EXCELLENT article. I love the descriptive way you write. You paint such a clear picture of the Black woman's experience both from a physical and mental standpoint. Hearing "you're pretty for a dark girl/woman" has put white supremacy in my face far more times than I care to remember. Self-love has been a healer and I love that you included the French phrase below. I'm a forever fan of your writing!
