these images going around from afropunk. ok. they are fab. where are the fat Black folks? (i’m not mentioning queer b/c we are there, i’m not mentioning disabled b/c we are there & b/c not all disabilities are visible, etc.) why post select fotos from that “gorgeous people” spread and exclude the few fat folks who were fotographed? 

as someone from DMV (dc, maryland, virginia) punk music, for me, was always a Black musical genre. the punk scene in DMV was very Black when I was there over 30 years ago. it was also diverse in political consciousness, representation of skin tone, hair styles, musical collaborations, body size, fashion, etc. 

i wonder if james spooner ever imagined his grassroots film would get to this level. what was lost, what has been gained, where else are we going to go with afropunk? it’s exciting, it’s also nostalgic, it’s also missing something.

i need advice. we can’t afford anything but pay by the minute phones. kids are discovering, however, that most other kids are doing texting on their phones rather than calling—which pay by the minute phones does, but it uses up points every time a new text comes in, which can be quite often,…

Also they lightened her up- again. -___-

 and i should edit “i hate seeing brilliant full woc in poor evening wear”

Festival of the Good Death Celebrated in Cachoeira, Brazil

The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honours both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.

added the ‘white woman’ part b/c again, race and gender inform our experiences and thoughts. a Black woman or Asian woman sex therapist elder could have very different things to say (and may not have met master’s & johnson unless they were “subjects” in their research and there was about a 1% rate of Black folks in their work).

my fav quote from this:

“I’m shocked at the lack of connection between people because of iPhones. There is so much less of actual physical connection. There’s less touching, there’s less talking, there’s less holding, there’s less looking. People get pleasure from looking at each other. From a smile, and touching. We need touching to make us feel wanted and loved. That’s lacking so much in this generation. Lack of looking, lack of touching, lack of smiling. I don’t get it. I don’t get how people aren’t missing that, and don’t seem to think they are.”
