There’s actually a pretty interesting historical component to this. During slavery, it was possible to buy your freedom if the slave owner allowed one to do so.You could not buy the freedom of another slave unless they were family. So, freed slaves would often return to buy the freedom of another and state that the person whose freedom they were attempting to purchase was a cousin, brother, mother, father, sister…when that person may have been a friend.They claimed them as family, in order to free them.

Argh Lagos has been frustrating and the hustle is real. As in how many times am I going to move real, how am I not literally starving real, will I ever have a real job real, humidity hates everything about my body real, but I’m glad that I can still find good moments and people between all that. There’s still a lot to get used to here, but I’m still glad to be home and away from New Mexico (I miss it a bit though lol). Yagazie
