Listening to the morning news, I got sick.
Listening to the morning news, I got fatigue.
Listening to the morning news, I cringed.
You see, when I saw African Americans on the news, no matter the position; they put:
Their professionalism first
Their image first
Their timeless first
Their intellect first
Their education first
Their modeling first
Their sincerity first
They had their I’s dotted and T’s crossed every.single.time.I.Saw.Them.
They were my image. They were profession. They were proficient. They were progressive. They were all things PRO!
I heard a white girl say TBD on national news like she was texting and yes, THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO. No, this isn’t progress this is indeed reduction lead by White folks.
