In the palm of my hands.

Someday the power in my fingertips will rush back to my brain and remind me I am capable.

Of it all.

The words pile up like stacks of neatly bleached maple leaves. Longing to be free…

Solid. Solid As A Rock…

Solid. Solid As A Rock...

“I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part. He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.” – Pauletta Washington

RUN

RUN

My heart is racing,
but my feet are still.

It’s hard to speak.
It’s hard to breathe.
It’s hard to think.
It’s easy to bleed.

It’s hard to smile.
It’s easy to cry.
The truth remains,
it’s hard to lie…

So I run. RUN…

Away from inconsistent happiness
toward eternal settlement.
The more my heart changed,
the more the pain stayed the same.

So I’m running. Running out of time and self-lies…

Does the story change?

Does the story change?

A reversed visual context of how different this story would be if this were the image showcased to society instead. Nothing to discuss. Everything to reflect.

Say Goodbye to Paula, ya’ll…

Say Goodbye to Paula, ya'll...

The annoying aspect regarding this Paula Deen debacle is that this isn’t a teachable moment. It’s only encouraging closet racist to be “more careful”. The fact that the woman who brought the lawsuit against Paula is white, goes to show (IMO) how accepted this behavior had become to those around her. The real focus of this case was intended to be placed upon the sexual harassment allegations, but of course the racialized remarks were more titilating (pun intended).

Final Thought & PSA: Paula Deen is not being fiscally crucified merely for saying nigger. I was getting better at overlooking the ignorance (lack of knowledge, education or awareness [Webster]), but its hard to understand how some people draw such strong conclusions in her defense while freely displaying their inability to critically think. This isn’t about “a word” and neither is the true essence of racism. It’s about power, authority, influence AND slave fetishes. Paula said it best, “I is what I is” – don’t make that easier for her.

“I is What I is”

I’m at a loss for what I’ve witnessed on The Today Show, but just this one observation: I have absolutely never in my life worked in an environment where responsible leadership allowed ANYONE to regularly and openly address each other using derogatory language. Regardless if they are in-group members or not, what kind of ship (pun intended) was Paula & Family running? Smh #PaulaAndFliesIDoDespise
