Hey people! Hope everything is well out here for you in these Rona streets. As businesses and states are beginning to reopen social distancing measures are still in place so please be safe and I will do the same. My blog isn't for the weak hearted. It's for those who can wholeheartedly accept the honest truth if they agree with my perspective or not. What an awesome yet totally wicked world we are living in at the same damn time right? Black people had to deal with centuries of systematic oppression and discrimination as a whole. When I seen an article stating there are 615 billionaires in the USA and only 6 of them were black that was a wake up call of many for me. The playing field has never been fair. We weren't giving over 400 years of equal opportunities. I believe in my soul though there is no excuse for this behavior that Black people who commit acts of violence have been systematically brainwashed to hate due to centuries of blacks being hated on. History shows us patterns of black opportunities aren't given to us like white opportunities have been given to them. That time is changing rapidly before our eyes. Well for those who are paying attention to the law changes for the better and the opportunities that are coming our for black people at rapid pace one by one. Many corporations at this time continue to say black lives matter on their websites , in press releases and on their social media accounts. Doesn't even matter to me at this point if this statements they are saying is with real empathy or forced all that matters to me is the action behind the words. Left and right I'm seeing companies dedicate full blown initiatives putting up millions and billions of dollars toward the advancement of black people. As I continue to research and stay on top of this awesomeness to inform my people and also use some of these resources and knowledge for my self I can't help but smile and feel its a whole new era for my people. It took covid for the world to really sit still and see how black people have been treated in this country. To my white people reading this maybe you haven't been apart of the problem , maybe you aren't racist, but I am going to be honest with you. Majority of your black friends or colleagues don't give two shits about nothing you talking about unless it has to do with our people right now. Yes every social issue matters but right now we all about us and equality. It's our time, ya'll had yours since the beginning of time. Black people if you have a white business partner and they are not going hard as you to speak up of current issues, if they are not checking on you knowing this topic is so passionate to you. If they are in their own bubble and show no empathy as if they are so blinded to the fact of what's going on it's time to plan your exit strategy and leave them where they stand. The black come up is real. There is so much black love all around us. Create your own opportunities and get aligned with those who share the same values and mission as you with no barriers. Now back to it being our time. With the many possibilities opening up for our skinfolk right now I have a huge feeling within the next few years we will begin to see the beginning of the game being fair. We didn't have a over 400 years head start, but we about to catch up like people have never seen before. There are going to be more loans and grants going to blacks, more high level positions at companies for us, more college attendance and businesses starting. More opportunities for black men and black women in fields that were dominated by whites. This is going to not only be a global shift but an entire culture shift. Our people about to elevate and come up which is long deserved and overdue. There's so much more work to be done and equality will never happen over night, but hell to the yes its beginning! What an awesome time to be black in 2020. You are now witnessing the black come up!
Lately I can not get Jas Waters off of my mind. This beautiful accomplished woman who was in the entertainment/media/film industry who is no longer here. It is so important to check on your loved ones especially these days. In the covid-19 era we have no idea what's on our loved ones minds. We all see so much craziness all around us it can be stressful and take a toll on our mental health. As we know it does not matter how rich or famous you are, it doesn't matter how beautiful or successful you are. You can have everything and still feel as if something in your life is missing. A lot of suicidal people never leave a note or any warning. We have to be over cautious of our self and those around us. These are extremely sensitive times. I am writing this letter in honor of Jas Water as a black woman, journalist, writer and suicide prevention advocate.
