“Who Defines Black Women?”

As Black History Month approaches the Big Homie Dsoul, CEO of Family Grind Entertainment, sent me this great article about who defines black women today and where they get their identities from in today’s society. The article also goes on to discuss the modern role models that our young black women have to look up to and how the images and concepts that these women portray have an effect on the black youth in America. I find that this article and article like it are vitally important because it sheds a light on the reality of how the media and main stream America portrays black women and how so many positive black women are overlooked and overshadowed due to overtly raunchy and sex crazed entertainers that are praised with admiration and reverence. It’s a sad reality but a true sate of where we are as people, where talent is clouded with ass shaking and songs about giving dome. In 2012 it is now more important than ever to pay attention to how we are portrayed, because the further along time goes, the further detached we become from our history and who we are as a people. Below is a link to the Article iin full where you can read and judge for yourself.
