Jesus was Black and so is Cleopatra. Know your history.
Paul Mooney (via msdeonb)
I fux with Paul, but. Cleopatra was Greek and came from a lineage of Greeks, the Ptolemys, who were so anti-interracial procreation that they inbred with their siblings to keep their blood line pure and all the men she had those infamous relationships with were either Greek or Roman.
Cleopatra is a Greek name.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.Aristotle (via kushandwizdom)
Whenever I wanna vent, no one wants to listen. People always switch the topic to something about themselves… I’m just… done.
I was in Miley Cyrus’ 2013 VMA performance as one of the background bears. I had never done anything in a costume with a mask like that before. I mean, I dressed up as a Pink Power Ranger when I was in Kindergarten and I had a mask on but, I digress… I had never been in a performance where I was purely meant to be gawked or laughed at. I will never forget that performance because it is what forced me to draw my personal line in the sand. After our first dress rehearsal in the costumes with the crew, publicists, performers etc watching us, I walked out of the Barclay Center shaking and crying. Thankfully, my best friends, Kelly and Kerri, happened to be NYC to visit me. They were waiting for me and I walked up to them and broke down. I love being the center of attention, but that was something different. I was being stared and laughed at for all of the wrong reasons. I was being looked at as a prop…as something less than human.One of the bears in Miley’s VMA performance wrote about what it was like to be one of the bears in Miley’s VMA performance (via bobbyfinger)
