theedgeofspirit:

There was a time when your body was honored as the Source of life. Your feminine sexuality was so potent that the ancient Tantric masters believed your body held the key to enlightenment. Your yoni, gateway to the inner chamber of treasures, was considered so sacred that you let no one enter this space who did not know how to properly behave in a place of worship.

“Who taught you to hate the color of your skin? Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair? Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose & the shape of your lips? Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet? Who taught you to hate your own kind? Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to? So much so that you don’t want to be around each other? … you should ask yourself who taught you to hate being what God made you.”

Over the weekend, I took my daughter to an exhibit on segregation. I observed her. I observed her emotions and she had so many questions and I’m still searching for answers…. I wanted her to touch and see the way of life for many of our parents and grandparents. Some of us may have even experienced it ourselves..
Then, there’s a different type of conversation one must have with our black children.. The robes and signs may not be visible but the tension can still be felt. Therefore, the fight must continue.
