Nicki Minaj had had a positive effect on my life and my career. Always reblog.

Meet Cory Nieves. He’s a dapper, 10-year old CEO of Mr. Cory’s Cookies who started his own booming cookie business in an effort to help his mom buy a car after moving from NYC to New Jersey in 2009.
This is cute and all. And goddess knows I am down for young black kids excelling on their own terms. But these pics kinda make me feel uncomfortable? Just being honest and sharing these feels. The dapper aesthetic wreaks of capitalism. The shoe polishing, the business, capital incurring suit. JCrew aesthetic. Same goes for a lot of lesbian fashion blogs I see about being “dapper” or, aka, wearing the literal uniform of a capitalist. But we have limited options? But can’t diff bodies wearing these clothes challenge the pre-existing connotations that go along with business, capital, and CEOS? Mixed emotions ~le sigh~
