Memoirs Of A Frisco

Howdy! I hang around the internets from time to time. I have recently become a professional natural hair stylist. Holla at me if you're in the DFW area and want your hair did. I'm an advocate for Deaf and Hard of Hearing rights. I encourage you to view the links here on my page discussing the deaf and hard of hearing culture. I am also a part of the natural hair community, but I am not my hair. Eating healthy and exercising is something I am still working to efficiently fully incorporate into my life...and that's me!

When situations turn horrible and I find it hard to move on, I usually draw my way through it. These drawing hardly ever see the light of day, since they’re really just a form of therapy for me. But these events unfolding now in my hometown and across the country , shining a light on the ugly racism that still runs rampant in our country, made me think that maybe this drawing could help in some small way. While it’s not a cheerful little picture you’d want to hang over the sofa, you might know of a school or an office or a police station that could use it.

All proceeds from the sale of this print will go to the Michael Brown Jr. Memorial Fund. It will be available in 2 days, only from my website, www.maryengelbreit.com/shop. As soon as it’s ready, I’ll put the official link on this page.

To say "colored" describes anyone not white. It's not offensive to say people of color. So essentially ever black person is a person of color, but not every person of color is black. "Colored" just describes the entire spectrum of non-white

I’ve really got this feeling that ‘colored’ and ‘person of color’ aren’t the same and aren’t accepted by all PoC’s all around as the same thing

The term “colored” has racist/derogatory/oppressive undertones and is more specifically directed towards black/African-American individuals while “person of color” is an indication of one who is not white and may refer to people of different ethnicities who are more pigmented.
