From a very young age, a girl is told to hide away Hide her feelings  Hide her opinion  Hide her intelligence 
I sit in class and feel shame. Hist 264: Intro to the African Diaspora Something my forefathers caused. Something my forefathers relished in. Something that makes me sink down.
I see a Diaspora set in motion. I see it in the refugees that swarm shores only to be pushed away. In their hands held palms up, A backpack strapped tight, and a lost childs toy. Syria is the new victim.
