I am convinced the official issue now is that we’re not completely and utterly subjugated and downtrodden and I’m just calm angry. Because people want us to be sorry, and we’re only appropriately sorry and They’re only appropriately strong ( and the fact this could be so many flipping people specific and groups is not UN-noted) when we are erased. Someone who wants me erased , who wants me dead , who wants my family my kids made inconsequential
is an enemy.I think that’s a big issue here , people don’t wanna love black women but they don’t want black enemies. So they make us things and hope we agree so they don’t notice what happens if we stand as people and
PUSH BACK, so they consistently manuever blackness in position where agree to comfort agrees to an amount of nihilism and being shocked that we circumvent the bargain. Not easily not without struggle or cost but maintaining a view of blackness that isn’t defined by negation or self hatred.
They want a sorry for that , they want us to belief that that ISN’T a flipping miracle
If you want my life to mean nothing , you’re an enemy and that’s non negotiable . Because ANY concession made your way is agreeing to my destruction and I don’t agree to that
I’m not sorry.
I’m not sorry that you think I’m ugly unloveable unattractive and people still love me form sisterhoods and communities and affections toward me.
I’m not sorry you can’t convince me EVERYONE hates me in hopes I’ll be as sad as you.
I’m not sorry I can see that and tell the difference
I’m not sorry of being worthy to be loved
I’m not sorry you undereducate me, stigmatize me underfund me and we still trying to get post bacc degrees at a growth rate higher than any other group
I’m not sorry that I am living breathing proof that no matter what you say or your momma says , yeah your daddy, your brother, your beau,your so wanted me and had me whether I wanted it or no
I’m not sorry for what that says about you if you bend over backwards to protect and love them cause their family even though I am too
I’m not sorry to find pleasure and joy in live after all that and you still have to flit form thing to thing
I’m not sorry about what that says for you when you can’t sit in the skin of your manhood cause of what you do to me
I’m not sorry I surprise you even after centuries of coexistance
I’m not sorry I’m a person instead of a caricature
I’m not sorry we’re doing just about EVERYTHING with NOTHING. And you’re doing NOTHING with EVERYTHING
I’m not sorry people still listen. I’m not sorry I use things that you can’t buy . I’m not sorry you haven’t destroyed it.
I’m not sorry I can still love you as you hate me
I’m not sorry you love me as I can’t be bothered with you

“The Universe is in perfect order. The stars, the moon, and the sun are all operating in perfect Divine right order. There is an order, a rhythm, and a purpose to their pathways. I am part of the Universe; therefore, I know that there is an order, a rhythm, and a purpose to my life.”—Louise L. Hay (via bodymindandsoul)
