"when a white woman tells me she ‘feels ugly too.’ and is seeking to use this as a parallel to understanding what it means to be black in a racist society. my ears do not give her audience or contemplation. because. while she may ‘feel ugly’ in a world that values her skin and her worth above all others. she knows nothing of what it is to live in a world where ‘you are ugly’ while you are being formed in the womb. the depths of hatred for our skin and its extraordinary nature. touch us before we even arrive into the world. this is something you will never know. a world that does not want you to be born simply because of the color of your skin."
I don’t understand why people aren’t interested in Astronomy.
You can look up into the night sky and see a fucking galaxy with your naked eye. You can see cosmic structures that are millions of light years across and if you don’t think that’s the coolest fucking shit then I don’t know what to tell you.
