That’s very damaging and not progressive to our community. When we silence black women and girls, it often brings upon mental distress because of built up emotions. It’s detrimental to their health and sanity to continue to tell them to get over it. If you genuinely care about black women and girls, you’d sit and listen to their pain and try to help them heal.-FedUpBlackWoman, Tumblr
Please don’t tear black women down, who speak about their experiences.
