My Black is Beautiful

How does it feel to be Black?

Why do you call me Black?

Is it because my skin tone is different from yours?

Is it because my hair is nappier than yours?

Or is it because  the way I talk?

If it’s not my skin color, my nappy hair or the way I talk…

What is it then?

I am Black because I know where I came from…

I know where I am at…

I definitely know where I am going…

I am not JUST Black, but did I forget to mention that I am also Haitian?

My Black is beautiful, because my great-grandparents came from Africa.

They worked extremely hard to get me where I am today

My Black is even more beautiful, because I am educated

It’s even more beautiful, because the guys that I call FRIENDS don’t sagg their pants

I refuse to forget where my homeland is…

Africa is where my great-grandparents call home…

Haiti is where I call MY home…

U.S.A is where my future started…

My Black is beautiful; not because I am Black, but because  I am gorgeous, talented, educated and optimistic.

My Black is Beautiful…

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its field. Wonderful blog!

    Currently it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
