#kujichagulia #SelfDetermination “To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves instead of being defined, named, created for, and spoken for by others.” I am completely fed up with other people trying to force their beliefs, opinions, judgements on others. We need to speak for ourselves. I don’t have fancy camera equipment but I have an HD digital cam and some editing software. I wanna create a space where people from all walks of life can define themselves. If anybody is interested hmu on FACEBOOK or ask for my number and I gotchu. Nobody has to but everyone is welcome.

Doctors are paid to diagnose people. That’s apart of the job. And some doctors even make money off every single pill they write a script for. It’s become apart of their job. Every problem doesn’t have a solution you take orally once or twice a day. And that’s ohkay. Some problems just need to be heard not doped up. Don’t become apart of that culture they want to force us all into full of medicated zombies. Not every doctor is right and not every doctor is in it to help the masses. Some of them, like most people these days, just want more money. #DontBelieveTheHype

"

one day
your bones will get weary
of men
who refuse to
worship the God in you


on that day,
you will either slit your soul
or gather your spirit
leaving any man
who has never called you
Holy.

"I do not need a foreigner to appreciate my culture for me to know how rich it truly is. I do not need any validation and most certainly not an European “OMG!! this is so cool” validation. I know the richness of my culture through and through."
