i heart the black woman

 June Challenge (day #22)

dear black woman,

hey beautiful, how you doing? yea you, over there with that natural, kinky, permed, straightened, nappy, twisted, long, short, curly, bald, braided hair that you won't let me touch, wet, or mess up. truth is, you are not your hair. so i don't care how you choose to wear it. i just want you to be happy in your skin...

albino to dark chocolate..and all shades in between. God loved the brown tones so much he kept using the brown crayons to color his people. i'm saying you've been shaded by God, now tell me that ain't beautiful or you ain't beautiful? girl stop...

and let me look at you. with that short, petite, average, tall, amazon, brick house, slender, thick, meaty, curvy body. you were meant to be viewed in different tones, shapes, sizes. that's what makes you unique. all those differences, yet you are one in the same. just like you & i are one in the same. you're my sister, my friend, my mother, my cousin, my daughter, my aunt, my wife, my lover, my girlfriend. you are a part of me, like i am a part of you. in what world do you hate a part of yourself?

i know it's been hard out there, alone. at least that's how you feel sometimes huh? where are all the good black men? we're here, it just takes time to find us. so don't give up. don't think it's not worth it. it's worth it, because you're worth it.

don't let anyone tell you there is a boycott on black women. you can't boycott your manufacturer. we are, all of us..because of you. so thank you.

don't think i don't appreciate.. 

you. your hard work. your wants. your dreams.

the impossible is made possible when two people believe in the same dream. all i want to do is help yours, you help me with mine. let's make the impossible happen. you see our president? do you think he could have did that without our first lady?  we have to believe in each other. if we don't, who will?

sincerely with love,

a black man/ tha unpretentious narcissist/@studiogenius

I could give you a generic ‘aww… that was sweet’ comment, but I won’t. Seeing that you took your time to craft this beautifully written letter shows your true admiration for the black woman. Thank you so much!

This makes me want to write an ‘I heart the black man’ letter.
