Black Women Deserve Protection
On August 21st, Megan Thee Stallion told more than 150,000 people who tuned into her Instagram Live session that Tory Lanez shot her in the foot unprovoked after an argument. Once the news was released, Meg received a mix of support statements and statements of disappointment. From being called a snitch to being critiqued for her reaction to the situation, the disrespect shown to Meg displayed the unavoidable lack of grace that is put on black women. Like many Black women before her, she suffered in silence to protect others while remaining unprotected herself.
