Black Enough Is Simply Not Enough….
All questions have answers – even if you do not know the answers or do not like the answers.
There is seriousness in jest.
Being resilient does not mean that Black people should ever forget our horrendous and inhumane enslavement by Whites. Black resilience does not mean that we portend to not recognize racism.
Black people have been — and are –oppressed as a race; we do not have the choice or the luxury of individualism.
Black unity does not mean Black uniformity.
I have been asked if the end justifies the means. My answer is ‘No’. It is the ‘means’ that justify the end.
We who are Black should not be forever in the mode of, without compensation, teaching White folk about race and racism. I am tired of so-called White ignorance and the pretense of race ignorance coming from White lips. I am tired of the multitude of excuses made for racist White folk.
Racism is ugly and dangerous. Racism should not be excused or tolerated. And, if White folk or others want an education relative to what racism is and more, they should expect to — want to — pay for that education.
Reactions and responses to BlackAngryWomen have been both educational and reflective.
One of the more recent ‘Black’ interventions involved a racist posting in the workplace. In that situation, the White supervisor quickly apologized in writing to the Black employee, removed the racist workplace posting, etc.
BlackAngryWomen commends the Black employee – a ‘Black’ woman – for stepping forth, expressing her anger in writing, and making a difference….
‘As long as there is breath, there is hope….’
‘Don’t forget our reparations’.
