This is really raw and off the dome. I’m going to act like the new kid at the open mic night and ask y’all to bear with me.
I couldn’t wade into that Afrofuturism discussion started by Nnedi Okorafor yesterday because my day was just full of all sorts of meatspace responsibilities that I couldn’t ignore. Also, part of my silence was just being fucking livid at the expressed ideas, and any of my reactions coming from that mindstate would be unfair to the discourse, especially when I’m talking to other Black people. There are certain folks you give respect, even if they are acting with disregard for your feelings. There’s a time to act from anger, and there’s a time to consider your reaction and then try and come correct. If that makes me wrong in this instance, so be it.
I got time today, though.
Any talk on…
