Everyone has a story that deserves to be told and Black People Speak is the place to tell your story. Our stories have been pushed to the background for too long. This is our space to discuss our issues and critique ourselves (in a respectful manner).
This message is for the people who are approaching 30 (or the people over 30) who feel they haven’t accomplished anything. DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO THEM! Many of the young people on this list have wealthy parents (there is nothing wrong with that) who are able to help their children succeed in untraditional ways (Hell, if I had children and the resources I would do the same thing).
