Black People are not a Monolith


Black People are not a Monolith

 The above statement means that individuals who identify as Black, African American, or of African descent do not all share the same beliefs, values, experiences, or perspectives. A diverse race of people with varying backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. It is important to recognize and respect this diversity and not make assumptions or generalize about individuals based within the Black race.

Each person has a unique combination of traits, beliefs, values, and experiences that make them who they are. Black people are multi-faceted like the many sides of a gem. These facets can include things like hobbies, talents, beliefs, goals, and life experiences, and they can vary greatly from person to person. Acknowledging and embracing our multifaceted nature can help us better understand ourselves and appreciate the diversity of others. It can also allow us to explore different aspects of ourselves and find new areas of interest or personal growth. We cannot be placed in a box. We are not a monolith. Black people have influenced and are involved in every niche, genre and activity on this planet.

Embracing diversity amongst ourselves means valuing and celebrating the differences that exist between individuals. Recognizing that each person is unique and has something valuable to contribute, and that these differences should be respected and appreciated rather than feared or judged.

We must create an inclusive environment where all individuals feel welcomed, safe, and valued. By doing this we can learn from one another and create a stronger, more connected community that celebrates the richness and complexity of the Black experience.

From being the boss to indulging in cosplay. From Goth girls to those who embrace the soft life. At Create Lavender, we are dedicated to highlighting the beauty of the diversity among us. From clothing to stationery, we are focused on creating designs and products that allow you to express yourself authentically, boldly and proudly.
