Dear black men & boys;
You don't have to be muscular, fit, toned, have clear skin, a big dick, listen to rap music or hip-hop. You don't have to be a "thug" or be tough, you don't have to be aggressive, demanding, you don't have to fit into this tiny little box the world has told you. You can be yourself. Do not think you're not a man, or a "black man" if you don't look or act a certain way. You are just as worthy to someone else. Onto every so hard on yourself. You are loved.
SN: I had to remind my mom yesterday that she should never down play her blackness. That she was made from brown sugar and honey and that she should love her hair and the way it grows towards the sun. That she should embrace her #taino features. That she is one of a kind, beautifully made. #loveyourblackness #wokebae
