Sherri Shephard and Hill Harper will be on ABC Nightline tonight (11:35 EST) discussing black women and dating. I’m tuning in. You should do the same. I have a feeling I’m gonna be mad by the end of it.
I like tumblr… but it brings to my attention the way (some) men define beauty. I read a million posts about what she needs to have, how she should dress, how many inches her waist should be. What type of hair she should aim for, and even how much makeup she should wear.
I’m just sick of the lists… Appreciate her for who she is. It also helps if you look in the mirror every now and then… you know, to gain some perspective on where YOU’RE coming from.
I’m not firing shots. I think Bria Myles is beautiful. I just think she isn’t necessarily the ONLY beauty, nor the most beautiful. There are different types of beauty, and it comes in sooooooo many more forms than the airbrushed coke bottles with lacefronts on tumblr.
Just a reminder. Nothing personal. Back to your regularly scheduled program.
