The internet is helluva place.
People are constantly debating about how much more right they are than everyone else at any given time. I always feel weird about facebook shares like the one that went viral because in my mind it’s just me speaking common sense.
Then you realize that not everyone measures their common sense with the same ruler. You also realize that perhaps you have a voice for people that can’t speak up or won’t. A repost or like could be their way of showing support if they are at a conservative job or their pages are overrun by over zealous family members.
You never know. 22,000 Likes and almost 4,ooo shares can’t be wrong.
So, I speak up more about topics of Black pride, LGBTQ issues, mental health, self- care and anything else that’s important to me. And when you get a chance to take the conversation off of facebook to a national news outlet like the Huffington Post, you do just that. Writer, Shanita Hubbard asked me some follow up questions that allowed me to delve deeper into racism, feminism, activism and more in the aftermath of Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance.
Other news this week in #peakBlackness, Kendrick Lamar’s performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards solidified this as the best Black History Month that ever existed. To which I shared on facebook:
James Brown , Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, Public Enemy, and to all my artists friends using their platforms to shake up the the status quo.
I don’t care what led you to do it.
I care that you did something at all.
