    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...

    So, I'm a very laid back person

    and I have nothing against race. However, sometimes I feel singled out and i feel like a misfit. I live in a foster home with Caucasian foster parents and I'm a black female.

    Taking care of your body is like making

    Valentine's chocolate, or like carving a pumpkin, or decorating a Christmas tree, or Easter tree, or brewing coffee, or making wine etc. you've got to put your soul into it, or you're doing it wrong and it will look like a dried plum. Much like my skin at this moment :/

    I Am Me

    I am a woman and yes I am black. I have strived for the best in life and work hard to achieve my goals. I have been called names and critisized for my quest for higher education. I don't care, because I see my goals in the future. I see myself being what I want to be. I...

    When Will Someone Pick Me?

    Iā€™m usually not the type of person that would complain about this kind of thing. I mean the whole race thing. I have thick skin when it comes to the standard of beauty in the United States. Let me tell you a little about myself first. Iā€™m a 20 year old female living in LA. I...

    I have never gotten the hang of hair care.

    Before when I used to relax it, it would always end damaged. Now that I am natural, it's not different. How do some of you do it? I got cornrows with extensions, and it is in the worst state it ever because it was braided too tight. Then I put box braids, and the bald spots...

    If I straighten my hair,

    bleach my skin, and change my eye color I will still be black. Natural hair, a big booty, and brown skin dont make you black. It is the Soul within me that tells me I'm black

    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...

    Hi! I'm just a black woman

    that feels like our culture focuses on the outside much more than the inside? As a fellow black woman, hair and beauty doesn't take priority in my life as I am mostly too busy trying to do some soul-searching and bettering myself in other areas. It's like society always tries...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Don't Assume

    People assume that because I'm a black woman that I am easier than a white woman. They think I'm stupid. They think I'm a *****. They think I don't have class. Part of this is correct. I am a ***** its true. I will stand up for myself. I'm not easy though. I have had one night...

    Sometimes working hard to impress others can

    drive a person insane, since they are more worried about how others may view them than themselves. As a teenager I use to believe that the only way for people to see you in a positive way and not go by the stereotypes they may have had about a person of color, was working harder...

    white/Hispanic/Asian women but when it's a black women she's bitter or bougie or some other negative adjective. Sometimes I just hate being part of the "black community" because of all the backwards bull and negativity permeating it.
