Six months from today I will be marrying my best friend, my soul mate, my ace. Words can't even begin to do justice to my feelings for you. The love and bond we share is unshakable unbreakable and invaluable! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for our future successes as people but mostly as one. I'm getting married y'all #becominganarmstrong#biracialcouples#allloveisbeautiful#meanttobe#truelove#fiance
So let me tell you about this man right here @1984lovejones .... he's gone for the weekend and knows I've been having some self doubt and struggles with how I want to present my music, my message. It's like he knows I just needed a little spark in me to get on my grind. I always receive a beautiful surprise from him when I truly need it the most, but always when I least expect it! Thank you so much mushy man I love you and can't wait to call you my husband in just 2 months and some change😘💕👌🏽💋 #powercouple#stronglove#biracialcouples#myheart#artist#music#dance#bringrealhiphopback#iloveyou#destiny#texas#nj#nyc#fl
I was very ignorant in understanding the visceral hatred and nonsensical generalizations and stereotypes, stigma, and cultural taboos directed towards people classified as biracial. It wasn't until meeting and marrying my wife, that I began to experience the sneers, the sharp glances, and the snide comments. The skin worship, the skin degradation. The assumption of both sub and superhuman abilities The assumptions of Class or Character, of poverty or wealth. The searching for confirmation of the false ideas and fetishes perpetuated in an insidiously nuanced subculture as old as the European expansion into the "New World". And this all without leaving our respective communities.
I made the decision that it ended with me. I decided to celebrate the beauty of my Wife. Not to denigrate the beauty of anyone else, but to love, express my Love for my Beautiful Biracial Wife, and not seek validation from any Culture, or anyone in any Culture. I was taught, and whole-heartedly believe, that to be my duty as a Husband, as a Father, and as a Man. Biracial is not Beautiful because it enhances or diminishes anything African. Biracial is not Beautiful because it enhances or diminishes anything European or "White". Biracial is Beautiful Biracial is Human, and Humanity is Beautiful!
I am thankful for my Wife. I am thankful for what Time and Life have taught me of my Wife's Character. The Equality of her Beauty. Hers a Beautiful both outside and In!
I noticed it as soon as we landed... The salty air dried out my hair. At first putting in my leave-in helped but as soon as I hit the water it turned orange! Any tips for caring for hair in salty environments? #islandlife 🌴
