Today's #ActivistADay features writer and activist @tooflyyyaquemini -
For so long, black bodies have been used for movement fodder. We fill in the gaps, and build the force, but if anything, we get the scraps. I am fortunate enough that I was born in a time when my activism allows me to be loud and visible for myself, not for others first, and not for the scraps. The village that raised me didn't have such an opportunity, but, today, I do. My activism will teach my children how they come first, and yet, they are a part of a village that also must come first. My life and essence is my activism, the fact that I exist and will continue to take up space, and 'be', matter in more than just physics, but that is my activism. I will yell, scream, act, and live fiercely to make sure that the rights due to me are received. My activism allows me to be black and and to put my needs first.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY! I'm so blessed to have you as my dad. The ultimate husband, provider and protector! I am definitely a #daddysgirl . I love you always and forever! Thanks for being a stand up man! #january21

It’s more than just practicing religion, God wants to have a relationship with you. This is the foundation for the culture of Relate - every Sunday will be a reminder who God is and who He can be to you and your family.
It’s the beginning of your walk with Him... #easytoRelate#january21#40days
Daily Tax Tip: Last year refunds were NOT released until late February for people claiming dependents. The rule is the same this year. Why not file with RIGHT WAY & receive some of your money the same day? #January21#financialservices

I contemplated on a new bag, a mink,a new car, possibly some new jewels....I said f*** that and kept my focus on. •
3 years later, this fit cost me almost a quarter mill 🤷🏽♀️🖤 master plan to make 5 times that, and I will! •

This is for the people mocking the women coming forward about sexual harassment in the workplace. Who cares if it was 15 years ago! Guess what?! A woman stood up for herself and now many more are backing her up by sharing their stories. This isn’t a pity party people, it’s a reckoning. It’s a time where women stand behind each other rather than feeding each other to the wolves or saying better her than me. You can slander it all you want but all I see is that you fear what will happen when women support each other. It’s been a long time coming ladies. If you’re not part of the support system, you’re part of the problem. We’re all human beings, let’s act like it.
