Don't Forget- Black Women ARE the Standard
Watching the #MetroFmMusicAwards and hearing what some of the people are saying. Apparently it’s “safe” when a woman is fully clothed. Safe as opposed to “sophisticated,” “elegant,” “classy” or even “beautiful.”
This just further perpetuates the ever-growing stereotype that black women are MEANT to dress down, i.e. dress like hoes with their “too big asses” or “too big boobs,” “too big lips” or “too big everything ” all over the damn place.
The white media slams Serena for being “too masculine,” certain blacks for not being “black enough” because they don’t look like the cartoons from the 1940s, fat swollen red lips and skin the colour of what we don’t know or any other such nonsense.
This MUST stop. And who can stop it? We black females.
We need to stand for and support each other.
Let it not be a case of “together we stand. Divided we fall.”
The stronger we are, the harder they have to prove a point.
We don’t have a point to prove because we ARE the point.
