I'm Pam Newman.
I am awesome every day & you are too.
Follow my butt on Twitter!
I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
And that response, the response of “Don’t bring race into it.” Why does that even matter?
If you’re a white dude, how does it even matter if I’m talking about race? It obviously doesn’t concern you. Are you the dude who wrote it? Do you feel guilty??? Are you gonna cry about it? Do you need to be coddled because of how strongly I affirm that it is directly connected that a child of color was called a slur? Oh, boo fucking hoo. Cry away.
I cry. I cry all the time. I cry about the history of black women in america. I cry about the present of america. I cry about my own goddamn blod. I cry about the fact that MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER WAS RAPED BY THE FATHER OF HER CHILDREN. A white man. Raped her. And now my family is here.
And that we just have to fucking endure. I cry. About real shit.
Are you feeling like I am encroaching on your whiteness because I am defending a 3rd party black CHILD?
Get the hell off of my planet and may your tears freeze in the absence of space.
