Racial Trauma



Racial Trauma – Racial Gaslighting
Watch Next: Stereotypes – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPW3FzvgHcI

Abusers gaslight. They say things like “you’re crazy, you’re sensitive” etc. Racists gaslight as well. They deny your racist experiences by trying to make you believe its all in your head or those events didn’t happen. They’ll say things like “are you sure that happened? I don’t think that’s what they meant” and so on. Racism is real, racial trauma is real, your experiences are real. You’re just being gaslighted! Black people are traumatized and regularly re-triggered through micro-aggressions as a result of anti-blackness. Racism is destructive and can cause Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This abusive behaviour has been normalized by the oppressors as well as by black people. Because its been normalized, black people are suffering. This channel is centred around self care and black mental health. As black people, we need to find healthy ways to take care of our health while we cope with these daily stressors. #gaslighting #racialtrauma
