Why we love BLK EXCL
How did I come up with this abbreviation, BLK EXCL?
I was driving home from a long day at work one day, and although I was tired, a number of thoughts were struggling for attention in my mind. All of a sudden, the words "BLK EXCL" popped up and remained in my head. I said to myself, "BLACK EXCELLENCE? But can someone else see it written out and know what it means?” Immediately, I pulled out my phone and texted 3 people: "BLK EXCL!" What does this look like when you read it?” Every one of the three persons replied: “Black Excellence.” So I jumped on Google and googled it, but nothing popped up. At that moment, I knew I had just created something BIG!
What does the phrase, "Very Important Black Person," mean?
We all know about the violence in our communities, from Black on Black crimes to police brutality. Black on Black crime is something that we have to continue to work on in our communities! But police brutality needs to be a high priority as well. We understand that every woman and man dressed in blue is here to serve and protect. We also understand they have a family; thus, they strive to make it back home every night. We are the same in many of ways! I may not be important to or needed by you, but there is someone that sees me as both important and needed!"
