Can We Just Accept Everyone
We all Deserve Equality
It's been time for more of us to start to speak out on it... but why is is that Blacks are still so looked down on? I can't stand it! I mean it really bothers me. Especially because of the fact that I know so many Blacks doing great things and that have big dreams and goals for themselves. Why is it that just because of the color and pigment of our skin we are treated differently and made uncomfortable?
I was catching up with one of my childhood friends and he was just telling me about how he lives in Bloomington, Illinois and that although it is better in a sense that he doesn't have to worry about violence and all other things that come with living in the hood but he was saying how racist and intimidated Caucasian people are by us and how it really effects his mental.
While listening to him, it really hurt me to hear that just because of our skin tone, you have to give him poor service at any restaurant he chooses to dine in at, or look at him funny while he's walking down the street! Like what?! This is insane! Look at the bigger picture!
What astonishes me the most is how everyone is so gun hold crazy about the legalization of homosexuality rights when we can't even love one another just off the color of our skin! Come on now! I don't care about someones sexuality. But y'all mad over two men/women being able to love and be with one another but are discriminating against someones race which they have no complete control over?! is that okay??? OH NO!
What must we do to change this in our society? How long must we fight for equality? It really bothers me that the white man runs this world but we are the ones contributing so much talent and success to their triumphs.
If you look at the music industry, the white man runs that. So while the black man/woman might be the greatest and delivering impeccable talent they are the ones getting paid the least and last. Or how about the NFL, NBA, etc and how so many black males are bringing so much attention and revenue to these industries but are not receiving the compensation they deserve or the respect that is due for their talents and handwork?!
Can we please start voicing our opinions and standing up for ourselves. Can we please just be treated equally by the white man? Let's stop burying the truth just to save feelings and cover up how we truly feel. I know I can't be the only one who feels this way.
All I'm saying is if we're going to accept someones sexuality, can we please accept someones race too? Stop judging others off of things they cannot change. Ultimately, these are spirits we are fighting so we have to know that it's not the people but I feel as if it is something in them spiritually because this has been going on since the beginning of time. We have to unite, support other black businesses. Do your part. Stop beating down your own people. Support and uplift one another.
As always, I hope this helps someone and I really want us to take a deeper look at what is going on and how we can help society better itself as a whole. It is so easy to notice and name all the negative things that is going on but I want us to start speaking on the things we can do to create a positive change. Don't be afraid to do things that you think will better yourself and your community. Be the change you want to see! Create programs, groups, speak out! Whatever it takes, don't ever settle for less when we deserve way more. Remember you are beautiful and God loves you!
