Women in Africa and the Diaspora: “Pray the Depression Away”
yesterday, she finally mustered the courage to call her mother. with shaking hands and cracking voice, she told her how she couldn’t sleep. she couldn’t eat. her body felt heavy. something was inside of her that didn’t quite belong. the something was sitting on her chest. breathing was harder. thinking was harder. she told her what the doctor said. it was depression. her mother on the other end of the line sucked her teeth. she didn’t believe in such things. all her daughter needed to do was pray. she just needed to attend church more, read her bible more. nothing was wrong with her, it was juju. it was god testing. and so she went to church. she sat in the front pew, eyes fixated on the pastor. and when it was time for altar call, she peeled herself from the wooden seat to stand in the front. people surrounded her. they prayed, and screamed and placed holy water on her head. this would fix her they told her. she would be better. and so she went home, she opened her bible to psalms 121. she prayed harder, went to church every sunday. she would be fixed she told herself, all she needed was more god. but months past and the darkness inside of her began to spill over. she no longer enjoyed the activities she once did. her night walks in the park became nights of sitting in the dark. curtains closed, door locked. she no longer wrote poetry or baked her favorite hershey cookies. she barely slept and her mouth was sewed shut rejecting food and water. she was sinking deeper. god wasn’t fixing her. praying wasn’t fixing her. and so she reached for the white pills that sat next to her bible. 3 at a time she threw them down her throat. if she couldn’t pray the depression away, she would kill it.

There’s such a stigma against the ills of mental health in the black community. Prayer is great, but it doesn’t solve everything.

This is “war.” This is Gaza. This is Palestine. Do you not see how bad things have gotten? And wats all over the news? Lebron going back to Cleveland. How can that be anywhere near the media when this is going on? How can you people turn a blind eye and pretend like this isn’t going on? It’s pretty pathetic. I posted a few videos and a few pictures and instead of everyone sharing and trying to raise awareness I lost over a hundred followers. To hell with you all who unfollow me because I show “bloody” pictures. Like I said in my previous post, I’m sorry for ruining your perfect day for a few seconds when this mans life has been ruined forever, like thousands of others in Gaza now. NOW! DO YOU PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING? RIGHT NOW AS YOU READ THIS PEOPLE ARE DYING?! IS IT SO HARD FOR YOU TO RAISE AWARENESS? IS IT? WHAT IN GODS NAME IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? HOW CAN YOU BE OKAY WITH NOT KNOWING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON?!? HOW. God please, please I am begging you from the bottom of my heart, please from every inch of my being with everything I have, please please please turn the Palestinians pain and suffering to happiness and ease. Please God I beg you because you’re the only option these people have left. It’s obvious the rest of the world gave up, please Dear God, please Ya Allah, help these people in every way possible. Do not let them feel an ounce of pain more than they already have had to endure. Please God destroy and make do with the evil that’s causing these catastrophic events. Please God do not let Israel do to us what Hitler did to them, not anymore. They’ve done more than enough. Please God I’ve turned to you so please don’t turn away from me and answer my prayers because you’re the only one that’s willing to help. #Ameen #PrayForGaza #PrayForPalestine #WhereIsTheHumanity #WhereIsTheUN #WhereIsTheHumanRights #WhereIsThePeace #EndTheGenocide #ImBegging #God #HesTheOnlyOneWhoWantsToHelp #StopBeingIgnorant #OpenYourEyes #StopTheKillings #EndTheOccupation #Palestine #PalestineWillBeFree #Israel #Terrorists #Terrorism #Murder

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

There is nothing more difficult than waiting. This father carried his son to Al. Aqsa Hospital in Gaza after he was hit in the bombing of his house. He waits the fate of his son if he is still alive or not !!

and you wonder why palestinians try to fight back. whats if YOU lost your loved one. what if israel killed YOUR son or brother or mother or father or sister. how would YOU react?
