I never thought about what an American girl would look like.
I hate all beauty pageants.
Do Black women want to be considered the American Girl?
I have been thinking about the "American" title for Black people since lil dons election.
I live in America, but I find it hard to identify as American.
I think about swamp crawlers in the whitehouse, and I do worry that their disorganisation could leave the US open to terrorist attacks upon the people living in America. I live here.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
