“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead,” – Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
We’re going to see a lot of quotes on photos in the next few days reflecting on Mandela’s life. Instead of flying past them, reflect on them for a couple of minutes. Find room for his ideals in your heart.

This is what our society feeds off on. Eurocentric policy requires that youth of color be depicted as animals, and look, thats what’s being perpetuated continuously within our media. Why did we allow the antics of Sharkeshia to Viral vs Black Girls Code?
Because you all don’t really care. You don’t. And at the end of the day, you would all rather see a child being attacked than a child attacking the racial & educational barriers that we all live in today.
Although I am in agreeance about the part of Eurocentric policy demonizing youth of color specifically black youth, people need to be aware of a campaign in order to make it go viral.
I didn’t participate in that viral madness but, at the same time, I as not aware of any update on the Black Girls Code project until this post.
Black Girls Code is a non-profit. It’s been ongoing. Since 2011. They’ve done countless workshops in the USA & South Africa, & they are jumpstarting a web series & other various projects.
But that’s the exact point the author of the article is making. People will never spread the accomplishments of a black positive movement, versus an attack. Therefore Black Girls Code may never go viral.
