Born Naked (feat. Clairy Browne) by Rupaul

“Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are? I’m telling the truth now We’re all born naked And the rest is drag”             As today is the last Friday of June, I couldn’t let the month end without posting about why it’s one of my favorite months of the year– it’s…

Freedom (feat. Kendrick Lamar) by Beyoncé

“Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs And when they carve my name inside the concrete I pray it forever reads Freedom”             When we talk about the Black experience in this country, we often talk about racism, violence, slavery, oppression, and discrimination.
