Work Woes

Whiteness masked as coloured-ness is not quite as violent as whiteness parading around as itself
But it does make me wary in the same
Guard your shit, and watch what you say
Way that white supremacy does

‘The bus’
When I was too much
Too Black, too full of myself
You made me road-kill

‘of color’
Womanhood in shades
Browns not quite dark, too light for
My kinda treatment

‘Do you know who I am’
I come from niggas
Ex-slaves, and segregation
No stranger to me

Sunny Scape is a safe space for Black women and queer folks. I am committed to eradicating intersecting systems of oppression that overwhelmingly affect people like myself, and doing so in a way that centers the most marginalized of us. That means that I am an activist on behalf of Black and brown queer and trans folks, children, sex workers, disabled folks, people of low socioeconomic status, currently and formerly imprisoned people, and countless others who are pushed to the back burners and relegated to second-class citizenship. This blog and everything within it is absolutely inseparable from the liberation efforts of all the aforementioned groups of people.
