I’m In Hiding!

We have to be brave when we speak our truths…Clara Freeman

Hello courageous women of authenticity! I need to post my whereabouts to all of you-my faithful friends and readers of the world who look forward to stopping by Authentic Woman for inspiration, a safe place to land and to share your truths. My truth is that I’m in hiding. I’m in hiding because I have no words for what is happening in our world today . I’m in hiding from all of the senseless violence that is occurring and the bias and apathy that runs rampant among America’s people and those called peacemakers.

I’m left speechless by the plague that follows America’s history well into the 21st century! I’m ashamed and embarrassed and so sick and tired of lives lost, racial rhetoric and excuses made for why what’s happening is happening. It’s time, no, it’s imperative that people get their minds right and face some ugly truths! Some of us harbor hatred in our hearts. In the 21st century, we are still rooting for the good ole days of Jim Crow’s separation of the races, submissiveness and apathy in the face of injustice, racial profiling, murder of people of color, killing of white police officers in retaliation( unclothed truths) that are overlooked and not talked about or addressed. This is the time to put an end to this racial divide and injustice!

I’m in hiding because I’m sick and tired of people placing blame on one group as opposed to another group. I’m in hiding because I refuse to speak with a forked tongue. Let America’s all America rise up in truth and stop perpetuating the lies. Families have lost their loved ones. Little children have lost a parent, wives their husbands, husbands their wives and this takes precedence over skin color!

We have got to stop this madness. I have a grown son, a family man, who works everyday to support his children. My son drives while black. My son, like your son, life matters. The difference is, my son is more likely to be pulled over by one of those who have sworn to serve and protect. My son is a law abiding family man who respects his elders, doesn’t drink or carry a gun. He’s a proud, intelligent and independent black man and somehow, that seems to be a problem in America. This ugly mindset have to change. We have to do our part to make that happen. Use your gifts in whatever positive capacity to help bring about a positive world change for our children and the generations to come.

Even while being brutally beaten by white police officers, Rodney King believed in the beauty of a people’s respect for one another. Why can’t we put aside this ugly way of living? In the words of Rodney King,“Can’t we all just get along?”

I apologize to my beautiful family of Authentic Woman followers (of every ethnicity) but my truth is… I’m outraged and I’m in hiding from all of social media until I pray myself to healing and recovery.

Keep love in your heart for all God’s people and always treat yourself special. Unleash Your Pearls Empowering Women’s Voices, will be available soon!

  1. Clara, I feel you. It’s so heartbreaking to see what’s happening around the world. It seems as if everyone thinks that violence is the solution and it’s not. And every other day you read a report about someone committing an act of violence. WTH is really going on?

  2. Hi Marcie, a religious person would tell you its Armageddon foretold. Because I’m more spiritually awakened and self aware, I know these actions are “man made’ and based on human hate with no compassion for life. People who act from hate will sure enough pay for their sins. And those of us willing to use our voices: those visionaries, writers and humanitarians have to keep bringing awareness with our works and seek solution that will invoke change in the minds of people holding onto their diabolical thoughts and deeds. Prayer works and I’ve been praying and writing and sharing off social media a lot. I believe when we stand together in the effort of good people working to right wrongs in the 21t century, then that will help bring change and end this violence. People who hate have a choice to make. Unfortunately they are making choices that harms other human beings and we have to work together to stop it.

  3. Clara,
    I totally understand your “hiding.” It almost feels like the only sane thing to do right now. However, being a black woman, we can only hide in plain view.

    Our hearts are torn and we feel some kind of way. We want to take the high road but we keep getting pummeled there too.

    All we can do is continue to pray for the healing of this land and depend on our support groups, those who are and are not of color, to remind us that there are people in this world that love others no matter the color of their skin.
    Love you!

    Until your return,

  4. Thanks so much for your insights, Ollie! I am hiding but I’m in hiding in answer to a clear intent and purpose to use my God given gifts to keep bringing awareness to this deadly problem hurting all of America, for sure. This grievance is centered upon a grave injustice being done to the life of Black America’s men & women, in particular and is one that cannot be denied. I’m a Southern woman of faith and prayer and know that only love and compassion for humanity will heal this wound between the races. I will continue to do my part to assist in the change that needs to happen.
