Colorful Diaspora

This little description is going to keep changing because I am human. Humans change. I live and teach in New Orleans. I am black and very queer. I hope you enjoy some of my musings. If not, then oh well.

Lord knows I don’t have the time to sit down and watch TV on a weekly basis but every week I religiously tune in to hulu to watch the chaos of bad girls club season 10 after work. That is where I met (not literally) Puerto Rican and California native Raquel Santiago, the “dumb blonde” the girls in the house absolutely love to hate. Sure, her voice annoyed the shit out of me for the first few episodes but my respect for her stems from her consistency on and off the show. What you see is what you get with that girl. So I did some digging and a little bit of stalking and I find this video of her taking on this religious bigot on the street while expressing her views on LGBTQ issues and abortion. She repeatedly interrupts this preacher to shout out to viewers that ”God loves everyone and he does not discriminate.” Now I don’t feel so bad about watching Bad Girls Club instead of getting a head start on my post spring break lesson plans on a Thursday night.
