The black woman is the most attacked woman on the planet. Yet she is the only woman that deserves the most adoration and respect. If we argue that, “we were created in God’s image” and scientist have proven that all human genetic DNA traces back to one African woman, that would mean the black woman is a direct descendant of the creator of the universe and that creator is a great black woman.
I know the media constantly says black women aint shit. This is a very bad representation especially for young black women who are growing up and don’t know any better. That is why as parents, sisters, aunties we should have the capability and equipped to tell and show young ladies that this “black women aint shit” paradigm is just a white man’s propaganda. The reason I am focusing on women in this article is because women have to be in their feminine to be able to operate in the highest. This is also true for men; by nature black men are alphas. But nurture, society, white supremacy stripes and aims to strip this inherent power that black men have. They have to conform to this narrative that a white man has written for them. This is why I always say let us look into ourselves and create our own narrative by create our own institutions, schools, banks, companies etc. When we realise our strength, and operate in this, more specifically as women, we build strong relationships, we become comfortable and enjoy operating in our feminine space. Furthermore, we can uplift our men so that they can be able to fight for us and protect us. In addition, you will notice that life becomes peaceful, I am also speaking by experience. If we are serious about achieving what our ancients built and going beyond, then let’s start within. As black women when we are in our right mind, we become a very powerful force. So let us recognize what the creator has given us and let’s start build.
She was not a white woman. She was not a Greek… Until the emergence of the doctrine of white superiority, Cleopatra was generally pictured as a distinctly African woman, dark in color.
John Henrik Clarke
No better quote describes black women than this.
“Dipped in chocolate, bronzed in elegance, enameled with grace, toasted with beauty. My lord, she’s a black woman.”
Yosef A.A. Ben-Jochannan
My greatest vanity is my skin. It is the colour of gingerbread and, thanks to my mother’s genes, smooth and mostly blemish-free.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
As Maya Angelou in this beautiful poem writes;
“You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.”
— Maya Angelou, “Still I Rise”
Lets rise and take our rightful place.
Black Woman – beautiful, powerful, resilient female of African descent with skin kissed and much more.
