I’ve had to take some time to process all that has transpired this past week. The emotions, the traumatic videos, the grief, the worry and the racist actions and comments on social media all weigh heavy on me and my family. I am a black woman, the mother of a black son and daughter and George Floyd and Breonna Taylor’s murders are my worse nightmare. It is even more terrifying than a nightmare because the probability of it coming true is greater for my children than those who identify white in this country. We are not only tired of the racism and inequalities we experience on a regular basis, the numerous videos of police and random citizens disrespecting black bodies, but we’re tired of feeling that we have to walk around in a world, constantly on eggshells among people who do not cherish us.
So, I’m not here to only write a letter of solidarity, but also of appreciation for my clients who continue to support MT Austin and Associates. Whether you patronize this business specifically because it is a 100% woman and black owned company, or irregardless of that fact, I appreciate your patience this past week as I took time to just be with my family, to step away from the fear, the sadness, the trauma and the heaviness of it all to find some moments of peace. I love seeing the voice of people all over the world speaking out against the injustices and demanding change and I applaud every act of protest seen and unseen.
We appreciate you, and join you in the continued fight for a country that is safe for all of us. If you’re still looking for a cause to support, consider signing a petition to bring justice to Breonna Taylor or fund an organization that helps black men reach their full potential.
