I've been a fan of #TOMS shoes for some time now. Part of my negro boho chic. I've been with it. But I just got my TOMS Holiday 2017 catalog in the mail and the images screamed at me. Lots of super cool, very hip white people, living the TOMS life. Nice. Even a little girl. She's rocking TOMS as well. Only photo of a person of color is the studious (thanks) needy black child who will obviously benefit from the thoughtful white people who buy TOMS and make the world better. Make his world better. Their world seems pretty nice, with the biking and chilling out and driving retro cars and using vintage cameras and swinging and getting piggy back rides. Maybe if the black kid studies hard enough, one day he might be able to do some of that stuff. But he needs to get to school. And he needs shoes. Fun comes later. After he becomes a success because of the graciousness of TOMS customers like the ones pictured. Great people. I used to buy TOMS. I was with it. Shoes. Glasses. I realize why I make photos of the world I live in, the world I see... it's because of this sh*t right here. TOMS, it was nice. I'm done.
Enjoy your white guilt shoes. I can have an iota of peace knowing that my purchases benefitted kids like the one pictured, but I do not appreciate being erased from the narrative of power and influence. Yo, TOM - you might win some but you just lost one. #TomsShoes

#PressPlay SOLO-
So-lo that I can see under the skirt of an ant,
So-lo that I don't get high no more when I "Geronimo!" I just go hit,
So-lo my cup is a rojo, my cholo, my friend
So-lo that I can admit
When I hear that another kid is shot by the popo it ain't an event
No more.
So-lo that no more high horses, so hard to wear Polo
When I do I cut the pony off, now there's a hole that once was a logo.
How fitting.
So-lo that I can give a fuck about what is trending.
Tryna cut down on my spending,
Regardless of winning, instead of pretending.
And bending over backwards
Over half of these hoes had work done,
Sayin' they want something real from a man,
Just saying it, we being real persons.
I hate that it's like this, I feel for you Ann,
I don't know what it's like with a skirt on.
So pardon me if I am being insensitive but darling this only worsens.
So-lo my halo, stay way low, it feels like it's bent.
So-lo that when they throw pussy on pesos I pay no attention to it.
So-lo that I am no rookie but feel like a kid,
Lookin' at the other kids,
With astonishment while I'm on punishment, watchin' the summer come close to an end
After 20 years in,
I'm so naive I was under the impression that everyone wrote they own verses.
It's comin' back different and yea that shit hurts me
I'm hummin' and whistlin' to those not deserving.
I'm stumbled and lift every word, was I working just way too hard? 📸 #AliLeRoi Lyrics: #Andre3000 #blackandwhitephoto #blackandwhiteisworththefight #blackandwhitephotography #JUSTBEINGBLACK #blackmen #blackman #outkast

It costs $1.75 to ride the bus or train one-way in LA. It costs $2.75 to ride the train or bus in NYC. A 7-day pass in LA costs $25 while a 7-day pass in NYC costs $32. In NYC your #metrocard gets you more bang for your buck. As for you #LostAngels, would you ride #publictransportation if you could be certain that it was cheaper and quicker than sitting in traffic? Or would you miss the view from the 101 too much? 📸 #AliLeRoi #JustBeingBlack #youngmetro #metroboomin #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #nikonphotography

By the time a child turns 8, they are in the 3rd grade and generally want to solve their own problems. They can usually count to 1,000 and develop some athleticism. Depending on their practice and exposure, their art work shows more detailed, realistic images. They can interact with their peers on a variety of topics.
What were you doing at 8? 📸 #AliLeRoi #headscarf #tasteofsoul #oldsoul #8yearsold #facepaint #photography #streetstyle #justbeingblack

According to the #UrbanDictionary, #SoupCoolers are defined as, "An insult usually directed at an African Americans about having large, big, thick lips. Insinuating that the more lips you have, the better you are at blowing on hot soup to cool it down." This young woman's name is Stacia. When I asked what her best feature was, she said her edges 📸 #AliLeRoi #JustBeingBlack #kyliejennerlipkit #snapseed #photographylover #photographyislifee #thicklips

For those of you who don’t know, I am from #Chicago. Arguably the only side worth claiming, the southside. And in Chicago, we don’t pop, shake or twerk. We step. To outsiders, it could look like swinging. I’ve been told it used to be called the Jitterbug and the Bop.
However the music moves you and whenever it moves you- when you step, do it in the name of love. 📸 #AliLeRoi #JUSTBEINGBLACK #SouthsideChicago #chicagosteppin #stepinthenameoflove #tasteofsoul #photographylife #blackfolks #blackandwhitephoto

LA HAS SOUL. Every year all of the soulful people meet at the #TasteofSoul where they taste their soul. It was founded 12 years ago by Danny Bakewell Sr.
It's still free and happens in the most soulful part of town-#Crenshaw. Each year, more than 350,000 people attend. I was able to capture just a few of them.

Well I guess I should get to work 😅 #Grateful #AliLeRoi #CBS


#PRESSPLAY ▶️ Hosed down daily with a gagging perfume.
America was a bastard, the illegitimate daughter of the mother country,
Whose legs were then spread around the world.
And a rapist known as freedom, free doom.
Democracy, liberty, and justice were revolutionary code names that preceded
The bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling
In the mother country's crotch
What does Webster say about soul?
All I want is a good home and a wife,
And a children and some food to feed them every night.
After all is said and done build a new route to China if they'll have you.
Who will survive in America?
