YET, YET we have a Black woman, a victim, and all those thoughts disappear. "She shouldn't of...." "Why would she....." All the questions that mean nothing. The question should be, why did she have to die?
Misogynoir is something I'm always aware of, but with the death of Korryn Gaines, the scab of Black women disdain has been plucked and I'm once again bleeding. I live in a world where people are blaming her for her own death. What adds salt to the wound is the reaction of some Black men. The men I speak up for daily, whose initial reaction is to question her actions before her death. Questions we never ask when it's an innocent Black man lying lifeless on the ground.
