I ain’t really #madatthehashtag

When thinking about my encounters and battles with racists and racism…

“At times, I feel sad, hurt, upset, angry and helpless. At times, I feel like I’m going insane in an effort to maintain my sanity. At times, I feel tired. Sometimes, I then  beat myself up mentally for feeling this way. I’m tired of that too!”

We may not agree on what needs to be done.
We may not know what needs to be done.

I hope we can agree more needs to be done because nothing to date has created meaningful, lasting change.

Somewhere deep down I fear becoming remembered through a hashtag.

But we’ll come back to the hashtag activism later…this recording discusses some of the mental health impacts the tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of murders like Ahmaud Arbery’s I believe has on myself and others.
