ramblingsofanurbanjawn: Today my apartment caught on fire and I lost everything. Well, I dont want to lie. My two favorite pieces of furniture (two end tables) and most of my books/dvds/music all managed to be salvageable. I think. Once the fire trucks left and I dealt with Red Cross, I had to dip. I just couldnt be… Do something.
Because of Reasons. Because of Reasons.
I’m not a Jill Scott fan but this is one of my favorite songs in the world and it is singing my life right now. It’s on repeat because of reasons and has now become the ringtone of the reason so that when the phone rings, I’ll be reminded and I won’t answer. Slowly surely, I walk away from that old desperate and dazed love caught up in the maze of love the...

If Romney won Roe Vs. Wade, Planned Parenthood, Marriage equality, social programs for the poor etc. etc. etc…. these things would have been done away with. That’s a reason to be upset. With Obama, you get the same black guy you got before… again. The same one. you know? From before? The one that didn’t make the country implode. The one that killed Osama Bin Laden (Shit...
The White People Mourning Romney tumblr was funny for like a day and then it started to get really sad. Then it started to get really depressing. Then it started to get really disgusting. I’m so glad I don’t know these people or anyone like them.
whitepeoplemourningromney: Basically, dude is looking for a way out of this engagement and Romney gave him one. “Yeah, baby I’m scares too… we should call the wedding off coz how can we get straight married when Obama is making everybody get gay married to aborted babies? It’s just not right. So when can I get the ring back?”
I became a US Citizen in January of this year. Tomorrow is my first time voting in a Presidential election. I can not tell you how incredibly honored and humbled I am to have this experience. Say what you will about the process and the campaigns, all I know is that people who looked like me died and were beaten for this right. I will use it every single time I can. Long after Obama is no longer an...

Barack Obama Being Adorable with Adorable Children
inkognegro: ckherm2: alexleo: There’s no consensus on POTUS’s first four years. Folks are pretty split on that issue. But as a person, Obama is winning. Dude is just down to earth than a mug. Kids don’t have fun with curmudgeonly old farts. Meanwhile Willard Romney is out here making Babies Cry all over America… Amazing.

thehazelnuttt asked: Excuse me for giving your piece the wrong name. I found it that way. I think you are beautiful. Your work is so true whenever I'm immersed in it I know I'm in good company. I can't truly answer where I find your work, I honestly don't know, I search for it and when I stumble across pieces like "I want to kiss you", I have to share. Have to! So thank you. It's...
