As a cishetero black woman, I will get excited about @JulianCastro running for president if a core part of his platform is black women's health outcomes, particularly our maternal mortality crisis.

Issues like police brutality & trans housing (important, no doubt) won't do it.💅
The days of getting me hyped up *solely* on issues that impact other marginalized groups or those that *disproportionately* impact black men won't work.

No more #MoralityMuling. As a loyal democratic voting group, we need a CLEAR, high priority in every campaign.

As far as I'm concerned, all of the current Democratic presidential candidates are all the same until they unapologetically make those in the likeness of MYSELF, black cishetero women, a top focus.

We've been carrying y'all for too long with LITTLE in return.

We're done.
Not kidding.

I'm not stanning for any of them. I don't care if they're half black, two black parents or if they are a woman.

I don't care about their race, gender or about making history.


Want to catch my attention?
Want to secure my vote?

Talk about doulas and midwives for black women.


You want me to volunteer my time canvassing my community for you?

And making calls?

Tell me how you'll address racism that affects black women's health outcomes.

We need more black women doctors in the pipeline.

Too many of us are dying because no one listens.

This is a problem that needs prioritizing.

Tell me how you're going to save MY LIFE.


My top 5 issues as a black mother

1) Healthcare (with a specific focus on black women's maternal mortality and overall care disparities due to racism)

2) Gun Control

3) Education

4) Civil liberties of marginalized groups LGBT/trans black women

5) #ClimateChange

In that exact order.
