“Let’s just make our own, then.”
I am very grateful to be living in a time where my existence is being talked about in media, even if it’s not considered mainstream media. I hope more queer black people are able to get their narratives and truths into video games, movies, and books into mainstream media. Even though this timeline is full of uncertainty for my queer siblings because of the rampant queerphobia from other Black people and racism and anti-blackness from non-Black people, I hope the mediums that we consume for entertainment are full our voices and our truths.Read more "(Fighting) Games Are What Made Me Queer"

My only gripe with white people and whitewashing is that I wish white people would just admit that they are racist when it comes to black people and PoC in media.

It’s weird how “oh he was just a cop” “oh he’s just military” is what comes up when talking about black people and their professions, but when white people bring up their own family members who were in those positions, there’s bumper stickers, t-shirts, family get togethers based on that profession, even if they only went to boot camp/the academy. A black person could have several medals, badges, ranks, and white people would still just scoff and complain about them “bragging”.Read more "Boring, Bitchy and Black"

At what point do organics stop fearing AI? Probably never, let’s be honest here. Humans can’t even get along with each other about made up social constructs, so trying to giving a sentient being that is made up of computer codes and programming is just too much.Read more "The Future Lies in AI Lives"
