I should probably put something here huh?

I'm a twenty-something college student. A young single mother to a precocious school-aged child. I go to school in Philadelphia and live in the area.

My interests include:
My Daughter,
Anthropology,
Photography,
Fatshion,
Natural Hair,
Feminine Empowerment,
Politics,
Crafts,
Interior Design,
Travel,
Cooking,
Comics,
Science Fiction,
Literature,
EROTICA

OKCupid used to be my preferred method of procrastination. I have a boyfriend now so I'm looking for a new way to waste time ... little did I know that tumblr was waiting here for me all along.
*UPDATE* I broke up with that dude. Single!!!

If you want to know what I look like, my tagged/me is below ... it says "page" for some reason. I don't know how to fix it.

i think this is why i had a problem with the claims of cultural appropriation from AfroPunk b/c it’s almost suggesting that African and Indian traditions have never overlapped when they have.

Baltimore Police Claim Handcuffed Man [Tyree Woodson] Shot Himself in Jail

Either they think we are very stupid, or know they won’t be held accountable - either way, this is some serious BS!

This is not the first time either.
They claimed a handcuffed kid who was left handed shot himself in the head from the right in FL.

At this point, I don’t even think they think we’re stupid. They just don’t CARE. They have proven over and over again they can get away with this shit. They don’t NEED to come up with plausible evidence. They go on unpaid leave and go back to terrorizing Black communities. 

“Another similar situation occurred this year in Louisiana, when 22-year-old Victor White, III was killed with a gun in the back of a police car while handcuffed, that case too was ruled a suicide, even though he was shot in the back.”
Yup…
