As a young single black woman, I have to say that I'm NOT fearful of the "consequences" of success... Quite the opposite!

I think society as a whole is doing a disservice to young black women in general by promoting what I call the MPPLFS ---"Mass Propoganda Paranoia of Lonely Future Syndrome" (formerly known as the Waiting to Exhale Syndrome for the Baby Boom generation)

What a crock of shhh!
We are pressured, and I mean PRESSURED to stress over such menial (imo) things....can't we just enjoy LIFE!!! Damn!

I'm enjoying mutually beneficial, platonic, friendships with my black male peers (something that we are taught to believe doesn't exist)as well as others males and females of many ethnicities/nationalities..these are the important things in life yet we're encouraged to devalue them.

Eff the gender gap paranoia!!



"For some time now, the inequalities that are embedded into the American system have bothered me. As they are becoming progressively worse and it is clear that the government's priorities are not on bettering the quality of life for all of its people, but rather on expanding its own power, I cannot, in good conscience, salute the flag,'' Toni

If life isn't what you want it to be, under your control, then what are you waiting for?
