there is a women in China holding a black umbrella so she
won’t taste the salt of the rain when the sky begins to weep,
there is a 17 year old girl who smells like pomegranates and has summer air tight on her naked skin, wrapping around her scars
like veins in a bloody garden, who won’t make it past tomorrow,
there is a young man, who buys yellow flowers for the woman
in apartment 84B, who learned braille when he realized she
couldn’t read his poetry about her white neck and mint eyes
there are people watching films,
making love for the first time, opening mail with the
heading of ‘i miss you’, cooking noodles with
organic spices and red sauces, buying lemon detergent,
ignoring ‘do not smoke’ signs, painting murals
of his lips in abandoned warehouses, chewing
the words ‘i love you’ over and over again, swallowing
phone numbers and forgotten birthdays, eating
strawberry pies, drinking white wine off of each
others open mouths, ignoring the telephone,
reading this poem
someone is thinking
someone finally understands
they never really

ignant as black people
This needs more notes!
THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN SAYING
Like honestly, my first response would have been to tell you to kindly shut the fuck up. But really I agree with you. Yeah, black people are rewarded for portraying ignorance, for being stereotypes, and how can you blame them? Our people have been shut down for years for doing the opposite. It’s a learned behavior. Yeah, you can spout constant crap about how reading will set you free, and all that jazz. But that’s not how life works. Just like dogs, and babies, and fucking any creature out there, you learn from your environment. This post isn’t going to get millions of notes. Maybe not even over the course of a few years. Why? Because just like you said, no one rewards black people for using their brains. So what’s gonna happen? Kids who want recognition, who want to be something if at all ANYTHING, they are going to revert back to what they know. I’m sick of black people and Africans tearing down other black people as if they discovered the fucking holy grail of inside knowledge. Anyone with a brain could understand what’s going on. But it’s about survival, not being Malcolm X or Martin Luther King. The only real examples you have, who not only met awful fates, but forced a new breed of harmful stereotypes for blacks. Being yourself, and being the best you can be is not a privilege afforded to Black people. Not only have white people brought us down, but almost all other races, and most especially ourselves. You know that stupid saying, I don’t have to be fastest, I just have to outrun you. That’s something that not only other races have been doing to blacks, but black people have been doing to themselves. Stop all the internalized hatred. It does nothing but bring us all down. It simply infuriates me, how you can talk about how black people are ignorant as if it’s not a conscious decision to make it. Step off of your goddamned high horse for once. Like really? We’re all supposed to be standing together. But the man, or society in general has tricked us into doing their work for them. This shit needs to stop, pronto.
