This being the last Slam Sunday in our Black History Month saga, I really wanted to end things off with a bang. I wanted to wrap up every important message I have tried to get across, give you all the general message, in five minutes or less. I figured I would have to give you all several videos, each one saying a lil something something to cover the bases. And actually, that’s exactly what I had started out doing. And then I stumbled across this one. Does it mention in direct words ever little point I’ve mentioned in the past month? No. But each individual point by itself doesn’t matter. There’s a common theme to everything that has been written. A general message that I want to send out with this month of posts. There is a general misperception, a general issue, with the perceptions and knowledge about the North American black community, both from within and from the outside looking in. This young woman managed to sum it up so beautifully….man, it was priceless. Seriously. The raw emotion in her voice, in her words, in the tone and delivery and overall message? The angles? This one is definitely a must-watch, and I am honored to use it as my send-off to Black History Month Slam Sundays.
**STANDING OVATION** **CROWD IS GOING WILD**
Couldn’t have said it better myself. In fact, I vow to practice saying things on such a succinct, raw, and deep level…at least from time to time. Come on, I have a blog: Obviously I love the look my my thoughts scrawled allllll over the page.
Thanks for keeping me company throughout this journey guys. Only a few days left til BHM is over. *tear*. Because I had an exam last Friday, I wasn’t able to finish part 2 of the Uncle Tom and Oreo Crackers series that was started on Wednesday. Fear not, it will 100% guaranteed be posted at the regular posting time, this Monday, February 24th at 9am EST.
Have a fantastic Sunday, y’all!
