HEY. DUDES. WHITE, STRAIGHT, CIS GENDERED, ABLE BODIED, YOUNG AND ALL OTHER PEOPLE OOZING WITH PRIVILEGE.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY FOR SOME OF YOU FOLKS OUT IN CYBER LAND WHO LIKE TO SAY YOU’RE SOMEBODY’S ALLY.
TODAY I LEARNED, HYPOTHETICALLY, CONTEXTUALLY AND VISCERALLY WHAT AN ALLY IS IN AN EMOTIONALLY CHARGED, BEAUTIFUL WAY. I AM CHANGED FOR IT AND IT KICKED ASS.
I WILL NOW EXPLAIN TO YOU WHAT AN ALLY TRULY IS.
AN ALLY IS SOMEONE WHO WILL STAND WITH YOU, HEAR YOUR TRUTH, AND CRY BECAUSE OF YOUR PAIN.
AN ALLY IS A PERSON WHO WILL GIVE YOU THEIR LOVE, UNCONDITIONALLY, WHATEVER THAT LOOKS LIKE FOR THEIR COMFORT LEVEL.
AN ALLY IS SOMEONE WHO SUPPORTS YOUR FIGHT, UNCONDITIONALLY.
AN ALLY IS A BADASS MOTHERFUCKER WHO DOES WHAT’S RIGHT EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT EASY, CONVENIENT, POPULAR, ATTRACTIVE, FUN OR GOING TO GET THEM LAID.
AN ALLY IS SOMEONE WHO TRULY FINDS SELF INTEREST IN YOUR STRUGGLE, BECAUSE YOUR STRUGGLE IS OUR STRUGGLE IS MY STRUGGLE IS THEIR STRUGGLE.
IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE THAT SHIT, THAT’S COOL.
BUT DON’T SAY YOU’RE MY MOTHERFUCKING ALLY IF YOU’RE NOT DOWN WITH MY BLACK FEMALE BISEXUAL STRUGGLE, REALITY AND EXPERIENCES. DON’T FADE LIKE YOU’RE MY ALLY IF YOU’RE JUST TRYING TO BE COOL. DON’T FRONT LIKE YOU’RE A PART OF MY STRUGGLE AND MAKE RACIST/SEXIST/BI-SHAMING JOKES WHEN I AM NOT IN EARSHOT.
BECAUSE I CAN GET A 2 YEAR CD FROM AN ALLY WHO DOES NOT TRULY HAVE ANY INTEREST IN MY STRUGGLE… AND AT LEAST I WILL GET A 2.4% RETURN FROM THEM OVER THE COURSE OF 2 YEARS.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO BE ANGRIEST ABOUT.

(There’s a whole post about this douche on curtis’ blog)
“Uhura” comes from the Swahili word UHURU meaning “freedom”. Uhura was pretty much the first ever black main character on American television who was not a maid or a domestic servant in 1966. TV network NBC refused to let Nichelle Nichols be a regular, claiming Deep South affiliates would be angered, so Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry hired her as a “day worker,” but still included her in almost every episode. She actually made more money than any of the other actors through this workaround, and it was kept secret from the other actors, but it was still a humiliating second-class status. The network people made life hard for Nichols, constantly trying to pare down her screen time, purposefully dropping racist comments in her presence and even withholding her fan mail from her.This deplorable state of affairs led Nichols to make the decision to quit after the 1st season, but then she happened to meet the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. who pleaded with her to stick with the show because as a Black woman she was portraying the first non-stereotypical role on television. I had a crush on Uhura as a kid. LOL.
I MET NICHELLE NICHOLS ONCE! AT A JANELLE MONAE CONCERT! IT WAS THE EPITOME OF ALL THINGS AWESOME, FEMALE AND BLACK IN THE ENTERTAINMENT WORLD. IF ISSA RAE HAD BEEN THERE, I THINK THE WHOLE BUILDING WOULD HAVE EXPLODED.
ANYWAY? I WAS SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO NICHELLE NICHOLS! I SHARED ICE WITH HER!
UHURA HAD SOME OF MY ICE AND I TOLD HER HOW MUCH OF AN INSPIRATION SHE IS TO ME! SHE WAS VERY SWEET AND IS BEAUTIFUL.
OMG Y’ALL IT IS GPOYW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s like there is this AH-MAY-ZING party going on! Everyone kept inviting me, but I was like, eh whatever, I’m already at a pretty cool party. I knew the location, that the party was cool to a bunch of other cool people, but I was content with my party.
I mean, he has a verse on the Wondaland remix of Tightrope with my beloved Janelle Monae, but I still wasn’t ready to put my name on the RSVP list.
LASERS IS THE FUCKING SHIT. LUPE FIASCO IS FINE AS HELL AND HE IS AN AQUARIUS TOO. I MEAN REALLY, GUYS. I DON’T EVEN CARE THAT SOLAR MIDNITE’S VIDEO HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH TWILIGHT. IT IS THAT GOOD. HE IS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY. WHY DIDN’T ANYONE GRAB ME BY THE SHOULDERS AND SHAKE ME UNTIL I LISTENED? Not that I really wanted that, because that’s surely a hate crime or something.
I DID HOWEVER, LOVE PUSHING DASIES. SPECIAL EFFECTS. “OH HELL NO.” MUSICAL NUMBERS. PIE! IF PUSHING DASIES HAD PROPOSED TO ME, I’D BE A WIDOW RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE MARRIED IT.
THIS BRILLIANT, HILARIOUS, CLEVER, WELL WRITTEN, BEAUTIFUL, HEART-WARMING SHOW WAS CANCELLED.
AND THAT UNFUNNY SORRY EXCUSE FOR A SITCOM (LET THAT MARINATE) SCRUBS GOT 9 (NINE!!?!?!) SEASONS?
