omg the racism
@ArtistMarciaX @MoMartin "What happens just about every time, in one form or another, is someone asking me to consider not writing or making work about Black/Indigenous people. Make the concepts about the human experience." And I was like... do people even realize what they're saying when they go on like this 😑 Congrats jackasses, for at least making it clear you don't think BIPOC are fully human.
"I exist, I have a right to exist, and I won't put anyone else in the center of my universe that can kill me.
"Basically. because that's what white supremacy wants, is for my soul to die trying to be something I'm not.
"I have to be stubborn. It gets a bit easier for me with age.
"I also know that respectability doesn't work.
"Beauty isn't real.
"And that nothing I do will ever be enough.
"So fuck them."
