Its so sad that I am stuck trying to find something wrong with you because I am so used to getting screwed over by people…Its hard to sit back and realize what a real great person you are..some may call it insecurities…I call it fear.

Ive been lied to, cheated on, lagged on, taking advantage of, ignored, etc. but what differentiates me from most is that I still continue to kill them with kindness, strangle them with truth, and torture them with real love. What can I say? I am a natural born killer :)

This definitely deserves a reblog, no matter what kind of blog you have.

peacelovexash:

Not only is this video terrible, but it is completely and utterly wrong. I know the whole “Why do black men date white women?” question has been going on for awhile now, but this has no answer at all. Black women are ignorant is the only thing I get from this video. I’m tired of being categorized into this stereotype, just like all blondes aren’t dumb, all black girls aren’t ghetto, ignorant, and loud. I know how to respect myself and others, while also stating how I feel about certain things at the same time. In my opinion I think black men date women of other races because they want someone they can control, yeah I said it, every person I ask and every video I see is of a man tired of a black woman holding her own, being independent, and working for what she has instead of waiting for a handout. So basically if you only have one mindset to this question then DO NOT ANSWER AT ALL! Maybe you should leave wherever you are and find a different type of black woman, than one that catches an attitude and wants to get her nails and hair done all the time. 

This doesn’t apply to all black men and I apologize if you get offended in any way, but I’m just tired of this. I honestly don’t care what race you date, but this to me feels somewhat more of a trend. I see no affection or actual “love”. Where do we draw the line?

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Mr. Brandon Garland: "Our Land" by Langston Hughes

mrbrandongarland:

We should have a land of sun,
Of gorgeous sun,
And a land of fragrant water
Where the twilight
Is a soft bandanna handkerchief
Of rose and gold,
And not this land where life is cold.

We should have a land of trees,
Of tall thick trees
Bowed down with chattering parrots

Brilliant as the day,
