fooler initiative @metroadlib i reside in va, ride in va, most likely when I die, I'm gon' die in va. May. 03, 2019 1 min read

i don't like confrontation, but i don't live in fear of it.
i accept it as a necessary reality of any type of healthy adult engagement.
i don't overly worry abt offending ppl, b/c my goal is to not be *offensive*. i don't order my steps to tread lightly b/c i trust my direction.

and i think ALL of this is a direct byproduct of my black woman experience on this earth.

i was raised to be strong.
but neither of my parents thought the world left room for anything else.

what's FASCINATING to me, is how often white women-
even "socially-conscious," "aware," "equity-affirming" white women....
read my cues as aggressive.
