"A Woman who writes has power. A woman with power is feared. In the eyes of the world this makes us dangerous beasts." Gloria Anzaldua.

blackguysloveblackgirls:

Some black people wonder why ever have a child in
a country that will make their life hard,
a country that will try to justify killing them,
a country that will demonize and vilify them. 

no, make your black babies
raise them to be fighters.
raise them to be warriors.
raise them to be seen.
raise them to be heard.
raise them to be fearless.

because nothing is more terrifying to this world
than a black person
who isn’t afraid to be black.
