Quotable Quotes

"I don't make a distinction between BET's exploitation of Black women and the exploitation of Black women by those who use the War on Black women as a promotional tool."

Very good quote Miriam. Good thing that people are beginning to notice the anomalies in these so called movements.
Real good advice is always free. Anything you have to pay for has to be looked at with suspiscion, unless you are looking for casual entertainment.
That is why you have 12 step programs and other recovery programs that are FREE. And they do a much better job than professional therapists.

Grata,

I actually imagined there would be one alredy. If not by all means start one.


Step One;

Accept that you are physically a black woman and you are not responsible or have control over how the world interpretes your nature.

Think up some steps too.

Grata and Miriam,
You guys are brilliant. Come up with those steps. I may find something useful to improve myself :)

Miriam,
The WAOD's quote should be entered in the best quotes book.
