it’s no surprise that having dark skin is a curse to many black people.
the way some abuse other black folks with darker complexion is vile.
we don’t even need white people to disrespect us since we do it so well.
viola davis is one of my favorite actresses.
her role as annalise keating in “how to get away with murder” was iconic.
the problem is after she was cast for it,
she was told she wasn’t suited for that role because she wasn’t attractive.
it was by the very same people that should have been cheering her on…

i absolutely love this picture of viola.
so viola davis is one of my favorite black actresses,
but as of late,

if you aren’t careful,
you will repeat the cycle.
some of us are repeating a cycle.
we are hurting others because we are hurt.
we expect everyone to do what we would do.
i can admit that i’ve have done it with my friends at one point.
that is not how life works.
we are all free to make mistakes and grow.
what may work for you may not work for them.
i learned that tonight watching “fences”…

i have always been an open book when it came to my emotions.
i know it’s not the “manly” thing to do,
but i’d rather others know what’s bothering me than bottling it up.
with that being said,
i often asked myself:
Are males supposed to be emotional?
it’s like we’re supposed to lie in order to be considered a “man”.
the almighty male!
the one who bangs a lot of ho
les and wears designer clothes!
hear us roar!
well that won’t be me.

thank you to those who continue not to judge me since then.

i like to think support the people in my life.
i’m not one of these who is jealous or envious of my other’s blessings.
well i won’t lie to you.
before i use to be.
mostly when it came to dating wolves.
i’m also not one to throw someone under the bus for climbing their mountains.
hell i think i put most people above myself.
i just like to see other’s shine.
it honestly makes me feel good.
in such a selfish world we live in,
its hard to find selfless people who will be your biggest cheerleaders.
well i saw one last night on the emmys.
her name is taraji p. henson…
