    I read There Eyes Were Watching God in 11th Grade......according to Zora Neale Hurston....black women are the "mules of the earth", meaning they have thick skin, considering all the bs they had to through for 500 years, and pass that persistence on to their daughters.......... I don't think it justifies disrespect, but I think it makes the case why suicide rates are so low

    It does as well the past.

    Black women were raoed, had to see their daughters raped. Husband whipped, sons whipped and sold and still lived life.

    Even growing up hearing stories of your single mom grandma making like a dollar a hour providing for four kids as she had diabetes and high blood pressure but never gave up.


    Black women resilant strong :noah:

    black people despite living in america are overall probably the most confident and self assured I don't know where we get it from but it's rare to see the stereotypical nerdy kid from white culture with us. I grew up in a majority black neighborhood and I remember clearly I would have the:scusthov: :dahell: faces even as a little kid watching white tv shows and how the kids were acting and the school life. don't get me wrong there's still cliques and a general hierarchy but nobody was safe from catching a fade or getting roasted. there just wasn't a huge focus on status. if you was cool people messed with you no problem

    but I'm getting off topic:whoa:

    Breh I know you mean well, but shouldn't it be low. Maybe its just the way the title is, but I don't think it needs to be higher right? :leostare:

    Look at the amount of bullshyt black people, in general, have put up with historically and still rise above it all - it's a testament to resiliency.
