Angry Black Girls United

Inspired by the blog Angry Asian Girls United.

This blog is for Black women all over the Diaspora, to express ourselves, to have our voices be heard.

We are not your "sassy" Black women.

Hey, just a random question: How did you feel when the actress for Vivian Banks (Janet Hubert-Whitten) was replaced with a black woman of a lighter skin tone later on (Daphne Maxwell-Reid)?

   It irritated the hell out of me. I didn’t even like the new Vivian. Old Vivian had better acting skills which made her character all around more enjoyable. -whackedup.

"Donation to off-set the funeral expenses for Joan Colbert and Veronica Roach.

Joan Colbert was very active in the Long Branch community and mother to every child she encountered. She was a foster mother to Veronica and took care of her from birth. Veronica was a bright, beautiful 10 year old. Both will be missed greatly.

Due to the sudden and expected nature of this event we are asking for any contribution you donate.”

The Monmouth County Prosecutors Office needs your help in solving the gruesome double slaying this past Friday of a 62-year old Long Branch woman and the 10-year old girl she was raising.

The Asbury Park Press reports that

autopsies have determined that the deaths of a Long Branch woman and the 10-year-old girl she was raising were homicides.

Colbert and the 10-year-old were found dead Friday in a first-floor apartment in a home on Lippincott Avenue after police were called at 5:22 p.m., reporting suspicious circumstances there.
The Prosecutor’s Office declined to release a cause or time of death, or to say if authorities are searching for suspects or have someone is custody.

The Roach and Colbert families would greatly appreciate any and all donations.

Help if you can, and send this out loud and far.

Go Sista! Ballerina Sets Record as the First Black Female Soloist at the American Ballet Theatre

Almost every day, there is a story that perpetuates and reinforces negative stereotypes and ideas about Black women. Many young girls are exposed to these images and they become so normative that these young ladies emulate what they see.  Whether it is reality TV shows or music videos, positive images of Black women in popular culture are hard to find. The reality is that there is no such thing as a monolithic Black woman and Misty Copeland is proof of that.

Misty Copeland is a young woman who is defying stereotypes and taking the ballet industry by storm. The beautiful and graceful Black ballerina is also making history. At the age of  30, Misty Copeland is the first black female in over 20 years to be a soloist at the American Ballet Theatre. Her journey is an inspirational one that emphasizes her tenacity and her unwillingness to give up and quit.  [Continue reading at Naturally Moi.]

You are beautiful. You are powerful. You are intelligent. You deserve to be happy and fulfilled. You deserve to live a life filled with wonder and joy. Be proud. Demand what You deserve as a Black Woman. You have a right to Your desires and Your dreams. Surround Yourself with people who will support that.
