Black baby girls. Black little girls. Black girls. Black teens. Black women. Black old ladies. When we are healthy, fit, strong, educated and humble we are beautiful. African-American, Afro-Canadian, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Venezuelan, West African, East African, South African…etc. Ebony skin, Chocolate skin, Caramel skin, butterscotch skin, golden tan, vanilla, red cinnamon brown…etc. Nappy hair, short hair, bald hair, long hair…etc.
So society, stop acting like we ain’t. You know it. It’s just that you racist a$$ losers just don’t want to accept the fact that we are alluring. Stop selling Black dolls higher. Stop putting Black models in the very back in a fashion spread. Stop casting Mammy types or ONLY light-skinned/mixed, white man-friendly Black women (i.e. Halle Berry or Beyonce) in films because you are afraid a gorgeous woman of rich, dark color will outshine a blue eyed, blonde white woman.
America you suck. Too sad other countries appreciate our beauty.
It’s just that more Black women need to realize this…and stop looking to the white man for validation.
