to avoid paying a construction fee, jack mubiru, a father of the skateboarding scene in uganda, fabricated a story about building a private enclosure for a pet crocodile. most local officials and neighborhood residents had never heard of skateboarding. yet six years later, the sport has spread from the skate park to the streets, attracting children as young as five and adult women.

realest shit i ever seen on tumblr
My followers need to repost this. It needs to reach a lot of people.
when i was a kid, i used to picture MLK being my father…cause my real pops was Black [Dominican] but only intermittently present, so my imagination filled the space with images of MLK cause I thought he was just the illest.

Then my pops died,
just like both of them.
now there’s no space….
only the mystery and task
to piece together
that barely ever was.
