Woman, who are you?

Are you someone who gives up and quits? Is failure not an option for you? Do you try too hard? When someone hurts you, do you make them prove their love? Does your passion drive you? Can you forgive those who hurt you? Would you consider yourself a innovator? Are you a giver or a taker?

Internalized Racial Beauty-Shaming 

I love the infinite shades of a woman’s skin. 

There are so many different pigments and highlights; all are beautiful. From pink pale to blue-black, every shade should be uplifted for its uniqueness, not broken and shamed. 

As a Black woman, I cannot ignore the Memes and cyber bullying against women who are dark-skin.

Dear non-Muslims, I’m Sorry.

There are so many words that I can share in regards to the importance of this post, but I think reading it provides enough insight to its purpose and value.

Thank you Scottish Muslimah for speaking out against the stereotypical discrimination that Muslims face, and for creating such an insightful post!

You are such a strong advocate, and I appreciate your voice and your purpose in educating those who have a bias against Muslims!

“I’m sorry.” They said. For the umpteenth time. It occurred to them that, in fact, they had nothing to be sorry for but if they didn’t say it, life would be much harder.

Dear non-Muslims,

I’m sorry that innocent people all over the world have been killed.

I’m sorry that the killers associate themselves with my religion.

I’m sorry that these terrorists groups are somehow being funded and are able to exist.

I’m sorry that people have been marginalised and ostracised to the extent that they were able to be radicalised.

I’m sorry that Muslims who are killed by terrorists get little to no coverage in the media.

I’m sorry that you don’t understand my religion.

I’m sorry that you think I am responsible for any act of terror because people who carry out those acts claim to follow the same religion as me.

I’m sorry that you don’t…

Quotes for Life 

“Where after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Test they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in, the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works.

Welcome everyone!

Today I want to jump right in and talk about this new blog I came across. The author goes by the name of Pinkspen and the name of the blog is LADYHOOD. LADYHOOD advocates self-love, peace and equality for all women. The reason I love this blog so much is because if anyone knows me, I am one for all of us to unify and help one another instead of berate and bully each other. As Pinkspen introduces herself and gives the run down of what her intentions with her writing are, she also establishes that she wants to first and foremost be a mentor to women who would seek her advice.

“Talking to a stranger, someone who does not know you (a mentor), can reveal those inadequacies that those closest to you, cannot. I want to be that mentor for you!” Pinkspen said in her blog.
