Super Heroin with or without e 2008

The Sand Ninja is a diasporic warrior who fights against neo-colonialism. During the day (and some nights) she is a professional Gold Digger. She hustles money from her adoring fans to fund her struggle against oppression and her war against bad culturally colonized fashion. Exile, her family debt, as well as financial and language constraints keep her isolated from her homeland, people and culture. She constructs an identity made up of her own melancholic recollections of her people as well as a pan-"middle eastern" look created by Western projections and stereotypes.

It's difficult to pinpoint where Sand Ninja was born, but she stands
for the freedom and liberation of her "people", be they South Asian,
North African, etc…Her liberation strategy is "By any means" even if
that means using her sexual powers. She is pushing 40 (or beyond) and still
stunningly gorgeous, with a belligerent temper. Cultural critics have
coined phrases about here such as "Sand don't crack" and "olive green is fighting mean".

For several years, the Sand Ninja made public appearances and used flirtatious techniques to begin a dialogue on issues of gentrification, land theft and criminalization of the poor, while "decolonizing brows" by drawing in a unibrow
