Diva Talks Culture: ....to be Black in America
When your skin color is looked at as a weapon. When your gender combined with your dark skin makes you "look like a bad dude." When what should have been help arrived only to murder you. When lies, cover ups, and police murdering the black civilians they were sworn to protect become the norm. When speaking up warrants hatred and retaliation because your voice disturbs the status quo. When unarmed victims are blamed for their own deaths....
is to be black in America.
Rest in power Terence Crutcher and the hundreds of black men and women who never made it home due to police violence.
