It has been a problem for a long time, hinted to on movies, we saw Cyntoyia Brown released from prison due to a crime committed trying to save her own life from abuse. Countless women are being targeted, most recently women from Atlanta have been chiming in to discuss near fatal situations and the horror is worst then that of any movie on screen.
I remember a couple years ago leaving The Best Academy after work on Olsen Memorial High way a group of men of color in a white van and they drove slowly next to me, trying to talk to me, but I was headed to the bus and actively ignored them. The cars coming from other directions caused enough distraction where they just pulled off, it was creepy, and as time passes it seems this happens all to often, everywhere, all the time.
The movie “Get Out” spoke of black bodies, and it’s resiliency. Living in a place where one can be treated with discrimination, and on the other hand a commodity, not unlike slavery where you can be kid napped and sold for sex or parts. We need to take caution and not take each other for granted. I don’t know who the people in the community who are kid napping and selling black women to the highest bidder, but it’s happening. Children and men are also being found dead without organs, some have also been sexually abused. I would say wake up! But this is a known issue, in which society chooses to ignore, because it speaks to an ugly truth few want to face. This is occurring all over the world constantly, a type of body brokering that has cannabalistic ways, and is a disease to humanity. I pray everyone stays cautious, prayerful, and conscientious, as they travel locally or internationally, in the immortal words of Mobb Deep, “there’s a war going on outside no man is safe from”. Also remember to pray a circle of protection over all your family, friends and love ones. In the name of Jesus, Amen!
