The Commonality Of Martin Luther King Jr and Meena Harris

Image result for mlkThe 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr's death was on April 4th. This date also happened to be the birthday of Maya Angelou. Now, of course, Ms. Angelou died in 2014, and April 4, 2018, would have been her 90th birthday. EVERY YEAR on the anniversary of Dr. King's death everyone gets ultra black and starts posting various MLK quotes. A lot of these same people do not think about an MLK quote at any other time of the year but on the anniversary of his death everyone is all of a sudden "WOKE" and a "Conscious Black Person". So along with the plethora of MLK quotes that I saw ALL OVER the internet on Wednesday I also started seeing a lot of women wearing "Phenomenal Woman" T-Shirts. I thought to myself "Okay, these are awesome"! Yes, someone had the idea to commemorate what would be the 90th birthday of Maya Angelou by wearing the Phenomenal Woman T-Shirt AND the sale of each shirt benefits organizations that champion rights for women. And YAAAASSSSSSSSS I AM HERE FOR IT!
I sooooo want a T-Shirt! I saw pictures on the internet of some phenomenal women wearing the Phenomenal Woman t-shirt, such as Issa Rae, Niecy Nash, Traci Ellis Ross, and Viola Davis, to name a few. If anybody wants to GIFT me a t-shirt, I will take that in a 2XL, Please and Thank You!

A woman named Meena Harris who is the creator of the t-shirt is GASP!... a WHITE WOMAN! Meena Harris is also the Commissioner at San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women. So some black people are really so dumb that they think NO WHITE PEOPLE can help with a black cause! 

So disturbing is some of the comments I read on the internet Wednesday and Thursday. These disturbing comments were mostly made by those "WOKE" African-American people who are so black that you can't even see them.
Some people out there think that we, and when I say "we" I mean Black people, should not be celebrating or commemorating Maya Angelou's birthday or CHAMPIONING WOMEN'S RIGHTS on this day, but should only be commemorating Dr. King's death. Various comments were saying things like, "Divide and Conquer" or "how dare someone wear a Maya Angelou shirt on the day of Dr. King's death" or "Why are you wearing a white woman's shirt on Dr. Kings death anniversary".  So let me get this straight.... We as black people can only celebrate ONE THING AT A TIME! We are not smart enough, or savvy enough, or sophisticated enough to post MLK quotes AND champion women's rights AND commemorate Maya Angelou by wearing a t-shirt at the same time.
Martin Luther King Jr stood for the rights and equality of ALL Humans and Meena Harris is championing rights for ALL Women. It should not matter if she is white, black, green, or yellow.
Some black folks need to get their minds together. Some of y'all are TOO WOKE, you definitely need a nap because your brain is suffering from lack of oxygen. I swear those super intelligent, woke, black folks get on my damn nerves!

When bought from THIS website, the Phenomenal Woman t-shirt benefits seven deserving organizations. The funny thing about this entire thing is that the t-shirts came out MONTHS ago. They were initially for the equal rights of women and were being worn back in the spring and summer of 2017. But some phenomenal women thought it was fitting to wear them on what would have been the 90th birthday of the author of the poem "Phenomenal Woman", Maya Angelou!

If you never read the entire Maya Angelou poem "Phenomenal Woman" then bless yourself below...

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
