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.

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.

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.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The agribusiness sector has been intertwined with the fortunes of rural America for some time, since even before the word was coined in 1957, and it dominates discussions of the national economy to this day.

The Overgeneralization Defect.

We are also not being rational. Rationality is necessary in this day and age of social media and information at our fingertips. Once you deal with your emotions of the horrible act that has happened in whatever situation you are in,  remember that one does not represent everyone. There are still some people in this world that have great intentions, and they need your understanding in order to make a difference in this world.

They also practiced empathy toward each other.  To this day, I am still friends with these people.  These people also give me hope that one day the hardest black conversation can happen without judgement and without fear.

Desensitized Until Forced to Feel.

Even if it’s your neighbor, thought it’s not a relative, it’s too close to home. In this space you hope others in this country will stand with you in the pain that has darkened your doorstep. This is in part why we can’t allow the numbness to take over. In that space the evil leading us wins, and we continue to lose members of a much larger community…that of humanity.
