At last night’s event me and @Barbd_Wyre talked about Ferguson, New Jim Crow, anti blackness, intersectionality and #DanielHoltzclaw.
So much unpacking needed to be done to truly discuss the murder of a black teen by a cop.
You can’t talk about the death of Mike Brown without talking about the militarized police response to protestors.
You can’t talk about the death of Mike Brown without talking about the devaluation of black life and the culture of anti blackness.
You can’t talk about the death of Mike Brown without talking about racism: structural, institutional overt or subtle racism. It’s there.
I’ll be visiting more schools soon to speak. If you attend a college in the tri state and want me to come or help organize a forum. Contact me @zellieimani or email zellie.Imani at gmail
Walking into class when there’s no seat…
trying to leave tumblr
Girls, when you’re feeling sad, just remember:
- a vagina can go back to it’s original size after taking something 20x its size
- a penis will end up looking like an empty potato sack that’s been run over quite a lot if it does
You can do this girl.
Be as resilient as your vagina.
Shine bright like a ‘gina
