A big thank you to everyone who's helped me reach my current fundraiser for support. I couldn't have done this without y'all.
If I say that Black communities need to do more gatekeeping, there's going to be someone who's going to make it into a case of "self-segregation". And frankly, yeah. There's a lot of shit that people do not need to know about Black people (because it always gets turned into something that can be monetized). There are things that do need to be said, but Black liberal media avoids it a lot (because it needs to keep its sad alliance to patriarchal white supremacy — which is still blowing my mind to this very day) and well-off Black folks don't try to even publicly advocate for works that run counter to the things they claim to be against.
Hence Black capitalism.
