“The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” -Malcolm X

I have a deep fear of being too much. That one day
I will find my someone, and they will realize that I am
a hurricane. That they will step back and be intimidated
by my muchness.

killbenedictcumberbatch:

Can I cry for Michael Brown AND Robin Williams though? Can I be upset by more than one thing at once? Am I allowed to be sad about two very abrupt and unjust deaths that happened very closely to each other? Can I weep for a young black man who was taken from this world unfairly while STILL being sad that a childhood icon of mine has passed away as well? Can we NOT do this?
