Black people have poured so much into America and have gotten so little, if nothing, in return. Instead, we’re left depleted physically, emotionally, financially—systemically. Bit by bit.
Black Americans deserve better—to live a life of safety, freedom, and have our needs met.
America doesn’t give us that. Hasn’t given us that. And it’s time we experience free rein.
I’m not saying that everyone should flee and stop fighting for Black equity. We just deserve a breather and to experience normalcy (whatever that is.)
Like having encounters with the police without fearing for our lives. Having access to quality healthcare and receiving adequate treatment (especially Black mothers).
You know, basic rights.
