There have been so many horrible things happening in the country and seeing the event in Charlottesville is incredibly disappointing, infuriating, and baffling. To believe that it's being excused or overlooked by idiots (whoops) people in leadership and supported by dumb fucks (whoops again) small minded people is unnerving. While it's nothing new to me, POCs, or down ass white folk (hey y'all 🙋🏿) it's still crazy to see it unfold -- again. Dealing with race on this micro scale of food, many people think the person behind Follow My Gut is a white guy and it's a shock when they see me for the first time in photos, my stories, or when I walk through the door. I'm a dark skin, opinionated, black girl and I'm so happy about that, but even in food I've encountered my share of racists fuckers (no whoops there). I even wrote ALL 👏🏿ABOUT👏🏿 IT 👏🏿a while back and you can check it out at the link in my bio. At the macro level, as the world struggles with the racists, homophobes, nazis, basically pieces of shit out there don't let them stop or intimidate you. Sure they may be loud or have tiki torches (like, wtf?) stay being you and try your best to stand up for yourself if someone comes at you. You're bomb as hell and that makes some people angry. Screw them and radiate like always because you'll always be better than them anyway.
