Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by, and leave a comment below with your thoughts on this topic. I wrote an article about three years ago relating to the extreme disparities of violence and poor healthcare surrounding “black” women in the United States to bring awareness to these specific areas. You can read the original article here.
In 2018, I wanted to highlight that “black” women and girls were Lost Without Protection- In Search for Connection to argue major points like,
➠“Black” women and girls only make-up 13% of the United States population, but comprises about half of female homicide victims.
➠Homicides is one of the largest violent disparities towards “black” women in the U.S.
➠“Black” women experience rape and other forms of sexual or physical violence at higher rates in comaprison to all other ethnicities in the U.S.
➠The majority of “black” women in the U.S were sexually abused as children- addressed later in life.
➠“Black” women suffer from a form of PTSD encoded gene- leading to high infant mortality rates.
I decided to take a glance back to see where my mindset was at with these issues and then analyze the relevance for the progression of myself and others to move forward. I can say that I am still awfully disturbed by the disparities of “black” women and girls today in comparison to all other ethnicities in the United States. While I also have new insights on the topic, I was also able to refocus my thoughts with a new lens based on other information similar to forward-thinking "black" women.
I questioned whether or not if the acts of violence towards “black” men due to the system of racism left “black” women lost without protection. I debated with myself by taking a look at my own experiences in search of truth. There has been a series of life experiences to become awakened to this information with a different outlook from my original thoughts only three years ago.
These are the questions that I ask myself today-
Can systems be broken such as racism?
Should “black” women date outside of her race/class?
What are your thoughts?
In the blogs up ahead, we’ll take a look at each condition affecting “black” women in the United States today in 2021: High Infant Death Rates, Violence against “black” women, and Sexual Abuse Rates for “black” women and girls at disproportionate rates.
