Who determines whose a woman and who isn’t a woman? To clarify, why is it difficult for others to look at a Black woman and see her as a woman first?

The following is an excerpt from an essay I wrote in 2010:

I am more than the roundness of my bum.  I am a woman who happens to be Black.  I look in the mirror daily and I recognize the woman looking back at me.  I am wonderful and beautifully made.  I have worth and a brain.  My intelligence is what makes me special and worthy of respect.  My aspirations are what feed my drive to be a better person every second of the day.  My integrity draws others near.  I am a woman who happens to be Black. 

Sadly, this topic is still relevant. It’s that time again for us to Let’s Just Talk!
