My life. My thoughts. And I'm probably crazy for letting random people in. Wouldn't be the craziest thing I've done though. Watch this!

Woe is Black women.....

Why does America make it seem like we can't get a man? Exactly why are we the target here? Aren't we desirable?

And then the other part of me this right? I mean, after all....I do know a lot of unmarried and successful Black women. My White friends are usually always in relationships. Some are getting married pretty young. But my Black girl friends?

Sometimes as a Black woman I feel stuck. My hair is "unprofessional". Do companies consider me when they formulate foundations? Am I relevant in any way?

And then other times I feel like shouting to the world, "Screw you and what you think of me!" I am the exception to the rule. I'm not what you think I am. I hate having to PROVE myself to America. I'm not a woman. I'm a Black woman. And with that often comes some kind of stereotype and it's so frustrating.

But it doesn't stop me from doing what I have to do. I don't use it as a crutch. I keep it movin'....


  1. Sis, take this with 50 grains of salt. They used Steve Harvey as a source/consultant so... yeah.
    He speaks for me as much as Soledad O'brien does.

  2. I'd love to have someone but I will not settle and will not lower my standards. So I choose me...
