Why I Am Not Posting More About Current Events

Hi all. There are a few things that are on my mind that I want to talk about and share, but I wanted to let y’all know something first.
I am not posting more about the protests, the rebellions, or anything about George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, or any other of the souls we lost to racism out of respect.

I stand with my black friends and family. I am an ally of POC. And out of respect, I’m not going to try to get my site trending by using the hashtags that aren’t mine to use. (Yes I used hashtag George Floyd on the My Heart Feels Heavy poem, and honestly that was in poor taste. I’m removing that tag once I publish this post). And you’ll notice that I’m not using any tags on this post either.

Let’s be honest – it does not matter what I have to say. I already treat everyone equally. No one is better than me and no one is lesser than me. I understand that all of our souls are connected and we are one. I have friends from all different backgrounds. I treat everyone with respect, and I do not judge people based on superficial things. It is not my place to clog up the important tags. And I will raise my children, should I be blessed enough to have them when I’m ready, to do the same. I have been saying silent because I don’t want my words to get in the way of someone finding something written by POC.

The events that are transpiring right now are not a #trend. This is not the time for me to get more traffic to my page. My site does not need to be seen right now. However, if a reader (that’s you!) wants to know why they haven’t seen anything from me about this other than my poem, and they’re looking through my stuff, this is why.

I see you, POC. I stand with you. I am sorry we are fighting against the same societal injustices as our grandparents were, but this time, these issues end NOW. ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
