The White Tantrum Heard Across The Nation

At no time in the HISTORY OF THIS NATION, have White people ever been told no, and they do not like it. They are like two-year-olds that are having a tantrum because their parents put them in time out. It is fine as long as they are the ones setting the rules for Black people and People of Color. They are uncomfortable being told they can’t gather in groups and go where they want to go. They are upset that things have become inaccessible to them. White people can’t stand for someone to tell them what they can and cannot do.

Anger Translator: Y’all Aint Gonna Keep Testing Governor Andy Beshear’s Patience!

While I know he is a calm leader, in my mind, Governor Beshear needs an Anger Translator like Luther on Key and Peele. I am volunteering for that role. While Governor Beshear is remaining calm during his daily briefings, in my mind, he is saying, “Give me a fucking break!! What part of HEALTHY AT HOME are some of yall not understanding? Really? You wanna play fucking basketball? REALLY? In the middle of a pandemic? No one is drafting you. NO. ONE. Not one single coach. GO HOME!!

It Doesn’t Have To Take A Pandemic For Us To Care.

I believe that goodness and compassion are the core of who we are and who we can be.  It shouldn’t have taken a pandemic for that to happen. It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to care about our neighbors. It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to be concerned about the least of those. It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to reassess the economic structure of this nation and how it benefits very few at the top and tramples on the many at the bottom. It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to be the village. It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to care. 

But sometimes things are turned upside down for us to put them right side up again.

Reimagining, Recreating, and Rising In the Wake of Coronavirus

During this time, I challenge you to take the time to see yourself and ask yourself some questions. While I have been home, these are some of the questions that starting coming to the surface for me: 

Is the life I have been living the life that I genuinely want to live?
Are the people I am giving my energy, time, and love to worth it?
Why didn’t you pause and take the time to read that book, watch that show, enjoy your life?
What was so important in your life that you put your life on the back burner?
Is this relationship one that I want to spend giving my energy?

Meghan Didn’t Come To Play With You Hoes! 

This world has NEVER appreciated Black women. EVER!!!! If Meghan touched her baby bump, White people hated her. If Meghan was compassionate towards children, White people hated her. If Meghan breathed, White people hated her. And White people can attempt to make this about ANYTHING ELSE, but we all know the truth. It would have been fine if Meghan was cleaning Buckingham Palace. They wouldn’t have had ANY problem with Meghan whatsoever if she was “the help.” They wouldn’t have had ANY issue with Meghan if she “stayed in her place.”
