Ik in novels you kinda live inside the MCs head and experience the word through them. They give you everything. You know exactly how the MC is feeling at all times Personally I like just enough insight to have a basic understanding of who they are and interpret how they feel and analyze the storyContinue reading “My Preferred Storytelling”

So What Are Our Options?
So what are our options? If that isn’t the answer, then what is? So you are voting for Kanye? So you are voting for Trump? Not voting is a vote for Trump. You aren’t providing any answers. You’re breaking the vote. You’re doing exactly what they want you to do. Voting is our greatest weapon.Continue reading “So What Are Our Options?”
Do We Have To Be Black Royalty?
. This post is a critique on the Black is King discourse. I am a whole Stan. This critique doesn’t come from a place of hate or jealousy. Though this critique is centered around Black is King and Beyoncé, this critique can apply to anyone or any project that makes wealth and royalty synonymous withContinue reading “Do We Have To Be Black Royalty?”
It’s very dangerous to limit hate like Racism, Misogyny, Homophobia, Transphobia, etc. to only physical and verbal violence. I think we can all agree that society is fucked up and has been for thousands of years. We were raised, socialized, and conditioned by society, and it has shaped how we think, act, and perceive thingsContinue reading “Nonviolent Hate”
ACCOUNTABILITY IS NOT DIVISION
During this time as we fight to abolish racist institutions, end interpersonal racism and free the black community, there’s some confusion going on. People aren’t understanding who this fight is truly for. People aren’t seeing outside of themselves. Hopefully this post can help clear the fog. We are not only fighting for Black Cishet MenContinue reading “ACCOUNTABILITY IS NOT DIVISION”
Read it three times if you have to! Watching already marginalized people try to marginalize other people is tiring. 1. All three groups are marginalized. Some people belong in two or all three goups. They cannot “choose” to put women’s and or LGBT issues aside. They can’t compartmentalize their identities. They are Black Queer People,Continue reading “INTERSECTIONALITY”
Should Our Star Athletes Go to HBCUs Instead?
To most this is an easy question with an easier answer. Hell Yeah!!! Keep our Black athletes and talent in our schools. I get it. Why allow our Black Student Athletes to get exploited and mistreated at PWIs when they can just go to HBCUs? I’ve seen this discussion on my TL multiple times beforeContinue reading “Should Our Star Athletes Go to HBCUs Instead?”
This past week a Police officer, a man that swore to serve and protect the people stood with his knee on the neck of George Floyd for eight minutes while two other cops held him down and another watched ultimately murdering George Floyd. He was unarmed and he was non-violent, yet none of it matteredContinue reading “#BLACKLIVESMATTER”
ATLA dropping on Netflix this past Friday got me thinking. First, Zuko is has the best Redemption Arc. His outline should be the standard in my opinion. Secondly, I realized Redemption Arcs aren’t always done right. A bad redemption Arc and can really hurt a story. The main problem with bad redemption Arcs is thatContinue reading “Redemption Arcs”
Are Villains A Dying Breed?
First I think it’s important to define what I mean by villains. To me there’s four types of the “bad guy”. You have your Anti-hero. They’re aren’t too good and sometimes don’t have good intentions but they do the right thing in the end. Characters that have redemption Arcs usually fit this group. Next areContinue reading “Are Villains A Dying Breed?”
