”I am not tragically colored. There is no great sorrow dammed up in my soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. I do not mind at all. I do not belong to that sobbing school of Negrohood who hold that nature somehow has given them a lowdown dirty deal. Even in the helter-skelter skirmish that is my life, I have seen that the world is to the strong regardless of a little pigmentation more or less. No, I do not weep at the world — I am too busy sharpening my oyster knife.” Zora Neale Hurston
This queen right here?!?!
this woman is everything.
PLEASE try to tell me this Madame Hurston is not one of my most amazing authors and spirits to ever walk this earth!!
Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.The beautiful, spirited Zora Neale Hurston (January 7, 1891)
“Some might even say underachiever/cuz they are not believers/that I don’t want the world/but I done seen the world/and if you ever saw it/hell, you wouldn’t want it either” -Phontigallo (Dance in the Reign)
