Thanks for such a beautiful and timely quote. There are so many intelligent and capable black women in this world and especially on the black blogosphere.

With there being so many intelligent black women out there, there is no plausible reason why women like Citoya do not have a support network of black women on which to rely.

Very disappointed to hear that Rev. Al did not show up at the meeting. But perhaps this is a wakeup call that we (black women) need to have in place a strong network and support system so that when things like the rape at Dunbar Village occur -- BOOM we're there with emotional, financial and practical support.

There are so many of us with advanced degrees that don't apply our learned and costly knowledge to ourselves and to our people.

As a black woman, what's the point in having a degree in psychology for example and you don't use your degree to counsel or encourage black women in your sphere of influence.

professor tracey, thank you. your quotes are my daily snack; that provide me the pick me up to chuckle, realize the truth of it and carry on, powerfully. thank you.

tryexcellence, you just hit the nail on the head.

my response---collectively we don't in deeds love, accept and respect ourselves. yet. we continue to nurture, feed and give our magnificent life source to everyone but ourselves. collectively, we have not yet embraced the truth we know as individuals, some of us anyway, which informs us that if we don't love, accept and respect ourselves; then no one else will.

our history in this country and our relationship to and with our men corroborate this fact.

i am beginnig to transfer my blog from typepad. my focus and purpose is clearly defined in my first blog. it is my purpose to add my insight with action. our sisters are suffering. we must see the need and fill it for ourselves. i would like to partner with like minded people to be the change. time is of the essence.

let us be in touch.

blessings all...
