In the realm of the “newly” discovered term “intersectionality” and the uprising of the free spirited Generation Y, a period of self realization is happening amongst the masses. With this, I decided to take some time to reflect and meditate on my intersectionality as a Black, Bisexual, College Educated Man of Eclecticity (not sure if that's a word, but it works) and I have found out the root of the problem...BLACK MEN ARE PROMBLEMATIC.
On Memorial Day I turned 27. This yeah I decided to write a letter to my 7 and 17 year old self. I think it's necessary to look back on your life and reflect. I remember 6, 16 and 26 were all rough years for me but I had to remind myself that 7 and 17 were me coming over rough times in my life.
To 7 year old Erick-Joseph...
