Celebrating the Strength and Resilience of Black Women Today

In today's society, being a black woman comes with its own unique set of challenges and triumphs. We have fought tirelessly for our voices to be heard, our stories to be told, and our experiences to be acknowledged. However, there are instances when individuals make choices that can set us back, perpetuating harmful stereotypes and undermining our progress. One such recent incident involves Carlee Russell, whose actions have caused disappointment and frustration within the black community. Despite this setback, it is crucial to remember that our strength and resilience will always prevail.

One of the ongoing battles faced by black women is the lack of media representation. Our stories, achievements, and struggles are often overlooked or misrepresented. This lack of visibility perpetuates harmful stereotypes and limits the opportunities available to us. It is disheartening to see that even in today's progressive society, we still have to fight for our rightful place in the media landscape.

Carlee Russell's Actions:

Carlee Russell's recent false claim of being kidnapped is not only a personal betrayal but also a setback for black women as a whole. By fabricating a story that garnered significant media attention, she perpetuated harmful stereotypes about black women being dishonest or attention-seeking. This incident reinforces the negative narratives that have plagued us for years, making it even more challenging to break free from these stereotypes.

While Carlee Russell's actions may have caused frustration and disappointment, it is essential to remember that her choices do not define the entire black community. We must continue to uplift and support one another, celebrating our achievements and amplifying our voices. It is through unity and resilience that we can overcome setbacks and continue to make progress.

Despite the challenges we face, black women have made significant strides in various fields, including politics, entertainment, business, and activism. We have become trailblazers, breaking barriers and shattering glass ceilings. Our contributions to society are invaluable, and it is crucial to celebrate our achievements and highlight our stories.

Being a black woman today is a complex and multifaceted experience. While setbacks like Carlee Russell's actions can be disheartening, they do not define us. We are a resilient community, continuously pushing boundaries and demanding the recognition we deserve. By supporting and uplifting one another, we can overcome these setbacks and continue to make strides towards a more inclusive and equitable society. Let us celebrate the strength, resilience, and achievements of black women today, and work towards a future where our voices are heard and our stories are told with authenticity and respect.

before cancer.....

Before my breast cancer diagnosis, I was incredibly shallow. I was obsessed with my appearance and always striving to live up to the model image I had created for myself. I even dreamed of posing for Playboy one day. But after a double mastectomy, I am now so self-conscious that I can hardly recognize myself. It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
