Description For Black Womxn
The stress of racism and sexism affects us like no other being on this planet. Our bodies are holding historic trauma so deep that our genes are weathering at a rate much faster than our White counterparts. So when we go to bring life into this world, its like our bodies are 10 years older than we actually are. And on top of that, the health disparities for pregnant Black womxn have us dying at a rate 3 times higher because these racist doctors simply don’t believe us. And when we do have a successful birth, we birth out this historical trauma and pass it on to the next generation. The trauma of rape, abuse, and mistreatment. Our experiences aren’t forgotten– although they’d like us to think it is– they live in our bones. I can feel it, and I know you feel it too.
Description For ‘Eerbody Else
Historical trauma lives in us from this world you created for us. And we birth this hereditary disease, plaguing our young with the history of forgottenness, loneliness, and abuse. We never chose this, and you’ve yet to admit your wrong doings and repair this historical harm. We never get a chance to heal from this trauma. Everyday that goes by without reparations is salt in the wound. You don’t care, because it doesn’t affect you. You don’t have to be worried that when you go to the hospital to birth a child into this world that you’re more likely to die because White doctors don’t believe Black womxn. So keep on doing nothing, yours is the hand pulling the pin.
