Don't believe this Queens! This is one reason why I run On the Road to Queendom, I will refute any and all negative coverage they are doing on us! Now more than ever we need to come together and say, enough! We need to depict something other than what they are trying to show. We can be wealthy and independent, let us make good choices with our finances. Let us live within our means, and save no less than 10% of our earnings! If this means we have to walk by that pair of shoes staring at us from the shop window then walk by! Do not spend money you do not have! You can be beautiful and sexy while living on a budget! That is just it, make a budget and stick to it!
Spend within "our" community! Whenever possible buy black! Buy from black women who are in beauty, skin care, clothing, and the jewelry business. Hire your "own" to do things! Lets circulate this money within our own community! Stop going to the Kim Lee's beauty supply and nail salon! If we are to prosper we have to build one another up!
Lonely? This one kills me. Yes, black men are dating outside of our race but guess what? So can you. But don't get it twisted there are still plenty of black men, who want nothing more than his mirrored reflection, a Queen. So please do not jump on the bandwagon bad mouthing all black men thinking they are only out to hurt, abuse, take, and date outside of their race. If you need tips on dating, or love advice you know how to reach me. Thats another post all together. Please do not believe the media saying that we are going to live and die alone. This is not true. We are beautiful, and there are good men out there ready to court us!
Unattractive? Puhleeze! Have you looked at the slide show up there at yourselves? Have you been paying attention? We are beyond beautiful. Other races vie at the chance to look like us. Our curvy and beautiful bodies are the epitome of sexy. We aren't just one look, black women range in a variety of hues, and looks.
Do you know your status? How in the world can you go forward with goals and plans if you do not take care of your health? How can you go day to day without as much as walking at least 30 mins a day? How can you be around to enjoy family, friends, and love if you do not take care of your health? You need to start taking care of yourselves! This means diet and exercise. Not just dieting, no, I mean making better choices with food. Eat to live, not live to eat! Your food choices can be a gateway to dis-ease. That's what disease means, not at ease with oneself. God gives us his fruit of the earth to live on. So eat healthy and watch diabetes, high blood pressure, etc fall away. Take charge of your reproductive health. Get a backbone and demand STD tests, and safe sex practices. Its your life, if you don't care enough about it to remain abstinent or through the use of condoms, then why should he? If you are a lesbian great, but make sure of your partners status! Live long and well!
So keep your heads up Queens we are better than this, we have endured much worse! This is war, one that we will win. No one will ever make us feel inferior ever again. We've come too far.
Peace, Love, and Light
