"15yrs on and I’m still painted “angry” in meetings when I express an opinion. They’ll forever stay intimidated at the sight of a successful Blackman/woman."

@Kaksy77:

"It's the sad reality we are faced with as black ppl. Here in the states, in some stores they will follow you like you're about to steal something. As a black woman in a caucasian dominated industry, I have to work 10 times as hard to prove myself. I thank God for blessing me!"
