I am the guy that made a tactile retreat, took huge financial hits to reset, and now am in a place where I am slowing and surely rising up.
I told a fantastic woman who is in Tennessee (she is a strong black woman like yourself) in a closed political group. She would always be welcome to be my neighbor and if "anyone" threatened it would be like threatening my family. (period).
I am a tenacious person ... I am also extremely forgiving and peaceful, but I do set hard redlines and I protect friends and family and people who are full hearted and full of passion and those that get beat down.
Be well and keep fighting
