Black American people who are descendants of American Chattel Slaves and our real (not performative) allies, I love you truly. Please take care of yourselves. May God keep, Blessed and cover us as we move forward living in this racist "New World". -- #MommyFab
I am posing this question to my Black American (descendants of American Chattel Slave) audience ONLY: what are your thoughts on US Reparations?
America will never be the country it proclaims to be without the restoration of Black Americans through an authentic and substantive reparations program to right the wrongs of 400+ years of apartheid.
As we talked, my Auntie said something that literally brought me to tears, "they used to pull us off the school bus and make us pick cotton". #MommyFab
I decided the toxic social hierarchy of American society and how it hates Black women was longer my burden to carry. #MommyFab
Do better, America. 400+ years of systemic racism is bullshit.
Substance over symbolism. #MommyFab
Every time a Black American is murdered by the police, I have to explain that murder to my child.
Just like Chauvin kept his knee on the neck of Floyd, that is symbolism for America keeping their knee on the neck of Black America.
The silence of injustice and racism is so loud, it's like a never ending scream.
