled undergrads of color as they navigate their way through Ronald Reagan University.”
Because introverts are like batteries. We get our energy from within.
In the words of Sister Solange, I got a lot to be mad about.
I think a lot of single women want to rush to get married because they believe too many things they see on social media. They watch too many romantic comedies, post too many #relationshipgoals memes and listen to too much R&B. I know this because I see ya’lls statuses, I hear ya’lls conversations. (I’m generalizing here, and I’m also a cynic, so…)
That being said, let me warn ya’ll single ladies: STOP.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
