My head is throbbing and it’ll probably hurt to sleep on it, but my hair is cute. I got a weave and I feel less stressed about my hair at the moment. But really, it’s super cute. I can’t wait till I curl it since wearing my hair super straight isn’t really my deal. But that’s one thing down on my self care list. Tomorrow I give myself a pedicure and mini facial.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)

And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover

Basically. White folks got some nerve talmbout “you guys can’t separate yourselves it only helps the problem”. Like they wasn’t the ones who invented the segregation tip.

But even non Black POC who don’t check antiblackness in their spaces or just use rhetoric and devices of social change from Black folks get mad too. Like there’s this obligation that Black folks have to stand up for all POC but the same isn’t demanded of any other group.

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

do people say “bad neighborhood” for cities next to all-white high schools where the boys are getting high every day and raping girls? do they even say “bad neighborhood” for cities with large kkk meetings? or is bad neighborhood a strictly anti-black code?

Happy National Poetry Month from this first grader:

We did the soft wind.
We danst slowly. We swrld aroned.
We danst soft.
We lisin to the mozik.
We danst to the mozik.
We made personal space.

Pumzi - dir. Wanuri Kahiu // Kenya

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII  has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.

The main character is a museum curator in the future and also yes I would like see this now please

THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT THIS I DON’T LIKE

The complete short film is on youtube and it’s really good and the end kind of took my breath away. 

Pumzi is such a great short film. I wish there could be a full length version that gives a backstory to the societal conditions and personal narrative.

Why can’t there be more films like this? I’m tired of trash films about white cis het guys with the same narrative over and over again.
