Finally, Black Women. Some Harmony!

The rest of us work,  wrap our hair every night, and send texts of affirmation to our friends before going to sleep.  We love each other despite our faults. On May 9, 2020, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott made an incredible statement.  They taught the world that black women are not just our anger. We are our voices. We are our beauty. We are our children.  We are each other.  Society, social media, and entertainment will brainwash you into believing we are better separated.  No, we are not.  We can be ourselves, and we can do it with each other.  So, right on Jilly from Philly & Ms. Badu. Right on.

Music Keep Us Sane.

Work has been easier at home when there is music to glide people from hour to hour of sitting stationary to stay safe. “I listen to music all the time. It was my therapy to get through the work day.” Insurance Adjuster Ebonee Coutee explained.  Sometimes, we are not going to work with the best attitude, and music allows us a chance to calm the storm before dealing with others.  Britainee Johnson, a Pharmacy Assistant, and deals with families every day during this pandemic, and music has helped a lot:  Music helps me regardless. I listen to music every day at work. How I am feeling determines the music I play, but it definitely helps me get through the day.”

Come Back to the Core.

If you are wondering why you do not have these, it is not your fault.  Recent generations have not had very clear core values established for various reasons.  It has been kind of difficult to lay out values when you are constantly being judged or criticized for what you believe.  That does not mean you can not start today with coming back to your middle. Come back to your core values.

Help Your Children To Find Their Thing.

Tweet (ThySistas.com) How we raise our children, changes throughout the generations. Back in the day, after school and during high days and holidays, youngsters were not cooped up in their rooms on Social Media. They were out playing in the yard and local streets. They were expected home when it got dark, or when they […]

Come and Listen WITH Me.

Jodeci started with the best intentions in their song asking for a gorgeous woman to simply having a conversation to build to something greater.  I wonder what happens, however, after she comes and talks to him. Will he hear or will he listen?  Will he accept what she says even if he does not agree? Will he practice empathy?  Who knows.  If he does, he is one step closer to closing the gap between men and women that has plagued us for too long.

We love our city, its culture, and our celebrations. I shouldn’t have to consider staying home because I don’t want to encounter the tourist that in the name of fun crap on my place I call home. If you are having some kind of feud it would be best to find a non-violent way to resolve such, and please do not bring it with you to New Orleans. As Mardi Gras approaches I’m still excited and looking forward to a great season. I just hope natives enjoy themselves without the violence, and tourist refrain from bring violence with them and forgetting how to use a restroom.

They fulfill a fantasy that most of us will never experience in our lives.  I know it is much easier to criticize these women for their choices, but is it the best thing to do?  Does it help us as a sisterhood progress forward?  Consider supporting these women and helping them understand that we do not need their boobs, their thongs, or details about their sex life. We just need whoever they truly are to shine through.

There are areas around the city of New Orleans that you may find to be a bit quieter, and you can drive into the city when you want your fix. Kenner is just down I-10, and you will find the residential area to be quieter. Visit is not even 20min away when you want to enjoy what New Orleans is culturally. Our music is not a fix, nor a fad…it’s a part of who we are. You are always welcomed to join us, but leave our soul intact.

Whether you’re a fan or not, there are tons of reasons to love Beyonce.  Her spirit and energy is unmatched (as it should be) and the legacy that she will most definitely leave behind is to be commended and appreciated in advance. 

Cardi B I Tried to Root for You.

She might want to invest in a publicist she trusts and learn discretion in her speech. Furthermore, being a woman keeping it real doesn’t justify horrid behavior. It doesn’t justify drugging and raping a human being. Just as a woman is not an object for prey…neither is a man…no one should be treated that way. As of now, I can’t be a Cardi B fan. She has to come into herself more for my taste. Just as I was not able to look past the behavior of certain male artist, I will not be a hypocrite and look past her actions. I wish her the best, and plenty of elevation…I just can’t support a human being drugging and harming people. I’ve survived too many kinds of violation.
