My name is SaAire Salton and I created this podcast specifically to address Mental Health In the Black Community, Black Families, Black Relationships & Black Issues. My journey has allowed me help those who were written off, ignored, denied the right to heal and new chances to operate with a healthy mindset. My hope is that we learn to be safe, own our peace, heal, & stop hurting ourselves & each other. #Freetherapy
As we continue shedding light on mental health in the black community, it’s important touch on all the sub cultures of black communities. We’re going to dive into trap culture (much different from the “hood”). The “hood” can be the set you claim, the neighborhood you grew up in, but trap is where the killaz (killaz are not always murders) and drug dealers dwell. It’s where poverty , prostitution and drug addiction is the norm and perfectly acceptable. We’re gonna dive into the thought process of gangstas from the trap. Gangsters witness and endure a lot of trauma so much that they begin to normalize it and become numb to it. They get trapped in the dangerous cycle and the only way tended to be prison of death. In this episode we talk to Skin. He describes his upbringing and how he got involved in the trap life. His story is amazing. It’s all about perseverance and resilience. We hope you enjoy.
