I’ve been appalled the past month at not only how black women have been under attack, but women period.
We shouldn’t pick a month that’s a milestone for the 19th Amendment (women’s suffrage) or an occasion where a woman of color is on a major presidential ticket.
In the past month, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Beyoncé, Cardi B, Meg Thee Stallion, Lori Loughlin, and of course Kamala Harris have been catching Hell.
Now whether or not it’s warranted, I believe in attacking the character, rather than the person for being a female and not acting “like a woman should”. What chauvinistic man originated and kept this nonsense relevant?
Look I’m not going to pretend like I can relate to a woman, especially a black woman. They undergo so much grief daily and it’s tripled due to COVID. I just salute them and do the best I can to be a listening ear.
This is the classic case of not saying anything if you don’t know what you’re talking about. Please have more respect and cander. I even see this locally as mayoral candidate Steph Smith is basically not being considered now that she’s in a runoff against an older, white doctor with a sketchy reputation.
The truth is some people and communities have a preconceived notion about women. They think they cannot or should not lead.
My response to my sisters and queens is to continue shining, inspiring and striving. I will support and uplift you every chance I get.
