Putting this here for reference because I’ve been seeing a lot of people arguing about useless know-nothing bullshit lately, and falling headfirst into this trap.

Listen. The haters are here to keep us hating back, to keep us from doing our work. They are a distraction. You are punching at clouds. You are punching at bullshit that you could hit a whole lot better with your work.

Do the work.

Ignore the distractions.

They are trying to keep you from doing your work. 

Toni Morrison says it with far more eloquence than I ever will. Listen. And remember:

Truthbomb_825“The function, the very serious function, of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language, so you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly, so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up. None of that is necessary. There will always be one more thing.”

 

This is applicable to every -ism out there.

Keep working. Keep creating. You’re still here. You’re winning.

Do the work.

Fuck the rest.
