    we tend to feel that we're better than each other
    i'm talkin color
    we black women feel that we're better than all others
    and white women, asian women, latina women, etc
    feel that they're better than the next, too
    which may be good for self-esteem...
    i guess
    but what we tend to overlook is our commonality
    we are all women
    we each have problems with our men, our children, our mothers...
    estrogen, period, menopause, miscarriage, abortion,
    love (or lack thereof), loneliness, proud of our bodies,
    ashamed of our bodies, child rearing, faith in God,
    there are millions of more issues
    that we all have experiences with and/or have a stand on
    and no woman is better than the next...
    each race has seen examples of very strong women
    and very weak women
    i have peronally been blessed to learn from strong women
    of varying races in my lifetime
    this month, lets reflect on how we can be stronger and wiser
    and be there for each other along the way
    regardless of race
    let's unify for once!

    Amen!

    You have certainly shared a piece of truth here--we often don't think in those terms where commonlaity is espoused instead of differences--well done!
