If you know of any people of color attending @SXSW (Blk, Latino, Asian) and they are doing major things within the interactive space and/or start up world please let me know. I would like to possibly grab a photo and/or small video interview of you and your suggestions for a client project taking place during SXSW in Austin. Please hit me via DM @laydeefly for more information.
You, America, are screwed.
Does Stones Throw have plans to release any more Dilla projects?
We always talked about releasing—and we wouldn’t call it this—but a Donuts part two.
Dilla’s beat tapes always had these great titles, named after unhealthy food that he wasn’t allowed to eat. The doctors would always tell him that he couldn’t have Burger King, he couldn’t eat this, he couldn’t eat that. So he always named his beat tapes based around that. He had one that was really great that’s still unreleased called The Pizza Man—and we always wanted to do something with it.” —Peanut Butter Wolf, talking about unreleased Dilla in a recent Complex interview.

You don’t have to come from Africa to have dark skin. You can come from any part of the world and be born with a darker shade of skin.
Instead of demonizing dark skin. Understand the beauty in color.
Reblogging this for the message and also for people who don’t know what actual dark skin is. When a writer writes a character as having “dark skin” this is what they are talking about. Every single one of these women are beautiful.
