…Become dust with me— insignificant and everywhere. For I will love you, even after your marrow become nothing…but a whisper. And your bones nothing but the snickering of gravel. Let us soak in the spaces our shadows left behind…

Alysia!

black excellence

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

Just a reminder that you’re whole without someone else. You are not a fraction. You’re a complete master piece all by yourself and you do not need anyone else to validate your existence.

Anonymous said: I'm going to the show in Seattle, what should I look forward to/how early should I get there, etc. ?? Thank you!

thequeenbey:

1) Don’t be late! People have been denied access to the venue for being late aka lost out on all their ticket money. Aim to get there an hour early and think about traffic.

2) Another reason to get there really early is if you want to buy merchandise. Those lines can get super long, especially after the show. Buy all the merch you want before the show.

3) Speaking of, take out cash before you get there. Although credit cards work for the merchandise, I made the mistake of trying to buy drinks and food with my card (after waiting like twenty min in line) and it was cash-only. So have a good amount of cash on you just in case it’s like that for your venue.

4) If you want to meet the dancers after the show, I’ve been told that you need to get to the back of the stadium as soon as possible. Like immediately after the show ends. Most of them (except the Les Twins apparently), especially Ashley and Kimmie, are really sweet and will take pics with you.

5) Have fun!! I think people focus too much on trying to get a lot of pictures and videos but I turned my phone off and tucked it away and had the greatest time of my life. Trust me, you won’t need a million pictures to remember that night forever.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

"I think every woman should have short hair at least once in their life. You learn about a whole new side of you that you had no idea existed. When I cut my hair I had this whole new idea of confidence. I was the most beautiful I’ve ever felt. Growing up I was shown that long straight hair was what made a woman sexy, or beautiful. I was teased often for having nappy hair and I always used to straighten it. So when I saw who I was without the locks I proved that idea wrong. I don’t need straight or long hair to be anything. And now that my hair is growing again, I see myself differently, I see my hair differently. I treat it differently and I know that my hair isn’t at all what makes me beautiful, I am what makes it beautiful."
