Fast food workers at various NYC restaurants walked off the job today, protesting low wages and backlash against efforts to unionize.
Experts say this is the beginning of the biggest effort to unionize fast food employees ever in the U.S.
Express your current obsession with a womyn to let her know that her efforts haven’t gone unrecognized. Explain to her how she provides you with mental, physical, & emotional support. Speak metaphors that clarify your position in the life of your relationship. Relationships engage a backbone-to-backbone collision that lays cement for a foundation, that produces the relationship’s shape. They say that relationships between young people lack sophistication. As if age makes our romantic bonds lack an understanding of equality and struggle. Even as teenagers and young adults, our decisions to pursue love propel us to learn about being with people outside of ourselves.
If clash with our significant others affords us a distinct relationship, I like to think of love as a house. Without working out the problems of our interactions, “young love” ultimately develops broken doors and shattered windows. Shall we look at the facts? 1. It’s rare that someone teaches young men the value of demonstrating that they care about the relationship. 2. A lot of young womyn never learn without pain that mind-reading isn’t the highest form of communication. Hard times of love not only complicates functioning young relationships. Even more, the dismissal of young love does not give us the right equipment to build relationships.
Far too many Black youth continue to be demonized, criminalized and murdered.
Enough is enough!
In response to this intensifying crisis, the Black Youth Project (BYP) has launched “The Pledge.”
With “The Pledge,” we are asking individuals and organizations to close ranks around black youth and make a commitment to take action and fight with black youth as they confront a relentless crisis. We at the BYP believe that each person can make a difference by doing something!
By taking The Pledge we not only articulate our concern about black youth, but symbolically unite our voices with others who will work to confront this crisis.
If we each take action, whether it is starting a group, signing a petition, or mentoring a young person in your neighborhood, then we all become a part of the solution.
Stand With Black Youth!
