Black History Month is triggering.
This is the one time a year that you see top notch brands finding ways to make their non-inclusive selves all inclusive.
It’s hurtful and sad as hell.
They think that if they use an image of a Black person or an African print they’re paying mad respect to the culture.
Or if they say POC instead of just saying Black, they’re somehow being more inclusive.
I hate the term People Of Color.
Call us Black God Damn It!!
I am not your person of color bitch… I’m Black… Nigga!
My culture is copied and paraded for profit to the highest bidder and at any moment I could die just by the color of my skin.
I’m a motherfucking prize, Bitch.
What other culture or population of people do you know like mine?
(All the colorful ones, I tell ‘ya that!)
A culture and population that is so hated, so suppressed, it’s so robbed, so fucked royally raw and still shines.
We are Blood Diamonds
