LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: No Lip Service for Reparations

I’m glad the conversation of reparations is coming back up. However, I am suspicious. The reason being is it seems like white folks are willing to listen a little more than usual. Those of us entrenched in our community know that we’ve been pushing for this with no media coverage or fanfare. I could be being pessimistic, but I wonder if this is another case of appeasement for the moment or another false promise. See 40 acres and a mule.

Birth Control Isn’t Always the Answer

I’m not surprised injectable birth control raises the risk of HIV for Black women. I mean, what doesn’t affect us worse than every other group of women? I, for one, never used birth control nor do I recommend it. There are so many women who have used birth control and have horror stories for days. The human body is naturally intelligent. Say no to manmade chemicals like birth control. Figure out when you’re ovulating, know your body. Women have built-in birth control.
