Black women remember.
We remember seeing Black men get lynched,
raped and beaten on plantations.
We remember seeing them get falsely accused of being brutish monsters en masse.
And so we are sensitive to them.
We are gentle with them.
Black men remember.
They remember seeing Black women get lynched,
raped, and beaten on plantations.
They remember seeing us get falsely accused of being bed-wenches and jezebels en masse.
And so they are cruel to us.
They are harsh with us.
