Akilah. 24. NYC by way of the Queen City. Take your brown eyes, your pretty smile, your silhouette.

WARNING: Do not take this blog too seriously. It is all encompassing of the fleeting thoughts I have, even if they are just momentary. Don't read too far into me.

Insta-Lately 7.7.14 (#math)

+ Chilled in LA for a week prior to VidCon and fell in love with Santa Monica Pier

+ Started working at MTV producing videos for MTV(other). You should go subscribe on YouTube because I’m going to be in a lot of stuff very very soon (!!!)

+ + Celebrated the 4th in Brooklyn with fireworks and festive clothes and good friends

+ Reunited with Hannah Hart at VidCon and kinda sorta made some plans to do some things in the future that might excite you because they legitimately excite me (!!!)

+ Went to Disneyland for the first time. I don’t think it holds a candle to WDW, but Mickey plays drums in their parade and that was some next level awesomeness

Thanks for live tweeting. This was an important discussion and I think it’s great for those who weren’t there to know we’ve got their backs.

An American Attempt at Explaining “OFFSIDE” in Soccer/Futbol if ya nasty.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Hey I just watched your #AskAkilah video (pt 2), and I was really offended when you told all your viewers who didn't support gay marriage to leave your channel. Your channel is supposed to be based on comedy, and quite frankly that wasn't funny. Not everyone can agree on everything and for you to kick people off your channel because they didn't agree on a certain matter is just wrong, and defies the whole purpose and beauty of Youtube and America (being free to express your opinions and beliefs)

Okay, here’s a history lesson: The right to free speech (first Amendment) means the government cannot arrest you for what you say or believe. It does not, however, mean I personally have to listen, agree, sit idly by, or host your beliefs. And guess what? I’m not going to.

YouTube is a great platform and America is a great nation. I like to think my channel is pretty great too. And the beauty of it is that at the end of the day it belongs to me and my opinions. You disagree with me? Leave. Rather than post b.s. anonymous messages on my tumblr account, why don’t you get a spine and make hateful bigoted videos on your own channel? I’m not going to validate your backwards thinking by asking you to stay. You are not owed my empathy or agreement.

You didn’t think me saying to get off my channel if you disagree with gay marriage was funny? GOOD. It’s not a joke. There are plenty of places in the world to be hateful towards a group of people to no benefit of yourself. Go there. Get. Off. My. Channel.

And don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
