Ahmed doesn’t need me to stand with him.

Damn.
Ahmed already had a healthy, happ family and wasn’t even near poverty.

He’s getting a whole bunch of rewards and fame while Kiera Wilmot got mentioned and passed over.

She’s doing well now, but outside of a few black independent and social media spaces, she’s unknown and most folks are only seeing her name for the first time because her story is being attached to his.

I don’t stand with Ahmed.

The patriarchal social construct, and sociopolitical power structure of the left is doing that just fine.

I’ll stand with the women of girls of color who have nobody standing with them.
