Black Was But Now Is…

In My Opinion

Black and white aren’t true colors. It seems since the beginning of time these two shades of people have been fighting to be true colors. The word “black” has been slandered. This word has been pulled by its ear and tossed into piles of negativity and a trail was left on its way out. Now we are left to clean up the footsteps in hopes to not erase the past, but show everyone where we came from, who we were, and how we’ve changed with no intentions of going back. We need to stand up and reform the agreement embedded in the social construction of the word “black”. Black is variation. Black is power. Black is change. Black is positive. Black is fun. Black is educated. Black is motivated. Black is inspired. Black is you. Black is me.
