ahahaha thank you. For real tho, I don’t trust muslims bros who are all ‘jannat beneath my mother’s feet’ all the damn time. they are v suspicious. it’s easy to recite khalil gibran but who’s helping your mom set the table at dinner every night?? when was the last time you made her chai without making a big deal about how amazing you are? do you extend that same respect to your sisters (actual sisters not ~ummah sisters~) also they come off as very ‘only extending respect to the women who are related to me who i hold up to very high standards’.

"I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome. But the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations."

POC Travel Blogs
So, I really like travel blogs. What’s not to love? Seeing the world through the eyes of other people and even possibly some ideas for the future. When I’m going somewhere new, I love to check out some of my favorite travel blogs to see if they’ve been there and if I could get some advice.
Now, unfortunately, as a POC, it used to frustrate me that all my favorite travel bloggers had been white. Don’t get me wrong, they were all pretty good but there seems to be a stereotype that people of color, especially black people, don’t travel (outside of the US). Also, as a person of color, you might have very different experiences due to the color of your skin.
So, I thought I’d possibly share some travel and expat blogs from people of color and feel free to add on to them.
- Women of Color Living Abroad
- Ragga Muslims
- Moscow Through Brown Eyes
- I Luv 2 Globe Trot
- Sojourner Walker
- I’m Black & I Travel
- 1 Brown Girl
- Try Anything Once
- The Ocean Escape
- American Black Chick in Europe
- Oneika The Traveler
- Nicole Is The New Black
- Fly Brother
- Sunshine & Stilettos
- Absolute Travel Addict
- Girl Gone Travel
- Mo Travels
- Brown Girls Fly
- Urban Travel Girl
This is by no means an exhaustive list and I’d love to hear about your favorite travel bloggers.
Extra: Black Girl Travel is a touring company that caters to and is owned by black women, so check it out.
