Let's face it.....the idea or the perception out in the world about black women is clear. We are Strong, mouthy, angry, and loud. We are difficult to get along with and many Black men have turned their backs on us as their choices for a girlfriend or wife. Do I AGREE with that notion of us? HELL NO!!
It's shallow to assume any type of woman is easily categorized with the same attributes. Other than the majority of us being discriminated against because of the color of our skin, we are very different. CAN I be loud? Yes. AM I LOUD 24/7? No. CAN I be angry? Yes. AM I ANGRY 24/7? No. You see where I'm going with this. Any woman can be angry, loud, mouthy as well as difficult but somehow we've been labeled with these negative qualities. As if Black women don't have enough to deal with!
