We'll be popping while running like only Soweezy knows how too.
We'll paint the streets purple. What a befitting colour in support of 16 days of activism. It reminds me if the movie and book "The Color Purple". The amount of abuse that Celie survived over a period of 40 years, from her abusive father who marries her off to an equally abusive Albert Johnson. To this day our sisters, mothers, daughters, nieces, grannies, aunts are still abused/dies at the hands of our male counterparts, that are strangers and not so strangers.
Will it ever be Uhuru? Just as Celie is yearning to be reunited with her sister in Africa, so do we yearn to have a sister to confide in. Be that sister to another queen and fix her crown. It starts with me! I will be wearing my purple t-shirt.
You don't have a purple tshirt you say? You may wear red or blue, because mixing those 2 colors, you get purple.
Prince wrote "Purple Rain" and the symbolism of the lyrics are astounding, "When there's blood in the sky" - red and blue = purple. A deep longing of something, a longing for any kind of abuse to stop, a deep longing to get justice, a deep longing for appreciation, A DEEP LONGING TO RUN IN THE STREETS AND NOT BE RIDICULED,
