Hidden Magic: Katlego Kgabale

As kids, we grew up with our imagination running wild though our minds. As least I did! I would spend hours bent over a book, flipping recklessly through pages for words and images to feed my daydreams. Kgabale illustrated work offers up little brown girl dreams that I would have loved to come across as a child. But even as an adult, I can still appreciate and admire the creativity behind each piece.

'But you think your race is the most beautiful and the best- that's why you only re-blog pictures of Black people!'

No.

I re-blog pictures of Black people on this pagan/spiritual/natural living blog because in other blogs like these, no one posts pictures of us. I got tired of being excluded, and instead of trying to police someone else’s blog, I made my own. My blog does not post pictures just of Black women.

The issue with posting more pictures of women of other races is that 1) I don’t just post for the sake of diversity- I post because the picture is either beautiful, artistic, or the person is outside in nature or has a natural theme going on.Rarely will you find a person’s picture on this blog that does not meet that criteria.

2) Every time I do try to post pictures of women of other races, their tags are filled to the brim with disgusting, fetishizing, racist, creepy photos. Absolutely not on my fucking blog. I have to dig down deep to find pictures of non-Black women of color, but I’m willing to do so.

The reason, once again, why I don’t post pictures of white people is because their are already a thousand blogs that do so. Go find any other fucking pagan blog and I promise you they post nothing but white people. Nothing. But.

And I never said that white women couldn’t be beautiful. I said that I’m sick and tired of seeing white women portrayed as the only valid form of beautiful, while Black women and other WoC are exotified and fetishized. I want us to be the center of attention for once- and why is it that when a white blogger posts nothing but pictures of white people, but as soon as I post nothing but PoC, there’s a fucking problem?

The funny thing about the racists on this website is the fact that they get so frustrated and upset when their name ends up on a fucking ban/block list- it frustrates them.

Just like sewer rats who prefer to live in darkness with other sewer rats, once you pop the fucking lid of they all scatter.

Or black pride. Black people can be racist too.

Why do you follow me again?

To spew racist nonsense, of course. Black pride isn’t racism, it’s a social movement of trying acknowledging the constant struggle to survive the continuous impacts of racism. Black folks being prejudiced is different from the issue of Black pride.
