Breaking the stigma of mental health, Zach gets real. Also, a look into self-care. Get used to it. You'll hear more about this topic in the future.
Some info for anyone struggling with mental health issues:
Today, ABM celebrates an important holiday that most aren't aware of. June 12 is the anniversary of the day the US Supreme Court passed down the decision in Loving v. Virginia in 1967. It is an important moment in the Civil Rights Era as it dealt a pretty vicious blow to segregation and Jim Crow laws. Thus, it is a day to celebrate because the Lovings Win!!!!
I love football. Played it for years. Followed many teams. REALLY do enjoy a good football game. But the sport has changed since I've played. And now, the corrupt organizations that represent football are profiting off of the bodies of (mostly Black) players with little care for their well-being. My thoughts on why I am boycotting the NFL.
Mother's Day has passed. I hope all honored our mothers. But, here in this country, Black motherhood is a peculiar phenomenon. Black mothers have to endure so much. They have to be prepared for the worst. They sign up for such heartache. All for the love of their children. Lets talk about Black mothers. I call for the beginning of an annual Black Mother's Day. Because, some mothers, will NOT get that call on Mother's Day. And yet, they should be honored just the same.
