"Stick and Stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you" unknown
Black women are loud, ghetto, gold digging sluts and bitches. They are angry, bitter, independent and prudish or super hyper-sexual hoes. These words are reinforced through media, print, television and music. What if I told you that we were lied to? That we were bamboozled? That words DO hurt? That these words have not only hurt us individually but collectively.
How did we get to this point and why do we embrace these words and wear it like a badge of honor? Why do we find it so easy to disrespect the black woman? Why do we disrespect ourselves? "Whatup bitch, What up hoe." Where is the love?
Let's take a look at the origins of these stereotypes and see if we can break the programming and narrative that have been pushed on us since we came out of our mother's wombs. And while we're at it, let's take a look at a few of the stereotypes that have been assigned to the black man and how that has also effected our interaction with each other.
