Cempasuchil (Zempoalxóchitl in Nahuatl) or flor de muertos (flower of the dead) is an essential part of the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico. It is placed in our altares or ofrendas to guide the spirits of our deceased loved ones back home. It is a greeting, the kiss we will not be able to give them anymore…

Cornell West has degrees from Harvard, and Princeton. Taught at Harvard and the University of Paris, and was in the fucking Matrix… 
This never was about clothing, attitude, stature, or economic status, this is about black vs white. This is what the fuck racism is.

The Snoop Dogg/Iggy Azalea beef illuminates the intersectionality burdens that black feminists face when it comes to Hip Hop.

Either we’re forced to excuse Snoop’s misogynistic comments towards Iggy because we’re black, or we’re forced to defend Iggy because we’re women…when they’re both wrong.

And misogyny was never an issue in regards to any black female rappers, but when it’s a white female rapper, the world capes for her.

There’s levels to this.

"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen."
