You here that music in the air? / Take a train to the top the world and I’m there / I’m home!

Mother and Daughter, India

“i will return home to five graves
with a foreign accent
i will kneel and greet each of them
waiting for them to bless me
i will return home to five graves
sitting where i was once
just a little girl
i will imagine her dancing to welcome me
offering me roasted yam and peppered palm oil
i will remember their smiles
she will remember me
even with my foreign accent
she will still speak Igbo
but
i will return home to five graves
to ancestors who held me as a baby
telling me who i was once in my former life
but
i will return home to five graves
with a foreign accent
where Obianuju means
she came in abundance
i will return home
as half eaten love poems
never a foreigner
always the daughter of her people.”

“Today, the 70th day of this nightmare, some may wonder why we have yet to stop – to stop chanting, stop marching, stop occupying .
But we have not yet found peace because we do not yet know justice. Therefore we, together with our allies, will continue to occupy the streets and the American consciousness until the book is closed.”

“You see, the term “Basic Bitch” and has been Columbus-ed. White people want so badly to be in on the joke of making fun of white people (so as to seem hip and down and to escape criticisms of whiteness, supremacy, and racism themselves) that they picked a group of white people they can lampoon and make fun of, all while distancing themselves from whiteness, a very tragic practice summed up neatly as “White People Be Like ‘White People Be Like.’””

Why I Won’t Stop Talking Shit About Basic Bitches & Pumpkin Spice Lattes by Briana Urena-Ravelo over at Feminspire.

A dangerous & seductive detour from the fight against white supremacy, on which what white person has not tread?
