You’d think a friendship would reign supreme
you’d think sharing all your hopes, fears and dreams
that she, your sister in arms;
your sister in blood or your sister in indigeneity
would not take aim to thee
and yet here you stand
words in my hand
that say nothing but judgment, a lack of understanding
towards projecting your story on me.
Why don’t you walk in my shoes
The only acne treatment for me

They’re not just “boat people”. They’re people seeking asylum. People seeking help.
Hi guys, My name is Ebs and it’s not going to surprise you that I love love.
Late last year after visiting New York Comic Con, I had decided that San Diego Comic Con (aka geek mecca) was going on my bucket list.
Maybelline tells me my skin colour is medium beige.
My ancestry is black.
My father is white.
I didn’t ask to be trapped in this middle ground.
I can’t deny who I am.
I am black.
My spirit is black.
My spirit is the spirits of 60,000 years of ancestors.
Your thoughts of me should be irrelevant
But your words still hurt.
How can you say love,
That you love me
When you can’t understand me?
Gotta love trolls right. Turns out my “spamming” of their hashtag with my last post created a certain amount of ire that after I spent some time arguing with uneducated fools on the topic of feminism, one gent who foolishly left his work email on the comments (of which I’ve hidden) felt the need to further espouse his thoughts on my post.
This is yet another example of why it breaks my heart that I didn’t make it to San Diego Comic Con (aka geek mecca) 2014.
