I know me!
I been hearing that I’m ugly, unattractive, repulsive, ill mannered, not good enough, secondary,not to your taste.
I been looking behind me, today at least 3x,
I find your opinion hard to process, to accept, exactly on what or whom is it based?
In fact I refuse to accept it. I will have no regard to any of your reasoning should you have any!
How dare you categorise or stereotype me in this way!
I won’t allow it to go down this way.
I know and have always known exactly who I am, and that is everything, every woman, every feeling, every blessing, every Godly beautiful, magical amazing thing that words can describe or that the Most High could create.
I know that I am Love, and Life and Power and Light and intelligence, and elegance, and strength, and worth and sexy!
I stand against your talk and your opinion, your objectification,and your perceptions,with my head held way up high!!!
I have not and will not worry about your so called perceptions, because I know me, and my sisters and my friends and my family, and we do not in any shape or form reflect what it is that you so erroneously see or recklessly speak!
I have never and will never penetrate any of the negativity that you are apparently aiming at me!
I laugh at the notion that I am not deemed sexy, because I know that I have always and historically been every Babylonians fantasy!
However what disturbs me is that this talk, these opinions, these perceptions are becoming more frequently expressed, making it harder to avoid having/ voicing an opinion on it, making it harder of it not to speak!
And what’s worse and even more disturbing is that it appears that this talk, and these opinions and these perceptions are coming from those that are meant to be protecting me.
How can it be that my own Black man attaches no respect, worth or value to the kinship in our Melanin.
Choosing European features over Natural Queen!
This indoctrination has run far too deep!
Mind f..in to say the least!
How can you despise this colour that is the same as what in your mirror you see?
Your sisters and female family members look just like me!
The depth of your issues in my humble opinion are beyond any Dr’s ability to treat!
I, could never hate you as you appear to do me. In fact what I feel for you is much pity!
Hopefully you will never father children as no matter what you say or choose to see, genetics are fact! Your children will always be half of your genetic history. They will always be half you ancestors, half of your mother, sisters, cousins, nieces, half of Me!
I feel sorry for your mother, she mush be so disappointed as embarrassed to know that this talk that she too has heard of, comes from her own sons mouth!
How can you despise what it is that gave you life, who nurtured, fed, clothed and foughtfor you, who made you who you are and whom you travelled through into this life that you are able to live?
It’s not for me to convince you however, you are free to make your choice, we live in a time of freedom of speech apparently!
Your opinion is your opinion, but I will always disagree,
Because I know Black women and I know Me!
Because I know that the Black in the woman equals unequivocal, undeniable beauty and positivity !
I wish you the best in your future endeavours, live happily.
I won’t miss you or your talk, your opinions or your perceptions, because I know Me!
I am blessed and highly favoured, I will always live Royally!
This applies to my sisters, my friends and my family, so I will say with all the Love I can muster, that you can take your talk,and your opinions and your perceptions and do something with them that an elegant and royal lady would never speak!
