2017 Is the Year Of Black Men Praising Black Women

  Harlem-based rap duo, Mankind lets the world know they love and appreciate black women in their latest project titled ‘Chocolate Eclair’. Featuring images of the most iconic black women in history, the two-and-a-half minute video reminds us of the powerful legacy from which we all come. This is in line with recent events after Kofi Siriboe made a very public proclamation of love for black women (namely his mother) and didn’t let an angry Twitter troll stop him in the process. Clapping back to his antagonist by saying: love & respect to all the good mums. i’m honoring my mom, my sisters and their bold, black skin. they deserve my specificity.

I know that the most valuable weapon you can give your daughter to fight back against these deterrents is a strong, independent mindset. I know that it’s important for women, especially Black women, to get an education and stay focused on their dreams and goals. I know all of this. I also know that when Black women reach that pinnacle of success – that point of pride we all aspire to – and still remain unmarried our accomplishments are pushed aside. All people see is a single woman (who must be miserable). Our mothers look at us and ask… Why aren’t you married?
