You’ve heard rumors and rumblings about the upcoming Purple Pill, a play off of Kendall St. Charle’s Breukelen Bleu alias and my Pink Pill self-improvement program specifically for black women.
The rumors are all true, and the first event begins in just hours.
This is multi-day event covers something very heavy–the spiritual and real-world effects of sexual and physical abuse black girls and women suffer in the black community using the backdrop of the shocking Lifetime exposé, Surviving R Kelly.
Surviving R. Kelly has revealed the horrors of child sex abuse in the black community for all the world to see. Painful tales of sexual coercion, statutory rape, physical violence, torture & starvation, psychological manipulation and imprisonment by R. Kelly’s victims are only made worse by the unthinkable parental neglect, industry silence, victim blaming and community collusion revealed in the stories of those who stood by and did NOTHING.
Perhaps even more shocking is the mind-boggling defensiveness, denial and gaslighting from legions of fans who have worked in concert to INCREASE THE STREAMING AND SALES of this abuser of children.
That should tell you a lot about how the black community values black girls and women. But in case you have been slow on the uptake, perhaps the galling comments from Chance the Rapper, who basically revealed that that black community puts most of its focus and energy on the plight of black men, and he discounted the allegations against R Kelly because they were made by black women.
Many of us acknowledge this truth consciously and act accordingly. Still, many more deny but have an unconscious awareness of their perceived lack of value, and self-esteem, life decisions, mate selection, and relationship choices reflect an absolute lack of self-protection and regard. This is done purposely and insidiously, and the only way to get out alive is to know what it is and how it works.
That’s what this event will be about. It’s time to take charge of our destiny and redirect the trajectory of our futures. Folks who want to keep their feet on your neck will not be pleased. But you will leave this event with the knowledge and tools to break free from this multi-generational curse.
The inaugural event starts tomorrow, January 11. We will only allow 200 black women access, and we are nearing capacity.
