Systemic Racism, Solutions and "The True American": A Representative Breakdown and Letter by Founder and CEO of First Ladies of Poverty Foundation, Shatoyia Jones
by: Shatoyia Jones, FLP Personal and Professional Development & Passive Income Mentor
As a proud African American and American, it hurts to come to the realization that being patriotic for some is simply a flag. It is not fighting or rallying against our government and putting your full faith and trust that it will work for you. It hurts that the most impactful moments in American history are sweeped under a rug to maintain a false sense of cultural superiority and increase economic power and privilege for a small number of people, and I grieve because the people who support the full reliance on our government to do what is right by us (the people) don't understand that the reason for the American democracy is to work for the people. Unfortunately, historically, it has only worked for certain people, and it has never been my people--the people who LITERALLY built and continue to build this country's wealth with our culture, innovation and hard work that has been exploited and appropriated since being brought to this land.
More than two million American women have had to drop out of the workforce this past year, resulting in the lowest percentage of women in the workplace since the 80s. Many factors, such as shouldering the childcare burden, are contributing to the fact that women have been leaving their jobs at four times the rate of men. Whether forced to leave their careers, put them on hold or stay working while finding a way to navigate through a morphed career environment, women are finding ways to survive through these unprecedented times.
