In simple terms: If you can’t handle a bad bitch, don’t date one.
THAT'S what's up. Dude's saying: "You can stop being YOU, now, since you've got ME...."
THAT'S what's up. Dude's saying: "You can stop being YOU, now, since you've got ME...." That's the rationale of a narcissist. Not in the casual-use of the term, but the literal, clinical one. One would have to have the actual, literal lack of/unstable sense of self that's at the heart of narcissism, so that ANYONE who could possibly "outshine me" or "find better than me" has to be brought low or obliterated. I used to think Jonah Hill MIGHT be an okay person but that revealed mindset is ALL KINDS of red flags. That's the whole damned tarmac ablaze. I hope Sarah Brady has left him behind.

This warms my heart and sets it on FIRE.
This warms my heart and sets it on FIRE. Even as I shed tears for those dimmed stars who should still be walking the road beside us. Most important for me, though, is that fire. If they can walk this world being no one and nothing less than who they are, then neither can I. Especially since they gave their lives to make my part of this road a bit easier. I can do no less than try to keep paving the road and make sure it STAYS PAVED for those walking with me and after me.

For the majority culture, for "white" culture, looking Black in some way, through contrived means, is fun and cool. BEING BLACK, naturally and overwhelmingly, down to the life-experience ALL Black people share in some measure (not a monolith of experience but a multitude created by centuries of white supremacy) …
