Over 400 Women Shared What They Would Do At Night If They Weren’t Afraid.

It is like women are trapped when the sun goes down. We are not living our lives to the fullest, not because it is dark but because of men lurking in the dark. It is not the dark that frightens us; it is the fear of men’s actions in the darkness. I pray one day we live in a world where women can just live, and we do not have to be afraid of what lurks in the dark, who hides in the shadows, and things that go bump in the night..

Are You Suffering From Being “Excessively Black?”

Please know, being Excessively Black may lead to telling Karen to STFU, speaking about racism all the time, calling out racist bullshit.

Dwelling In The Middle Is No Longer A Fucking Option

There is no middle ground when the color of my skin makes you send me death threats. I refuse to meet in the middle when my very life is at stake. I refuse to meet in the middle when the police are gunning down innocent Black people. I refuse to meet in the middle when people try to overthrow the government to keep a racist in office. I refuse to meet in the middle when there is no accountability!

Downtown Louisville Is Just Missing The Whites Only Signs

Louisville is in a position to either start redesigning downtown so that it will be inviting for all people to come or watch it continue to fail. The nation is changing and it no longer trends towards whitewashing. If Louisville wants to change the economics of downtown, it can no longer lead with whitewashing downtown. It can no longer lead with allowing businesses to take up residence downtown with racist policies.

It Is Time We Had A White History Month

This month, while I appreciate you learning about Black people, I am challenging you to learn about White people. Take the time to learn the TRUE story of White history. Don’t take the time to believe the made up history but look at White people’s reality in America. Don’t take the “this isn’t me” route, but look at White history as a whole. And go into it knowing the history will not be pretty. It is not a history laced with lemonade and apple pie. It is not the history that you have been taught in high school textbooks. But it a history that is filled with murder, mayhem, and pain. It is a history filled with the unimaginable suffering of Black people at the hands of White people. If White people take the time to do that, everything you wanted to know about Black people will become evident. You can never know me and the truth of Black History in America until you are ready to face yourself.
