The Everyday Struggle

I have been feeling some kind of way lately. I typically never let race affect me…I notice it, it’s so blatant sometimes because of language, personality and my history but lately it’s been showing it’s head in some ways that  I don’t particularly like.  I am a beautiful intelligent woman and have been in situation as of late where my opinion is not heard or I believed valued over my counter parts of a lighter persuasion. I am not sure the person(s) who do this even know they are doing it. I think it is so automatic, they can’t help but to maybe feel more comfortable or at ease listening to or talking to someone like them.

At first I tried not to link it to race but what else could it be? I have proven myself to be a reliable, dependable source also. I hate to think like this…I hate to also know, that it is true. I am very intuitive and sometimes too much so. I can read peoples actions, their body movements…you know I was reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell a few years ago and he stated that Black Women are almost surely to get hustled when buying a car. I know this is true cause this has been my experience several times. Of course I learned from those experiences but how unfortunate we still live in a day and age where race supersedes quality - quality of abilities, financial standing, personal achievements…quality of the person. 

We are all such beautiful people, I hope we can move past such nonsense.  We have come along way but should I be grateful that we are not living in segregation, or even slavery…no I am shameful that it even existed.

So I was looking for audio books on youtube and have been exploring some of the classics. Well I looked at “The Great Gatsby” and lo and behold  there is a movie coming out! I love this Lana Del Rey, I know I am probably late but oh her voice is unique. Florence and the Machine also has a new song Over the Love of You and her voice is just majestic. Can’t wait to see the movie and listen to the full songs!
