In America society views black and white men differently when addressing sexual assault. In the era of the Me Too Movement, President Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and many other conservatives have professed their concerns about boys and men enduring false sexual assault accusations. African-American males still must live with an old disparaging myth today declaring that most rapes are committed against white women by black men. “Statistics verified that 80-90% of all sexual assault offenders are a member of the same racial class as the survivor in all violent crimes.
In fact, when the perpetrator belongs to a different race than his victim, he is more inclined to be a white man sexually assaulting a woman of color.

I want to be a yogi,I want to be able to get into those crazy positions & twists. I want to teach yoga. Right now, I am about as flexible as a steel rod, I get muscle cramps when trying a new pose, & I look about as graceful as a three legged dog on ice.
But I am beginning, I am at the starting line and taking my first steps.
The hardest part of any task that you set for yourself is finding the will to start & then to keep that fire going.
What is the secret that enables people who have experienced success to keep moving forward? In all honesty I have no clue. I only know what has worked for me & that is in equal parts dependence & anticipation.
Dependence: I have set myself up so that anything that I wish to achieve others are also depending on me to get it done.
I want to go to the gym & get in shape/ start offering to teach a class at the gym. I want to eat healthier & take care of my body/ help someone else who has the same goals. By doing this I have made it so that I cannot back out. I have locked myself in to an agreement that for me to go back on my word would be a strike to my character.
Anticipation: I cannot wait to see what is in store for me at the finish line! I will be healthier, in shape, & of sounder mind.
I envision what I will look like once I have reached my goals. This person that I see in my mind, is a person I desperately want to meet.
It is because I am anticipating the moment that my current self and that other self are one & the same, I am able to push myself just a little bit harder every day.
These are tactics that have worked for me thus far. They have made me work harder & smarter so that at the end of the day I am happy with the things that I have accomplished. No matter how much or how little I have done that day, I still make sure to at least take one step forward every day, one step closer to that finish line.
I hope y’all are having a wonderful day & will work just a little bit harder to get to your finish line.
