White Women and Elizabeth Warren.

Maybe it’s time to serious move away from that term and chose one of our own be it Womanism or something else. White women are not loyal to each other, and they most certainly aren’t loyal to women of color. Given the state of this country one would hope that white women have learned their lesson. But then again we know better, and Elizabeth Warren just has to wait to find out what will happen next, but it’s obvious her plan to be president for now is over.

A War America’s Never Seen.

This is not a call to live in fear. It’s a call to learn more about this situation without cracking a joke. Don’t just blow it off as we’ve been at war in the Middle East for what feels like forever. Take the time to learn about our foreign affairs. You are a citizen and citizenship has responsibilities…being informed should be among them. Know that our soldiers will be put in harm’s way…they are someone’s children, spouse, parent, sibling, and friend…don’t take the threat to their life as a joke. There is a war American has never seen…and I pray she never does.

I Will Teach My Kids About Dr. King.

I need my children to know standing up for what you believe in can be dangerous, but not having any dignity is worse. I need them to acknowledge the fight in Dr King, and the principle. School could have talked more about principle and could have used his commemoration to discuss taking a stance for what’s right. However, in a school with a majority of white students and faculty that might be uncomfortable because this discussion means acknowledging black people have been, and are, harmed by white people in this country. I never want my children to be delusional about words like unity and equality. It was spoken on as if these are things that have been accomplished in this country, and we know better. I will own my children education about blackness, and black leadership for their sake…and mine.

This Administration Can’t Use Dr. King.

They wouldn’t understand what it means to commemorate the life of someone who was selfless to the cause of seeing justice in this country. This administration has not heart…and the soul of it is foul. America has to open its eyes completely to what we’ve always been…because it has given birth to where we are right now. Maybe that is something we should contemplate as we think on the life and legacy of Dr. King.

Use the Front Door.

Yes, black people should call the police if they see too much suspicious behavior in the streets and stay inside. Well, the one neighbor that answered the door was assaulted and robbed. The situation was so upsetting as I knew the neighbor very well and they were severely hurt. This began my stance of use the front door. If I can’t see, I’m not opening my door. I realized nowhere is so safe that I can let my guard down. Given the season, and just in general, have folks come to your front door. Please do all that you can to stay vigilant and safe. The world needs your light.

Get Involved in the Process.

Voting is very important, but we need to put the same push behind getting involved on various levels as we do going to the polls. We know what our people, and community need. Black women have shown that they are a force for change, and we must get that done in elected positions if we want to see more change happen at a faster more efficient pace.

Meghan McCain Reminds Me of the Privilege of White Women.

We have to deal with Meghan McCain on our TV because she’s an entitled white girl that is standing on her dad’s legacy and some sort of validation of her voice not realizing she needs a voice of her own. Until she figures out how to have an adult conversation without throwing her privilege, I think she should refrain from speaking…though we know that’s not happening. The thing is Meghan McCain is the kind of political voice that reminds me a white woman is not my ally, and in many instances we could never explain to her why she’s a part of the political problem.

It’s Not Your Job To Educate White People About Race – Easy Responses.

Tweet (ThySistas.com) If you’re black and you spend any amount of time around white people, whether in your friendship/social circle, at church, or even at work, you’ve probably been asked to explain or clarify things to them at some point. You might not think much of this, and if you want to give them your […]

Can I trust Women With My Political Views.

Black women must consider the idea that we can trust each other with our political positions, and concerns. We have great voting power, and instead of trying to appeal to white women that our concerns are just as important as them, and in some cases the urgency is greater. We must assume that we can not trust white women, as a whole, to stand with us as we fight the establishment. In many ways they are not out ally, politics is not excluded.

Who’s canceled next.

So why? Why do we have so many attempts and campaigns to cancel people for how their choices? How do we know what should really be boycotted and what is just something is different from how we believe?  Unfortunately, the answer to these questions is held back by the fact that we as a society do not have a set list or guidelines of what is considered morally correct anymore. Yes, we are a country of beautiful people that are different shapes, sizes, and beliefs.  As those differences infiltrate our culture, it dilutes what is considered to be the American Idea of what is considered correct or standard.  Until we get back to a point of listening to each other and developing what our code of ethics and morals are for all, no one has the right and reason to cancel anything.
