So much pressure 

Not every black girl has smooth skin!

Some of us have acne and discoloration.

Not every black girl has wide hips and a big ass!

Some of us are straight and narrow.

Not every black person has rhythm!

Some of us clap off beat!

Not every black person listens to hip-hop, R&B, and rap.

Some of us listen to rock, indie, classical, and more genres!

Stop sexualizing everything we do on social media!

Stop pressuring us to be perfect!

Yes, we are frickin magical, but keep the pressure off of us and let us do our thang!

3 Men

1. Accused of sexual assault

2. Accused of sexual assault

3. Accused of sexual assault

1 and 2 are successful.

3 is successful, but his reputation went down hill.

1 and 2 are still standing on a pedestal.

3 was crucified.

Two are white, one is black. Two were born into privilege. One had to earn it.

1 and 2 are still winning.

3 is getting what all three deserve.

Sooooooo…….yeah

I wrote this post on August 4, but I fixed it (kinda) last night.

 

I’m scrolling through Instagram, on the discover page, and I see facts about how studies show that black people are scientifically better than white people at this or that, or that they are superior. When I look at those post, it doesn’t make me feel better about being a young black lady, it makes me feel bad. I don’t want to be better than a certain race or gender, I don’t want to be more superior than a certain race or gender.

I know society sees the black race as inferior, but as long as we know we aren’t there is no need to find validation that we are not.

I just want to be good enough and I think that’s all that matters.

I know I’m good enough. I’m good enough for my friends, for my family. Just not enough for society.(#effsociety)

I understand why they put up those posts, but they need to stop. Let’s continue fighting for equal rights instead of putting other races down.

And that’s that.

I’m not a feminist.

I’m just a young woman who does what I want in the world.

I’m a young woman who is ambitious.

I am a young woman who has freedom.

I am a strong young woman 

I am a woman.

Marilyn Monroe once said, “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” 

Interesting.
