In times like this, silence is complicity.
When black people are treated not as humans, they start collaborating with others and spending their lives in silence.

Sometimes, people's silence is a bad sign for the nation.
Every issue is a Black woman's issue. And Black women's issues are everyone's issues.
The issues or problems faced by black women are beyond limits. They suffer at every phase of their life. Every issue is related to black women issue.

Don't just sit around and complain about things. Do something.
Complaining about things is much easier than doing things. Suppose people start doing the things for the bright future of others in spite of sitting around, complaining and blaming others, things will be in a different direction.

When we start doing something great and unique that helps build up others' future, you inspire as many people as possible. You should not be the last to do great work. Be an inspiration for others.
