We, the African-American Black Man and Black Woman are the people with the lived, painful experiences expressed on the pages of most major and minor news media every day, and yes, it hurts. The lived experiences that have been dropped done on our souls were not of our choosing.
Collectively, Black People continue to live in an America rapped with the ropes of what the honorable Dr. Joy Degruy refer to as ” Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome,” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGjSday7f_8) and again, it hurts.
To understand just a piece of Black People’s pain, please listen to Coach Doc Rivers’ statement, “we love America but America doesn’t love us back.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3pHYsVtoEI).
When Black People want to give themselves uplifting, we often say, “We are still here (not murdered), or We are still standing, (able to stand on our own two feet;”) however, we are no longer willing for the bar to be set that low. It is 2021, and if not now, when will Black people be respected for 100% of our Womanhood and Manhood? 100% equity. Now is that time. Thank You. More To Come
