What does it mean to love Black Men who wear the wounds of White Supremacy, Slavery, Bigotry &/or racism (pick your poison) like emotional armor?
As we watch Black Men be hunted, hung, & murdered, trauma keeps pimp slapping us. Especially when you try to help a Black Man & he turns YOU into the enemy.
Or the verbal punching bag.
Or the emotional whipping post.
How do you love him without fear of being attacked?
My point is this: domestic violence has escalated since quarantine and White Supremacy has shown its ass. I’m NOT willing to sit back & allow White people trash to take MORE Black Men from me, because they don’t even know they are reacting to historical wounds. Black Men think they are reacting to Black Women – AND we think they are too!
But what if they’re not?
What if they are in a dance with White Supremacy that defines their masculinity?
I don’t know, but it’s worth exploring.
