Black consciousness for everyone and for those who are not always seen

Excluding black people in society does not mobilize as many reactions, nor move the public as much as exclusive and affirmative actions for black people, such as social quotas, scholarships, groups and awards.

As a practical example, recently, in response to the publication that there would be an award for black journalists in the country, someone commented on the internet: “what a joke this race is”.

The black cause continues to bother even 135 years after the end of slavery.

It has to do with the perspective of who always does well or badly in history, about having exclusivity in something or being excluded. In other words, about what is considered standard.

It wasn’t long ago that opportunities were restricted to one social class, with the same skin tone, faces and bodies very similar to each other. As the game was played by them, for them, whoever rebelled would go to the stocks or to prison.

But it seemed like everything was absolutely in its place.

When black people do well, they and their families benefit and bring advances — economic, political, moral — to the entire society; already in that news in which black people are excluded — as cruel as it is historic — they are harmed so that a portion remains privileged. Then fine?

Everyone’s life requires open doors to get going. For black people, Black November is one of those windows of opportunity.

Black consciousness is there to show who suffers from social invisibility every day. You can see who is not always seen.

Dates marked on the official calendar make us think about great events in history, great celebrations or great losses. November 20th is about all the Dandaras and all the Zombies who continue to fight.
