and while I’m at it why are people saying they’re from los angeles but are from the inland empire or orange county or san fernando valley those are different counties live with it.
the erasure of blackness by latinxs by referring to our separate classifications as “brown people” [meaning brown + black people] is still erasing their blackness. like this solidarity shit isn’t going to happen if we lump our struggles under a false unity that really means we’re too scared to classify our distinctions bc we’re being “separatist”
no. we can’t continue to lump together black+brown people. stop erasing their blackness.
everything is stressing me out right now wow
omg like there’s bitches and then there are sarcastic bitches that are sarcastic for no damn reason like
Ezell was #592 – the 592nd person killed by Los Angeles County law enforcement since 2000, and since his death three more people in LA have been killed by law enforcement for a total of 595. That represents nearly 1 person killed by law enforcement every week in LA. African Americans are 9 percent of LA County’s population but 28% of the people killed by police and sheriffs. 51% of the people killed by law enforcement are Latino. LA County leads the nation BY FAR in law enforcement killings of community members.
a post going around about leaving the house and all that and like….. Sometimes families want you to leave the house bc you ain’t doin shit with your life and my mom has been more prosperous taking care of my brother rather than me and my brother with the expenses of college going…

There’s hella families out there that have lazy ass kids who aren’t doing shit which is like 80% of my cousins and all my tias do is have all this resentment. Like staying at home is not always best. But most folks I’ve met that are still living with their folks aren’t helping around the house, aren’t supporting their parents, or are trying to get out of a toxic situation that they can’t afford to get out of.
a post going around about leaving the house and all that and like….. Sometimes families want you to leave the house bc you ain’t doin shit with your life and my mom has been more prosperous taking care of my brother rather than me and my brother with the expenses of college going on. Like I support myself so that my parents can support my brother and not worry about my shit. Like. Sometimes it’s not so much a thing like “I’m radical bc I stick to cultural norms and don’t leave the house” like miss me with that please.
