I want to start framing my postcards before they get ruined.

GPOY - totally my mom - except my mom doesn’t drink. She’s just insane.
Too many people to scroll through. I am so bad at the internet these days.
This will be my wedding song whenever I get married.
Liberace for Wisconsin. Cee Lo for the realness!
Woah. Just saw a bright crazy weird light flash from my window. No noise to accompany it. #eastoakland
Anonymous said: i need advice... my co-worker is a 38-year old college educated white male, but for some reason within the last few months has become a self-proclaimed "hood rat" and now talks in a very inauthentic fake hood way and won't stop calling me "homegirl" and asking me about "da bidness" and says things like "i ain't seen you in a minute." he grew up in chicago on the south side, but went to nice catholic schools and had all the finer things in life. how do I tell him to stop?
It sounds like he watched the Boondocks and mistook the scathing critique of white cultural appropriation represented by the characters Charlie Murphy and Samual L Jackson play, as an appropriate way to be in the world.
This is just my opinion and I am by no means an authority on this nor should my opinion be taken very seriously and there are a lot of very nuanced things i could say but…. Just be real and tell him he sounds like a racist dumbass… adopting a manner of speech in your late 30’s that is associated with a group that is marginalized (partially due to that manner of speech in question), and using terms like “hood rat” which is a term members of that community generally go out of their way to avoid being associated with due to the racist stereotypes surrounding that word; is cultural appropriation. It’s disingenuous. He sounds like a frat boy.
