Kenyi and Romans Crew is this week’s artist of the moment.
I’ll keep this short. I just have a few questions to ask.
My whole life, the statement, “You don’t act black” has followed me, even into my adulthood. My response (in my head of course 😅) would be “What’s acting black? Black’s a color cjemor (love) 😄. […]
I remember going to middle school in America and learning about Christopher Columbus being the 1st man to discover the Americas, while going back to a Caribbean household who had me thinking outside of the box. Can you imagine the confusion? Asking the question “How did Christopher Columbus discover America when there were already people on the land?”
So, I know I cannot be the only person in the world that literally feels that our American news is like a political realty show. Every time I pull up a news article or some sort of news media, the first thing I think is, “DAMN, is this truly what American politics has come to? This is truly reality TV at its finest.”
Freedom… It’s hard growing up in a world where people judge you by looks and stereotype you. A world where beauty is depicted by covers of magazines. Living in a world of materialism and society having an expectation of you being somebody OTHER than yourself; which kills the essence of being an individual. Everybody was made differently, and that’s why LOVING yourself as you are is BEAUTIFUL. That’s freedom! Freedom of loving myself as I am and not having to conform to society’s definition of “beautiful”.
