*in the kitchen talking to a white male coworker*
Him: You sit over there? *points to desk of other black girl in the office*

What Mo’Nique is dealing with is what every black woman has dealt with in corporate spaces. You speak up about an injustice you deemed as aggressive and loud... even if you address it in the most classiest and calmest of ways. Smh— Mbaku’s Baby Muhva 👑 (@KLCHII) February 24, 2018
sometimes you gotta sacrifice to make a statement.
i guess natural hair is a trend now.
Women have been wearing these hairstyles in the real world but it’s deemed unruly & unkept in schools and the workplace. But now it’s becoming acceptable to recreate and wear in “the real world” because Black Panther is making headlines... 🧐— Broke And Fabulous ✨💰 (@Neidra) February 22, 2018

This teacher, Ms. Bishop from Lakeview Elementary in Sugarland, Tx complimented one of her student’s hair saying she loved it, but the little girl didn’t believe her. The next day, the teacher came to school with her hair done the same as her student so cute! pic.twitter.com/jdVc3eDIDq— J'Ardoin Janǽ (@JArdoin_814) February 2, 2018
the diary of a mad black woman.
Because I have a genuine heart and never want folks to dislike me I silenced my voice because who wants to be labeled a mad black woman just because you're unashamed of the knowledge you have?— BlackGirlGroup.com (@BlackGirlGroup) February 26, 2018
