Note: This post will be very offensive as in it deals with the KKK. If you get offended, this is a good thing as it shows that you are a compassionate human being capable of sympathy for others.
The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was created in 1866 by former Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forest, who served as the Grand Wizard of the Klan. The Klan's goal was to oppress the freedoms of freed African-Americans and to control them through fear & discrimination.
The KKK worked in "conjuction" with White Leagues, Black Codes, and Jim Crows to limit the freedoms that freed slaves in the south have. The KKK is mostly made up of White "Christian" Southerners & former Confederate soldiers who wanted revenge on African-Americans and the north for Reconstruction policies. The KKK have their own flag, but they also use the Confederate flag and the USA flag for their parades, speeches, and cross burnings. They were originally in southern states like Mississippi, Arkansas, Georgia, and Virginia, but have now sadly spread up north and out west too.
During the 1860s-1960s, Southern police officers would on many instances commit horrible acts with the KKK. The KKK burned down black schools, homes, and chuches; they shot up businesses, persecuted black people at BS rigged trials, and they lynched (hung) black people in horrible mobs for no reason besides their skin color. White southerners joined in with the KKK's lynch mobs and segregation, along with police officers. The KKK along with other White Southerners, also went after and killed Northern & Southern whites who denounced them & supported black/white equality.
The KKK sadly still exist today in the US, and are almost always listed as a hate group; another notable hate group are the Nazi's. During the 2017 Charlottesville Rally in Virginia, the KKK made a showing and were responsible for assaults to protect the Robert E. Lee statue in the city. The KKK are an evil group of people.
Growing up in the South and near the capital of the Confederacy, I have seen the KKK in the local news before many times. I have seen KKK recruitment flyers in my area (not at my house, but like a town over). They & racism aren't welcome here!!!
Pretty sure this weekend I did both! ——————————————-
It’s ok to cry about it, I actually cried because I was told by my lush friend Lo some supportive words about how I’m bossing it and inspirational. So it made me all emoshhhh!
So this weekend I packed up the whole friggin house, on my own, and went to the tip twice (the tip is something I can’t bear so I was proud of that😂) I got rid of so much crap and actually, although a sad weekend I feel cleansed and ready to move into my little flat 💕
Be proud of your little moments and small steps! They might not be anything to someone else but they made you feel good at that time, so be proud ✨
Also, make sure you don’t put too much pressure on yourself to feel a certain way, like, if you cry for weeks on end, you will eventually stop and you will eventually feel better so don’t feel bad that you’re not #bossingup . Cry if you need too! 💃🏽
Share and follow what im chatting about over here or anyone who might need to start following #thebossinitbible you never know when you might need to read or hear something that I chat about 😊
How do you capture 10 years worth of life in just a few photos??? There’s so much I experienced in my 20’s that it seems impossible to sum it up in a simple post. From being the first person in my family to get a college degree, to traveling to Europe, picking up new skills (like pole dancing), new haircuts (donating 22in) , marriage, 2 healthy baby boys, promo events, photoshoots, buying a home, starting two companies, and finding my place in the family company... I have learned so much, yet feel like the next 10 years is going to blow my mind. I’m happy that my 20’s ended the way it did, and am hopeful that my 30’s will bring me just as much happiness. Thank you everyone for all the beautiful Birthday wishes...
If you are having problems with your past, let me ask you a question with a logical answer. Can you change your past? The logical answer is no, so the logical question to ask, why bring it up or dwell on it? There are lessons to learn from our past, which is wise, but to punish yourself as if that’s going to make things right, is useless energy wasted time that could be of a benefit to you or someone else in need!! Focus on the words of this song and a scripture that I’ll share in the next posts. #thepast#pain#failure#mentalchains#emotionalchains
