Okay, we had to fight off tears on this one. Many of you black women know what it like to grow up without your father. A little girl says goodbye to her father who was shot by a rookie cop in a NY public housing complex. This is so sad to see and all we can say is, 'here is another young black girl who is going to grow up in America without a father to help her mother raise her.' It can be very difficult to discover your identity as a black woman without a father figure. Many times, our race often focuses on black men without a father, but believe us, it is very hard for black women too.
One of the main reasons why many of us black women search for love in the wrong places is simply, because a lot of us never had fathers to raise us.
After all of these black men getting killed by police officers, what is it going to take to get our black race to unite, love and respect each other? What is it going to take for black men and black women to seek God and totally submit to His will and His way? What is it going to take for our race to stop hating being black? Because this is a cycle that has never came to an end. It's a shame, it seems like all the average black person cares about it being accepted by whites and other races while our race is yet dying.
In the meantime, our prayers go out to Akai Gurley's family and little girl. God bless them all.
