We all know that Azaelia Banks is problematic, that she needs to work through whatever trauma & deep-seeded issues are clearly sitting behind her fiery words and sharp demeanor. However, I am never here for a trifling ass f*ckboi who is willing to put his career & social relevance before the women in his life. @rza is the worst kind of cisgender hetero douchebag in Hip-hop. To let AB get spit at and insulted by a jerk like @russellcrowe, to be Black, and let a Black woman be mistreated by a White man for any reason, and then LIE about it to protect your personal reputation? Says to me that not only are you not about the preservation of your culture, but you've probably always been an ain't-sh*t n*gga from the get go. So, if on the off chance it hasn't been publicly said on IG, a big hearty F*CK YOU to RZA, and Russell, for being the next two top quality sh*theads in a long line of Anti Black, misogynistic troglodytes that are in desperate need of an ass whooping. Azaelia responded to this by telling #RZA he can drop dead. I won't go that far, but the person who decks this n*gga in the face gets a free dinner and drinks on me.
And with Lazarus, who once was poor, may you have eternal rest. A beautiful celebration of life at @castrobarnewyork for a beautiful Latinx brother. Sleep well, @kikiperra. We love you. #RestInGlory #LatinosUnidos #queerlatinx #LetsHaveAKiki #QPOC #alifewelllived ❤❤❤
You mad fellas? No, seriously, pleeease fight me on this, I need a good scrap to keep my hand skills up. It doesn't matter what kind of man you are, where you come from, what your orientation is, or what you believe. If you ID as Male in a violent patriarchal society, the blame for any woman being subjected to any kind of sexual violence rests on YOU. And ME. And US. WE HAVE TO FIX OUR BULLSHIT AND LET WOMEN LIVE THEIR LIVES. Gay/Bi men, this absolutely applies to us too; our wildly misogynistic attitudes definitely exacerbate the subjugation of women, and we have to stop that shit. Any time you are passing judgment or soliciting a woman for any kind of attention YOU THINK you deserve from her, you're contributing to rape culture. Period. The End. It's high time for us to take out OUR trash and own up to the fuckass behavior that we both exemplify AND are teaching our sons. You cannot fix a problem if you're not going to admit what it is. That's why I'm doing it for you. You're welcome. #MenAreTheProblem #StopRapeCulture #LeaveWomenAlone #BlackGirlsRock #EndViolenceAgainstWomen #CatcallingIsHarassment #LearnConsent #KeepYourHandsToYourself #DontBeADoucheJustBecauseSheSaidNo #RespectWomen #Womanism
No words. Please pray for #Mogadishu and find ways to help. God bless #Somalia. #GodBlessAfrica.
If you're not following my #Facebook page yet, now would be a good time to start. In September of this year, I began a donation initiative called #EverydayGive. It's definitely a self challenge, but I invite my followers to consider it. In general, I am a two meal a day person, and so the money that I would otherwise spend on a 3rd one, I am putting towards a different charity or crowdfunding effort every day for a year. Because I'm invested in the self determination surrounding my identity politic, I am always over-analyzing decisions I make pertaining to this, and so am often confused as to which efforts my time & energy can support. Finally, it was the voice in my head which said, try all of them. #EverydayGive is great because it allows me to research and learn about initiatives / people that I want to help which would have otherwise gone unnoticed. If you're interested to see what efforts I've supported so far, follow my Facebook page, which is @pmurraymusic, and hopefully, you'll take up some new causes on your own. You may think you're not doing anything by donating the cost of a burger and fries to something, but every little bit really does help. I believe that. As always, thank you for all your love. Let's get free, and Make lives better. Everyday
@princessnokia whooped some White racist ãśs the other day on the MTA and I think I'm in love 💝💝💝
So, rather than entertain problematic #AmandaSeales in her temper tantrums about being called out for her classist problematic tweeting, I would prefer to highlight the fact that I took a small part in my first protest yesterday, attending the East Brooklyn Congregations rally for affordable housing for its disenfranchised NYC residents, particularly those who identify as Black or Brown. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to take any pictures, but the rain was crazy, so I just made sure to give a listen and do some interviews. I won't lie, it did feel good to be amongst folks trying to make some sort of a difference, even though we know the systemic roadblocks that are in place which will only fully be dismantled with armed resistance. In addition to this, I will do a post about my #everydaygive initiative on Facebook sometime this week, so if you are on Facebook and haven't liked my public page feel free to do so now. Shout out to Black and Brown women who are undeniably for the cause and not afraid to stand up to the powers-that-be like those who attended the fair housing rally, and like #JemeleHill. If Miss Seales wants to take a cue from people who get it instead of waxing immature and philosophic on her social media, she should take a cue from them.
#yesallwhitepeople. And yes, if you're still watching pro Football but say you care about ending racism, you're lying to yourself.
