When you find your QUEEN, you will immediately notice that she’s different. She will walk a certain way and speak eloquently. She will make your mother smile and make your exes angry. She will behave like a lady in public but in private.. she will make sure that not a single part of your body goes untouched. Her hands will feel like what you imagined magic to be as a child. She won’t go to social networks to expose you when times are rough. She will sit you down, and speak to you.. Not talk at you. She will pray for you when you’re wounded and correct you delicately when you’re wrong. She will teach you mystery is not dead. She will captivate you so deeply that you will want to be good to her. She will not have to remind you that she’s a diamond. You will know that from the time you meet her.
She will cook for you..and sometimes with you. Every recipe won’t be perfect but you will still think she is.
You will forget what morning breath is when you open your eyes to kiss her. You will roll over in your sleep just to catch a glimpse of what it looks like when she dreams about you. You will fall in love with her freckles and scars and remember how gorgeous flaws are when she’s wearing them. You might find yourself staring at her often. Randomly. She will change you without your permission.
Just remember to remind her that her crown can never fall if you see it getting heavy.
Most importantly, show her that all this time you’ve been waiting to be a King for a woman like her. 👑

Aiyana Stanley-Jones. Never forget her or the State violence that took this beautiful 7-year-old Black girl away from her family. Never forget that the struggle for accountability for the killer (Joseph Weekley; who now may only face a misdemeanor; no manslaughter charge) and the State reveals the violence of the system itself.
Never forget that this violence also impacts Black girls and Black women, especially Black trans women, as well as other Black people who are not cishet Black men; non-binary Black people, Black sex workers, Black LGBTQIA people and people who are combinations of these identities.
Recognize how this impacts us does not mean to then ignore the very real intraracial gendered/sexualized violence, and that existence of the latter is not a free pass for the State to engage in violence on Black girls or any Black people. The existence of intraracial violence, what every race experiences, is not an excuse for the State to engage in systemic violence on Black bodies. Besides, the very idea that State violence on Black bodies is for “punishment” for intraracial behavior is a facet of anti-Blackness; the notion that we have to “audition” for humanity itself and that “respectability" can "earn/prove" it (which it cannot).
Violence like this is a reproductive justice issue (H/T Loretta Ross) for Black women and other Black people who can get pregnant. (Reproductive justice addresses a combination of factors beyond solely pro-choice rhetoric; freedom from and to conceive has a long history for Black women.) It is a feminist issue. It matters. It shapes the fear that some Black people have about having children. So many of those murdered are under the age of 25. Again, this little Black girl was 7 years old.
(Thanks to @sassycrass for raising her name again last night on Twitter and to @MsJamilahAisha for creating the petition. I made the remembrance graphic; photos are from The Associated Press and Voice of Detroit.)
