“I always feel bad, man. I promise you there is no white writer out there, who when you read a book by a white person, and you hear other white people being like, ‘Yo this white book makes me look bad.’ I’ve never met a white writer who ever gets asked questions like, ‘Well, don’t you feel bad about the way you represent white people?’ Guys, I’m not representing Dominicans, I’m representing one crazy set of like, what, 11 people? There’s like, what, 12 people in this book? There’s 10 million Dominicans, yo. I just happen to come from a family of crazy people and I think you should be allowed to write about crazy people.”—
Junot Diaz, at New York City College of Technology in Downtown Brooklyn.
If it actually started raining men I think I’d just start crying and be really terrified and not leave my house and just curl up into a ball and pretend I couldn’t hear the slamming of bodies falling upon my roof under no circumstances would I think “hallelujah”
RE: professional - erm? yeah i guess so!? I don't have a "day job" anymore so all I do is make videos, write and go on auditions/speaking engagements. so yes, i'm a full time...vlogger/actress/writer. kinda crazy. and yes, there are a lot of YouTubers who think they're such big shots that they can't even thank the people that got them where they are. believe me, they've snubbed me too, which is why I refuse to act like them. thanks for the support. it means a lot
