i am here to fight for and protect brown girls for the rest of my life
It’s so sad that tragedies like this often reflect the reality of being a queer person of color. I’m so tired of violence, especially violence against queer and trans people of color. Their families are in my thoughts.
Stuff like this really makes me weary of ever coming out publicly, tbh. I don’t know if I could handle the threat of that kind of danger. =/ I really hope they find whoever did this and bring them to justice so their families can be at peace.
the reality is that even light skinned girls need to care about dark skinned women being represented in the media. light skin doesn’t always beget light skin. you can be bright as hell and get with a dark dude and your daughter comes out with her father’s color and none of yours. then what? like the lack of solidarity sometimes astounds me what kind of cognitive dissonance is that.
