The black community needs to stop protecting predators. It’s time to cast a light on those who take advantage of their own community. From Nate Parker to Ian Connor to maybe even your uncle, you continue to make excuses for these men, all the while villainizing black women and children. Stop stepping on the necks of the most vulnerable and unprotected people of our community. If Black Lives Matter only resonates images of unarmed black men, you’re failing black women and you’re failing the cause.
Stand by ALL black women. I’m not just talking about your Ayesha Currys and Michelle Obamas. I’m talking about black trans women, I’m talking about hood girls, I’m talking about me and my sisters.
