Where long distance friendships bridge the gap through cyber chit chat:)
Angry Black Woman
I had a conversation recently with a man in my life about the "Angry Black Woman," and he had the nerve (neck rolling) to say that I could be categorized as an ABW because I don't like stupidity and often get angered at adults displaying ignorance and lack of commonsense. I beg your pardon Sir! lol Just kidding but really the ABW has often been categorized as a black woman who is achievement oriented, kind of no nonsense, not particularly kind or compassionate but driven. I would admit that I am driven when it comes to things I am passionate about but by no means am I an angered woman who always is walking around with a frown on my face and my hand on my hips. I am not a tart-tounged, neck rolling, loud mouthed sistah. I am not ghetto-fabulous, I do not feel as though my life is grim and bleek and nor am I anyone's babymomma looking for a hand out or mad at the "Man" for my position in life. Today the ABW is so ingrained in our society that the tag gets slapped on the back of any black woman who is assertive or in a position of power. I must admit yes one of my biggest pet peeves is stupidity. I am angered when interacting with adults who feel as tough ignorance is bliss and common sense is optional BUT I am not an ABW.
2 Great friends. Living in 2 big cities...with big ideas about absolutely everything! J Genese and Minique are just your regular girlfriends...working on their careers, love life, and social life too, all the while keeping in touch through their daily "cyber chit chats", as they like to call them. Friends since elementary school and close since their days of Aquinas highschool, its safe to say that they've come along way together. But it wasnt until their friendship grew long distance that they've become the closest that they have ever been... .....and they owe it all to a little thing called email:)
