This is my fave picture of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. because I firmly believe this is how he'd be looking at us today. Like... "now y'all know I worked too hard for this." 😒😒😒 We hear you, sir. We can't believe what's happening either.
We talk about the DREAM he had but we leave out how towards the end of his life, he was fighting for economic justice. Let's stop turning him into the Patron Saint of Kumbaya. He died at the hands of a government that thought he was too much, too radical, too Black. Happy #MLKDay
On this day, many moons ago, the world got a bit more dope and a bit more extraordinary cuz @badassboz
was born. Rider. Bawse. Queen 👑. Game changer. Foolish goat 😂. She's all of that and more. She's the kind of person who you thank God for when she crosses your path. That's my sisterfriend. The kind who brushes sand off your face so the world doesn't catch you slipping. Celebrating you on your birthday and every day. 😍😍😍 Love you like perfectly fried plantains. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
So I was watching the #FyreFestival
doc on @Netflix
and posting my reactions on InstaStories and this part laid me out! AND HE WAS GON DO IT TOO. 😭😩
P.S. language advisory cuz: BRUH!!! I wasn’t ready. This whole documentary should be called THE AUDACITY OF CAUCASITY.
Your/you're struggle is especially real. No, I'm not sharing that. 😑
You cannot withdraw from an account you haven’t deposited into. People tend to feel entitled to others platforms and work and treat social media like a big “GIVE ME” world without nurturing relationships first. I talk about this and other things about our behavior on these platforms on the latest ep of my podcast @RantsandRandomness.
Listen wherever you get your podcast fix! 🎧🎧🎧 also, link in my bio.
Was tidying up when I came across this picture that I took at #BlogHer
2014 as part of the Timeline Project. I wrote that I wanted to have my book published by the time I was 30. Bold ask, as I was 29 then.
My first book (I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual) got published by @henryholtbooks
Sep 2016, 3 months before I turned 32 (🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾). Hit the New York Times bestsellers list instantly! Writing the vision and making it plain isn't necessarily about trying to check off an accomplishment by a certain age, though. It's about putting it out and doing the work.
This dream happened later than I wanted but it was right on time. What matters is that it happened. Keep dreaming. Keep working.
12 months and 12 books I'm looking forward to reading. Some old, some new. Some essays, some novels. All the words! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
I wanna be MacKenzie Bezos' friend right now cuz her husband, the world's richest man got caught sending noods to some chick. The "He Ain't Shit, Girl" round the world trip that we'd be going on... it'd be EPIC. The thing of movies! The thing of greek myths!
I'd be all... "Girl. How can we make him mad? Buy the city where he wants to put Amazon's new HQ. Yes, the whole city." 🤷🏾♀️ #PettyWap

Your cantankerous aunty, who disapproves of the foolish goat you brought to dinner and said is your new boo. But I'm facing my front and just looking: A portrait. 📸 @darkophotography
Hell is not hot enough a place for R. Kelly. And anyone who disagrees that his art should suffer is on trash opinion mode.
