The revised and undefiled version.
Sometimes I think BW, self included, need a reality check-pick me up-self esteem/image booster. It is rather unfortunate. So here goes ladies, this is how I choose to look at things:
We are true survivors. We have learned to survive and adapt to more BS and drama than anyone else.
No offense to my white, Asian, and Latina sisters but black and African women are the most evolved women on the planet! We have the most genetic diversity- thus we have the most evolved DNA. I’m not making this up, check it out:
- Or simply Google: human genome project, Africa DNA, Africa evolution
We age better than anyone else. I am mistaken for a teenager constantly and I’m pushing 30! My mother doesn’t have a single gray hair, and very few wrinkles- she’s almost 60.
We are the LEAST likely to have stretch marks after carrying a child.
We have the most beautiful natural bodies. Other women pay thousands of dollars to have the fuller lips, bigger breasts, bigger butts, and darker skin (tanning) that we naturally have…it’s the good DNA.
Our complexions allow us to pull off and wear vibrant colors.
We have natural rhythm.
We know how to work hard, take charge, and lead.
So forget all the insults, ignore the racists and the self haters- they’re really just one in the same anyway. Make and keep a running list of all of the compliments you’ve ever received and refer to it often. I do it and I don’t care if you think it’s corny.
Feel free to add anything to this list that I may have missed.
