The invisible racism that makes Black women dread the doctor's office

As a black woman who happens to be a lawyer, I am very well aware of implicit bias. That’s the negative associations people have of you before you even open your mouth based on how you look and who you are.

I say this with ALL the FERVOR. WE HAVE TO BE INTENTIONAL WHEN LISTENING TO BLACK WOMEN WHEN THEY SPEAK. It is unfortunate that we have had an existence of not being heard or protected in our society. And don’t judge her if she has an attitude when she speaks, because she has HAD to push and fight her way through just to maintain the dignity of her humanity, uplift her voice and protect herself!!!

It’s starts early in life. It happens in our homes. It happens in our relationships. It happens in our work places. And it happens, at the expense of our lives, at our doctor’s offices.

While this article talks about “racism”, it is my opinion that this is also an issue of sexism. The combination is killing black women and, generally, making life harder on them.

We all must do better.

Listen to black women. They always have something valuable to say. "I just know not to get too rebellious." In medical settings, Black women are forced to play against stereotypes.


Still. 🙏🏽🙏🏽

Stress is really bad for us and can have long term effects on our bodies. Currently, we are all surviving through a pandemic during a seemingly tumultuous year most of which is beyond our control.

But one thing that is within our control is dealing with (or not dealing with) toxic people. I prefer the latter.

This is a helpful article on how to use your emotional intelligence to navigate through the waters of poisonous people.

It is more important than any time to keep your joy ... especially during this very unique chapter.

MVP: Madam Vice-President elect, Kamala Harris


An absolute special congratulations to Madame Vice President Kamala Harris. California Attorney General, US Senator and now Vice President. So many firsts she represents. The FIRST woman to serve as the Vice President of the United States, the second highest office in the country ... the world. The first Black person to serve in this seat. The first Indian American to sit in this seat. The first alumnus of a historically black university to sit in this seat. She kicked in the door waving the .44 ... in cute designer heels and a bad ivory suit!! Breaking ceilings ... and building bridges. Now, we must NOT get lost in this moment and REMEMBER how we feel tonight. Moving forward we need to get ready to be supportive of her leadership role and continue to fight for her respect and dignity. They will come for her even when she didn’t send for them and some of them will look familiar. This is the beginning. If we want to see others come behind her, if we want her to go even further, we have to stay involved in government and be supportive of this leadership. Congratulations Madame Vice-President elect @kamalaharris. Your daring to dream and movement on those dreams have inspired so many!! Thank you for being bold enough to shatter that ceiling!! #Advocate #Justice


Alllll the reasons to celebrate today ... thank you @cookcountybar for the acknowledgment. Tune in to the award ceremony on Zoom November 19. #Advocate #Justice

Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett to Fill Ginsburg’s Seat on the Supreme Court

“The nomination will kick off an extraordinary scramble by Senate Republicans to confirm her for the court in the 38 days before the election on Nov. 3, a scenario unlike any in American history. While other justices have been approved in presidential election years, none has been voted on after July. Four years ago, Senate Republicans refused to even consider President Barack Obama’s nomination to replace Justice Scalia with Judge Merrick B. Garland, announced 237 days before Election Day, on the grounds that it should be left to whoever was chosen as the next president.“ The president’s nomination of Judge Barrett, a favorite of conservatives, to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, will kick off a furious and unprecedented scramble to confirm her in the Senate before Election Day.


Harriet Tubman (far left) standing with some of the people she was leading to freedom. When laws are unjust, we’ve always found a way. #Advocate #Justice #BlackLivesMatter


The most impactful peaceful protest you can engage in the honor of #BreonnaTaylor’s legacy is VOTING. God bless her family. Justice or just us?? #SayHerName #HerLifeMatters #PoliceReform #CriminalJusticeReform now


"I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability." May her memory be a blessing. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 #RBG #NotoriousRBG


It all starts with you. You get what you give. You reap what you sow. So, say good, see good, sow good and do good. 💞 #Advocate #Justice
