You’re Pretty, For a BLACK girl.

Courtney,
Moore, OK.

I am told this quite offten and it makes my heart ache, not because I let it bother me personally, beause I don’t. But for the other black women and young ladies that are told the same thing and don’t have the courage to say that I am a beautiful black women, not pretty for a black women. We will always have hate and inequality in this world, as long as we have ignorance. And we will always have ignorance in this world, as long as we are willing to keep our mouths shut and let things be.
