weirdlook asked: Hey,just out of interest. When I see these body appreciation things, it weirds me out that they're still sort of exclusionary. Be it to body type, skin type etc. Ofcourse I don't expect them to list literally all forms of body but still.. When I see a compilation of skinny, thin nosed, thin lipped people it feels like: here's the bit of blackness we need to appreciate. What do you think?
If you are talking about the recent reblog this week of a photoset, it was about the Black Body as an idea, not about body types. The post was one of many on the Black Body, that particular one was about hair and had women of different hair styles. There’s another from ourblackproject that focuses on body types and includes various body types. I can’t speak on all photosets but those are not exclusionary.

That’s me on this episode! I’m so shy 🙈
Didn’t watch the whole thing, just the part w/ Z… I really liked that he said getting involved was important, but that even “something small” can go a long way. People don’t get involved b/c they have lives, too, and think they can’t dedicate their lives to their community…But you don’t have to do that! Small, weekly, monthly, or single actions can change lives.
Yes. Some other footage was cut where we talked about impact participation can make. Such as speaking or retweeting on social media. That’s how most learned of trayvon or marissa. No act is too small!!

soulrevision: No matter how long or how full of a life he lived, there will ALWAYS be great sadness losing someone of this magnitude. He was more than just a man; Mandela was an amazing servant leader, a freedom fighter & truly a King among men. There’s something great about a man that can serve 27 years in prison, gain his freedom & forgive his oppressors. Thank you Nelson Mandela for fighting to dismantle the legacy of apartheid, poverty, inequality & institutionalized racism. Thank you for showing us how to fight for our people. May the spirit of Mandela live on through us by learning to love those who hate us, forgive those who do evil to us & forever lift one another up & fight for freedom from oppressive institutions. LONG LIVE MADIBA!
