Black women will not become extinct

As a black woman I continue to see the not so subtle messaging in media and advertising often portraying black women as the fair skin, curly or wavy hair image on the arm of a black man or any other man for that matter. 

Black male images are often seen on the arms of any woman other than a “sista”.  Unless of course his preference is not women.

America continues to struggle with the confident, educated brown or chocolate woman and are far more comfortable with what is deemed as “easier on the eyes”

Black women have much to contribute and should not be ignored by media in their efforts to reduce the black family to a false narrative of comfort for white america.  We desire to be loved as well by a confident, respectful, enlightened black man
