A Queen is a Queen with and without her Crown
It is my distinct honor to celebrate the end of year festivities and holiday season with you. This year we have been stretched (which is not unusual for women such as you who are the backbone of families and communities, still – this year, the rest of the world has endured alongside us just a fraction of what we endure year-round, generation after generation, so we must acknowledge this), and we have grown immeasurably in ways that matter.
We are stronger, faster, more resilient, creative, talented, and far more intelligent and beautiful than this world gives us credit for. The nation’s failure to recognize you for who you are in no way diminishes your value: you are worthy and deserving.
I am now preaching to the choir (which I try to avoid), so I will end my holiday message with by sharing a few lines from a super-secret document, also known as Theresa’s Holiday Wish List.
It is also my distinct pleasure to share with you My Christmas List this year, so without ado:
Equal access to fair courts and unbiased judges
Full and competent state, federal and independent investigations into every allegation and complaint of race and gender bias or violence
Accountability for any person who has denied, delayed, and unjustly deprived a Black American of his or her civil and human rights
Recompense for those who have been wrongfully denied legal and equitable justice by U.S. courts
A full unredacted report of every judge, police officer, lawyer, or other professional who has been found to have participated in discriminatory conduct against Black Americans
P.S. If you like your Christmas Greetings with less spice and more sugar (or you simply enjoy Christmas greetings) feel free to visit other Bella Caveat pages where things are always warm and sweet – if you’re a supporter of civil and human rights. Happy Holidays!
