I Love Being African American

for those who are black and proud! Male or Female 128 People

    As I've gotten older I have become more

    Afro-centric. I love my dark skin and kinky hair, lips, nose, all the features I get from my African ancestors.

    For the last 2 or 3 months I have been exposed

    to what I will call the black conscious movement within some african-american circles. I've had the opportunity to speak with many people supporting this movement and even listening and watching the videos of the authors who have created documentaries who are the leading...

    Wouldn't Trade It For Any Other Race

    I love being black. I never understood why some black people hate being black and want to claim other ethnicity's they know they are not apart of. I love my natural hair and I love when other black women wear theirs. I "wear" my blackness with pride.

    So while I was exploring different groups I

    found. some that were centered around hating being black, more specifically a black woman. I did not know how to respond. I wish there was a way to show them the beauty in our race. Being black is so amazing to me; I can't fathom being anything different. It saddens me to know...

    The Box

    in a society that demonizes anything and everything black, how can a child grow up without doubting at best hating at worst the most beautiful gift that god the almighty has blessed us with? how is it possible that a little black girl choose a white doll over a black doll each...
