Some know her from the group ‘Blaque’ that Left-Eye created, some know her from the movie ‘Bring It On’. Either way, she impacted our lives and rests in our hearts.
Blaque was about to get back together and begin to do music again, but last night, Natina was killed in a hit-and-run. She died at age 32.

Rest In Peace Natina Reed. We’ll miss you.

These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.

A moment of silence for…

black-american-queen:

Every black man that is “ok with white people using the n-word”

That Asian girl who applauds Katy Perry dressing up like a Geisha

Those native American folks who are fine with the “Redskins” mascot

The Chicano/Latino boy who wants to “deport all the illegals”

A moment of silence for our fallen soldiers. They are lost to the cause.
