Mirror, mirror on the wall…

“I hate to see girls who are 18-24 without kids, but their breasts are long like Psalms 119.” – Robert Mugabe Quotes *Facebook page I am an expressive, passionate and to some an unconventional/unorthodox writer. I’ve always been. As a former writer of a hit editorial magazine and marketing/sales exec I’ve learned to capture interest in the most thought and emotionally provoking ways. I shared the above quote on Facebook recently (Leading up to this post for my blogs) and it did just that!

Lately I’ve been writing about my ripped smile as opposed to ripped abs, my soul being fit as opposed to my “muscular body” etc. “You’ve gained weight…your belly’s gotten big… you’ve lost weight…your butt got smaller…why haven’t you straightened your hair…..you should do something about your stretch marks….You’re really dark..Your skin is really pale…Your hair is too thick..too hard..Your toenails are really black/yellow.. Your ance is horrible, I know something for it… you NEED to get some new clothing….I don’t see you out anymore. You’ve gotten boring…” Can anyone relate to those statements personally or heard others make those statements?

These have stemmed beyond mere social media comments to people in every day society. Statements made by people, some would say, “Are not any better off.” Skin conditions among medical conditions, an increase in joy or stress are contributing factors to weight, skin (Not issues), but challenges and changes. A new baby, change of exercise routine and diet. An accident. Blood type. GENETICS!

Quite often we speak on racism, but I’ve realized we can be racist to our OWN more than another. Black folk telling other black folk they are “Too dark”. White folk telling other white folk they are “Too pale”. Is she now a single mother with a deadbeat father of her child/children striving to make ends meet? Student loans crazy and he has to help pitch in, so no more partying and new clothing are on the back burner? Does he plan on buying a home instead of using the money for clubbing?
