Also while we’re talking black girls & obesity can we talk about higher rates of sexual assault, poverty, & trauma? Can we talk about eating disorders, different beauty aesthetics & genetics? Or is that too much to ask?
I’ve been seeing this topic on my twitter feed a lot today. People tweeting and retweeting like “why are black women do obese” “do black women just like eating more? WHY?!” “watch this video of people discussing why black women are so obese” “we need to do better and stop eating so much”
This is NOT the biggest issue plaguing black women. But it’s like pulling teeth to talk about education, safety, respect. But people will jump through hurdles to sit on the “black women just need to get with the program and stop eating so much soul food” panel.
The day they have a panel on black women & trauma will be the day the fucking world ends. Y’all think I’m playing.
