Sexism,Patriarchy,Racism and Colonialsm.Full Discourse

!!!!

most aspects of white supremacy and white culture divide the soul. everything about it relies on binaries. everything requires an opposite. down to White god who is supposedly separate from us, such that we, being inherently sinful, must work all our lives to get back in his good books. a white needs a black to feel worthy. a man needs a [slave] woman/gays in order to look upon his manhood and see that he is worthy. We need to begin to discuss the separation created by the white patriarchal paradigm tho. especially where it affects and influences men of colour even. such that they can’t relate/function/think outside this shifty paradigm. Srsly.

Something special happens in the Universe every time you get to share artistic space with the light you look up to; your day one inspiration.
I got to perform a little before lebomashile yesterday at University of Johannesburg, Soweto for an awesome launch. She was absolutely brilliant as usual. And, guess what? ZAZI IS OFFICIALLY THE NATIONAL PROGRAM FOR ALL HIGHER LEARNING INSTITUTIONS. That’s fantastic because it means that the message of good sexual health practices among young women, specifically, will be championed at varsities and fully supported by the government of South Africa. This is what we need.
Read about the campaign here and here.

Anonymous asked: hi - love your tumblr. i'm sure you get asked this a lot but i've only come across you recently. I was wondering how you became a staff writer for rookie, and if you have any tips for a blogger starting from scratch?

Hello. Rookie saw my work and liked it. And, honestly, I don’t have any tips. I don’t consider myself a blogger so I’m not sure how things work in that world. I just post things that I like or that engage my mind, somehow. And, thank you.
