-Thank you for the sweet messages, specifically about my posts concerning black women. I didn’t realize how many whites, asians, and non-blacks in general were interested in the opinions of bw like myself. Keep encouraging the the bw around you and virtually that is okay for them to be themselves. As quiet as it is kept, many bw have been made to feel as if our opinions do not matter. We are to follow what black men say and keep quiet….
-I couldn’t blog here if I did not use this blog to uplift Africans and people of African-descent, ESPECIALLY black women.
-Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve always pissed people off lol….and I will probably continue to do so. I’m not a sheep and neither are you all. This blog is NOT here to please everyone. Life doesn’t work that way and a tiny blog like this certainly won’t work like that either.
-I’ve called out western media coverage of Africa, Western volunteers going into Africa to “help” when some do more harm than good, companies like Tom’s Shoes who want us to believe their intentions are of pure heart (ha!), and I’ve called out many Africans themselves who insist on making life so damn miserable for their fellow people.
-While I will continue to show positive images that many don’t associate with Africa, I will NOT keep silent about issues that affect African women and her children in the West. Some of you may be to scared to speak up or too brainwashed to notice when you are being fooled. Whatever the reason, I have to be myself at the end of the day.
-I am going to post topics that are going to make many of you VERY uncomfortable and I am okay with that and I hope you are as well. It’s good to get a different perspective on issues. Black women with opinions similar to mine seem to be missing in the public discussion on race, media, gender, business, etc. So I will continue to use this platform to share those opinions with you and from other bw thought leaders.
Welcome to all the new subscribers and thank you thank you thank you to those who have stuck around. I have no idea why (seriously, why lol) but I’m thankful that you have :D
