Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.
And Tyrion’s just like “Respect.”
If anyone can appreciate the value of a well delivered backhanded compliment, it’s Tyrion.
Just got back from New York from seeing Dear White People
Now I think the movie was great and I really enjoyed it They brought up many issues from both society and the black community that need to be addressed however there was one problem they quickly fell into that I didn’t expect to see giving what the movie was supposed to be about
Of course the main character (a black woman) falls in love with a white boy This pissed me off Not because she wants to be with a white guy but because black love is something that is always an issue to actually see Now I understand that she is mixed and has a white dad and a black mom but why can’t she love a black man
Why is it so hard to show black love in a romantic sense Why is it that the white guy had to come in and understand her feelings while the black guy who is strong and can understand many of her issues can’t show concern for her when she’s crying and obviously in need Why can’t you show a strong black woman who understands the issues she faces because of race falling in love with another black person
If you are going to make a movie about race to point out the issues with the media the black community and the world don’t fall into the white savior shit that we already see in every damn movie tv show and book
I’m tired of seeing black people unable to fall in love with another black person Like that shit is so unheard of That shit happens on Scandal on How to get away with murder and damn near any other show that has a black character that is going to be in some type of romantic relationship I want to see black people fall in love black people why is that so difficult
Sometimes Allah’s signs don’t come in the form of grand epiphanies.
Sometimes you don’t wake up in the middle of the night pouring out of a dream clear and sure.
Sometimes the sign comes in the form of a prayer,
where you are praying for his forgiveness as wholly as you are praying for your own.
Where your hands are shaking as your prayer turns the entirety of your body into an earthquake,
partly out of fear of your God and partly out of gratitude to him that
he has finally given you someone that can make your heart feel.
