As someone who was born and raised in the Bronx in the 80’s, this is what I grew up in. Sometimes I think it’s why I’m so rough, anxious, untrusting and doubtful of the government in this country. I used to look at other places around the world and I used to think, how could these people be in such positions of power?!? As I got older I began to see our country’s political and judicial systems as they were, an excuse to further their agendas while minorities went under.
Sometimes I wonder if it will ever change. If we will ever feel justice served, empathy and compassion from those who enforced segregation and judgement. They don’t care about us, they never have. I don’t want to lose hope but I’ve been seeing this happen for so long and it happens for so long before I was born. I have little doubt it will end before I die. This world is messed up and I hope things change because they should. My grandmother experienced racism, my mom experienced racism and now I’ve experienced racism. They things I’ve witnessed are despicable, where is the accountability for these people inflicting pain and trauma?! Will they ever take responsibility for their actions or will we continue to live together until the next time they feel like abusing and exploiting us as a people?!? I’m so tired. So many people don’t know the truth. The information is out there.
The internet is a just a place people can be their judgmental, arrogant, rude, inappropriate selves; without taking accountability for those actions.
Go watch this right now!!! THIS is history, the story they don’t teach us or don’t want us to know. I never understood where racism came from and who decided the hierarchy of human beings. This documentary explains in great detail, the history of this world and the birth of white supremacy. And how these white supremacists were encouraged by their governments and churches to divide and conquer.
🗣 There is NO SUPERIOR RACE.
HBO, you real for this one.
If you have hate in your heart at any capacity for another human being, I will say this to you, We all bleed the same red blood 🩸
Sometimes, I wake up with random bruises on my body!
I seldom feel inspired
Days without seeing the Sun, make me so depressed. Among other things.
Companies are really capitalizing on Black History Month in 2021.
It better be genuine. Put that money into the Black Communities you are claiming to support. That is all.
I’m just sayin 🤷🏻♀️
So please don’t ask
I don’t fit in anywhere. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Sometimes it’s high and sometimes it’s real low.
I feel like nobody listens to me when I talk; so I just STAY quiet 🤫
