Take a moment to reflect...
“The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is that black woman. The most neglected person is that black woman”- (Malcolm X)
"Millennials…are…spoiled, impatient, and narcissistic. Their childhood bedrooms overflow with trophies earned just for showing up. Raised on a diet of adoration and encouragement, they enter adulthood rosy with entitlement"
