I honor you, Sister @shineblackhawk - I thank You and your ancestors, for your music, medicine, your wisdom; I thank you for allowing me and mine to share your land. I'm so broken at what my people have done, and I lift you up and will teach my children and my children's children how to respect and honor you. "Cycles " ~Necessary endings for new beginnings~
For #womenshistorymonth I want to celebrate amazing Black Trans Women. Meet Mary Jones! She was a sex-worker who was known to steal her clients' (white men) wallets after she had sex with them. Jones didn't have time to wait for #reparations. In 1836, she spent 5 years in prison when someone did turn her in for grand larceny. Once she got out, she spent another 5 months in prison again for living in her truth as a trans woman when she was arrested for "dressing as a woman".
Jones, you never stole.
dignity. We celebrate
May we too remember
our worth extends beyond
what's in their wallets.
According to the U.S. census there’s 42 million blacks/ African Americans in the United States. If they divided the #reparations equally each black person would get a little over $300,000!!! Let’s keep the politicians focused on considering there’s reparations.
