The suggestion that black women aren't pretty strikes me as odd, especially coming from a culture where women go through lengths to make their skin tanner, their butts larger and their lips fuller. I learned as an adult and in my college life that being black often made me desirable as an exotic sexual being.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” “It’s what’s on the inside that counts.” “Beauty isn’t everything.” These phrases
"I’m in it to expand our view of blackness.”
Today I'm hoping that you, too, can see all that is right and wonderful about yourself, and that you can choose the words you think and say accordingly. With love. Build a beautiful word cloud. I promise it will help to build an even more beautiful you.

Before the age of 14, I was offered cunnilingus from strangers, followed for blocks and called every form of "slut" one can imagine.
My default mode is to see and focus on my flaws and imperfections. I'm starting to see a bit more.
They say beauty is all about symmetrical angles and lines and shit right? Well heres your your chance to see how you stack
Somewhere along the road to adulthood I discovered what being pretty could accomplish for me and I used it to my advantage. I found out that, no matter how much effort had to go into achieving it, I liked being pretty and better yet, thought of as pretty. It worked well for me.
