I hate seeing black men disrespect black women, any women but especially black women considering the sacrifice and devotion that she has done for us. I hate when i have to defend women because of a insecure, weak minded man who is mentally conditioned to hate his roots.
But I can’t hate him, cause he is still my brother. I’m still a Black man and I can’t turn my back on the ignorant, weak minded black man that disgrace Black women.
So can you educate him instead?
If you tell her she’s beautiful, she’ll think you’re sweet, but she won’t believe you. She knows that beauty lies in your beholding…
But there’s a better way. You show her she is beautiful. You make mirrors of your eyes, prayers of your hands against her body. It is hard, very hard, but when she truly believes you… Suddenly the story she tells herself in her own head changes. She transforms. She isn’t seen as beautiful. She is beautiful, seen.
