An emotional call to taking an active stand in everything you do.
From its beginnings, America has misinformed her POC. They denied us life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and made sure that integration would be what we were striving for. The legality of the US Constitution in 2017, still exclude the POC.
From its beginnings, America through intentional education malpractice and curriculum discrimination drained us of our creativity and innovation.
From its beginnings, America zoned AND roped off areas for BLACK AND BROWN LIVES and assured us that we should be clustered in poverty, inferiority, and in chemically hazardous communities of which our nothingness would be internalized.
From its beginnings, BLACK FOLK HAVE BEEN BAAAAD!
