We Are Strong!
The hypocrisy of it all. We have to be strong all the damn time, and if we show weakness, it’s a problem. Sometimes we don’t want to be strong, and we just want to rest and not carry the world on our damn shoulders. I have heard horror stories of black women not getting the treatment they need in the hospital when they deliver because of a doctor’s bias. Some have even died giving birth. All women should get the same treatment when going into the delivery room. I have experienced a nurse and a doctor telling me I could take the pain while in labor. Another doctor and a nurse stepped in, and I was given my epidural. That should have never taken place. During the protest, black women are treating poorly by the police. We should be able to protest our rights without worry about dying or getting hurt by the very own people who are supposed to protect US. Black women in politics have to carry themselves in such a way to not seem angry or aggressive because they get a bad label or rep. When a man does it, it’s normal, and he’s passionate or intense on what his beliefs are. Black women are the most unprotected women out there. We carry the weight of the world on our backs and are expected to take it and smile.
Now is the time to uplift our black women, protect our black women, love our black women, stand up for our black women, and let our black women be themselves. Other cultures tan to get our skin, get surgery to have the bodies we do and copy the culture we create. It’s funny how other races copy US but hate US at the same time. Hell, some of US even hate US. Now is the time to appreciate what black women have endured and brought forth in this world. We are doctor’s, lawyer’s, entrepreneur’s, corporate exec’s, mother’s, daughter’s, aunt’s, grandmother’s, speakers, actresses, singers, performer’s, producer’s, director’s, writer’s, politician’s, activist’s, designers, and more. We already have proven worthiness, and we demand to be treated as such. We aren’t asking for a seat at the table; hell, we have established time after time We can create our own table. It’s time to give credit where credit is due. 2020 has birthed many black women entrepreneurs. WE will continue to overcome and be successful. Black Women Rock!! Until Next Time!
Talk To You Soon!!
