I read people’s post that black people have become lazy, stagnant and don’t fight for their rights like our ancestors once did.  They think we are flakey when it comes to boycotting politics, sports and luxury brands. What else are we going to do? Stop watching sports altogether?  Stop shopping in general? I feel like we should create our own football league and stores, but not enough of us are in it together like we used to be. I personally do not believe there is much more we can do

You ever been in so much pain that you would rather die?  And not only die, but take yourself out of your own misery?  And not only kill yourself, but do it in the worst way possible because that’s all you think you deserve.  That’s exactly what some mental illnesses feel like and is the reason why some people opt for death.  I want to explain this so people understand just how empty and painful it feels to want to commit suicide.  I always ask that the LORD has mercy

xennials

Xennials is a new term coined by Sarah Stankorb.  It’s a micro-generation of people born between 1977 and 1985. I think a lot of Xennials were frustrated that they were clumped in with Millennials.  We didn’t have all the privileges and perks of Millennials.  I think it’s fair to say that most of us feel that we were the last of the Mahicans. For one, we didn’t have social media to vent to.  And our parents probably would be in jail for beating us after calling the cops on them

I didn’t like the short film, “Nappily Ever After.”  I didn’t appreciate the title and I didn’t like the idea that it perpetuated the agenda that natural hair is bad.  It was just silly to me and way too predictable.  I understand it was trying to teach women to like their natural hair, but I did not like how they went about conveying their message.  It was one of those movies where I was screaming like I would in ridiculous scary movies when all they had to do was run.

I was raped when I was three years old.  I never said a word because I didn’t know I was supposed to or how to say something.  I kept it to myself for almost a decade until I was almost adopted.  But guess what happened when I spoke my truths?  The statutes of limitations in Indiana of 7 years did not allow prosecution to occur.  I have always wondered how these other women have been able to come forward and have justice for their rape events, but not everyone else.
