“Say It Loud” ... (I’m black and I’m proud)



Amidst a carnage of confusion with questions of where are we? For Black Ppl, and so for all of Us in the world, a new togetherness reminiscent of the Freedom Riders of civil rights America began to Emerge. Like an inevitable tide really.

George Floyd’s murder as continuum and as landmark has awakened, kickstarted and jolted a new and rejuvenated Black self-pride, particularly with the younger gen. With 18 - 32 year olds world wide at the heart... Very importantly, it creates new avenues for dialogue, better overstanding, and a chance so humanity can see a way.

But I began to wonder who still seemed missing and almost invisible from the narrative, as always.
Black and prescribed as albino.
Black but still in a margin?
I wondered what was such a story as could be told.
Does a brother or sister of such an appearance have to fight extra extra to be seen and recognised?
Sing louder to be heard? Until they: Butterflies As Metamorphosise, Emerge ?
And too all said and done, if he here says loud I’m Black and I’m Proud, what does this say to us all about the whole question of skin, race and colour!!!?
The answer is in his hands. If we find it , we see that All is Well.
