The girl Mide

An atypical girl trying to find her own definition of beauty and happiness within a society that belittles everything she is.

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

this is so fucked up? that is literally a dead body

Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to.

I dropped my crown.

Somewhere between here and there, I started allowing what others thought about me to devour me.

I’ve started question my worth, my intelligence, my beauty.

I dropped my crown and my balance has been off ever since…

Tonight they go to my family that lives in Nigeria

And my mutuals’ families as well

Just Nigeria as a whole

As well as other countries dealing with the Ebola outbreak

That they all still be in good health and that God be with them

Whenever America gets its shit together

That they get the medicine they need to save lives from such a detrimental virus

Amen

Amen.

Amen!!
