"You is kind. You is smart. You is important"

When I view movie dramas like "The Help" or historical footage that are used to show the past that this nation has doled out to Black people - I chose to look at the present day and how much unmitigated hatred that Black people do not have to deal with.

Some others choose to note how this period of oppression amounts to the theft of wealth and opportunity for Black people.

I saw:

  • Black woman providing child care and house cleaning to their oppressors - doing what was necessary to ultimately feed their own family
  • Black men actively working to provide for their families
