I’ve been waiting for someone to make this a gif
damn near 30 years ago and still relevant
Can someone show me a similarly frank conversation about rape culture in any of your progressive faves….
I think it’s super interesting this convo is happening between two men of colour BECAUSE they’re so much more likely to be accused of or picked up during or seen as rapists because of the historical necessities of white supremacy.
Like would a conversation like this happen between two white men of the same era, or now, did it, has it would it?
2 black men*
stop romanticizing unhealthy relationships.
stop thinking you can change someone. you can’t. they need to change for themselves.
stop romanticizing the idea of you two being together some day. if it isn’t happening now, let it go.
no more pouring your heart out for someone who gives you little to no reciprocation.
find someone who values your long letters and passionate attempts. this person will reciprocate, with twice as much fire.
The little wave of rage that washed over my body when i heard him disrespect her like that though…. I can’t even finish typing this cuz i’m at work and I need to calm down.
