Yes. Rihanna did.
She gave us life, carried life, and reminded us of our value.
Our choices have value.
We have value.
So, let’s demand it.
Be in flow and glow. Glint and glisten people. We have value. We are dark dazzling diamonds.
What they are afraid of most, is our value.
Know your worth.
Otherwise, they will say, we have no worth, no value.
We are worthy, shining, souls.
Our minds, money, and melanin…they want to diminish the value of it all.
But, we won’t let ‘em.
Restitution. Reciprocity. Reparation.
To respectfully paraphrase Rihanna, bitches better have our money…pay us what they owe us, don’t act like they forgot.
Rihanna, we see the light in you. We appreciate you honoring our cultural currency.
