I hate Nazi’s.
Much like Oprah, I think the world would be better off if they were all dead. In my fantasy’s at the end of Endgame, not only does Tony Stark get rid of Thanos, he gets rid of anyone and everyone who thinks like him.
In my version of the ending of that film, there is no more racism or hatred because all the people that seek power through hatred dissapear to where ever they go when Tony Stark snaps his fingers.
However that’s not the reality.
The reality is that nazi’s are here and they aren’t going anywhere unfortunately, unless the Avengers show up between the writing now and…………just kidding, they didn’t show up. We’re stuck with Nazi’s.
I am here to fight against them. Specifically the ones who believe in trying to murder Black women, while secretly being apart of creepy rape cults. Because that’s the experience that I’ve lived.
We live the lives we are called to live, even when we don’t understand the purpose of that calling.
I do now. I know it sucks, no one wants to be the poster child for girls who get raped by white supremacists, no one wants to be the poster child for falling through the cracks. It’s not a fun place to be, it’s a struggle but I am still here.
Still writing, still sharing my stories, still writing fiction when I can find the energy and the inclination. I haven’t given up on myself, although I could.
I don’t even consider that an option anymore. I have too much of the world that I want to see, too many people I want to meet, and too many things that I want to accomplish.
The Gypsy people, were once Kings and Queens. Filling the world with majick and wonder. As time went on they went from being leaders to being oppressed people.
The Jamaican people were brought over on Enslavement Ships to Jamaica. I may never know where my ancestors came from, but I know for damned sure they weren’t born to bow to Nazi’s who want me dead because of the color of my skin.
I am here to Empower young Black women so that they don’t have it as hard as I did. I want to create opportunities and experiences for them that I never had as a child. I want to be the one that is able to give them a chance to succeed despite the abuse they experience every day.
There is not a Black girl or boy on the planet that doesn’t understand what abuse does to the human psyche, all of us are born to understand it. To experience it, and to thrive in spite of it.
I learned that from watching Black is King, but it’s a belief that I have held for a very long time.
We are not the enemy, but we absolutely won’t remain silent in the fear of nazism and the bullshit that comes with white supremacy.
Sending all my love,
