“The Poem Prayer For Her is by Brooklyn Poet Shane Romero. The poem is about a girl from Khartoum, Sudan and his amazement at her history and journey. The poem explains how before her, he knew nothing of her culture. It displays detailed imagery about her journey from Sudan to New York and how all he now knows and still doesn’t know is what has made her so beautiful.”
so, let’s answer the million-dollar question first: yes, the poem is about yours truly ahaha. but the actual important thing here is that Shane is my thugged-out neighbor and a great friend, and no one is ever tryna care about us little Sudani girls so I think this poem was a really gorgeous gesture. what I also think is that you should vote for him, and we’ll get three-for-a-dollar ice pops at our bodega and toast your kindness
Yo help my homie Shane win this contest. I can guarantee that it’s worth it.
Wayne Brady calls “bullshit” on Bill Maher.
I would be happy if anyone beat Maher’s ass in public, but especially so if it were Wayne Brady
and more context from the article:
Maher first explained his desire for Obama to be a “real black president” who “lifts up his shirt so they can see the gun in his pants” during a monologue in 2010. Subsequently, Maher referred to Obama as “your Wayne Brady,” a characterization that put into question the African-American credentials of both Obama and Brady.
“I’ve respected him as a comedian, and what he does on HBO is great,” Brady told Hill. “But when he starts to drag me in, to use me as the cultural linchpin of his not-black-enough argument, that’s bullshit.”
Fuck Bill Maher he’s just as racist
Ugh, this = my life lol

The series ‘Emissio’ explores the aesthetics of astrophotography through using conventions derived from Hubble images and highlights the way in which the astrophotograph itself is highly constructed.
On reactions to her weight loss:
I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, ‘Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous’. I’m like, ‘I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing’
This quote. Exactly why I dislike before and afters. Why are you to judge a woman solely on her appearance, and deem her as ‘beautiful’ after she has lost the weight? Beauty is not defined by a low weight.
i have rebloged this 20million times and i will do it again
Weight loss or gain doesn’t make a person beautiful.
