“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening[…]Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.” — Alice Walker

I would often watch this show with my mother, trying to categorize my future self and friends as these characters. I didn’t fully appreciate or understand the complexity of their friendships until I got older. I did remember my mother’s sadness when the show stopped airing new episodes. I also didn’t fully appreciate or understand that even grown Black women needed to see diverse representations of themselves and their friendships on television. 

Shouts out to my inbetweeners

You’re a black girl. You like indie music, you dress differently than your peers but you aren’t quite “Afro punk” enough.

You watch anime, read graphic novels but you aren’t quite “nerdy” enough.

You read Nylon mag, paper mag, etc and like what you see, but hate that you…

His anti-racism views and work are often totally ignored by historians.

So, I'm on twitter, and I see some black dudes throwing shade at black girls for crushing on Jesse Williams, citing the only reason we like him is because he's "light skinned with green eyes."

lovelyandbrown:

My, my, my. Isn’t THAT the pot calling the gotdamn kettle black.

So when black girls come through and stan for a lighter shade black man (who is actually more sexually appealing right now bc of his activism, not his eye color) WE are petty and colorstruck?

The irony is NOT LOST ON ME.

Black…

and also like jesse williams is just fine.
like EMPIRICALLY HE FINE.
and he’s WOKE? that’s all i need to know.
the hypocrisy is rich though.
