We are dying and no one is talking about it
As i stated on my first post tittled Adventures into life, social issues was just one of the items I addressed. As a black female in my twenties, HIV/AIDS accounts for a major fraction of black women between the ages of 25 and 34 dying and living with the disease. The number of African American female casuelties infuriates me. I have more questions than complaints like who should we balme?, how come no one is talking and when will the abuse and oppression end for us. From being stripped of our dignity while standing on auctionig blocks to being objectified on rap videos;its a never ending grief from a culture and society that celebrates misogyny.
