Indigenous peoples do not have the luxury of the lightheartedness that Beker seemed to be advocating for, because "too dark" is their history and their present day reality. That was the point of the book: for Canada to see life through their eyes. And that was the point that Ali Hassan excused the audience from internalizing, when he made an exception to colonial privilege for the people in the audience.
I often pray to God that He stand in my body, think through my mind, and speak through my lips. The better Jully, on the other hand, gives my mind over to God and lets His grace work through me.
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
Jeanne cut me off once while speaking. When I attempted to finish my thought, which she seemed to be listening to, things took an unexpected turn.

Well done. My mom, who lived a beautiful 81 years, always provided a voice of wisdom when my insecurities had me trying to ease God out of my soul. And on that date, possibly for the first time on Canadian national television, the daily lived reality of Black women was brought into instant focus. But the thunderous applause from Black women around the globe, who related to that moment of personal truth, has been overwhelming.
It became even more clear to me that so many of us have been silenced by fear of losing our jobs, relationships, access to career enhancing opportunities, or even social and economic status. We, Black women, are capable of formulating and delivering intelligent thought.
We do not need your fragility. We are capable of freely having a difference of opinion.
And we have as broad a range of emotion as you are capable of feeling. What really happened in residential schools? That apology, which would mean so much to Indigenous peoples, also happened to be one of the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It was a clear slap in the face, and made me understand how easily their concerns are dismissed. As a Black woman, I cannot accept injustice against my Indigenous brothers and sisters. And to speak from the skin I am in, I will use my platform as a bridge, to amplify Indigenous voices and affirm the truth that racism and discrimination is alive and well in Canada.
But we are living in a time where we can easily come together to change that. I would also like to mention, that after saying what I said to Jeanne Beker, not only did people from Black and Indigenous communities congratulate me, I also received a degree of love and accountability from white people. I applaud jullyblack for this. Being able to listen to our truths is a good place to start.
