I used to ostracize black people who were poor but wanted to appear like hood kings in chariots of big rims, loud speakers similar to fanfare, and crowned jewels around their neck.
I get it now. They’re just afraid of appearing poor. America is not a place to be poor. To be poor in America is a frightening thing.
To be poor here is to be sub-human, different, other. You are something to be tolerated. Someone’s learning moment of what not to be.
The desire for riches in poor, black people is perhaps the equivalent of buying one’s freedom. That is to say, in an attempt to buy one’s humanness.
How terrible is it that in America, for the black person, amassing riches is the equivalent to amassing gasoline, the same fuel white America uses except that white America has a flamethrower of taxes, policies, gerrymandering, white-washing, the legal system, and for-profit-prisons that gives them the power to incinerate black people without discretion.
We are just afraid.
We are just afraid to be poor.
Fight like a woman!

I would like to note to racists that Keres is a language spoken by New Mexican Pueblo peoples. So, you know, an original American language.

Warning for Trans Youth in Southern Ontario
Avoid Dr. Kenneth Zucker of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. He will not help you in any way and upon asking many invasive, disrespectful, and irrelevant questions, he will suggest you undergo “reparative therapy” to “fix” you (pictured above). When he finishes writing his “report”, which can take months, he will refer to you in an extremely dehumanizing manner that makes you out to be some kind of oddity (eg “He seems very interested in having breasts.”) and he will not respect your gender or use the correct pronouns whatsoever. Not only that, but when he requests your report cards and school pictures (???) he will really take his time in giving them back when you ask him to. Good luck contacting him outside of an appointment, too, as he very rarely, if ever, responds to emails or phone calls. He has stated he considers trans women a “bad outcome of gay men.” Don’t waste your time with this transphobic piece of shit.
wow no fucking kidding
what a piece of garbage
