Just like many networks, schools and opportunities in America, for a long time, they just weren’t the same for people of color. For this reason, we had to take the step and create our own platforms. You’ll notice this with HBCU (Historically Black Colleges) , Networks like BET and of course the American Black Film festival. If ever there is something you want to do and it is hard for you to break into the industry then it may be time to go ahead and create your own lane.
As many of you, I am one that has become obsessed with these new platforms, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. BUT primarily Instagram. I love the funny memes, dance vids and makeup tutorials I will never use. I found myself on wired tangent of hourly Scrolls, Likes, Comment, comment, like, watch, scroll, DM, Stories, Like and before you know it 40 mins has gone by. Of course, in that time, I learn anything, make any meaningful connections or accomplish any goals. This is the same meaningless cycle that we all go through and I just noticed, hey, something is really off about this.
