If looks could kill…

When Black women speak or even move — we’re seen as “heated” because the heat is always on us.

We just can’t win.

Sandra Bland is a glaring example.

It’s also vital to point out how the media and those who call it home — work overtime to perpetuate and spread malice against Black women who are just as fragile and soft as their White counterparts — but somehow we are consistently treated with necessary roughness.
