“But I had to reflect onconsideration on so many things. As a black person, I observed myself in this location the place I desired to say some thing however what befell would mechanically be viewed as my fault, it would convey [my charity] Sistah Space down.

“It would be ‘oh, she has a chip on their shoulder’.”
