Unapologetic Black Femininity


this blog is a portrait of an an unapologetically black
and unapologetically feminine woman, who happens
to be pink and grey. (and YES i know it's the European
spelling.)

"Pink" stalks me and always eventually comes out:
bright, colorful, optimistic, full of love for life, baby
animals, cuteness, hugs, and feelings.

Grey is the frowning undercurrent: angry, irritable,
cutting, dry, and philosophical.


everyone knows i love correct grammar, don't tell
anyone i really love fashion, and various forms of art
are my various forms of speed, cocaine and heroin.

Black Power, Praise Jesus, Death to Capitalism and
feminism isn't just for women.

also, sex will eventually come up. i said "Unapologetic". I meant "Unapologetic."

"So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."

Hari Kondabolu’s joke about the British colonisation of India [x]

This is a perfect way of illustrating how colonialisation works, it it’s brutal and intimate. It’s degrading.

In this funny, poignant talk, Brené Brown explains what makes us feel a sense of love and belonging. It’s a powerful reminder (especially for all you Type A’s out there) to embrace the messy and unknown, even when that leap of faith seems scary or uncertain.

Beautiful words from Brené Brown’s TEDxHouston talk to inspire you this week.

I have no modesty at all. None. It’s a learned affectation. Very dangerous. ‘Modesty’ is put on from without. Very dangerous…because life will slam a ‘modest’ person against a wall and the modesty will drop off faster than a g-string will drop off a stripper. Humility is the thing one wants. Humility comes from within, OUT. Not out, ON. Humility says someone was here before me. And I am here. I have something to do. I too have my responsibilities. And there will be someone coming behind me who I must prepare the way for.
