The recent incident that occured in McKinney, Texas with the Black youth at a neighborhood pool party left me completely numb an outraged after seeing the video. Witnessing how a white male police officer responded to those children and manhandled a 15 year old Black girl was so upsetting. His actions were deplorable an unacceptable!
To angered to write about it at the time, I came across this article today which is articulated so well and spoke to my heart, I had to share. This author expressed my feelings, please read, share and comment.
Our beautiful young Goddesses are our future, and it is up to us to nurture and equip them with the proper tools needed to transition into womanhood. We must continue to take interest in and uplift our little Sistas, instilling in them a sense of pride and self-worth.
Here at #BlackWomenStandUp we will be working with our young Goddesses in a variety of ways, and we are counting on OUR #BWSU Community to do the same.
