where do we go from here? been stuck in my bubble with how to go from here.
I don’t think life can ever go back to “normal”.
I feel a different kind of tension when I meet a white person for the first time.
lol i feel multiple feelings but one that sticks out now is a sense of white people trying to prove to me they’re not racists. lol
It’s funny, but sad.
I’m happy tho, I feel free in a weird way. I feel like we gained some of our power back, mentally.
Like we knew there was an elephant in the room the whole time, & now it’s okay to speak out about it.
Still learning where I go from here tho, slowly but surely taking my OWN steps.
I encourage all of you to do the same.

this fight didn’t start for us this morning, not yesterday or even last Monday.
this has been our fight our whole lives.
Growing up black is something you are reminded of day in & out. the only thing that changes as we grow up is our knowledge and awareness of how subbed out we really are.
So that’s why we’re angry, why I’m angry.
I’m 24 & nothing has changed.
Not from people I considered friends, not from the older lady at the check out, not from the cops who were sent to “protect” us.
So I’m sorry if what I say offends you, but take it personal because it’s been personal for me for a long time now.
ALL LIVES CAN’T AND THEY WON’T MATTER UNTIL BLACK LIVES MATTER.
