So I was talking with this guy on KIK (aka SWB Heaven). This is only part of the conversation.
This is what marriage looks like
any cookie is bite sized if you try hard enough
ANY COOKIE IS BITE SIZED IF YOU TRY HARD ENOUGH
NOT ALL COOKIES
Today I saw the single most shocking thing I have seen in my entire life
The fact that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen are best friends in real life makes me so happy
My goal is to find a friendship like this with someone special.
They are just so beautiful.
“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”
People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in the country, went to all the best school and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life?
^ My parents were college-educated teachers in their home country and came to the U.S. with nothing but empty pockets, a dash of hope, and a belief in God. They also scrubbed toilets in people’s homes to make enough to provide for their children, and that’s probably not something a lot of educated professionals would be able to do. I know I wouldn’t be able to do it. Pride would get in the way.
THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT.
Shoutout to my parents
and you know, shout out to our im/migrant parents who were not college educated before they came to the U.S and don’t share a narrative of going from “riches to rags.” shout out to my im/migrant parents who were laborers at home and are still laborers here.
i think it’s important to honor the complexities of our parents histories and uplift their triumphs but let’s remember to do so in a way that honors all of the ways im/migrants exist and all of the places we and our parents come from. we don’t have to prove that capitalism, white supremacy, classism, etc is awful because our parents were once revered college professors or doctors. we don’t have to believe in that assimilation.
My brother in law came to this country alone at the age 15. He support himself and his family back home in Mexico. He now has a wife a two beautiful, smart, well mannered little girls. Back in 2006 he began the process of applying for US citizenship. Just a few days ago (no more than 2 days ago- as in July 2014) he just got his request back and he was DENIED. Why? because there was not “sufficient evidence that him being deported would have a negative or devastating impact on his family.”
He waited 8 years to hear that him being deported essentially would not matter. When people harp and whine about undocumented citizens, or even how immigrants are taking over America it just proves to me how uneducated and clueless they are.
It takes for much courage to come to a new country. To start you life from nothing .
So you better honor the fuck out of all im/migrants.
This is the first shoot of the photo series. I’m still in the process of deciding on other fruit options and trying to figure out how to open that coconut.
