Dr. Monica A. Coleman
Quote is from Tips for Navigating Through the Mental Healthcare System: An Interview with Rev. Dr. Monica A. Coleman. It’s heartbreaking for me because I deal with mental health issues and I’m acutely aware of both the intraracial and interracial stigma. And when you get to the root of the stigma? Myths about our “strength” that are used to harm us while affirming White supremacy are the same myths that we’ve internalized and thereby at times are not supported/supportive in seeking care.
And sometimes professional mental health care is not ideal or nor accessible. So we seek support among each other. But when fellow Black people bring up “slavery was worse!” or yell out "pray about it!" as a silencing tactic because either belief in the infallible Black woman who can endure endless abuse (as created by White supremacy) or discomfort with addressing mental health head on, they ignore the fact that the impact of slavery is still felt today and mental health issues still exist today. There is no line in time where Black people were magically healed and slavery can be forgotten nor existing oppression today be silenced.
This Is the Most Detailed Image of the Universe Ever Captured
NASA has just published the most detailed view of the Universe ever taken. It’s called the Extreme Deep Field—or XDF for short. It took ten years of Hubble Space Telescope photographs to make it and it shows some the oldest galaxies ever observed by humans, going 13.2 billion years back in time.
It’s a mindblowing, extremely humbling view. Not only for what it shows, but for what it doesn’t show. While this image contains about 5,500 galaxies, it only displays a tiny part of the sky, a ridiculously small slice of the Universe.

don’t mistreat people who are sincerely kind
don’t use them for their generosity
and for fuck’s sake don’t take them for granted expecting them to always be there because they’re nice
good-natured people can be worn down so much that even they can become jaded
treat these people right
