Here are my favorite hashtags of last year, and words that have affected me since I was born.
I know they are relevant right now because I have pissed people the fuck off with these topics, some of whom are my best friends.
I will spend all year continuing to do my research on these topics and fighting with friends and strangers until we at least agree to disagree and always end it with a handshake or hug (just like in jiu-jitsu).
The best advice I’ve gathered for you, is, when a woman, especially a woman of color is speaking, or has something to say, YOU LISTEN. You shut your big mouth, and you open your ears, brain, and heart.
It’s my turn to speak. Let me have the mic, and hear me out.
