In a time like the present, WE need to continuously celebrate and perpetuate Black love.
It will be a long while, if ever, that the media sheds a flattering light on our bonds. We can’t leave it up to them anyway; they prefer to show brothers cheating and emotionally unavailable to sisters, yet happy with non-Black women, single [and often materialistic/sad/lonely/bitter] Black women, and violence, anger and turmoil instead of love and laughter and unity-the things that so many of us actually do in our real lives.
So I borrowed some lovely photos to share. I hope they make you smile like I did!

Contrary to popular belief, the Black fathers that aren’t being killed or imprisoned are supportive and PRESENT.
Earlier this month, I saw a Black dad with his two young sons at Ikea of all places! [For those of you who don’t know, Ikea is huuuge and there’s a lot of cool stuff to look at. So basically a child’s paradise! Haha!] But I heard one of the boys tell his father “you’re the best dad.” I just thought that was such a sweet moment that I got to witness.
