    GOOD STUFF GIRL. I feel you on every word. I love this:

    I’ve never aspired to be Miss America
    Nor were my goals to bring world peace
    Be judged by shallow vanity
    And a revealing two-piece bikini
    I will not tap dance in a top hat
    Or sing an emotional pop ballad
    I’m a disenfranchised black woman
    With ruff edges and a blood stained legacy

    Oh hell yeah, my sister, right on, right on. I have felt this way about pageants always, and especially as they relate to the African-American legacy. You have put it all together in such a beautiful and wonderful way....mad love to you for this, girl. Off the chain.

    Thanks Fam...
    Sometimes...I just look at this life and it's so disheartening...everyday I have to fight
    the stereotypes, ignorance and hatred..."being brown ain't easy" but at least God made me strong, wise
    and gave me a vision...I'll follow him...while the rest of this world is caught up on frivolous,
    irrelevant and often evil ambitions. Much love guys!... :)

    U are my Queen Nzinga, strong, regal black woman who bows before noone, just walks by with long graceful strides with her head held high with pride. No smiles.

    How many times have I told U I love your mind?

    Well here's 1 more, I love your mind.

    Very tight piece my sweet sister, I feel U totally on this 1 here.
