Black is as Black does!


This is a lovely quote I saw on Facebook…Had to share it!

 

“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” Let’s take “Black” back. Blackness should never lead to unhealthy decisions. The very function of culture is to make life better. So the next time someone says – in jest or all seriousness:”Black girls don’t swim.”, “Black people don’t eat sushi”, “Girl, Black girls don’t hike”, “Yoga? You ain’t Black” Tell that person, Black is as Black does. Live your healthiest, most fulfilled, most productive life – let’s call THAT Black. Bet. [Credit: Quote by Audry Lorde]
