This project is slowly becoming an explanation of what it’s like after art school.

not here for y’all singing to the heavens about how beautiful Lupita’s skin tone is then turning around and shitting on Gabourey Sidibe or Rachel Jeantel or Whoopi Goldburg or whomever for THEIR skin tone.

if you only like dark skin when it’s on a thin, “properly feminine” body then you don’t like dark skin.

THANK YOU

Here’s a hilarious Helen Keller joke!

Do you know what no one saw or heard coming?

Helen Keller’s radical socialist activism for the rights of the poor, women, the disabled. And so people ignored and belittled her politics. They argued a deaf, blind person could not know what she was talking about. And so they reduced her to the safe story of a young girl who overcame disability, and nothing else.

Wait I mean haha she was blind! How funny.

Paris-based designer Maud Vantours is a master at constructing incredible 3D sculptures and mesmerizing patterns out of paper. After carefully cutting out assorted shapes, she meticulously builds up layer upon layer, superimposing the papers to create intricate and colorful works of art.

I’m noticing a trend.

did y’all forget about

Oh yes, that grand fantasy where POC (mainly black people) allow that one special “down ass” white person to become a part of the clique.

Poc as pets and props 101 

this is what I was talking about yesterday when I was hollerin bout the fetishization of black bodies in white culture

black bodies exist as pieces

black bodies are sex and servitude and spirituality and swag to be dissected and consumed

the mere general proximity of a black body to a white one conveys to the viewer that the white actor has some sort of ability to transverse cultural lines

smh

Let’s not forget fashion’s use of PoC props to contrast how Glamorous the white person is compared to the poor PoC

A bunch of drunk college kids tried to play “Alice in Wonderland”

I cry of laughter everytime I watch this. 

this is my spirit video

I love how it says ‘drunk college kids’ but this is almost exactly how I act with my college friends sober (minus the wheelchair)

Aren’t they adorable! These little babies are new and planted in wooden pots. I’m keeping a close eye on these beside my work desk because I know wood really sucks in moisture so I may have to water these a little more often than the others.

P.S it took me ages to hunt down these names
