There is a specific voice all African children reserve for explaining things to their parents. You have to sound like you know what you’re talking about without being too authoritative so you’re not accused being “too-known”. Also your voice must be at the perfect pitch of not whispering but not yelling either because those hands move faster than the speed of sound, and all the relatives in your hemisphere will hear about you yelling at said parent in 3.5 seconds. Trust.

There is nothing cool about being an introvert or depressed or self-harming or hating people or having social anxiety or having abusive parents or locking yourself in your room or not having any friends or not eating or over-exercising or taking drugs or hating yourself

There is nothing cool about romanticizing any of these things. They should be fixed not romanticized.

Um introverts are in no way a problem to fix.

Your social security number is great and all but the real question is will you name me as the beneficiary on your life insurance policy? Let me 419 you so I know it’s real.

She said “let me 419 you so I know it’s real”. I don die!!!

It’s so nice outside and I’m in here stressing because my mum just asked to see my grades and the last two semesters have been rough. Help. S2g this woman had a sixth sense, didn’t have these questions when I was making them A’s though… hmm

Mixed-race baby business Flourishing in Ghana – Report

This is ridiculous and disgusting.

————— Slur tw (Can’t properly update tags on my phone) I believe we’ve discussed this before or something similar. Id caution about reading it. They refer to us as “a breed” and repeatedly use “half-caste” —Jay

I want to say, in no way to excuse its use, that Ghanaians (can’t speak for any other Africans) do not use half caste in a way that is meant to be derogatory. It is so accepted a term that there is even slang (half-co) for it. Multiracial people raised in Ghana often refer to themselves with that word. I understand and have been told by a multiracial friend that she does not appreciate the term so I do not use it. I just feel that it is important to understand cultural differences and be gentler in correcting those from other countries who use terms that are loaded in America due to this country’s unique and sordid history.
