#Black Lives Matter
The Dora Milaje in Black Panther are based on the Dahomey Amazons, who were the only documented OFFICIAL, FRONTLINE, COMBAT-BASED all-female military unit to this day.
Black women keep winning 😌

I wish there were more images from the Met Gala like this- not just revelling in the glamour of fashion but also acknowledging the human cost of it.
On the one hand this picture is a reminder of how far America has come in terms of race relations, giving us hope for further evolution (which is so sorely needed). On the other hand, it reminds us of the blood, sweat and tears that went into building America's cotton industry. Sadly, there are huge travesties and injustices that still happen in the name of fashion.

If you're struggling with racial trauma, please know that I see you.
I know how hard it is.
I know that a lot of people just think you're being "dramatic" or "political".
I know that it might feel like you lost your childhood.
I know that you may not even really understand what you're feeling yet - I didn't for a while.
I know that you can do this, and that you deserve love and support.

This is a pic of my rejection letter from the New Yorker! I sent some work about the black American struggle and got rejected from a few places. What I learned is people really hate hearing authentic experiences and instead want the sanitized “I’m so thankful now” version. F*** that! I’ll make my own newspaper. I want people to see that things don’t happen overnight, and the struggle is real. Why doubt yourself, that’s what everyone else is for. Joga Bonita ✊🏽
