i have never been so upset about a fav like this?

basically what she’s saying is, call her by her right nationality. why every time it’s poc in america, they’re recognized by their descent? it’s always african-american or asian-american when most of the people getting called that haven’t even been to their descendant country. why do we have to be called our race followed by “-american” while white people don’t? you don’t hear white people calling themselves poland-american or irish-american. and you wanna know why? because that’s another way white people try to separate themselves from us, try to be on a higher level than us. they always want to be on top and look down on us. so that’s why they identify us minorities in that way. so raven isn’t shaming herself in any type of way, she just doesn’t wanna be identified in their way.

T. Miller - “The Other Black Man” (Rustbelt 2014)

"T. Miller has a lot of experience with the struggle of being black, gay, a woman, and dominant in Detroit. She’s lost many friends whose only crime was existing outside the comfort zone of people who don’t bother to learn that other people exist in the world who are different from them. And the stories of people just like her often get buried by our complacent media." (Quoted from Upworthy).

Real poetry about real issues.
