beacon of Blackness.
Solidarity.
Not a lot of brothers come through the office in my line of work....
But on the rare occasion that they do, and i'm not at my desk, I want them to feel a sense of comfort that there's Blackness amiss here....

no amount of wiki, culture vulturing, assimilation, studying, etc. will ever lead to the intimate understanding and connection and importance of this meager staple of the Black collective diaspora.

Are you Black or white?

The lotion tells me one thing....but the lack of a brush tells me another.

Asian perhaps?

When it was high school I was deathly afraid of talking to someone with a booger in my nose. Kept a mirror in my pocket for the exact purpose of checking for boogers.

Specifically- Lawry's, olive oil, soy sauce, sriracha, salt, pepper, garlic powder. Apparently this little file drawer doubles as a pantry.

Toothbrush, floss, toothpaste. Advil and antacids. Chapstick. Lotion, and finally some wet wipes in case shit gets real.
