Self Hate Part III: What happened to being Black & Proud?

What happened to being Black & Proud? With taking pride in your community and culture? We’re not taking pride in our own accomplishments and successes.
I think sometimes we make it worse on ourselves. The whole Gabby Douglass hair fiasco was an embarrassing example of how we’re constantly turning on each other. People were really talking trash about this girl’s hair as she was competing for a gold medal.
Really?
That was a sad day on twitter for me. I hate to keep doing these self-hate posts but I keep finding more and more examples of it.
