  1. True. Talking sharply is a strong suit in our culture, but a lot of it is uncontrolled rage. A couple of months ago, I saw a woman talking “strong” to an approximately 18-month old. When is this going to stop? I was intimidated by the way she was talking to the toddler and I am an adult. When is this going to stop? When are we going to recognize this for what it is? abuse and bullying. Too many people walking around in pain because of emotional abuse.

  2. It is often said hurting people hurt other people. The African American, and the African in general has been hurt by centuries of abuse…slavery, you name it…We can give only what is in us.

    Thank you for this post. We must continue speaking out for things to change.
