What is shade?
Nothing but the shadow of something that light crosses over.

What does the term “throwing shade” mean?

It means ppl will try to block your light by casting shadows beneath you with their words. They will talk about you and try to expose your weaknesses, sometimes to your face. All the while, revealing their own darkness bcuz shade can not pass under light undetected. They may think they’re going over your head, but they are actually beneath you. No different than a shadow beneath your feet. Always remember, shade needs light to exist. Take away your light and you take away their power. Don’t respond. ReMove yourself and it has no power.
