Let’s talk racial trauma shall we? Racism is systemic. It seeps into everything, especially when you are a Black woman in a world where people are trying to tell you how to be and how to act.
In a world where as a Black woman it already feels like you don’t matter, work isn’t a place where you should also feel that way.
I see my brothers as loving, gentle, nerdy, musical geniuses. To the world, they’re just black men, a potential threat. Our skin is seen as a threat. And yet we operate in the world with a welcoming smile.
