True because no one showed them true admiration and respect at home as girls.   Really, nothing is ever going to change about this until more black girls have fathers that raise them and give them the attention they deserve to show them what they should look for as they mature.   That's the only thing that ever going to change this.

I guess it depends on how you see leadership I believe in leadership in my everyday life so I lead by example- I help people when I can... by telling them to cover there A$$ when I am in line at the grocery store. I also happen to be a part-time image consultant who offers fashion and image advice to thoes in need. And sometimes unsolitcitedOuch
So whoever want to write a letter to Beyonce and other females in the industry Im with you all the way.... and you can pm me if you need more support on ideas on how you can help improve the community


really, if you gave me unsolicited advice about "covering my azz", then i would cuss you out. that is extremely rude and judgemental of you.

seriously.

and don't give me BS about dressing modestly= instant respect. b/c it's not true, esp. for black women.

^^ Lmao....  I feel that.  Unsolicited advice/criticism is usually always a bad thing.  Usually the if you don't have anything nice to say and you weren't asked for your opinion you should shut up applies.

I also agree about the dressing modestly as a black woman doesn't get you respect.   There are some people who will never respect a black woman simply b/c of what she is.  Period.  However, I'm still not for azzez hanging all out either.

word and thanked. i've been fully covered, dressed professionally or what have you and still cat called at. 

if people/men want to disrespect women they will do so-- regardless of the woman wearing booty shorts or an abaya.

It's about respect for our damn selves. Seriously, when did it become ok to purposely dress like a stripper in public? But then we have the nerve to wonder y Brotha approach us like they do. No being modest won't make everyone respect u, but at the end of the day, do ur ass cheeks need to make THAT much of a statement??? Same goes

As much as I hate visible butt cheeks in public, you don't do that. Lmao you would get straight slapped by some of the ratchets round these parts and end up on worldstar nature.

Just let them be.

Random.

I notice a vast difference in the way men approach me compared to other girls who's wardrobes only consist of leggings, crop tops, and high waisted shorts. Two brothas this week were so kind about it when they approached me. I'm used to them being aggressive and saying unwarranted/offensive things but they were tiptoeing their words. I was impressed yall.

to the 1st bolded: i don't buy that that people who choose this way of dress automatically don't have respect for themselves. i'm sure that there are exceptions either way.

however, the uproar seems a cop out for the latter bolded to have a handy excuse to judge people, be disrespectful and sleep at night. 

cause those people could just as easily choose to be respectful as they did to cat call or feel the need to judge or call derogatory names.
