Loved your article “Happy Black Women Would Be Bad For Media Business” and I soooo agree with you on the possibilities of what the Obama’s have. Check out this song “Obama Kind of Love” at my site under music. Keep up the great work!!!
Thank you! The song is sweet and inspirational!
I really enjoyed your article published/posted on MadameNoire.com. I completely agree with you that our President and First Lady being successful people of color (and even his campaign), brought so much media attention to race matters and spurred this new “hot topic” of Black women are in dire straits. I think it is less of a conspiracy and more of a lack of understanding that stereotypes aren’t OUR norm. I wish there was more focus on us telling our own stories than merely being solicited for opinions when it is felt that we match someone’s idea of what the Black single woman’s life is like. Great read!
Thank you! Maybe we need to discuss the relentless harmfulness of stereotypes as well. I’m not sure you caught my post about my article on here at https://tessism.wordpress.com/2010/06/23/obama-love/ but please read it and go back to MadameNoire.com and post your comment there. Your perspective deepens the conversation. Thanks for your thoughtful comment!
Even your about page is beautifully written.
Aww, thank you so much! You are too sweet.
P.S. I just saw your Tessisms on Twitter feed and saw that you went to Cornell? I’m about to be a senior there!
Way cool! CU is tough place but if you can make it there…you know the rest. Good luck and rock out in your last and best year there! You’ll never forget so make it good!
