"A black body is an idealized physical body that absorbs all incident electromagnetic radiation, regardless of frequency or angle of incidence." WIKIPEDIA
I recently a sent a query, via Instagram, to the world -- black body bidness. Can't help but feel a certain type of way, the way "body" gets assigned. Colloquially. Racially. Generally. Eceteraly. Bottom line? I'ma always have a problem with distillation, unless it's in a bottle. Whole people, my people, black people, have been reduced to carcasses. It's become academic, theorized, and co-opted by talking heads -- melanized. And it seems I'm screaming into a paper cup; like I'm the one who's tripping. A gaslit bitch raising sand for no reason. But words matter. The more we say it, the more it knits itself into "reality". But I ain't no...body. Right?
