I think I’ve become a stereotype…

Okay, let me explain. You know how on tv shows and in cartoons if the show when they show art students they are either really weird or political? Recent events have made me realize that I am becoming a political art student.

Now, I don’t think that this is a bad thing. In fact, I’m actually happy about this development. I’ve said this before, but in the past I use to keep my opinions on politics and social issues to myself. But as more things have come to light in the world and as I have been personally affected. In case you don’t already know, I am Black and I am female. There are a lot of people and things in my life that I have to fight against in order to get to where I want to be. So I’m okay with being a stereotype, it’s better than staying silent.
