    Sometimes I wish I wasn't black.

    I've been around light skinned people my whole life and was never able to celebrate my race/ethnicity. And it's a scary world out there for people like me

    I am a black women in America,

    and proud of it. As of lately, I find myself quite frightened. With everything that has occurred within the last three years or so, it is safe to say that justice is a foreign concept to our country. I don't even want to get in the front seat of a damn car. Poor Sandy Bland.

    Black and Proud

    I may hate my hair, but I love my skin, my family, my friends, my history, my culture! We may be disadvantage Tyra Banks, but I sure do love my race! I can't imagine waking up in other skin.

    Comprehension

    If it was Aramaic By which Jesus spoke Then why is it Aramaic So hard to find? If it was good Of which Jesus only spoke Then why is good philosophy So hard to find? Perhaps it is not the power Of the few But the power Of our heart

    People are always saying I'm white Even

    so no one has to wonder

    or ask me anymore and most likely quit talking to me when I tell them. YES, I AM BLACK! Know this in advance so you don't make the mistake of even visiting my inbox if you don't like black people or something.
