getting back into traditional art 🏃
it reminds me of when I used to do Inktober 🧓🏻

#MastoArt #CreativeToots

Thinking about Parasite (2019) again. I am often doing this

🕌 (translation) 

it's very weird growing up with imperial propaganda constantly repeating the idea that Islam is hateful towards all other religions, then actually reading the Quran, and it says:

God intentionally created a diversity of religious traditions. diversity is good. always remember to be kind & respect one another."

🕌 (translation) 

"... And had Allah willed, he would have made humankind one community, but [He willed otherwise], that He may try you in that which He has given you. So vie with one another in good deeds. Unto God shall be your return all together, and He will inform you of that wherein you differ."

— Qur'an 5:48

thinkin about...

... وَلَوۡ شَآءَ اللّٰهُ لَجَـعَلَـكُمۡ اُمَّةً وَّاحِدَةً وَّلٰـكِنۡ لِّيَبۡلُوَكُمۡ فِىۡ مَاۤ اٰتٰٮكُمۡ فَاسۡتَبِقُوا الۡخَـيۡـرٰتِ​ؕ اِلَى اللّٰهِ مَرۡجِعُكُمۡ جَمِيۡعًا فَيُنَبِّئُكُمۡ بِمَا كُنۡتُمۡ فِيۡهِ تَخۡتَلِفُوۡنَۙ‏ 

i hate money. hate budgeting. hate finance. this is not a worthwhile human activity. i can't believe capitalism wants me to waste my whole life doing this shit.

just once i wouldst like to live deliciously

is that so much to ask?

write it down, burn it up 🔥
if the past is a minefield, then how do we look up? :yell:

I think if one movie is really similar to another movie that doesnt make one good and one bad, that actually makes both more interesting

family, racism 

im thinking a lot about how my dad's dad's heritage was totally erased from that otherwise meticulous family history. instead of being a multiracial latino man with Black & Indigenous ancestry, instead of any of that history being seen as valuable or important, he just gets written off as "that brown guy" who tainted her useless cracker blood line.

it's uh. really really fucked.

family, racism 

thinking about the time I met my dad's mom, and she wanted to share 'The Family History.' she was flipping through this book that documented her entire ancestry for hundreds of years — and actively bragging about how the whole family were pure-blooded white Spanish settlers in Mexico & New Mexico.

then she made this really gross "joke" about how she'd been the one to "ruin all that" by having children with my dad's dad. imagine saying something like that to your own son jfc.

@jennie yeah, like. It doesn't make white people "lesser" or "anti-white" to be supportive of non-white people. It doesn't make someone special to treat us with baseline compassion lol

I remember having this conversation with some people here, about how uncomfy it is seeing white people describe themselves as race traitors. Let me give an example of where I wouldn't feel bad to use it. Don't be like my dad's wife. Never report anyone to ice. If you knew what it was like to be undocumented, and especially if you're also hispanic, why in the fuck would you ever threaten to report someone to ice. Migra is a force of violence. Don't fuck around with them
