I've heard many women these days spout the claim that they're Independent Women. But can black women truly claim this because the black struggle has always had black women in the forefront? Is there a difference between being so-called independent and just being simply responsible? If a man has a job or pays his bills is he also independent.. or just responsible? Is independent womanhood valid for black women or simply a part of the white feminists reality? I'd like to know your thoughts.
