What I Like About Being Black...

I love being black.  Its like an honour to me.  I love how we come in so many different shades and so many different sizes.  I grew up feeling kinda special for being black.  We're the only race of people with our "kinky hair" and "egyptian eyes."  We are for the most part in my opinion, the most attractive race on Earth. 

Beyond our physical beauty, i revel in the idea that we created so many things on Earth, that everyone uses to this day.  Society, government, math, language and even music.  Its like i and the rest of us are a reincarnation of our legacy.  Even in slavery we kept some of our traditions like herbal medicine and even story telling. 

Sometimes i feel so intune with the Earth.  Like im going on millions of years of instints.  Like that "gut feeling." 

Even when i pray, i sometimes remember to thank God that im black.

i agree ... and i think more people should help their kids to feel better about them self.. i grew up in a home where all race were beautiful and i was exposed to many types of cultures... my husband is irish american and i tell him all the time that when we have kids they need to know and be proud of both halfs... but that they should really feel great about the black half because that is how the world will see them.. people wont look at my kids and say oh your creole and irish... they will just see african american ..
