Mostly NSFW. Queer, Genderqueer, Feminist, Actor, and Writer. My name's Lucy. This blog is an outlet, don't take it too seriously. I get into a lot of debates, arguments, and long talks. I like cats and if you don't then fuck yourself.
When a white person migrates to Africa, he is going from a position of power, to power. An African coming to Europe lands from power into powerlessness. We Africans cannot do much with our diplomas here. Once I had learned Dutch and went to the job centre, they offered me a position as a cleaning lady. And in the shop it happens regularly that someone follows me around to check that I am not stealing anything. In expensive boutiques I might not even get served. The sales personnel assume I cannot afford to buy anything anyway. Whereas a white person in Nigeria, even if he has no skills whatsoever, always gets opportunities. No Nigerian would dream of offering you a job as a cleaning lady.
Remember that time (as in the 1,345,789 times) that non-American Whites tried to convince me that racism was born in and only lives in America and that White supremacy is not global? Yeah…that time. And that somehow acknowledging this means that the particulars by region, history, culture etc., those nuances, are then erased? Yeah…that time.
Both times I moved here they wanted to hold me back a year. The second time I had taken the IGCSE’s (an international curriculum) and just because they didn’t know it, they wanted to hold me back.
Bless mom for her determination.
I don’t know what to blog, what do you people want?
anti social justice bloggers like to make fun of how ~sjws~ rarely give proper responses to “”critique”” and often just reply with an image or a sarcastic comment
but what they don’t realise is that maybe we do that because their comments are very unoriginal and boring and we’ve heard it all 1000000 times before and we don’t wanna waste time explaining the same shit over and over
The guy in my program that I slept with said mean things behind my back.
What a fucking idiot.
I might get rid of my tumblr. Idk, I’m just not feeling it anymore.
