  2. This is how you know I’m serious about life right now. A salad? As a MEAL? Those who know me well, know I abhor the concept of a salad as a meal! But here I am…ten days out from my 30th, having a salad for lunch, prepping for a mtg. Arg.

  5. There’s no sadness in the end of a life well lived. Today I am so thankful for the life of Maya Angelou. Her work is woven into my childhood and adolescent memories. I remember reciting Still I rise as a child and each word, phrase, verse burned into me….it was so defiant, so proud, so…exactly what I needed to hear and lord, I devoured her autobiographies! She was a shining example of the power of choice in one’s life. Thank you, Maya Angelou!!!

    By this logic, Black folk aren’t lazy, we just don’t want to work for a country we already made.

"Whites who kill blacks in Stand Your Ground states are far more likely to be found justified in their killings. In non-Stand Your Ground states, whites are 250 percent more likely to be found justified in killing a black person than a white person who kills another white person; in Stand Your Ground states, that number jumps to 354 percent."

Ashanti - West African nation of Akan people
Zendaya - Zimbabwe, “To give thanks” in bantu 
Onika -  Polynesian-Tongan, “Onyx”
Beyonce - Derived from the French maiden name “Beyince”

About me

About my tumblr:

My tumblr is a reflection of my personality and interests. Beauty. Politics. The beauty in politics. The politics of beauty. And anything else I find interesting, funny, or thought provoking.

Just like me, my tumblr is an imperfect juxtaposition.

About me:

Attorney by trade.
Sociologist by heart.
Wanderer. Lover of all things beautiful. Fighter. Observer. Outsider.

Midwest born. Paris formed.
