There’s a big difference between an opinion and being factually wrong. Which you are. But your @ makes sense at least.

RECENTLY or not it doesn’t negate their anti-Blackness. And again, 2 Black models over the course of a few years isn’t progressive.

It’s fascinating that white/non-Black people will see maybe 10 Black models featured over 30+ years of catwalks and thousands of white models and try to deny anti-Blackness. DOCUMENTED anti-Blackness.

Just for reference before you assume I don’t know things: “Between Campbell's runway appearance in 1993, and 2008, when Jourdan Dunn took to the catwalk, Prada had no black models in any of its women's runway shows.”

It’s actually true — hiring Naomi Campbell doesn’t negate the decades of whiteness they featured.

You also gave me your time and expertise when you didn't have to, and that gave me hope when I was really close to giving up. I am forever grateful.

You helped me recognize that contrary to what I had been told by own parents that my voice was worth hearing & that BIWOC don't have to quiet themselves. Your work is all at once grounded & groundbreaking & you are a magnetic presence. You have helped more folks than you know.

Just as our society does not trust fat people, it does not trust Black people to speak about our marginalization as a phenomenon that lives within reason and logic.

"BIPOC have a right to safe spaces, we have a right to do so without being gaslighted and mocked for prioritizing ourselves and we must learn that we don’t owe anyone a debate because the debates are often based on our right to exist and flourish."

Behaviors which are common in person for BIWOC—the demands of availability, emotional labor and commodification of our creations and labor (without fair compensation)—replicate themselves online.

These deaths in custody, deaths at the hands of the state, are a logical extension of the state’s use of violence as a strategy of deterrence. The deaths themselves are intended to be a deterrent.

You cannot teargas women and children, separate children from their parents or keep families in custody together on dehumanizing and inhumane conditions, sexually assault women at border crossings, or engage in imperial xenophobic violence and then be “sorry” when someone dies.

Her name was Jackeline Caal. And this, you see, isn’t an apology. If you’re sorry about the loss of a child’s life, you’re sorry about the loss of a child’s life and her alleged “illegality” is completely irrelevant to the fact she was mistreated and died as a result.

A 7 year old migrant child didn’t “die” at the border from dehydration and shock: a 7 year old migrant child was killed by US Border Patrol after being detained for 8 hours and deprived of necessary and life-sustaining resources.
