[TRIGGER WARNING: conversation about gun violence, child’s death] This is very difficult but an important reality to embrace. This is REAL. Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old girl from Chicago was recently killed due to the gun violence in Chicago. She participated in President Obama’s Inauguration and honestly, only because she did is why I think the mainstream news is mentioning her by name. News out of Chicago is usually followed by nameless body counts. But watch this mother…look at her pain. She feels. The lie that Black women feel nothing and revel on being “strong” and enduring abuse is a fucking LIE meant to dehumanize us. LOOK AT HER. SEE HER. She will never see her child again.
