I wrote this post on August 4, but I fixed it (kinda) last night.
I’m scrolling through Instagram, on the discover page, and I see facts about how studies show that black people are scientifically better than white people at this or that, or that they are superior. When I look at those post, it doesn’t make me feel better about being a young black lady, it makes me feel bad. I don’t want to be better than a certain race or gender, I don’t want to be more superior than a certain race or gender.
I know society sees the black race as inferior, but as long as we know we aren’t there is no need to find validation that we are not.
I just want to be good enough and I think that’s all that matters.
I know I’m good enough. I’m good enough for my friends, for my family. Just not enough for society.(#effsociety)
I understand why they put up those posts, but they need to stop. Let’s continue fighting for equal rights instead of putting other races down.
