You plant a seed in the earth & provide a good environment for it to grow. Men plant their seed in the woman & have to create a good environment for it to grow. It’s the same concept.
I always believe that the thing the world hates and oppresses the most is what we need to look to for hope. You see, when a bully bullies, there’s something they are trying to suppress in that person, they’re jealous so they bully to make the victim feel bad, because the bully feels less than. On a macro level, that can be said about Black people, the bullies only bully us because for hundreds of years consistently we’ve had what they needed. Whether resources, ideas, or talent. Imagine if every Black person was to go back to Africa today, there would be no sports culture, no hip hop culture, no fashion culture; we make everything hot! Also there are many government sectors that benefit from the oppression of Black people.
Anyway, my mind works deep. I thought, if white men have positioned themselves as the symbol of authority, and the most mistreated person in the world is the Black woman, then there must be something that they are trying to hide about the Black woman. We already know as I’ve told you that in precolonial Africa, the woman was seen as closer to God for our ability to give birth. Giving birth is key to building communities since the people have to come from somewhere. So back to the first paragraph, the conditions for Black women giving birth are the worst among any race, and the medical system is purposely creating unhealthy environments for Black women to try to prohibit us from giving birth. This is not a class issue, Beyoncé and Serena Williams both stated how their concerns were ignored by doctors. Black women and children are 4-11x more than likely to be put in conditions to die during childbirth above any other race. When I think of this, I think, the Black woman is the direct enemy of white men, and they attack us because they know that strong communities are built when the women are taken care of. They not only mistreat us medically, they work over a lifetime to cause us health and mental issues. They created these useless standards for femininity and womanhood, – which, from birth, many Black girls are made to feel less than beautiful; we’ve been overworked more than any race or gender (70%), we’ve been mocked for our own standards of beauty- minimized then copied by other women; we’ve been sexually violated by white men the most – on and off the continent, and I am convinced that their purpose is to try to eliminate the Black race through the mistreatment of Black women. The United Nations has all these “family” planning initiatives in Africa to try to reduce the amount of women having children, listen, Black woman are forever, we are not going anywhere.
The early Roman church recognized the mother of God as a Black woman, there is something about us that is so highly imitated across every race in the world. Gay men have created a culture based on the actions and vernacular of Black women. celebrities have all gotten big butts to imitate Black women. Black women have been used to write many hit songs sung by non-Black people. The list goes on and on, the only answer is, life comes from us, ALL life.
Life began with Black women on mama Africa. Even the earth is referred to as Mother Earth, and Africa as Mama Africa. Any other continent referred to as mama or mother? Black women have a command that no other woman has, even in oppression, we are still solid. Many African women led people to freedom – Aba Women’s riot, Harriet Tubman, etc., you know that it is, but history gives more credit to men. Oh don’t get me wrong, Black women and Black men need each other. Did you know at one point in America it was illegal for Black women and men to marry each other? Why? Because white men needed easier access to terrorize Black women without our husbands trying to defend us. This wasn’t that long ago people, some of those white lawmakers are still alive, and if not their children are and hold the same ideas. I told you, they have directly tried to attack us for years. I understand the attacks against the Black community as a whole, but understand, women have the womb, there is a direct attack on our womb.
So, mama Africa, Mother Earth, the incomparable Black woman; today I want you to walk with your head high and your back straight. Demand respect everywhere you go, do not accept less than what you deserve, love yourself in all forms, and recognize your superpower. The world will try to take from you to leave you with nothing, but preserve your resources, you are what the world needs, but we don’t owe it to anybody. Let them earn it, let them recognize and honor the Goddess in us. We are the original Mother Earth, we have the power to use our words to force evil out and command the environments around us. Any seed planter in us must provide the greatest environment for us to grow. Amen.
