a few months have passed and i have not wished my blog a happy birthday.. wow how time flies! lol, i am actually a caring person who never forgets birthdays but some how, i let this one slip my mind.

my wish is to get to know everyone who reads this blog and hear…

Is it because we are ashamed to be black or is it because we don’t want our future children to go through the same stereotypes that we go through today? Is it because we don’t see beauty in our culture/heritage?
We rarely ever see people of a different race posting babies of other races as ‘hashtag future baby’. It is kind of embarrassing that we place ourselves in…
