To my Black Kings;
To my younger brothers, my boyfriend, my friends that feel like brothers, my cousins, my uncles, my grandfather, my future son.
To the ones that I’ve only met in passing.
To the ones I’ve never met at all.
Words can not adequately express the emotions that are running through my body. The disgust, the hatred, the sadness, the pain, the exhaustion, the fear that I feel for you…
I’m scared for you. I’m hurting with you. And I’m outraged.
Aside from that…shit, because of that, I want you to know this:
You are appreciated. You are loved. And you are valued.
Your brown skin is beautiful. You are in my prayers. AND YOUR LIFE MATTERS!
Send this to the Black Kings in your life to remind them of the love you have for them. To remind them that their value does not diminish based on the ignorance of others.
Here are some pictures of some of mine:
Dear Black Kings,
I love you.
Forever and Always,
