Geraldine-Brooklyn/Queens - Afro/Anthro/Art/LOVE

But remember, there are two ways to dehumanize someone: by dismissing them, and by idolizing them.

"here a camera becomes an instrument of a sharply knowing lyrical poetry that draws its energy from a late-twentieth-century urban scene; and here, as consequence, a poignant vitality and unassuming humanity are rescued from the flow of life’s events."

AAA

coming super soon, still half thought half creation in my head but coming really soon, well not “really soon” but soon enough! Before summer 2014 indeed. lol

where the art world stops being “exclusive”

where “afro" is more than a hair style

and where anthro means flowing off vibes.

wholy mom,

You’ve distanced me from the church more then you could ever admit. The bitter taste in my mouth with I hear jesus name is a flavor of you. You, woman with a back so strong you expected it to carry on. You expected my back to be able to carry burdens at an age where the things I was dealing with I could not pronounce. You, with a loud voice and a projected attitude. You, who fears god but knows nothing about herself. You taught me that turning the other cheek meant to deal, and dealing meant putting up with and putting up with meant that every time i was afraid or mad or in danger i had to put up with it, deal, have a strong back, not cry, just carry on. You, woman of god with no shame. You, woman who is quick to name a verse, you know the bible more than you know me, your own creation. Ironic no?

over the counter love

all this niggas is advil to the headache of love you’ve left me with since you left. all they do is cap off my nervous system, so I don’t actually feel how I feel. you, you’re every emotion that runs through me, because of you I learned to feel, but because of you i have trouble knowing whats real.
