I was looking at pictures of kittens earlier and decided I wanted to draw up a cutie patootie kitten before bed! I forgot whiskers but oh well haha
seriously wtf is this. My natural state of being lies somewhere around “moved to tears by phone commercials and photos of cats snuggling” and this moves me straight into “crying because there is water damage on the ceiling in a house I don’t own why am I crying”.
We wish our warrior ancestor Nina Simone a Happy Birthday today on February 21st!
Nina Simone was a voice for Black liberation during the Civil Rights Movement. She carried the legacy of her ancestors forward through her music and is known today as a revolutionary sister in the struggle for freedom.
To demonstrate her fearlessness, Simone once said this before performing her song “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black.”
This is not addressed primarily to white people. It does not put you down in anyway. It simply ignores you, for my people need all the inspiration and love that they can get.
