I’ve tried to not write in this topic.
I’ve tried to keep my piece.
However, this is some STRAIGHT UP BULL-ish!!!
I’m a Mother of 2 Black young men…
I’m a Mother of a Strong Black, College Graduate that speaks up for herself…
I’m a Wife of a Black King…
I’m proud of my family but I’m also freaking scared out of my mind when they leave the house without me. When my husband leaves to work, I drop down to my knees everyday and say my prayers.
My boys want to hang with their cousins and just be kids, My daughter Loves to travel… I worry about the “what if’s” that could happen.
I shouldn’t have to live like this! We shouldn’t have to live like this!!! This is some BULL-ISH!!!
Please understand, when I say “Black Lives Matter” that’s just what I mean. Not saying All lives DON’T matter, but right now, our BLACK lives are the ones being targeted…again.
When will this ish stop? Why is it, that my skin color seem to be a threat of some kind?
– Black + Hoodie= Menace/Thief
– Black + Dredlocks/Natural Hair=Unkept/Unprofessional
– Black + Colored Hair=Ghetto
– Black + Upset=Another angry black girl
I could keep going with this, but let me breakdown what those equations really add up to:
-Black + Hoodie=it’s freaking cold
-Black + Dredlocks/Natural Hair=Embracing the natural hair we have, chemical free (may as well say “going green”) for you to understand.
-Black+Colored Hair=Eccentric/Vibrant/Full of Life
-Black+Upset=speaking up to the injustice we face/speaking up for what’s right/speaking up PERIOD-POINT-BLANK!
It seems as if EVERYTHING we say or do is a problem. We ask for help-We wait for Authorities-We peacefully protest….We are STILL in the Wrong!!!
With everything going on, COVID-19, Police Violence, Killer Hornets, Class Of 2020 not being able to walk… this is depressing.
Video after Video after Video…
Sorry, NOT Sorry to vent but….
