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 wonders....is 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'....
