11 Things Black Women Think About Every Damn Day

The mind of a black woman is a vast world filled with career goals, woke revelations, evasive love, beauty, marriage, awe, children, and spirit. Between the hustle and bustle of every day living, our minds are constantly racing with the past, present, and future.

Here is a brief examination into 11 ramblings that run through the mind of a black woman on a daily basis:

2. Fleeked Eyebrows

Fleeked Eyebrows

Let’s blame it on Peaches Monroe for making fleeky eyebrows a worldwide phenomenon and a daily obsession. And if you are out of the fleeked eyebrow club, we don’t trust you.

Black girls be like, she don’t even take care of her eyebrows how can I trust her to take care of our friendship?

It gets real.

3. White Privilege

White Privilege

How many of you walked into the office today to have Sally ask you 100 questions about how your grew your shoulder length hair into ass-touching twists?

How many of you walked into a boardroom or classroom this afternoon and saw no one else who looked like you?

How many of you heard another black man was shot by the police and had to hold you breath to make sure you didn’t recognize the name.

‘Nuff said.

4. Pregnancy

Pregnancy

For colored girls who dreamed of planned b when pull out wasn’t enough.

But seriously, how many times have you texted your friend like:

“My left breast feels heavier than my right, am I pregnant?”

“My period is two hours, 3 minutes, and 52 seconds late, am I pregnant?”

Pregnancy seems like this thing you’re always trying to avoid, or actively trying to achieve and each side of the coin brings unbelievable stress.

5. Beyonce

Beyonce

When you’re laying on your couch watching marathons of “Snapped” on Oxygen with a pint of ice-cream between your legs and an opened bottle of wine (no glass) on the floor, you think, I wonder what Beyonce is doing? Is she preparing to drop an album? Is she dancing for her life in the studio? Is she vacationing with Jay? Is she getting her lace front applied?

6. Sex Or Lack Of Sex

Sex Or Lack Of Sex

We may not talk about sex all day, but we’re definitely thinking about it. You know in the middle of the work day when your vagina gets a flashback of what happened last night? Whew.

Or, when you’re in the drought—for whatever reason: abstinence, virginity, or lack of options, and you feel like cobwebs are forming between your legs, and your vibrator just blew a fuse from overuse (true story), sex is on your mind.

7. How To Look Super Productive At Work, While Not Doing Sh*t

How To Look Super Productive At Work, While Not Doing Sh*t

It’s Friday and you just don’t give a damn anymore. But you ran out of sick/vacation/personal days, so it’s in the office for you today. So what do you do? Fake it until you make it. Spend 30 minutes fussing with the copier, or sit in the bathroom on the toilet (with a liner!) for 15. Type feverishly on your keyboard like you’re getting work done but you’re caught up in a gchat convo with your best friend.

8. How Annoying Our Mothers Are On Facebook

How Annoying Our Mothers Are On Facebook

You almost want to curse Mark Zuckerberg for opening it up to people not in college for this. Your mom improperly uses every emoji and acronym on Facebook and plasters that mess all over your wall.

This is Mom, remember me? Are you having a good day? LMAO😉

Like, whet?
