As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting

Despite the constitution? That shit wasn’t made for us. We live in a system that was designed to marginalize us. Designed to make sure we would never feel comfortable. Designed to make sure that every time we speak up, we’re silenced. You’re right, no matter what we accomplish, no matter how amazing or great, we’re still not human to them.

I love to be surrounded by people who know what they want to do and are doing everything to get there. Nobody’s going to push you. You have do everything yourself because it’s all you. These kind of people brighten up my soul.

Here’s a quick #protip: finding some art that you like on instagram, tumblr, facebook or Google and erasing the background so you can place text all over it for t-shirts, email blasts, promo materials, or flyers does NOT make you a graphic artist. That just makes you someone who lacks creativity and needs someone else’s to boost your own endeavors. And it’s always these same people who crop or erase out your signature/watermark and replace it with their own. My art took hours to create, your wording…? 15 minutes tops, if that. #respect #dontsteal #ask #illustration #HireARealGraphicArtist #illumistrations #illustration
