Black Love- Oh yea, it does exist!!

(origin)

Black love is not extint.  It's not a fabrication nor a fairytale.  It's real, deep, wholesome, and true.  Basically, don't believe that hype that the media wants to perpetuate.

More than 40 percent have never married, one study found. So growing numbers of women are tapping into their screens.

These stories are not from blogs and personal views of random persons on the web.  These are well known, well RESPECTED media giants carving a hole in the Black consciousness with it's poisonous words.  It sickens me to see how something so strong and solid as Black Love has to be labeled as dead, or a thing of the past. 

Yea, in certain areas I'm sure it looks that way.  Here in Denver, my hubby and I are the darned minority!  A Black man married to a Black woman is pretty hard to find here.  A Black woman can feel kinda left out with the majority of the Black men with Latino or White women.  Despite that I refuse to allow one city's issue determine the death of the Black family or Black love. 

It was so disturbing when there was so much hoopla about President Obama and his Black wife as if a Black family with educated parents and mannerly children was unheard of!  WTF???  There are examples of the Obamas all over this damn country as well as in the entire world.  What's missing is the showing of more than one or two loving Black families in the media as well as in the movies.  Oh, they'll show a single Black mother with a non-existent father but that couldn't be further from the truth.  Black families seem to hit the news only when something bad happens. 

I'm celebrating Valentine's day by shedding some light with a few images of real Black love and not just ads.  I'll be enjoying Valentine's day with my Black hubby as will millions of other Black women.  Don't believe the hype!!
