It’s so refreshing seeing a black mother be so open and nonjudgemental towards her daughter especially when expressing her feelings. That’s the kind of mother I aspire to be. #BlackFamily #BlackLove

I do wanna talk about one of these tweets because it’s part of the problem and I feel like even though this tweet brought it up, people still gonna pass it by.

See, but this is the problem of whole racial communities seeing bad mental behaviours/actions and just chalking it up to “those crazy white people”. When the pass-off “that’s white people shit” is just used for one-off innocuous jokes about real trivial shit, that’s fine, but you also see it being used for big-time psychological shit like this too.

And I know no one wanted to make the world be this way for black girls or guys, but it’s definitely a deep-seated issue in the community. White people didn’t make this happen alone, the stigmas against mental health in racial communities held by poc also are a huge factor in helping to cause this. And then people wonder why mental health issues aren’t taken seriously in poc communities. 

But how can anyone take an issue seriously when no one wants to address it responsibly? Or see it as the non-racial occurrence it is - mental health issues happen to everyone, race has nothing to do with it. Stop racializing mental health issues. A lot of poc blame mental health stigma on white people, but you can’t, you can’t blame others for what is perpetuated in someone’s own community by someone’s own community members.

So that’s why everyone, everyone needs to step up for mental health.

This is so important. I love that Jada heard her out and didn’t start freaking out or alienating her. It also goes to show how mentally taxing fame at such a young age can be.
