I Am a Black Woman

African-American/Black Women 911 People

    I love the way God majestically created me.

    From the silky rasp of my voice, the gentle sway of my hips. And he loves the way the light catches my skin. The glow, a hint of warm, sweet mocha that peaks out beneath my modest covering. I love being me. I love being a black woman.

    No weaves----------------------------------I

    hate weaves, lol, I'm black with curly hair. I don't have long flowing hair and that is me. I don't want to look like you, I'm proud to be me.

    I am black. I'm actually only half,

    yet nobody is able to tell though. They always assume I'm from South America or Ghana, which is not an insult, but a little annoying to constantly hear. Well Ghana's football team is amazing so I don't really mind. Anyway I'm pretty insecure about myself but I've never hated my...

    It took a lot of hard work to get to the point

    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...

    I'm single and not looking.

    I gave up looking when I realized that most men aren't interested in me. My ex, whom I loved, his family and friends did not approve of me because I was a "basic looking" black female. As a dark skinned black female, I have come to the realization that a lot of men, even black...

    I am a black woman. I don't drink Koolaid.

    So I'm really tired of hearing about this

    I am a black woman. I have dark skin.

    I have brown eyes. I have short hair. I have full lips. Don't assume I'm from Africa just because of my complexion. Don't assume I'm from Jamaica simply because you know of no other Caribbean island. Dear fellow African Americans no I am not being stuck up. I am not white...

    The Reality Of A Dark Skinned Woman

    Dark skinned females in America are at the bottom of the barrel. We get down graded in rap music, on tv, stereotyped as being loud and ghetto fabulous with long weaves and fingernails, we get rejected by our own race of men whom would gladly choose a white women over us, we get...

    So I originally wrote this story: EP Link And

    I'm tired of getting messages from middle aged

    (married) white men. I will not feed into your age fetish. I will not feed into your race fetish. I will not help you cheat on your wife. If they wanted to be just friends fine, but this is never the case. Do any of you ladies encounter this?

    My shade of chocolateness changes with the seasons. I love my kinky coily 4c hair. People look at me and don't know what to think or say. People try to stereo-type me. However, they cannot. I am a black woman, but that doesn't mean that I come from a broken home. Yes, I am a...

    So in English class we are reading Lord of the

    Flies and we're on chapter 11. In this chapter a really derogatory term and I don't want to go to class. It's going to be so awkward because I'm the only black person in the class. Plus, in Media studies we're learning about stereotypes :/

    I'd say one of the benefits of having darker

    skin is the retention of your youth. My mom is almost in her 50's and could easily pass as someone in their 30's! Ahh she's so pretty.

    another race because they refuse to admit they are black. Some black men would assume I'm mixed because of my skin complexion and hair texture, and I'll tell them no, I'm all black baby, ha!

    I know the media tries hard to undermine us and make us feel like we are not attractive or we need to change ourselves to fit what they think is beautiful. I'm not buying it...I love my dark skin and I'm not going to let anyone make me feel any differently about it.

    have been differentiating between good hair and bad hair. What is good hair? seemingly hair that is mixed. What is bad hair? Hair that isn't mixed. I am sick of it. We black women do NOT have bad hair. We have thick curly hair. Our curls are not loose. The truth is we do not...

    Growing up, I didn't see color.
