Telling black people that they are oppressed, makes them more oppressed. constantly repeating that black people are oppressed, affirms the thought the same way repeating positive affirmations bring thoughts into existence. So what are black people to do about injustices? Since in actuality black people are oppressed! Simple. Black people need to understand that they are not oppressed. Huh? They need to know that although there are some people who would do anything to silence them; there is nothing that those people can do to break their spirit, to stop them from dreaming and loving... Truly, truly loving. There is nothing that anyone can do to cause them to hate themselves. Black empowerment doesn't need more black women on the cover of vogue. In the end every black person needs to unchain themselves from mental Slavery and be free, from the whims, expectations and hate of others. We create social change by changing ourselves. By refusing to adhere to stupid standards like the inability to wear certain clothes, own businesses, sport natural hair, be proud of our culture, talk a certain way, etc. We create the change we desire. We quite literally force ourselves into a powerful position by remembering that no one can truly destroy us. But it all starts with a thought. One has to believe in oneself and believe that no one can oppress you, no matter how hard they try. No one can ever enslave you, no matter how many chains and whips they utilize to attempt to break your back.
