We’ve all said we’re sick of it, we don’t want to hear about it anymore, and we’re not going to talk about it—-it being “The Tragic, Scientifically Less Attractive, Unmarriable, Single Black Woman Narrative.” Now, media personality Ariana Proehl of KnowThisTV1 has declared an official death of the tired story.
The proclamation is right on point for the new year. What better time to let go of the things that hold you back like stories and statistics that tell you you don’t have a chance in this world? Much like the Black Woman’s Manifesto for 2012, Proehl says in the coming year we shouldn’t even give these ridiculous notions “the dignity of our side-eye!”
Check out the video and tell us what you think. Will you say RIP to the “Death of the Tragic, Scientifically Less Attractive, Unmarriable, Single Black Woman Narrative,” in the new year?
