I know you’ve been hurt, but it’s just possible she’s been as lost and alone as you.

Love this movie

“What they don’t understand about birthdays and what they never tell you is that when you’re eleven, you’re also ten, and nine, and eight, and seven, and six, and five, and four, and three, and two, and one. And when you wake up on your eleventh birthday you expect to feel eleven, but you don’t. You open your eyes and everything’s just like yesterday, only it’s today. And you don’t feel eleven at all. You feel like you’re still ten. And you are — underneath the year that makes you eleven.

Like some days you might say something stupid, and that’s the part of you that’s still ten. Or maybe some days you might need to sit on your mama’s lap because you’re scared, and that’s the part of you that’s five. And maybe one day when you’re all grown up maybe you will need to cry like if you’re three, and that’s okay. That’s what I tell Mama when she’s sad and needs to cry. Maybe she’s feeling three.

Because the way you grow old is kind of like an onion or like the rings inside a tree trunk or like my little wooden dolls that fit one inside the other, each year inside the next one. That’s how being eleven years old is.” Sandra Cisneros (via arpeggia)

“who taught you
that the
value of a woman
is the ratio
of her waist
to her hips
and the circumference
of her buttocks
and the volume
of her lips?
Your math
is
dangerously wrong
her value
is
nothing less
than
infinite.” ‘Greater than’ by Della Hicks-Wilson  (via kiteamuncher)

A 7-year-old Tulsa girl was sent home form her elementary school because her dreadlocks were too much of a distraction, Fox 23 News Tulsa reports.Terrance Parker said Deborah Brown Community School (Principal and Founder Deborah Brown pictured above) officials “hassled” him about his daughter Tiana‘s dreadlocks, until he was told his daughter could no longer attend classes. She didn’t look “presentable, Parker said he was told.However, the school told Fox 23 that Parker knew that it had very strict dress-code rules–especially when it comes to hair. NewsOne reviewed the school’s dress code and it clearly states on page 13 that “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.” Deborah Brown school officials feel the hairstyle could cause distractions, a statement that surprises Parker.
When a Fox 23 reporter asked little Tiana why she was removed from classes, she burst into tears. “because they didn’t like my dreads,” she said. “I think that they should let me have my dreads.”(via NewsOne)

The natural hair that grows out of our heads is “distracting” and “faddish”? Wearing the hair you’re born with…is a trend? I already know that whiteness hates our skin tone, our hair, our bodies, how we speak, how we dance and how we wear our clothes (until some white person does it and makes it cute) but it’s really sad seeing black people enforcing this mess. Out here teaching black children their God given hair texture isn’t acceptable meanwhile rocking a synthetic wig made to look like a natural hairstyle? That makes…no sense.

That self hatred runs deep son

Oh wow, this is something. Sad really.
