Those of you who know me realize how seriously I take my role. I saw my mama (and a few of her friends) do the same so it comes pretty naturally to me. It’s heartbreaking that Black “stay-at-home” mamas are constantly under attack. Often by other black women. So many buy into stereotypes about what our lives are actually like. Sigh. Too many think we’re lazy. Quite insulting! Contrary to popular belief many of us are smart, community oriented and often untraditional in lifestyle. Some of us are well off. Most are not. Frugal? Yes. Guess what? Many of us bring in an income alongside our partners. We often volunteer in our communities regularly. Our partners? Many of them work hand-in-hand with us doing housework, caring for our children etc.
ALL MAMAS WORK.
