of the things that make me bitter
and like, the sheer fucking ignorance required to think that miley cyrus of all fucking ppl could or has influenced beyonce is just….
you know. this, for me, is always one of the clearest example of the reality of living within institutionalized white supremacy
because all these fucking derivative, boring, and mediocre white ppl getting credit, fame, riches off of appropriating and stealing Black culture
all the same boring, derivative white ppl capitalizing and consumming any other culture/aesthetic just so that they can seem just that much more special
all the fucking mediocre white ppl running businesses, publishing books, controlling pretty much all means of production
and knowing just how hard any iaopoc has to work just to fucking get enough money to eat and pay rent
how, if any of us has a skill or are creative, we litterally need to be in the realm of fucking goddesses
just to be seen and probably still die in obscurity
(after some white person steals it and sanitizes it)
this is what makes feel bitter and resentful and fucking petty
no, it isn”t the worst that white ppl do or have done
but. something about this just….
