I believe I can sound the alarm for the younger generation of black women. So they don't end up like our mothers...
I want the younger generation of black women to be free from race woman duties so that they can create their own lives. Black women do all the fighting, organizing, rallying and give-a-damning in the Black community. Anytime an injustice befalls a black male, it is BLACK WOMEN running to the rescue to protest and speak out against the injustice. When something befalls our sisters, Marissa Alexander comes to mind, mum's the word. The brothers do NOT organize, resist, protest nor stand with us. They sit idly by, they blame us, they centralize themselves and talk over our issues. In threads on facebook, I have witnessed our black men derail, intentionally, even women celebrating what we are capable of by superimposing that celebration of our wonder is somehow saying they ain't shit...
With freedom from identification with, specifically and exclusively, black male issues, young black girls are able and available to construct their lives and work towards their own, specific and exclusive, issues and interests. Many things occur, in patriarchy, with the goal of impeding the upward mobility of females. Double this in and among black girls.
The impregnation, for example, of young girls is the assurance they end up like our mothers. The reason this is a bad thing, is that upward mobility for black women is vitally important to the quality of life we live. We don't live a racially privileged existence like our non-black female counterparts do. Every day we go out into the world in black skin and female flesh... black skin is marginalized and denigrated female flesh is preyed upon and not honored as HUMAN.
One way I do this "sounding the alarm" is pointing out natural and wild contraceptives. Because a baby shouldn't ruin your life. And your sexuality shouldn't be held hostage on account of males and their sperm. Also, hormonal contraceptives are poison for the female body. Other ways include sounding the alarm to the mothers, and those on their way to becoming a mother. I also am actively building community with women and encouraging community. The Nuclear family is mostly a nail in the coffin for women of all cultures... we worked better with a village to support our mothering. We worked better in a NATION that supports mothering. All of this is by design. Patri society thrives on the disunity of women, women enable this by identification with what is NOT exclusively female centered.
I am going to make this world a better place however i can for young black girls. And i realize that the greatest obstacle to their freedom, the slave master in their lives, is their mama. Its sad. But women are the gatekeepers. That doesn't go away just because she forgot or isn't acting right. We are the gatekeepers... we grant and deny access DAILY as the Divine Creatrix of the Yoniverse/Universe/Omniverse. It is our job and duty to LOVE our daughters/dawtas not simply just raise them to take on our responsibilities or to help us in our ADULT responsibilities. Are you a mama? Do you have more than one child? Guess what? IT IS NOT YOUR DAUGHTER'S JOB to aid you in your mothering duty and responsibility. Great lessons lie in daughters and mothers working together as well as great harms. We are teaching our daughters that this is the way... children learn from what they see, NOT what they are told. We are all old enough, wise enough and empowered enough to know this and correct the behaviors. We must stop grooming our daughters to accept life as it is! We have to, starting within ourselves, begin viewing our lifes as something we CREATE! We, as women, are GOD! God is the one who gives life, no one on this planet is capable of doing that, except the Female/Feminine. In every Kingdom and pantheon it is the FEMALE who is the giver of life and abundance. We came that we might have LIFE and have it more abundantly.
It is important that we show ourselves and thus our daughters the importance of our Creation ability and the vitality it holds in our lives. We are Divine Weavers of our own destiny. This cannot be ignored any longer! We must activate within our own Daughter/Dawta self the Chryst Consciousness. When Black women honor their daughter self, they are capable of honoring their daughters, period.
Black girls aren't often permitted to be children, or to just be organically female period. We are hyper-sexualized before we can walk... and presented to the globe as hyper-sexual freaks who are irresponsible with our creator power. The blame ALWAYS falls to women... men are NEVER held accountable, on a grand scale or in a way that idk MATTERS, for what befalls women. As such, we must do better for our cohort.
Most teen pregnancies... the fathers are over 20. That means that black girls are NOT hot in the ass... but are the victims of predatory black males and black females who could careless what the brothers, fathers, uncles, cousins in the community do to the dawtas. Its painful and it must end.
No nation can rise higher than it's women. Min Farrakhan
So its time to UPLIFT the Black Womb and HONOR her Divinity and Creatrix power and ability, NOT colonize, diminish, deny, and abuse it the way our cult-u-re has historically permitted things to go down. We must divest from all thought, groups, religious practices that enslave the Black woman and tell her she is anything less than God. We are the Creators of the Global cultures and languages. We are Divine Creatrix in motion and being. <3 Namaste
