Speak Up and Listen

This video is now going on a couple of years old but so many still don’t get the message, and it’s a powerful one. ¬†Full loaded with the reality of the day-to-day existence that many of us live in, it is a force to be reckoned with.

If you are one of those who do not recognize what is culturally known as “privilege”, ask yourself what this same exact message would look like with a white man and a black woman at the mic.

Denial of these issues doesn’t make them go away, it makes them seemingly invisible yes, but it makes things worse exponentially as it continues to escalate and choke out light and life under the surface where no one can see it back building until it erupts.
