That Black, Afrikan WOMB——–MAN!

SistersThat Black, Afrikan WOMB———MAN!

No… I won’t say, “Be strong”—Black, Afrikan WomBman… not this time…

I give permission for you to be weak… I give permission for you to cry… for you to scream… for you to pull your hair out and fall on the floor and kick and scream and to tell EVERYBODY to go straight to hell…

I give you permission… to NOT give a damn, at this VERY MOMENT…. BECAUSE…

Your hair is not straight enough…

Your ass is not big enough… or, for some… it is TOO BIG…

Your waist is not small enough…

Your skin is not light enough…

Your nails are not groomed enough…

You run your mouth WAAAY TOO MUCH…

You demand too much attention from your man…

You always cook something SOMEBODY doesn’t “Like”…

You fuss n cuss too much… complain too much…

And… YOU are the source of The World’s problems…

Although…

You cook… you clean———do dishes… clean floors… clean tubs & toilets… you do laundry—gather, sort, wash & dry—fold & put away… you CARRY the children… HAVE the children… NURSE the children… RAISE the children… TEACH the children…  DISCIPLINE the children… COUNSEL the children… LOVE the children—in spite of their constant display of their LACK of appreciation for YOU…

You advise your family… your friends… and, try to be a shoulder for any and EVERYONE in need…

If you don’t say anything… to avoid misinterpreted criticism… YOU SUFFER the consequences…

If you DO say something… it usually IS misinterpreted as criticism… and, AGAIN… YOU SUFFER the consequences…

If you don’t compete with the other Sistaz—you have LOW SELF-ESTEEM…

and, if you DO…”You think you the sh*t!”

You try to give good, sound advice–“You think you know it all”…

You mind your business–“You don’t care, at all…”

You cannot seem to satisfy ANY man… and, because you allow it… he runs with MANY OTHER WOMEN…

and, if you won’t hear of being mistreated… AGAIN—you have TOO MUCH MOUTH…

and, NOW—it’s a WHITE woman he wants?

If you work—to support your family… and, are too tired to MAINTAIN the home…

you are a poor excuse of a mother…

If you are home—MAINTAINING the home… and, need financial assistance in doing so…

you are a LAZY, poor excuse of a mother…

You ADORE your Black, Afrikan Man… your Black, Afrikan Family… Your Black, Afrikan Community…  and, want to BUILD and MAINTAIN your Black, Afrikan Nation… and… as much as YOU ARE……….

You are NEVER enough!

So… Black, Afrikan WomBman…

I will NOT say, “Be Strong”…  No… not THIS time…

I give you permission to BE… whatever you need…………

at this very moment… and… in my hands… and, my SOUL… I will hold on to your strength for you…

and, when you are ready………………..

TAKE BACK WHAT IS YOURS………………….. YOURSELF…………….. and, again…  and, together…

let us SHARE in one another’s STRENGTH……… as…

WE WILL RISE……….. Because…

That Black, Afrikan WOMB—-MAN!

For… “A nation can only rise as high as its Woman.”—The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
