i haven’t done much these past few days. my mind has been taken up by the injustice and the protest in america & i have been trying to further educate myself on the matter in my free time. this thread represents freedom & creativity to me & due to the ongoing issues ...
black people are facing in the states, i don’t feel right to keep updating this for now. the #BlackLivesMatter movement has highlighted the boundaries & the constraints black people have in their everyday lives & i feel selfish to parade my freedom & creativity while others ...
suffer and are killed for simply living their lives. i will not be updating this thread for a while as i feel my time online can be used in different ways to help others around me.
