i am tickled pink! long ago, i consoled myself with this possible upside. there is always an upside!
at the very least, black males and others will be hard pressed to "joke" about black women in the white house and as impediments to success now.
as the clowns "joked" about Michelle in the white house, when black, i allowed myself to excuse them. i found empathy and compassion in the realization that their poor little enslaved minds just would not allow them to see in their minds eye what they've not been shown consistently in the media---many examples of regal, educated, classy black women. in their little minds we don't exist, much less deserve to be featured in prominent places. especially not those that look undeniably, no need to stare black. (yes! i said it, it is true! i don't believe Mr. President elect would wear such a title had he been born to two parents that looked like his father in hue and features. but that's just me and beside the point.)
i am tickled pink that there will be a black woman and two little black girls in the white house!
i pray that his Oness does a great job; otherwise i fully expect for it to somehow be widely accepted as Michelle's fault. sound familiar?
in the interim, i will enjoy the images and hope that Michelle brings as many black women with her as she can. black wardrobe stylist, black hairstylist, black chef, black secretaries, black assistants...
OMG, i just described a nightmare for some americans! lol!
self love~ self acceptance~ self respect
