Celebrate the Power of the Booty
Be proud to be you.
Don't ever let your quest to attract a black man drive you to try to squeeze your thick nose,your kinky hair, and that round bottom intowhite folks' beauty standards because they'll never, ever fit, no matter how hard you push and shove.
It's pretty obvious, after all, that God didn'tmake that Cindy Crawford mold with a sistah inmind.
But we spend an awful lot of time trying toget into it, don't we? We'll give our last dollar foradvice on how to flatten our butts, how to getrid of those "thunder thighs," how to slather on the best relaxers to get our hair the straightest it can possibly get and then beat the hell out of ourselves when Cindy failsto magically appear in our mirrors.
Get over it, girls. We are no more able to transform ourselves into bone-thin, blond-haired, blue-eyed beauties than she's able to transform herself into a dreadlocked chocolatehoney with dark brown eyes and an hourglass figure that'd make the Commodores leave Ms. "Brick House."
Besides, most black men would rather fatten up that bony-butt Cindy with a big plate of greens and cornbread than date her, because for them, to be too thin is a sin.
The simple fact is that a good black man will like you just the way you are big butt, thick thighs, blackness, and all. The sooner you accept and appreciate your unique beauty, the sooner it will be obvious that you are proud of being you. The sooner you carry yourself as if you are the fiercest creature to walk this earth since Foxy Brown, the sooner will come a black man who thinks the same about you.
