From Book---WHEN A BLACK WOMAN CRIES
Black women are strong and beautiful, however,their beauty and strength cannot hide their tears of frustrations, depression and low self-esteem.
African American women, respectively called, Black women are complex lovely human beings that demand respect with every step they take in life. I was looking over pictures in my family’s photo album and the transformation of black women from decade to decade amazes me tremendously because in the midst of their change, they improved their lives through education, hard work and strong values. Today, there are numerous of issues that make black women cry, the loss of children, break down in marriages, cheating, or economic struggles. Black women cry because sometime love or society impel them to make choices that depreciate their self-worth, health and parental skills which is consequential to the development and success of all black people. Black women must continue to cry, because if black women stop crying and let anger force their hand, love would become recalcitrant to sensitive touches, children would become motherless and the streets would have new members on the edge ready to destroy the soul of America and black men. So cry black women, let your tears soak new meaning to the soil of this life, which will grow new flowers that will enlighten minds, so love and not violence or disrespect would rule the ground that produce loving black families.
