I’M BLACK, GET OVER IT!! #FUBU
There will be instances where I don't have these looooong, extended blog entries for you all to read. In some posts I will speak my peace, leave you with what needs to be said, and I'll be on my way. This could've been one of those instances, but I'm DRAGGING IT lol! ... so with that being said,
BLACK BLACK BLACKITY
OFF BLACK, LIGHT BLACK, MEDIUM BLACK, DARK BLACK, MIDNIGHT BLACK, DUSTY BLACK, BLUE BLACK, KRIS-PITY BLACK, CLASSY BLACK, RATCHET BLACK ...hell orange is the new BLACK!
HAPPY (dedicated time to really "try" and box us in, but we know that our history is celebrated all day, ER’DAY!) BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
May you dodge gentrification and caucacity this month with the strength of every last ancestor behind you! I pray that non people of color will approach each one of my people this month with the TRUE and AUTHENTIC desire to seek understanding because they truly want to know! NOT because they’re enduring the backlash of provoking a situation with a person of color and are now somehow "victimized" *EYEROLL*
I pray that not only this month but each month to follow hereafter, we as a culture and as a people will show HELLA love to one another! I pray that little black girls and boys that are trapped in adult bodies, will seek and receive the healing we need and deserve! I pray that black businesses and dreams flourish this month to their full potential! I pray that black families will reconcile with each other this month! I pray that we all will see our worth, our significance, and our GREATNESS as black folk during this dedicated time! Despite the state of our country, despite the hate they impose, despite whatever adversities we face as a people this month, let’s grow, glow, and light this muh’fuggah up with our melanin and radiance!!! BE GREAT BLACK PEOPLE, BE GREAT! ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
peace, love and blessings
