Yesterday, Obama stated that, “At a certain point, I’ve just concluded, that for me, personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” Before this, he said things such as “my views on same-sex marriage is evolving” but he never came out and directly said that he supports gay marriage. My guess is that he did this to gain support from conservatives choosing between him and Mitt Romney. Although it is great that he supports same-sex marriage, many supporters may now turn to Mitt Romney!
I have written about spoken word before, but in this post, I would like to share with ya’ll some of my personal favorite spoken word artists! I think spoken word is so powerful, amazing, and empowering!
I absolutly LOVE Thick Chicks by Tamara Blue! I watch it every time I’m having a hard time with my self-esteem! It’s a great reminder that being skinny isn’t the only way to be beautiful!
Bridget Gray is absolutley AMAZING! This always reminds me of the sexism and misogny that is ingrained in our culture and music. This is such a beautiful, powerful piece.
I LOVE this!
