Why Are Black Women Associated With Being Single Mothers?

So, this post was a raw one. I basically speak from the heart, and kind of with no boundaries. Sorry not sorry if my raw emotions offend you. I'm only saying what's on my mind, because I know I'm not alone. You think it, but you don't want to say it. That's ok, because I say it for the both of us 😊 You wouldn't believe I spent over 20 minutes looking for a photo of a pregnant Black woman on Google. You would think my eyes would start scanning the images that pop up in the results, but nope. What does my extra woke self notice?

What the hell is that Google? I search "Black Maternity" and the top 3 results?
  1. Black Woman
  2. Single Mom
  3. African American
Why is this? How come this is the narrative? Boo on your stereotypes. So, I compiled a list of beautiful Black families welcoming new life. I don't own copyright to any of these images, just posted from a Google search.

Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.

I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
