Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?
*sigh
If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com
Again, I feel this begs to be said again: Black. Lives. Matter.

Janelle Monae tweeted some of her lyrics earlier today and they were relevant as FUCK (8/14/14)

I’ve been evangelizing for Janelle and Killer Mike for years. They’ve been two of the loudest voices when it comes to musicians speaking up in the last few days. 

I was right there retweeting that shit!! My hero!!

This is important. Could very well help those struggling to read these books. Don’t leave anyone in the dark.

Look at you pair. It’s always you and her isn’t it? Long after the rest of us have gone. A boy and his box off to see the universe.

Well you say that as if it’s a bad thing. But honestly it’s the best thing there is.
