Dear Sistas, Let These White People Study You

If I told you that you were great, would you listen to me? If I wrote an article proclaiming how fascinating, dynamic, progressive and resilient you are, would you receive what I am telling you?

It’s likely that you would. I am a Black woman (proudly) who loves seeing other Black women at their absolute best! With that being said, I’d like to start an ongoing dialog that’s going to span several weeks and several blogs. We’re going to talk about some touchy subjects including: hair, men, weight and attitude. Some of it will make you uncomfortable; some of it may even upset you to read, but just because it doesn’t necessarily feel good, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be addressed.

So let’s get to it.

First up: If we are going to support Basketball Wives, we have to be willing to defend/explain ourselves.
