Corona Chronicle 5-Black Folks Fighting to Stay Alive
The virus of attempting to hide our Blackness so that we would be protected has infected and affected the Black community for generations, but it hasn’t protected us as we see in this moment where racial profiling is still killing us. COVID-19 complications are killing us. Running, driving, and walking while Black is killing us. Self-hatred and lack of compassion for other Black people is killing us. So much so that the NAACP has launched the #WeAreDoneDying campaign. Unfortunately, unless Black people truly stand up and fight together in unity no matter our age, geographically location, or financial stand in global society to protect the lives of ALL Black people from these continued lynchings and the verbal and written lynchings that we do to one another in order to advance ourselves, that campaign will only be a hashtag in the digital world while more Black death comes in the real world.
