Black Women: Disrespected? Unprotected? Neglected?

58 years ago Malcolm X uttered this phrase about about black women, “The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.”

His words have not lost their impact as they’ve shown up again in social media memes in the wake of the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision.

The issue of being disrespected, unprotected and neglected… is just as painful for black women now as before. What are they feeling and how should this be addressed This is part one of a two-part conversation.
