I just listened to a girl talk about growing up with lesbian moms and how loved she was and supported because of them and like……it’s so healing to me. I think so many of us are brainwashed into thinking that we are not worthy of love or family. That somehow we are doing a disservice to a child if we choose to be mothers and it’s not true. We can be amazing parents. We can create loving beautiful families.
Miley Cyrus bastardized and profited from hood culture, and when she was done, went back to her lily white lilypad. White women are always rewarded redemption regardless of the rebellious phases that they go through. They can make a “mistake” and when it’s all said and done the white community will still let them back in with open arms.
The black community is the exact opposite. Black women are not awarded the benefit of the doubt. We can’t make mistakes and rely on our community to receive us with open arms. If a black woman slips up and gets pregnant by a “thug” or goes through a “promiscuous” phase, she is damned forever. Look at Ciara. To this day, Ciara can’t breathe without the fuckboy coalition bringing up Future. Blac Chyna will always be the DC stripper, even though she is no longer a stripper and she is now a successful business woman. Karrueche’s success will always be overlooked because Chris Brown and his brigrade wont leave her be. Black women have to walk around with a scarlet letter because the black community does not believe that we are worthy of redemption.
Thats the main reason why I practice #blackgirlsolidarity. Non-black women don’t get it and they never will. Becky and Consuela and nem can twerk on stage and sing about getting higher than 100° F. Black women can not. We don’t have that privilege of going through a “phase”. We have to sit down with our hands between our thighs in fear of being ostrasized for any mistake that we make. So Miley can get the fuck on. I don’t know her…
I love how they can take photos from anangle which would typically make any normal person develop some form of double chin, and they out here looking all National Geographic with their jawlines and aesthetics
