Don’t Change Black Women, Change The System That Strips Us Of Our Humanity

Don’t Change Black Women, Change The System That Strips Us Of Our Humanity

Most of us have heard that Sha’Carri Richardson was suspended after testing positive for THC, one of the components of cannabis. She used cannabis as part of her healing process after learning of the death of her biological mother from a reporter. This resulted in her being stripped of her win in the Women’s 100-meter Olympic trials, and she will not be able to compete in the 2021 Olympics in this race. It’s still up in the air if she will participate in a relay.

Sha’Carri responded with an apology, but it IRKS MY SOUL that she felt like she had to apologize for simply taking care of herself.

Cannabis has always been and always will be medicine!

The record-breaking athlete and Black woman tweeted: “I am human.” It is, in fact, necessary to make that statement. Too often, Black women are seen as survivors that need to overcome tragedy after tragedy, then rise up and keep going without the time or resources to heal like a normal human.

When President Biden was asked about the ruling of the Olympic powers that be, he responded: “The rules are the rules and everybody knows what the rules were going in. Whether they should remain the rules is a different issue, but the rules are the rules.”
