I love being Black. There’s just this pride that comes with it, one that I can’t quite describe. I love seeing my people achieve greatness, excellence, and succeed. We wear our color like armor, capable of warding off any and all negativity, malice, or bad vibes. We are resilient, we persevere, we adapt and overcome. We have been kidnapped, bought, sold, stripped of everything we owned; yet we’re still here, we’re still standing strong. We’re not going anywhere, so get used to us.
