Black Women Need Love Too: Relationships, Self Love and Community
Stay Awake. Be Aware. Be Informed. Take Action.
“Stick and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you.” —Unknown
Black women are loud, ghetto, gold-digging sluts and bitches. They are angry, bitter, independent, and either prudish or super hyper-sexual hoes.
Do you know the origins of the many stereotypes that plague the Black community—especially Black women? Are you aware of the social constructs put in place to reinforce these stereotypes?
How detrimental are the effects of these stereotypes to Black women and their community?
Angry. Loud. Nagging. Insulting. Vindictive. Immoral. These are the words used and reinforced by the media, publishing, television, film, and music industries to describe Black women. What if I told you that we have been lied to? What if I told you that we have been bamboozled, and that words DO hurt, and that these words have not only hurt us individually but collectively as well? Would you believe me?
How did we get to this point, and why do we embrace these words, wearing and perpetuating them like badges of honor? Why do we find it so easy to disrespect the Black woman? Why do we disrespect ourselves? “What up, bitch? What up, hoe?” Where’s the love?
In this timely, lovingly but firmly offered book Black Women Need Love Too: A Book About Relationships, Self-Love and Community, author S. M. N. Jones exposes all the lies we have been told again and again and reveals some hardcore truths to empower the mind of every Black woman and man.
This book is perfect for every Black Teen and Adult, Woman or Man.
