You know that feeling you get when you find yourself apart of some black panther-esque display of activism for social justice?
Please be reminded that just as the spirit of black pride and excellence that fueled our heroes in their fight against our oppressors lives on in us —so does the spirit of fear that fueled hateful acts such as the enslaving of Africans and African Americans and such as the genocide of Indigenous people and Jews.
Don't let any expression of denial cause you to lose sight of the realness of these blatant acts of hatred that they refuse to acknowledge and address. It doesn't matter who's in the White House. We've always been overcomers, let's continue to overcome. Be safe, be blessed, be black ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿🖤
