Battle Fatigue - Still Dealing with Racism and a World that Seems to Hate Us

It's my girls ya'll, back for a very important discussion. We are talking about what I am calling Battle Fatigue. It seems like almost everyday there is a new incident of racism and hate speak against people of color.

I feel tired, drained and some days it's hard to be optimistic. In short, I feel like I am doing battle. So, I wanted to know if I was alone in how I'm feeling and invited my tribe to chime in. We are all feeling the strain, trying to keep it together while dealing with the racism that people are so proudly putting on display.

You've met my girls before but just in case:

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
