The Black Woman's mind is filled with so
much creative, excellent, resourceful, positive, healthy living and wisdom. It
should never be compared, debased or devalued according to society's negative
opinion of their capabilities and intentions.
Despite the strategic attacks against their mind, body, spirit and soul...we continue to rise and live our best life! How
dare anyone make us feel that we have to act less than who God created us to be
which is healthy, happy and wise! We don’t have to be depressed, stressed and
down-trodden, just to make someone else feel better about themselves and looked
down upon to feed their own false sense of superiority and low-self esteem.
That is not why we were put on this earth,
we are here to prosper and be in good health even as our souls prosper and that
means so much more than just having material wealth. We were built to stand
tall and walk strong. Our lives don't stop being beautiful and wonderful if we
lost a job, spouse, childless or become overweight.
WE MUST KEEP LIVING, STRIVING AND GIVING OF
OUR BEST SELVES in all life situations! That
is why you were blessed with your abilities nor should you be trying to
hinder or be jealous of someone else growing
into their greatness at whatever stage they are in the during the process.
Our black womanhood is not just defined by misery, despair and bad
attitudes all the time. We have seasons of happiness, sadness, madness and
gladness just like every other human being on this planet.
We no longer have to
prove our self-worth or be made to feel that we are less than worthy because of
our darker skin tone, hair texture, eye color, language dialect, social status,
intellectual abilities, fashion sense, family, culture and regional
Everybody has had their share of stress and struggle in this society, therefore that
whole method of trying to compare life challenges in an effort to prove who
deserves to be blessed is despicable
God has a plan for everybody’s life that is
why we are here on this earth and we will be blessed according to what is needed for us
individually which makes jealousy, envy and presumptuous pride just plain ole
DUMB!…Don’t allow another persons negative opinion of who they assume you
should be or act according to your age, wage or stage in this world be
implanted into your mentality. Their word is not the final authority over your
life. It doesn’t matter who they are, career status or who they are with,
because social status, health and wealth are temporary attributes they
permanently define anybody’s life long capabilities or value.
Our beauty has always been and will continue
to be beautiful, that is not a secret, surprise or new discovery that needs to
be under review or proven…IT IS A FACT!!! That is why so much energy is being used to make
us feel less than who were created to be as black women in all are areas of our
life, not just according to our marital, motherhood or financial status.
BECAUSE OUR HUMAN VALUE IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THOSE THREE VERY IMPORTANT BUT
STILL TEMPORAL CATEGORIES OF LIFE.
It is often assumed that we have to be
constantly assured of our looks, x-ual acrobats, network structure and perfect
behavior in order to be of any acceptable purpose, but that is simply not true!
We as black women will not be the targeted subject of these damaging experimental
mind games and exploitive malicious attacks against our humanity for
the next 400 hundred years (NO-NO and NO AGAIN!). We don't have to be forced into the fanatical character portrayals of a strangers stereotypical movie script role play when out in public or in private social settings. We don't have to be forced to complete the presumptive teleprojected sentences of intrusive and repetitious questioning of private matters to random people regardless of their job title and social status for unknown reasons.
We as black women will not be pressured into the uncomfortable position of playing false relationship games were we are often the uninformed, targeted and unprotected victim of another person's scary imagination that could put us in a emotional and physically harmful situation.
We don't have to have a shrink wrapped personality in the presence of other people to make them feel powerful especially if they are rude, arrogant with a unrelenting need for admiration from others because of their social, marital, religious and intellectual status. Real leaders don't require fake motivation and artificial compliments. Natural confidence is internal without all the extra theatrical performances, animation, forceful undertones and dramatic status declarations, it's just too much!
We as black women deserve equal compensation, acknowledgment of ideas, the freedom to protect, defend and be fully informed to make personal decisions according to all formal agreement options and choices that pertain to our existence.
Our skin color, female and social status
will no longer be three strikes against us, they will now represent THE THREE
BLACK PEARLS IN OUR ROYAL CROWN, because contrary to popular belief we do deserve our place in this race, especially since it was
our precious human cargo that was exported to this nation and used to build
this establishment we call the
. This makes our United States of America
citizenship, contributions and entitled civil rights justified, validated and permanently
solidified in the concrete structure of this earth where the blood of our
ancestors was deposited for next future generations to withdraw from the abundant life of what is needed
for us all to exhale and breathe until our final day on this earth!
PLEASE NOTE: This blogs post may appear to be filled with bold words, adjectives and descriptions about the issues of Black African-American women however the persecution, affliction, trickery, abuse against them for more than 400 hundred years was ten times bolder and that is why the same level of boldness has been applied to correct and heal the dam
age that has been done to them in many areas of their lives because they are valuable members of this universe.
