I started this blog because I could not find one on the subject of creating a viable and positive African American culture, that benefits and protects African American women and their children. It is a subject that is rarely discussed in depth, but needs to be.
I believe that creating a new cultural paradigm for African American women and their children is not just preferable, but necessary for long-term survival. And I want to know what you think of the current African American “culture” and it’s affect on your lives as African American women.
For the record — and I will only write this once, if anyone needs to be reminded in the future, I will refer them to this first post — this blog was NOT created for the betterment of Black men, nor anyone else who is not an African American woman or girl. But as long as you are respectful and stay on topic, anyone of African descent (or who has a child of African descent) is welcome to post a comment.
That being said, I hope that everyone will derive something positive from this blog. And, hopefully, we as AA women will reach some sort of consensus on what our shared values, beliefs and traditions should be, if we are to create lasting stability for ourselves and our children, and improve our position as a group.
