Goin In: Unity — If we as a people ever get that one right, we will free ourselves.

Despite the decades of being taught differently, we have the power to unite, love, and support each other. I believe it will be the women, black women, who will achieve the goal of Unity in the black community. 


As enslaved people and throughout our American history, we were taught to act as crabs in a barrel, to pull each other back once one reaches the top. Jealousy, envy, and mistrust have been ingrained in our hearts and minds to the point that we refuse to support each other. Instead of being happy for a sister’s success, we spread lies about how she got there. Instead of reaching back to pull another sister up, we move on as if only we should be up there.


 It’s a bitter past. But you know who can make it better? We can. 


We, black women, are envied for our bodies, our hair, our lips, and our booties. We are envied for our rich melanin that keeps our skin wrinkle-free. We are envied for our strength. We are envied because we collectively have the power to elect presidents! 


On this same topic of Unity, I had the brainchild idea to create a new group on Facebook called Jazzy Babes. It’s a group for black women who are trendsetters, fashion-conscious, and confident in themselves. Women of all ages are represented, but especially women who know who they are and how they want to be represented in the world. 


Members include black female business owners, fashionistas, influencers, and those interested in the furtherance of black women. The group is private because we want to break bread and share with like-minded sistahs. I hope you’re lucky enough to be invited by an existing member.
