Representation matters! Diversity matters!
Black people but specifically black women bring a level of common sense to any situation. Experiences such as misogynoir, racism, and suppression has taught us to learn work arounds. We’ve leaned into that experience and this has helped us to develop critical thinking skills.
Learning to pivot, learning to "how to" without traditional support, shows the resilience of a people. Instead of resentment it should invoke an admiration. Or at least a curiosity.
Embrace the differences, inhale the knowledge, but don’t suppress the growth. Exchange helps to foster change!
