3 Men

1. Accused of sexual assault

2. Accused of sexual assault

3. Accused of sexual assault

1 and 2 are successful.

3 is successful, but his reputation went down hill.

1 and 2 are still standing on a pedestal.

3 was crucified.

Two are white, one is black. Two were born into privilege. One had to earn it.

1 and 2 are still winning.

3 is getting what all three deserve.

Sooooooo…….yeah

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.

And that’s that.

I’m not a feminist.

I’m just a young woman who does what I want in the world.

I’m a young woman who is ambitious.

I am a young woman who has freedom.

I am a strong young woman 

I am a woman.

Marilyn Monroe once said, “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” 

Interesting.
