"The next time I am met with a demand for “evidence” when I report incidents of harm as a result of oppression, this is going to be my script: “I am giving you evidence in the form of my lived experience. In so doing, I am asking you to care. About me and about the other people to whom these things are also done. If you care, you will listen. If you don’t, I am politely requesting you be honest enough to simply say that you do not care, instead of obliging me to engage with you in a mendacious argument designed to publicly justify why you won’t.”"
my white protesters please remember that you’re rarely at the same risk we are when you stand up for what is right
Editorial for Mohair South Africa
“After several decades producing quality mohair products, Mohair South Africa underwent a series of brand improvements to give a more fashion forward appeal to the company. Part of Mohair South Africa’s renovation included changing the publics perceptions of mohair and to create meaningful collaborations with innovative designers..

The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.
The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.
In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.
You wanna be my friend? You wanna be in my circle of influence? Let me tell you something right now and get it out of the way to spare us any possible future complications: If you desire to be friendly with me, you’ve got to get on my level. In other words you’ve got to get real.
I do not play games. I’m not here for the small talk, passive-aggressiveness, backbiting or other frivolous mind-games that a great deal of the world seems to love so much. I cannot be friends with people who do not think critically about the world in which they live. I cannot be friends with people who ascribe to dogma rather than diplomacy. I cannot be friends with people who think that any and all ignorance can be coddled, pacified or swept to the side in favor of “agreeing to disagree”. I cannot be friends with people who reject learning.
You wanna be my friend? You wanna be in my circle of influence? Then throw out everything you thought you knew about friendship and step into my court, baby."
things i wish i could say to everyone i meet to spare me from drama

“’No’ is the only control you have as an actor. That’s a big one. And, a good one for me because I’m such a people pleaser, and I’m not so good with boundaries, so that’s definitely something I still work on.”
