Black women not angry just tired

Outside and inside of the black community black women are often looked down upon. We always work harder than anyone else, but it is frustrating that with multiple degrees and years of experience in our fields, we are still playing catch up. We are at the bottom of the unwritten American Caste system. We are paid the least but are the most educated, often perceived as angry, unattractive, and lazy. I am none of those traits and neither are my friends. We just want to be seen as beautiful and capable of achieving anything we want, but it has always been a struggle. So get to know a black women, you just might learn something new, meet a loyal friend, or fall in love.
