i was once asked to explain something in "black style"


you want me to explain this with my interpretation as a black woman?
there is no such thing as “black style”
african americans/blacks/negroes/”sistah”

don’t like to be pigeonholed by descriptions such as black style. it does not make us angry, it makes us sad.

what you have just done is point out what a black woman is expecting and usually receives when she walks into a room.

people expecting her to roll her eyes and play it up “black style”
most of the time, you will find a black woman either walking into a room with her head hung low expecting all that you just pushed upon me in this short email and feeling not so good about who she is and what God has blessed her with.

on the other hand, you may find the black woman walking into a room with her head held high, in effect saying “fuck off” to all that have a predetermined view of her.

next time you decide to ask for an honest opinion, please do not interject yours within.

thank you,
in honesty,

garota

FUCK YEAH! I CAN BE A BITCH!
YOU CANNOT EXPECT A WOMAN TO PLAY HERSELF THAT WAY.
