My dear beautiful friends and all the friends I do not know

Every Muslim, African American, Native American, people of the LGBTQ community, each culture, woman, minority, child. Every single one of you:

This is…a sad day in history. We are all asking why, how, and what next? Unfortunately only one of those questions matters now. What next? We are feeling defeated, hopeless, discouraged, and disappointed. Yet we must remember over half of America voted against this. The younger generations voted against this.

My friends, this means there is hope. There is room, determination, and potential for change. We cannot bow our heads. We cannot raise our fists in hatred. No. We must raise our voices, open our arms, support every single amazing person hurt by these events. We cannot. Cannot. Let hatred win.

As a bi woman, I feel so violated. I went to my yoga mat, spilling my heart for our future, spent a sleepless night riddled with anxiety, waves of nausea and dizziness, I can’t eat. I know so many of us feel this today.

There is much to be done. Now is the time to break down barriers in our communities and do as much as possible to let our people know they are supported and will be fought for, peacefully. Shout your love until it echoes across this pained world.

I am here for you. I open my heart, my arms, my home to you. I love each and every one of you.

Have courage and be kind.

Namaste

People need to stop using the term "African culture" you make Africa seem like a monolith when you say it. If you don't know the name of the culture you're refering to then you shouldn't really be speaking about it. Also stop using phrases like "African version of..."cut that shit out it's irritating when people don't know anything about our cultures but they keep talking as if they do. There's no such thing as "African bindis" because not all forhead adornments are called bindis learn the proper names or shut up. There is also no such thing as "African yoga" I'll say it again learn the proper names or shut up. "African mythology" "African tribal marks" "African drums" the list is endless. If you can't stop treating Africa like a monolithic society then keep it out of your mouths.
