The name's Crystal. I'm a female-identifying pansexual with a whole lot of love to give. My love affair with red velvet cake is the stuff of legends. Life goals? To live in a house designed for cats and run a sweet-ass tearoom.

Calling people liars because their lived experience makes you uncomfortable is a sign of your privilege. It is not divisive for a marginalized person to talk about their lived experience and encouraging them to sweep it under the carpet denies the isms that they are forced to negotiate.
If that’s not powerful, I don’t know what is!! Gave me chills at the truth of it—really!
“And speaking of slavery, black people in this country would not be Christians if it weren’t for slavery.”
So true! It’s crazy when you think of it like that! I adore this fellow.

Brilliant. Well fucking said. I was so close to hopping off my bed so I could stand and clap.
You’d think that minorities would work together and try to lift one another up, but there’s so much divisiveness caused by religion. Christianity was imposed on POC throughout history. That’s what all those “missions” were about: barging into so-called “savage” lands and forcing the people who inhabited them to abandon the belief system of their culture (because it was dirty, evil, uncivilized, and wrong *rolls eyes*) and, instead, adopt Christianity - the superior and right religion. Religion, I understand, is a comfort for many people. It can also inspire people to do and create beautiful, wonderful things. But overall, as history continues to show, religion divides; it has also inspired people to persecute and murder others because of difference.
While I do consider myself spiritual, I am most definitely not religious.
