    To Feel Beautiful OR Not To Feel Beautiful

    I am struggling. I am lost. Today, I had a moment. A moment where I felt torn down. I looked at myself and felt drowned in my own wariness. My ex was a bi-racial boy. I thought back at the "jokes" he told about me being fully black. When I said something like, "I would yell so...

    I Am What I Am...Or Whatever America Calls Me...

    I am what this nation gives me; and in this country I guess that means I'm loud, violent, talkitive, and disrespectful. It's hard facing these words and many others of the kind on a day to day basis. Not being given a chance in a situation. Knowing that you'll most likley end up...

    I Love Being Black....Don'T I ??

    Being black isn't all about color or is it? Is being black also understanding where you came from while knowing your ancestry/roots? Because the saying is we as a black people need to know our past so that we can understand the present and prepare for the future. Hence it's sad...

    I Love Being A Black Woman.

    Growing up in predominantly white areas, I was afflicted with a low self esteem; but as i grew older i learned to love things about my racial identity. First of all i learned it DIDN'T determine my inner or outer beauty, nor my Self Worth. I love my skin, i am less prone to...

    ...and Bipolar

    It's hard waking up for me sometimes.  It's easy just the same, because i like and love who i am.:-) But, sometimes it's awfully hard being me, while it's also the easiest thing for me to be.   It's not easy being a black woman in America.  Due to cultural stupidity (meaning...

    We Are Beautiful But You Wonder Why We Have Low Self-esteem

    Having a conversation with my mother about how one "aunt" (I use that word lightly) supposedly (probably) said that my sister and I weren't as beautiful as our mixed-race (Black and Latina) cousins sent my mind back to thoughts and problems surrounding Black girls and self-esteem...

    where I am able to look in the mirror and say I am not ugly. It took a lot of hard work to not point out all of my flaws. It took even more of an effort to look at society's image of the perfect girl with long legs,a tiny waist, long flowy hair, just perfect everything and not...

    And there's nothing wrong with that.

    I am a human being and deserves to be respected and loved. I have full blown emotions, wants, desires, and pains. I am beautiful and I am versatile. The color of my skin shouldn't be hated, demeaned, or erased. It should be accepted and it should be celebrated.

    I Am A Black Woman

    I enjoy being a black woman in modern day America. However, truth be told the only slight draw back is my ethnic hair. It takes too much time and money to maintain that goes against my low-maintenance way of being. Other than that I am a black woman and I'm glad.
