Remember that because we exist and decide to live our life out loud that racist white folks and many cishet black men feel threatened by our presence. I want you to continue to live life freely and show them that we’re not going anywhere! Always remember that there are people in communities (especially ours) who will ride for us until it doesn’t benefit them anymore. Remember that many people in our own community want us to “put our blackness first” which is a foolish statement seeing as though we’re black and queer 25/8. Live a beautiful life and live in your truth. Don’t let these people tell you how you should act or what you should do. Do you and know that’s all that matters!
Also remember that Tariq Nasheed thinks that lettuce, guacamole, bacon, and tomato sandwiches is what’s being used to push the “gay agenda.”
Happy Black History Month,
