MORNING STRETCH"Rise.  Shine.  Reach outside yourself.  Wake and discover the dreams you are capable of when you aren’t sleeping.  May they keep you up at night.  Marvel at how big they are and witness what they can become.  Grow with your ambitions.  Flex on those who doubt.  Nourish no bad seeds.  No black can’ts.  No black don’ts.  No black maybes.  You will.  Stretch so that the tension is too great-Become greater.  You do not have to dance to choreograph your next steps.  Just make sure you get your sun.  Black boys.  Black girls.  Your cage is too small to hold you forever.  Show them"- Dexter R.

When I read the story of Jada, so many emotions took hold of me. Anger, disgust, frustration, and sadness…Once again, a young Black girl’s body had been violated in the worst of ways. Even worse, her assault went viral on social media. Her assault went viral (the fact that the words assault and viral are being used in the same sentence makes me view humanity with a new level of disgust). Jada is fighting against her attackers and she is reclaiming her narrative and body.

Rape culture is real. Sexual violence is real. Gender-based violence is real. The continuing legacy of sexual brutalization of Black girls and Black women in this country is real. The sooner we acknowledge these truths, the sooner we can begin to dismantle the systems that continue to perpetuate rape culture.

She is fighting. The least we can do is stand by her and fight with her.
