Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

A little more information, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset on August 29th and cause of death was identified as asphyxia due to hanging. Police are calling it a suicide - as in no foul play involved. HOWEVER, Lacy’s mother, while looking at her dead son in the body bag, noticed a lump on his head that she hadn’t seen the day before. It was not noted in the autopsy. He was also found wearing different shoes, not the size 12 gray and neon green Jordan’s he bought a few days before, but a pair of 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed that his family did not recognize.

Lacy was also in a relationship with a 31-year-old white woman. They were forced to lie about their relationship because in the small North Carolina town of Bladenboro, where 86 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, an interracial relationship between a 17-year-old and 31-year-old caused some “tension”. Lacy’s neighbors were instructed by police to take down a confederate flag and sign that read “N*****s Keep Out’.

Just days after Lacy’s funeral, his grave was desecrated, taking the flowers 40 feet away from his burial site and digging a hole in the plot.

Keep doing research. Keep spreading the word. Don’t forget him. #JusticeForLennonLacy

I spent many years in insecurity. And within my church community I was told that I just didn’t believe God enough, that my faith wasn’t great enough to dispel my doubts. 

In these last years, I lose my grandmother (who I loved and leaned upon heavily), and last year I lost my best friend and sister of 16 years to cancer. With these losses of loved ones, I also lost friendships and relationships, and never seemed to be a more optimistic person over all.

I only started seeing a counselor in 2011, but made a switch after last year’s tragedies. I tried to skirt around seeing one because of the culture I came up with, that “black people deal with their problems on their own” and “I am crazy.”I got a new counselor through my church; and in dealing with my grief, I find out after all these years of struggling with myself that I also had dysthymic disorder (a low grade depression)! Like, wow!

Counselors and therapists who are not in your life expect by paying them to listen to you is not a horrible thing. They are trained to steer your thinking to a healthy perspective and provide insight. I have seen so many people in the African American community fall through the cracks on getting sufficient mental health treatment, going through life in bipolar or schizophrenic disorders untreated. I have the lowest grade of depression, but I do not think I’d be where I mentally and emotionally am today with prayer and my wonderful therapist. I continue to grow and get better, and I’m so very thankful for it. 

Let’s #endthestigma and become healthy people. If you need it, seek a therapist!

Gosh she could be me on the church part…but yes I agree with this

this is so true. never underestimate the power of therapy. i miss my counselor a lot now that i’m out of college and can’t get free therapy any more.

she definitely helped me build the tools necessary to keep moving forward even without her constant support and words of encouragement.

She was so cute back then I don’t understand why she got work done

Kim has actually spoke on it. its stemmed from self hate and the black men who have been in her life. she said something along the lines of herself (who she is) not being enough for them, she internalized over the years as many young black women do and thats she started with the surgeries. our skin is too dark, we arent light enough. our noses are too wide, our hair is not long enough, straight enough or we dont have that right curl pattern. its a lot to deal with.

Think about the fact that she was in love with Biggie, and he married Faith, while he was still having sex with Kim.

Are we going to dismiss the constant abuse she had experienced?

Her father was very strict, an ex military sergeant, who was so distant towards Kim & her brother she didn’t see him as a father, she experience him hitting her, her mother. She once stabbed him with scissors as he repeatedly was hitting her mother.

Biggie smalls was nothing better, he was very controlling and abusive. Kim loved him to death, she wore those big glasses because he gave her multiple black eyes & at one point choked her then put a gun to her head. He constantly made fun of Kim’s nose , He was so possessive and controlling her forced Kim to get an abortion when she was pregnant with his child.

Damion ‘world’ hardy was the worst. He was labelled ‘bipolar’ and possessive. Damion cheated on Kim multiple times throughout there relationship with lighter women and ‘exotic’ women. He’s mentally unstable, and is currently serving life in prison due to 6 MURDER charges. Damion was so unstable he had reportedly beaten kim over a game of checkers. He broke Kim’s nose TWO Times, second time was when she was still healing from the first. internally bruised her face causing mass blood clots, he also caused clots on her back and head.

People just jump to conclusions, there’s a reasoning for her change, that comes from a deep and dark place.

PREACH ^

I hate that, when people she ‘why did she do this to herself’ , ‘she should of stopped, now she fucked up her face.’ we all know kim has had surgery, she is NOT hiding it or denying it. From being mocked and made fun of by hector extravaganza about her breasts to fellow female rappers, media and people in general How does that make you better than any of the ones who abused her? It still fucking hurts. She’s a human being.

Above from fuckyeslilkim proves to you just how deep her reasoning goes for it.

People ask how she can be an idol to people?

She is such a strong woman, with her being homeless living in a car with her mother, to making an empire for herself, to making music that empowers  topics such a - Feminism, Equality in Women & LGBT She stands up for things others are and were.Lil’ Kim Started a foundation and organization that helped abuse victims and women who have been in abusive relationships.

Listen to her music, Her music is not all sexual.

" These next few lines it to you women abusers
Last nigga I was wit… straight fuckin’ loser
Niggas think ‘cuz you give ‘em ya heart
They can… dissect it and rip it apart
Mm-mm, not I, one nigga’s in my eye
Payback’s a motherfucker, put that on the Stuy
You lost a good bitch nigga you can’t front
Lil’ Kim is EVERYthing a man could EVER want
And that’s real”  - Heavenly Father


“Oh how it hurts, like child birth
The wounds heal slow, you just don’t know
At times, I don’t know what to say
And all I do is pray, day to day
But still, I feel my strength might die
Like right now, I’m tryin’ hard not to cry
Even when I close my eyes, I still see it
Damn, I just don’t believe it
The bad times I buried, like the cemetery
Unworthy people playin’ beneficiaries
A lotta people eatin’ off of one man’s death
Don’t you worry B.I., I’ma ride to my last breath “  - Hold On

She empowers people in situations she experienced aswell, you feel the power and emotion she felt throughout the song, Her loyalty is the best attributes to her. As she was prosecuted FOR not snitching on her friends, which in return they placed the blame on her.

Rather than other female rapper fans and other People attack her, Learn and take something away from this. You might see someone who has had a change in appearance and comment or laugh, but you have NO fucking idea what events lead to it.
