Black Girl Magic: An Ode To Our Superpowers





#BlackGirlMagic: The universal awesomeness that is black women.

The strength that black women possess is no secret within our own community. It has existed since the beginning of time, and has been sustained during the darkest nights, and even brighter days. In a world filled with cultural appropriation, stereotypes, and foolishness, it was only right that we put our CROWNS on full display. Simply put, black girls are the SHIT! Always have been, and dammit we always will be. #believethat

I personally sprinkle my magic, bask in the glory of my dopeness, and celebrate the fact that I am the SHIT on the daily. I do not care what type of day I am having, I always take a step back to adjust my crown, and remind myself that I possess #BlackGirlMagic. Black women are often times viewed as being the underdog who have to work twice as hard just to end up at the same place and space as their contemporaries. Please don’t cry for me or any of my sisters Argentina, I promise you that we are good over here! Pressure busts pipes, and trust me when I tell you that perserverance is our middle name, and we thrive when our backs are against the wall. In other words, WE STAY READY SO WE DON’’T EVER HAVE TO GET READY! This is a testament to the awesomeness that is #BlackGirlMagic

It’s only right that I highlight just a few of the things that make black girls magical. The fact that we are so damn EPIC made it beyond difficult for me to chomp my list down to size. Nonetheless here is my short list of why all the black girls across the world are straight up MAGICAL:

  1. Direct descendants of KINGS and QUEENS. #crownusbaby
  2. Ability to endure straight bullshit day in, and day out, but still come out on top! #winning
  3. Ingredients: Brown Sugar, Honey, Coconut Oil, and Gold. #wearedelishandworthourweight
  4. The sun kisses our skin, and doesn’t shrivel us like raisins. #melaninsuperpopping
  5. Maintaining a mindset of YES, even when the world says NO. #fuckthem
  6. Kinky curls, silky straight, cropped short, or braided up. #weFLY
  7. Walk around with the weight of the world on our shoulders, and NEVER topple over.  #balance
  8. Classy, cultured, and educated, but can ALWAYS take it to the streets if someone tries you. #peoplestaytryingus
  9. Stacking our paper, but always managing to get something fly for ourselves. wegotneeds
  10. Killing it in our professional lives, despite the odds being stacked against us. #theydontwantustobegreat
  11. Preserving the culture and pushing it forward, all while the world appropriates. #weaintnewtothiswetruetothis
  12. Slaying the scene anytime we step onto it. #cockyfresh
  13. Mother, daughter, wife, girlfriend, niece, aunt, sister, and friend. #EVERYTHING 

YEP……..this pretty much sums it up. We are magical baby, plain and simple!
