"I need a real man not a child or a boy. Give me a hard rock, not a soft little toy. You think women are hard? You think we’re evil and mean? Well I think maybe you don’t need us."

"…Maybe you on the wrong team!"

"So I need a real man, and my standards are high, don’t like what you just heard, then you need not apply!"

She was rare, a perfect creation, a work of purest art. A delicate flower that bloomed in the liquid light of the moon. A nature not of this world, a personality like that of some biblical maiden, gracious and queenly. Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man  (via budddha)

I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk. Joquesse Eugenia (via felicefawn)

I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain. James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time (via heyfranhey)

My blackness isn’t determined by how I talk, how I carry myself. Not even the music I listen too. If that was the case a lot of white people would be black. Blackness is not an outfit we put on. I was born this way. This was a gift. a non refundable gift. Others wish they were given the privilege of waking up with rich history and culture running through their veins. I didn’t choose to be black but I’m damn sure being black chose me. markus pr1m3 (via mpr1m3)
