Somewhere along the line the world sort of decided that anything black was automatically worse. Black skin, ugly. Black hair, rubbish, black bodies, dirty. Even the things we did, black culture, primitive, black music, talentless, black clothing, thuggish, black lives worthless.

"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."
