Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today.
Tried a new approach today. Hopefully these droplets dry as beautifully as they are looking now. #artofinstagram #conceptualart #stephyoungart #lineart #sneakpeak
My older sister and my brother in law are visiting me in CT for the first time since I have lived here.
I’ve been trying to be more positive about my strained relationship with her, and I am excited because it seems like we are both willing to put in the effort and sincerely try to get to know each other as adults. It feels nicer than holding on to resentment and pissed off emotions.
Also, we are going on a wine tour so I mean what could go wrong.
Tryna’ do a wine tour on Sunday so I can feel like a fancy lady
Today ended up being so beautiful!
Josh and I have no obligations in NJ for weeks now and I could not be happier! Not going anywhere any weekend if I don’t have to.
Felt so happy getting back to our neighborhood last night, even though we had only been gone for the day.
We have guests the next couple of weeks and I’m so excited for more people to see our beautiful apartment 😊
