Black Queen-$40-Sex Magick -Huhh??? Maintain Your Temple

“…Black Women are beautiful. The media has reduced them to nothing but booty walking around, but Black Women are more than that. They are friends, lovers, and the mothers of civilization” (Natalie, 2008).

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence where I always seek to provide you with exquisite cranial repertoire. I feel that as grown women and being the mothers of civilization, we have to protect our young ladies. You have heard many say that what the industry and media portray affects our black girls. At times people do things and follow trends simply because they did not know. Have we really taught our young ladies what Black Queens are or have we left it to the media? When I was growing up, I got up every Saturday morning to watch Teen Summit on BET. I learned that my black has always been beautiful and that Black Girls Rocked way back then, and that my creative talent should be expressed on the highest level. I listened to Yo Yo say “my name is Yo Yo, I’m not a ho”. Queen Latifah asking people…who are you calling a bitch? But my my my how things have changed…

According to Urban Dictionary, a Black Queen is a beautiful, respected African American woman that is confident and selfless. Now we will move on to the “$40”. Urban Dictionary explains that 40 or 50 is described on the hoe stroll as $40 for head and $50 for the warm apple pie. Black Queen and hoe stroll don’t blend well, but yet….some are trying to make that oil, water, and bleach mixture.
