Oh wow, I checked my inbox today and had so many wonderful messages waiting for me. But they were all from AGES ago, and just suddenly appeared. I’m not sure what is going on with my asks/fanmails but I am extremely honored that all of you have followed me. Your kind words have made my week! xoxx
A last-of-the-year thank you to those who have been friends and inspirations to me and just plain brighten my day.
OH MY GOD!! I just saw this! I am so honored! Thank you very much!
I just can say i’m truly shocked by the answers i get, it’s indeed a fact that black people still get raced by white people and we all know that is very much a big problem in many countries
But when you suggest that white people cannot be raced is denying or either not wanting to realize that that they too get raced when found in situations were they found the person to be vulnerable and an easy target
Also, someone mentioned that when i said i come from black people it was stupid, my mother and other members from my family are black and two uncles are married to black women
They have all the right to express their opinion after all….I too have witnessed racism towards white people, and i still believe is a fact that we can’t ignore
isolated events should not be construed as being indicative of something more widespread. also- if you’re half black you’re half black. but to phrase it the way you did, makes one wonder if you’re ashamed of being half black (which nobody ever should be. i too am half black and extremely proud of it). embrace your heritage, don’t simply say “i came from black people.”
and because i think there is some confusion here:
unfounded beliefs + irrational fear = prejudice
prejudice + institutional power = racism

- They say that she loved intensely… - That she was abandoned… - That she committed a horrible crime… - That she shed the blood of her own children…
But, just who was this woman whose face could not be discerned? Why did she cry so pitifully? According to the story, there was once a beautiful native woman who fell deeply in love with a Spanish gentleman. The gentleman felt a great passion for her, but relations between a nobleman and an Indian woman was positively regarded with disapproval, so he maintained his romance with her in secret. Three children were born to the mother, who adored and tirelessly cared for them.
Over time, the woman sought to formalize her relationship with the gentleman, who began to evade her. She soon found out that he had agreed upon a convenient marriage to a wealthy Spanish lady. Humiliated by the man she loved so much, the woman was driven totally mad and drowned her three children in a river. She committed suicide afterwards. At the gates of Heaven, the woman was asked about her little ones. “My Lord, I don’t know where they are”, she replied. Thus, she was condemned to search for them for all eternity. (x)
Gods die. And when they truly die they are unmourned and unremembered. Ideas are more difficult to kill than people, but they can be killed, in the end.

Hail, Huntress whose arrows fly truest,
Hail, Cold One whose heart beats blue fire
beneath your breast of snow.
Hail Skadi, whose tracks lead us beyond the white cold,
into memory, into forgetting, into slow sleep.
