Does Ra(sun) not love your brown skin wholeheartedly?
You must learn to do the same.
Were you not born to soar?
To rise above all obstacles presented.
Are you not King?
The one descendant from royal blood.
Are you not worthy?
After being created in divine imagine.
For 500 + years we have not been able to heal. Our very own existence has not been able to heal a very deep wound. Layers and layers of inhumane treatment, miseducation, and tyranny. We as in the African diaspora. Or any diaspora for that matter. Although the pain is universal, we are all one.
It has saddened me that something so powerful such as a name has become nothing more than an ongoing hashtag. These hashtags are growing at alarming rates. Leaving bodies breathless, families broken, and reasoning barely there. The disgusting reality of police brutality.
With decades of oppression, the “black” agenda is still very unclear. I myself do not hold all the answers but i have a great refrence to get US in the right direction. The Black Panthers Powerful Ten-Point Program sourced from Huey P. Newton book, “War Against the Panthers.”

We must love, support, and unite.Although our problems are much much deeper than police brutality, no more lives shall be taken by the corrupt law enforcement.
