A kind follower suggested we start up a book club again. It has been a couple years. Would anyone be interested? If so, book suggestion(s)? Like a couple years ago, I will giveaway some…
*Wiggles way into the circle* May I please join?
When you say something smart and people are shocked
When a POC reads a lot, gets good grades or speaks with naturally with an expansive vocabulary and white people say ” haah you are so WHITE!”
What they really are saying is “I don’t associate those positive attributes with being a poc because your people don’t do any of that. Only white people do are capable of that.”
I try to buy healthy foods that way when I eat to fill the void I don’t get fat

I’m so happy that even amongst the chaos going on, people still had the opportunity to celebrate their faith.
Right now, I can only tell you my truth as it pertains to today.
And if you support that truth and want to journey with me knowing that things may change as we walk on this path together, then please walk with me.
But if you want to preserve me the way I am, then walk behind or ahead of me and we’ll catch up from time to time.
I am a woman constantly defining her own truth.
