An Open Letter to Caribbean Men, From Caribbean Women | RH Reality Check

We do not have to smile for you. Our smiles are our own. Our lips are our own, and our smiles are a celebration of our happiness. We do not have to smile on command. We are not pretty, little, Black dolls whose smiles were painted on with red paint and a plastic brush. Sometimes, we’re busy. We’re busy thinking about geo-political trends, the next 10-mile run, or the latest cricket match. We’re too busy to be the smiling decoration that we, as women, are expected to be. Our faces can be thoughtful, angry, sad, peaceful, meditative, or bored. So stop, Caribbean men. Stop walking up to us, harassing us, and demanding that we smile. We do not have to smile for you. Our smiles are our own.

In a desperate attempt to save her life, she broke from his grip and ran into the garage to flee the home in her car. Allowing her panic to get the best of her, she forgot to grab her keys and couldn’t open the garage door. Alexander found one solution that could save her from her crazed husband. “I knew I had to protect myself,” she said. “I could not fight him. He was 100 pounds more than me. I grabbed my weapon at that point.”

Are Single Women Damaged Goods?

Are Single Women Damaged Goods?.

AFRICANGLOBE – Why is it so incredibly difficult to find a decent woman? I could understand if I lived somewhere rural and secluded like parts of Jersey, or Idaho- but I live in New York City. If I can’t find some proper, well educated, and self-respecting single women here, I can only assume that I will have worse luck anywhere else in the world.

Don’t get me wrong- there are some beautiful women in New York, but they all share a common flaw; they are all damaged goods.
