WOW! Perhaps had your recitation maintained the evenness with which the video began, I would have believed your "Mama failed YOU" apology to your young daughters as sincere. But 39 seconds in, you sped up and proceeded to run over your "baby girls" with the screaming of a wild woman, showing NOT humble regret for your parental failure in having taught them no fear and love of God or themselves, no Wisdom, Discernment and Thinking Ability from HIS Word the Bible and consequently, no knowledge of Satan, his wily destructive ways and how every "life survival skill" from God's own Mouth would enable them to see every calamity Satan could before them, save themselves and escape unharmed, but hot BLAME of their INEXPERIENCE in blindly passing along and suffering every penalty and pain in their natural desire for man's acceptance, to the extent of also blaming you like an innocent bystander angrily trapped in the fallout. In a sense, all you did in this 5-1/2-minute clip that I here have found 5-1/2 years after its upload was screamed BLAME at every black woman that "Your mama so failed you" you couldn't save yourselves as a people from all your bitching fornicating misleads on your own untrained thinking; and with bad examples and their permanent damning fruitage all around us daily like true Wisdom literally crying out in the street. --Proverbs 1:20-33; 22:3.

This is very nice, very well said I wish someone would have read this to certain women I know before they got themselves into the situations they are in now. However this is a message to all girls because mothers of all colors are neglecting their daughters by not teaching them this message that you have in this video.

@ChristianRose88 Actually, I recently read that non-whites are more likely to be abused by a family member, in Britain at least.

@sharonanony, thethingkid & anyone else who can't see the truth in these words of wisdom! Take a look at the most popular "rap/hip hop videos" on the market! How are the women dress? Aren't most of them black women and being called hoes and bitches? If any one need to go back to school, it would be the haters who are also calling "children" kids and see no difference in the meaning! A kid is a baby goat not a human child! Denial is a curse!

I could totally relate to this poem. Filling up an empty space because you question your worth & wanting to be loved. I can't change my past, but I sure can change my future. Thanks for the motivation & letting me know my self worth.

lol You're an idiot. Phenotypes among African peoples are the MOST diverse among ANY OTHER group of people on the planet. Go peddle your stupidity off some place else. Try a special ed group? Perhaps a vocational school filled with slow kids? lol

My mother is like what you say and it is good to her this even thought it is not from her. But I am glad to say my nature is beyond her. So that I can be more than that and be a true mother that teaches her daughters her true power and beauty. And thank God for my husband that saw that beauty in me and was wise to know my true worth and waited for Gods say and promise to be with him and not to desire my flesh but desire my heart.

Very encouraging! Thanks! This is truth spoken.....

This was so beautiful. So many young Black women really need to hear this. And Youtube really needs to set up a blocking feature on here. So that people who are ignorant (not to mention that their ancestors are from a country in Africa), could have a chance to save themselves from looking stupid on the Internet.

I'm from America - and this is based on my observation of White American girls - those Girls Gone Wild and Sex & the City examples are based on White Americans!!! You are not even an American, so don't claim that you know what I'm talking about.

@PorkChopMissPiggy It's understandable. Most animals have straight fur texture. Seeing a human who is so different from them would strike someone who has that in common with lesser animals would be weird. :)

Your words are so strong and beautiful. A slap in the face yet a caress at the same time. A perfect mix.

How moving! There's another component to this though: a black woman blaming herself for the excesses and lapses of black men. As a 'mixed race' girl, I saw how the black guys treated my blacker-looking friends: how they were awed & deferential to me but treated them like chattel. I was infuriated by the disrespect that my wise, educated and BEAUTIFUL friends endured by men who were often darker than tey were. We need to take the black man to task: he has failed us all.

This Implies, That Black Women are not Sexual Beings. And they only have Sex when men want it. What you want Lesbian DAughters. Sex is not from Empty Spaces all the time. It is a DRive, to Procreate that is Natural. This is too much Talk, based on Black women being ignorant about their sexuality. Black women are Naturally Smart, Please stop making the sound like puppets of men, with their bodies.

Malakayah, Your comment tickled me, as it very true! I have had nothing short of a positive experience being dark-skinned. A solid foundation of confidence is key - - especially during the earlier years. After all, you receive what you project.  Pe@ce & Blessings Indigo

Avoid White women for marriage. They are now becoming more skanky than the Black women. White girls are into Girls Gone Wild, Sex & the City, and screwing around w/ all guys at the bars/clubs. Even worse, "sex positive feminism" are advocating the term "slut" to empower 21st century women -- most are middle-class White ladies. Those feminists are idiots for trying to empower a male-dominated degrading term like "sluts." Black women - don't degrade yourself like the White woman. Stay pure!

8722974 Maybe, your friends were just not cute, it has nothing to do with you being mix, get the fuck out of here. The black guys including myself, don't be hating one over the other, because you know the old saying, no disrespect. I like all my beautiful black women from the lightest to the darkest. Blacker the Berry sweeter the juice. that is so true. lol no disrespect. Love all my beautiful black sistaz.

@sharonanony Generally I make it a habit not to respond to comments left here. But I had to say this poem is not about EVERY BLACK WOMAN OR GIRL. This is for the lost ones, this for the little girls and grown women I get letters from who have been abused, who don't feel worthy, who are sleeping with men trying to find love. And I won't even go into the women and girls suffering from my daddy left me hunger. I know that woman and that girl because at one time it was me. I am here to empower us.

love the response to sharonanony. She's not saying or implying that Black women are not sexual beings. She's saying Black women shouldn't treat their bodies like an amusement park, but like a temple.
