The country is currently undergoing civil unrest, as is long overdue, concerning the atrocities against Black lives. Unarmed Black men being murdered by poilice, White women weaponizing Black men, a lynching style murder of a Black man. All of this has been occurring since the inception of this country...only now there is recorded video evidence of it. This country was built on a foundation of racism that has sustained over the centuries and shows itself in every aspect of our society; from the medical, educational and judicial systems, neighborhood redlining, job markets....the list goes on. Some of these racist acts are overt, but many are covert and unrecognized by non-Black people. I strongly suggest doing your own research to learn about systemic racism, institutional racism and implicit bias. Unlearn what this society has taught you about race.

According to Black Women’s Blueprint, “The Truth Commission on Black Women and Sexual Violence” 2012, 40-60% of Black women report subjection to sexual coercion by 18 years old. (See the link for more facts.) A history of childhood sexual abuse can be a catalyst for many adult ailments.
According to RAINN, every 98 seconds a person is sexually assaulted. Those traumatized by sexual assault can develop chronic pain issues as well as the many other issues that may afflict a survivor.
