Wanting Black people to succeed while not wanting to them to access their rage is not wanting Black people to succeed. Black Rage is a form of Black courage and it is revolutionary. It takes rage and a refusal to continue to be subjugated for people to make change. It is time to get mad.
"We’ve been here before.
Our history is our present. From Ferguson to Baltimore, Los Angeles to Cleveland, Mississippi to South Carolina, if we have learned anything, it is this: There exists in this country those who fear us and those who hate us—who will gladly kill us and our children without a moment's notice. And they are emboldened by a racist judicial system that will tell them they’re justified.
BLACK couRAGE is revolutionary in the face of systemic anti-Black racism. Embrace it. Nurture it.
