my work ethic is basically “if it doesn’t have to be done right this second then I’m not gonna do it”

Doctor Lance Sweets and the Mystery of “Why Am I Friends With A Bunch of Cissexist Buffoons” (4x07 and 4x23)
Almost daily I come across posts of people’s “work” where they’re inviting me to give them money for a neat print or tee or some such that they pretty much had little to no hand in creating.
And I’m reminded of the white woman during the web ownership session run by blackamazon, dj ripley, and so treu during the Allied Media Conference this past summer who went on a mini rant about folks stealing her work.
Her work that consisted of a photo of Audre Lorde (that she didn’t take) and a quotation of Audre Lorde (that she obviously didn’t write) all laid out on a greeting card and other shit that she obviously didn’t/wasn’t printing by hand.
And I’m just sitting here like how is this yours? What did you create from your own experience here?
Why should I be giving *you* money for this?
Why do you think you have the right to claim ownership on work created from someone else’s struggle?
Howl… Cut it out. Cut it out. I’m gonna drown. I’m drowning here, Howl!
it’s been 1 year since the most influential event of all time

The brunette part is really important.
cultural appropriation 101
Seriously guys, wearing a war bonnet without having to suffer blood, sweat and tears for it is so disrespectful to all the servicemen who have sacrificed their lives for this country.
Finally someone stands up for my people and puts it into words that i couldn’t. Thank you!!!
I love the smell of cultural sensitivity education in the morning.
