Stop Saying Black Women, Women, Are Going To Save The Fucking World…Unless You’re Going To Pay Your Superheros

Literally just fucking stop it.

I mean this genuinely, don’t ever say this again. Yes we’re going to save the fucking world, but we shouldn’t have to. If the world were what it should be, LBGTQ2+ people wouldn’t have to have their human rights argued in a court of law.

Minimum wage would be $25.00 an hour minimum, education would be free for everyone and private corporations would be paying ten time higher taxes to pay for it all.

Billionaires, sorry George Soros, wouldn’t fucking exist. This would not be a thing. No one needs to have one hundred and fifty-six billion dollars in assets, that’s more than some countries have access to. No joke.

This shit isn’t fucking difficult, make room for women, make room for people who are marginalized, learn from those who know better than you do by ensuring that education is accessible to everyone.

Make sure that every human on earth is protected from violence, has a place to live, a job to do, and food in their bellies every single day.

It’s not hard to know what we need to do, the problem is that no one wants to do that, no one in power anyways, and they are fighting with everything they have to keep taking from those of us who have so little.

Don’t get me wrong, I plan to be fabulously wealthy one day, but I am going to be one of those wealthy people with a conciseness whose going to give back as I am given to.

I’m going to be one of those famous people that makes sure that I never forget to lift others up when I am able, because no one to this point has done that for me, except my friends at CJSF and a few social media pals.

Things would be different if women ruled the world and men hate that idea, because it means for some of you, that you’d have to get off your fucking ass and actually do something with your life and that scares the shit out of you.

Yeah, I see you, I used to be one of you, I was exactly the same way, except that I have girl parts instead of “boy” parts.

The idea that you might have to contribute some part of yourself to the nation above, your self, is terrifying. I understand this but we as children of the Gods are absolutely called to do the best we can for our neighbors, our cousins if you will.

If you are truly Christian then you will remember the countless times that Jesus fought with the poor and stood against the wealthy. You will remember that Jesus was a teacher, as well as a student who understood that even he didn’t understand everything about God.

He above all else, was a man of faith, who believed simply because he could imagine where all this might be possible. He was a student of time and of space.

In this time and this space, we are about to witness the possible election of a woman who is both Indian and Jamaican to the second highest office in the most powerful country on the planet.

For millions of little girls around the world, this is a momentous event in the history of time and space. It’s the first time that it’s happened in the known human history, for more than a century or two.

Back in the day our ancestors saw the brilliance and need for female leaders from Joan of Arc to Cleopatra. Yet when the shit hit the fan, as it inevitably did, it was women that were sacrificed at the alters of God in his name, in order to allow men to take their place.

This is how it has always been and so no, we’re not going to save the world, we’re going to ensure the safety of Madam Mrs. Kamala Harris, because we know how much of our protection she needs.

That means ensuring that this woman is voted into office, this means ensuring that however you vote, you actually make the choice to vote, because if you choose not to, you are deciding the future of your entire country.

Once every four years in America, you as citizens are asked to put your bias aside and cast your ballot for the betterment of your nation. Never in the history of time, (I’m being arrogant as fuck here), has your vote been more important.

I keep thinking to this author I heard about, Jibri Abdullah, who was tired of seeing children’s books about slavery and took it upon himself to write books about the Kings and Queens of Africa, so that children could see an alternative never the less completely more rounded true history of Black people.

I love that. I don’t know a lot about Jamaica, I know that it was a melting pot of people brought from all across the Caribbean and Africa, before the colonizers sold off the Black ones, in favor of coin over over human decency.

We have come a long way in four hundred years, but we have a long, long way to go before we are even remotely free.

The Pandemic slowed the world down for awhile, and for a short moment in time it stopped viberating the way it is doing so again now. It started to heal a little bit more, babies were born across the globe, and the Earth started to heal just a tiny bit.

Now we’re burning again, we have a pandemic, more wild fires, Donald Trump is messing with the United States Postal Service, Doctors and nurses are legit over worked trying to save the world and completely underpaid and you want to make excuses for why your existence is “worth” one hundred and fifty six billion dollars and mine is not? Naw fuck that noise.

Women – and listen closely when I say this – are going to save the world, but not because of you. Not because of those of you who voted for Trump or stupidly decided not to vote at all. Not because of those of you who called Hillary Clinton a child pedophile.

Not because of those of you calling Michelle Obama angry and jealous, but because and here’s the annoying part, it’s the right fucking thing to do.

We don’t want to die because of the idiots of the planet, and at our core that’s what we’re fighting back as.

Today I saw a tweet that said “I can’t tell the difference between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.” Really bitch? Really? REALLY?!

How did you get a license to drive?! How do you pay your fucking bills? Do you need help? Is someone tweeting for you?

These are the kinds of people saying shit like “Black Women and Women are going to save the world.” Fuck off.

We’re tired. What we should be doing is collectively travelling to beautiful warm places in large groups and celebrating the art of being women, by sitting in the sun while y’all figure out your shit.

But instead we’re too busy saving the world.

Again.

Sending all my love,

Devon J Hall
