THE BLACK WOMAN

It’s really hard being a BLACK WOMAN. The most disrespected person is a BLACK WOMAN. The most unprotected woman is a BLACK WOMAN. The most neglected woman is a BLACK WOMAN.

Now, let’s talk about the history of Black Women: Black slaves, many of whom were women,were often abused by their owners and white people. This abuse extended beyond the physical and psychological abuse directly related to how slaves were treated, and include the exploitation of black women slaves in order to advance different scientific practices and techniques. Black female slaves were sexually abused by white men and were forced to breed with their white male slave masters to bear mulatto children to maintain white supremacy, have more slaves to pick cotton and produce superior slaves. Black female slaves received the same treatment in Brazil, Hispanic America, the Carribean, etc. However, rape of white women were prevented and feared.

I’m sorry y’all but I am crying. I can’t stop sharing this. I don’t want to make you sad but I want you to feel this. As a human, I need you to feel this. I have already been aware of these things but rn we are in a time in history where people want to listen again and learn and be apart of change so I show you this not to trigger you but to remind you of where we have been when it comes to United States. My history runs deep and this is just a portion but this is the portion that has traumatized me the most and I NEVER WANT TO FEEL THIS PAIN AGAIN! I want our reality to be so far beyond this that I have more tears of joy than my sorrow. I’m so hurt in my heart. I would put my life on the line for those babies if I could. I hate that I can’t fix everything, I just hate it!!! God please help me to let go of the things I cannot control and have the clarity and strength to change everything I can!!! #WeHaveSurvivedSoMuch #ThatIsStrength #ThatIsCourage #StillWeRise #NeverForget #TheySurvivedThat #WeCanSurviveThis ~Keke Palmer

Breonna Taylor was asleep in her own bed getting her rest to wake up and save lives (as a first responder studying to be a nurse) and her precious life was taken by systematic racism and negligence by Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove. Too often Black women who die from police violence are forgotten. Let’s stay loud,keep demanding justice for Breonna Taylor and her family and SAY HER NAME. #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor

Stop Killing Black Women!

Black Women Deserve Better.

Black Womens’ lives have value and worth.

Here are some notable Black women:

It’s absolutely heartbreaking when Black women are being shamed for rocking their natural hair. Natural black hairstyle is absolutely not ghetto.

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) ranked her world No.1 in singles on 5 separate occasions between 2002-2017. “Black women are not supposed to push back and when they do, they’re deemed to be domineering, aggressive,threatening, loud”. -Serena Williams.

I am Proud to be a Black Woman.

I am an Unapologetic exquisite Black Woman.

Black women can do anything. We’ve proven that time and time and time again.

“Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of a society”-Angela Davis

I’m convinced that we Black Women possess a special indestructible strength that allows us to not only get down, but to get up, to get through, and to get over. -Janet Jackson.

How can we help Black Women:

•Protect Black Women always

Respect Black Women always

•Support Black Women always

Believe in Black women always.
