For those whom the Inauguration of Kamala Harris means the most to and the long wait is final over. Congratulation. You long deserved it. There would be no America were not for the labor of black women.
I can imagine the enslaved woman cleaning the room and bringing Jefferson his food as he wrote the Declaration of Independence envisionized that some day that a woman who looked like herself wouldn’t be scrubbing and cleaning but leading the nation.
I can imagine this is the day that Revolutionary War women soldiers like Sally St. Claire fought and died for.
I can imagine this is what Harriet Tubman was looking at when it’s said she would appear in deep thoughts at times.
Kamala Harris changed the face of what power looks like.
And to those who aren’t happy about it….
Grow up and deal with it. Everything isn’t always about you and what you want. Have it ever occurred to you that you are a racist narcissistic suffering from an inferior complex ego which is why you feels everything must be about what you find acceptable in order to enjoy it. Or anything for that matter? I pity you. You have no ideal of the full range of humanity’s diversity you are missing out on.
The reason I dedicated this post strictly to Black women and no one else is because Black women have been excluded from everything except backbreaking hard labor in this country since the 1500’s. They deserve their moment to shine.
My mother used to say; If you have to ask or wait for people’s permission to be happy about anything that’s never going to happen. Some people can’t be happy about any thing if isn’t about them.
