monthly reminder to unfollow me if you think white people can experience racism
A huge gorgeous Victorian Lacrimosa (tear catcher) with stopper and all adornments intact. Used for over 3,000 years the mourning would gather their tears in these vials. I call this one the Unicorn Horn c.1800s.
No, this is how it works: You peer inside yourself, you take the things you like and try to love the things you took. And then you take that love you make, and stick it into some someone else’s heart, pumping someone else’s blood.
I’ll give you everything on this I swear, just promise you’ll always be there.
Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.
