In nearly every conversation, there is something that releases the pressure from my chest by forcing a giant laugh. Me: yes i had soup and chips but whatever someone else has smells delish Clark: k just as long as you ate something how do you spell Bodasifa? He was hospitalized from November 11–19 and again from December 1–6. Clark: oh baby do not say sorry Me: i really was just exhausted! Clark: I totally understand i know you were so tired and I know that you want to make sure I’m going to be okay and safe and really makes me want to cry Clark: i feel the same way about you I want to always want to make sure you are safe and warm and comfortable Clark: and I didn’t mean to yell but you are so stubborn Me: no i know haha SO ARE YOU, for the record Clark died two months later. I listened to “The Ocean” by Sunny Day Real Estate, the song he heard when he imagined me walking down the aisle at our wedding.On February 20, 2009, he had emergency surgery to remove a tumor the size of a baseball from his gut. I cried when Archers of Loaf, the one band Clark insisted make an appearance on any playlist, announced its reunion tour.And I also want to discuss what it means for an HIV advocate who is white to be a supportive ally. So much of how I understand what it means to be anti-racist, if that's even possible, is not just about mastering the right or wrong things to say. It's something you have to constantly work against.

No, not Lady Chatterley’s lover (I find the dialect too distracting!

What does it mean for black men to celebrate black love?
What about the objectification of black men as hot sexual beings? Let's just say I try to be somewhat forgiving about what pops out of your mouth in the heat of passion. I have no interest in policing people's fantasies, but we must be able to confront the most taboo aspects of our sexuality.
