Because this black woman is not a search engine.

Because this black woman is not a plot device or trope.

Because this black woman is not a puzzle to solve.

Because this black woman is not a project for you to implement.

Because this black woman is not a platform on which you can build your agenda.

Because this black woman is not your saving grace.

Because this black woman is not your scapegoat.

Because this black woman is not your punching bag.

Because this black woman is not Stacy Dash.

Because this black woman is not Olivia Pope.

Because this black woman is not Raven Simone.

What then?

This black woman wants a clean and safe home.

This black woman wants financial security.

This black woman wants just plain ol’ security security.

This black woman wants to be taken seriously.

This black woman wants tiramisu gelato for dinner.

This black woman wants to wear her hair however she damn well pleases.

This black woman wants to receive the same effort she puts in.

This black woman wants to be able to cry without ridicule or shame.

This black woman wants to watch Being Mary Jane without being interrupted by your bullshit.

This black woman wants to improve upon her physical and mental health.

This black woman wants to honor her friends and family.

This black woman wants to reclaim her voice.

This black woman wants some motherfucking happiness.

But if you’re taking egregious offense to all of this,

It’s because this black woman wants to do right by herself,

And that has absolutely NOTHING to do with you.

TPH I am out
