Strong Black Woman

Sister Mary Cliff sent me the message below today to declare me an honorary strong black woman, an honor I deeply appreciate. I do have a bit of an affinity for the black women. When I get down about homophobia or someone asking me something about my cheek that is so none of their business because they're just some stupid shop girl who doesn't even know my name (breathe, just breathe, don't slap anyone), I think of the garbage women put up with and then with the racism on top of it...I really don't have it so bad.

If my girls can hold their well-coiffed heads up against hate, then there is no reason I can't hold mine up too. Keep on keepin' on, y'all! Except for Condaleeza Rice...she and her heinous Lucy Van Pelt hair can suck it.

The message from Sister Mary Cliff, a beautiful black woman if there ever was one:

Pretty is as Pretty does...but beautiful is just plain beautiful!


I'm supposed to send this to BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMEN, and you are one of them!!!

If you share this with other women, you will boost another woman's self esteem, and she will know that you care about her.

Thanks for all you do.

To quote another strong black woman Coretta Scott King

"Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood,"
