Anonymous asked: r u an idiot or something? like srsly, did you understand the context of that poem, or did your white guilt reactor make it hard for u to comprehend what the poem meant? i mean to say the context is up for the reader to decide? when the reader deliberately left out a whole line of the poem? ha, that's a crap statement indeed. weak argument and really just a waste of time. so much for the white liberal
Hey Anonymous! Firstly, really brave of you to push that “anon” button to ask a question. Your courage is impressive.
Second, please don’t come at someone asking if they’re an “idiot” if you cannot actually take the time to SPELL OUT THE WORDS YOU ARE WRITING. I mean come the fuck on right now. The irony is almost painful.
Third, I can’t help but LOVE IT that you’re chalking up my “crap statement” to white guilt or being a white liberal. If you took 2 fucking seconds you human piece of garbage you’d see pictures of me on this blog (and my avi) that indicate I am CLEARLY not white. So that argument of yours is shit.
Fourth, yes, the person with the tattoo DID leave out part of the poem. AND YOUR POINT IS? That happens a lot when people get tattoos of quotes. That particular line resonated with that person, hence them only getting those words tattooed on them. As far as understanding the context of the poem, my understanding is not the issue here. The tattoo persons understanding is. And unless Ms. Wahid explicitly stated in her book that the poem is about colonialism or tourism without depth, you cant expect anyone to know that. People put their OWN interpretations on poems. music, ya know, ART.
So, in closing, YOU, you anonymous piece of shit, are the one who wasted their time. Also, learn how to spell words you degenerate.
as of right now, there is LITERALLY nothing that makes me happier than watching dance lines from Soul Train episodes on youtube. it’s so amazing and nostalgic and FUN.
if you didn’t grow up with soul train, i feel for you.
