Shona Ferguson took to social media to drop some truth bombs that hit hard. Shona spoke on how black people fail to hold one another accountable for the things they do wrong and that's why there are so many issues going unresolved.
Taking to social media with a powerful clip, Shona expressed how he believes black people have a hard time calling one another out and that's hindering their personal growth as a nation.
"As black people, we never hold each other accountable, it has become so easy for us to blame someone for something. We allow certain things to happen within ourselves and our circles that we shouldn't. The first thing we never call each other out when we brutally and blatantly go out of our way to pull down and destroy another successful person."
Shona expressed how he has set boundaries for himself in terms of the people he allows around him. Nasty people are not welcome in his circle and that has made the world of difference.
"I made it a point that if you are going to be in my circle, you are negative and you are toxic, I'm going to cut you out, I don't care who you are. I'm not going to have regrets about it. If you are negative and toxic in my circle, you are gone. It's simple."
Shona wants his black brothers and sisters to know that they are capable, that they are worthy, and that they can do anything they set their mind to if they just make the right choices.
“YOU ARE WORTHY! Black brothers and sisters! You are worthy and deserving of love, happiness and success.”
Fans took to the comment section to thank Shona for the moving message and for dropping facts that needed to be heard.
@andilemguda: “THANK you sir, needed to hear that... black child rise!!!”
@ntefot: “Thank you big brother... for the message and leading by example.”
@ncence3819: “Thank you so much for this truthful statement, God bless you."
@jaburadebe0: “That's true, thank you.”
