Black Women, I lost my hair because of worry and now I've lost my woman too


Christine has shared her personal story how she lost her hair after losing her mother to breast cancer.   She was in a lesbian relationship for many years and her ex-lover moved out and refused to have any further association with her.  She's honest enough to admit she thought her ex-lesbian partner really cared, much more than the mother she lost to breast cancer, but she finally discovered who her ex-lover really was, after she reminded her she was no longer young and pretty.  After she lost her hair, her ex-lover told her she looked even worse than she already was.  Now, she does not know how to properly grieve after losing her mother and hates herself for thinking a woman could fill the void of giving her the love, her mother never gave her.  Her ex-lover was even there for her in the hospital room when her mother was dying of breast cancer and she vowed she would never leave her.   Christine says she feels like a failure and hates herself for even being a lesbian. Christine wants to know how to get over her lesbian lover and grow her hair back.

Hello Christine, thank you for contacting SoulsofBlackWomen.com and thank you for sharing your story.  We are aware you have been dumped by your ex-lesbian lover after you lost her your hair and most importantly, your dear mother.  You know, a lot of us black women have lost our mothers long before they died of a disease.  Let us be more clear, a lot of black women have not loved their daughters how they have loved and cared for their sons, so we've had to teach ourselves how to become women, the best way we know how.  Therefore, don't blame yourself, there are many black women who have became lesbians, because they longed for their mother's love, which is a big mistake.   

So now, let us help you with your problem.  Your ex-lover may have pretended to be there for you when your mother was dying of breast cancer while having hatred in her heart.  Now, that you've lost your hair, it's just an excuse for her to leave you.  Didn't you tell us, she was already putting you down for your age and appearance?  Therefore, you must learn to love yourself and forgive yourself for looking to women to give you the love and encouragement your mother never gave you.   Begin to picture yourself bedside your mother in the hospital without your ex-lover being there and begin praying and telling God you love and forgive your mother.   Now, you sent us a photo (not the above photo) of yourself and we see a very beautiful woman.  All you have to do is accept yourself as beautiful and realize age is nothing but a number.   There are 50 year old women and older who are more youthful than 20 year old women, believe it or not.   

As for your hair, go to a professional and let them look at your hair.  You must allow them to regularly shampoo and condition it.  Go seek medical advice for depression and possibly, your doctor can prescribe a medication that can help with your nerves.  Then, in a few months time, you may see your hair begin to grow.  Many black women lose their hair, because of a nervous condition, but-it has nothing to do with them not being beautiful, it's just that they cannot deal with a lot of stress, so their hair begins to fall out.  You just happen to be one of those women, but don't put yourself down for it.  One of these days, if your ex-lover happens to lose her own mother, she will learn what it feels like to endure deep depression and then, you can forgive and be there for her, if she wants it.  However, we would encourage you to never go back to her for a relationship, because from what you are telling us, it was a very unhealthy one.  One of these days, God will send the right person to you and it could be a good man, you never know.  

God bless you Catherine and keep reading SoulsofBlackWomen.com.

Black Women, my son got shot to death after a dispute, no one cares



Sheila wrote SoulsofBlackWomen.com sharing with us about her son's death.  Sheila told us her son was a good child and worked very hard, but he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  After her son's death, she says she has lost friends and her best-friend has been going around the neighborhood telling people her son died because he was a drug-dealer, but she says her best friend is lying.  She raised her son the right way and he did not sell drugs.   Sheila does not know why black women have turned on her, after finding out about her son's death in the news.  She says although she lost her ex-husband to a white woman, black women have become her worst enemies.  She has had to deal with her son having a bad reputation after his death and even have had to face her son's killers in court.  She does not know how to love herself and feels like a failure after being ostracized by black women who have gossiped as though she was a bad mother who never disciplined her son.  She shares his father did not even come to his son's funeral and married his white girlfriend on the day of the funeral.

Dear Shela, thanks for contacting our journalists, we really care about what you are going through.   Let us start off being very honest with you, many black women are not united as they used to be and this is one of the reasons why many black men have left us for white women and even other races.  However, you must make a wise decision to love yourself and forgive them who blame you for your son's death.  Even if he was a drug dealer, it is not your fault, because we are very sure you raised your son to do right.   Now, you must realize there are still some good sisters; however, the reason why we have it so hard is because many of them refuse to stick together.   Therefore, we want you to start a support group for all mothers who have lost sons to violence.  Learn to ignore those who are ignorant and obviously do not have a life.   Forgive them and begin to be good to yourself and help those who are in a lot a pain like yourself.   

As for your ex-husband refusing to attend his son's funeral, but marry on the day of his homegoing, he will reap it.  All you have to do now is love Sheila and focus on the good things about your son and use his memory to encourage young men in the black community to love and respect themselves and each other.  Since many black women are not giving you the respect and consideration for your grievance, you might as well do good for young black men who will need a mother figure to teach them how to do better in life and say no to crime.  Realize many black women who do not love you have missed out on a good person and even the ex-man in your life has missed out on a good black woman.  God bless you Sheila and thanks for reading SoulsofBlackWomen.com.

Why Gospel Artist, Kirk Franklin is a Positive Mentor For Black Women


We never heard gospel artist, Kirk Franklin's testimony.  He allegedly shared how he has been unwanted by his family members: father, mother and grandmother.  Yes, this is why his music is so universal for Christ, because it hurts so much when your own race and relatives hurt you.  Therefore, many of you black women can relate with Kirk Franklin and now realize many of us who did not have a father and did not have a mother's love are not alone.  Souls of Black Women love Kirk Franklin!
 
So many black families always like to falsely accuse one person for staying away when the real root of the problem is them.  How can anyone come around, if you don't want them?  Many of us black women should really celebrate Kirk's music, because it takes a strong man of God to admit he has always been unwanted by his relatives, allegedly.

If you recall, we did a previous article about this young woman's death.  The police officers in this case, allegedly claim Alesia Thomas was resisting arrest, but there is no excuse to ever beat her for it.  We are sure the police academy trains their students not to beat citizens, but if not, they need to start including lessons against police brutality in their courses.

According to KTLA.com, officers from the Los Angeles Police Department were sent to Alesia Thomas’ home in the 9100 block of South Broadway Avenue to investigate a possible child abandonment report on July 22.

Thank God, justice will be served, because it is very wrong for any police officer to harm and kill a human being.  Another thing, we notice the black community mostly focuses on police brutality against black men, but it happens to black women a lot too and we need to encourage more equality when it comes to that issues.  It's more difficult a lot of times when it comes to black women, because too many black women are against each other and support the black male in many cases.

Victims of East Cleveland murders identified: Why are there serial killers killing black women? | Souls of Black Women

souls of black women-cleveland black women found dead

Sisters, here are a few young black women found dead in East Cleveland whom have been identified by police. Why is are their serial killers in Cleveland who murder black women? We are not just speaking of Cleveland Ohio, but also elsewhere, it seems as though there are a few black men who purposely kill black women. This reminds us of the Grim Sleeper case in Los Angeles. In a 5 year time span, there have been two black men who allegedly murdered black women. Can this explain so much hatred against our sisters, do some black men hate us this much?


According to FoxNews.com, their bodies were found last week along with that of another woman in a dilapidated East Cleveland...

Woman accused of killing Douglasville man

 

Sisters, we cannot understand how this 32-year-old woman could be smiling in her mugshot, because a man is dead.   Sahara Fakhir is accused of stabbing 66-year-old Jerry Wheeler, a mechanic.   Now we do not know if this was an honor killing or what, but for whatever reason, it's very wrong to murder anyone.

According to MyFoxAtlanta.com, Fakhir lived just a few houses away from Wheeler. Now, she's expected to be charged with murder. Her motive for the crime, however, remains a mystery.

In the meantime, we certainly hope Fakhir repents for taking the life of this man.  May Wheeler's soul rest in peace.

Sisters, as you know Lauryn Hill was accused of tax invasion.  Now she is about to serve a 3 month prison sentence for that crime.   Because Lauren Hill has educated many black women through her music, we should be ready to embrace her again as soon as she is released from prison.  Let us not forget how great she still is, although she was convicted of a crime.
According to tmz.comthe FCI is a "minimum security type facility" where inmates live in "barracks type" housing.

In the meantime, we will keep Lauryn Hill in our prayers.

Why do many Black women hurt each other, after facing so much discrimination?



Possibly, the question should have been 'why do black women hate each other?'  Either way, you put it, hate or hurt, it is very confusing as to why there are many black women who do so.   Some of us have faced racial discrimination with those whom claim to be are best-friends and who may have once called themselves our sisters and now they are our worst enemies.  Maybe now we can comprehend why many black men have not desired to be with us, because if those black women cannot care enough about another black woman they have offended, then there is no way for many black couples to remain together.

Often times, many black women may have offended you much worst than other races.  Where does this come from?  Does this come from how we were rejected by our own mothers?   Some of our sisters whom have went to prison, no longer had their best-friends whom were black women to be there for them.   Some of our sisters whom endured nervous break-downs experienced their best-friends whom were black women neglect and mistreat them very bad. afterwards. Some of our dear sisters have experienced whom they call their god-sisters lie and never even admit to it and yet complain about racism and how much the black men don't want us.   Where did this come from, sisters?  Why do many of our dear sisters enjoy the emotional distress of another black woman and yet complain about us being rejected by our American society?   The reality is dear sisters, we can no longer blame the black men whom have shunned us, because many of them have been just as neglected  and rejected by many black women just like many of us.    Let's be honest, the majority of our sisters have not been in unity for many years.   Many of them have kissed us like Judas Iscariot, after hurting us and yet complain about racism and yet will not admit to offending us nor apologizing for what they have done.  Therefore, we must go to the scripture found in Matthew 5:44 and be obedient when it says, But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you...  However, let's not continue to lie and place most or all of the blame on black men whom date or marry outside of their race and let us not continue to complain about racial discrimination if we cannot be remorseful for offending another black woman who used to be a best-friend, a 'so-call' god-sister, a relative or whomever they were to us at one time.

Sisters, we cannot continue to complain about racism and black men whom no longer desire to be with us, if many black women won't even care how they have hurt and hated us.     The truth is, many black women have killed other sisters before they died physically through the emotional distress they caused them throughout their lives.  Yes, many black women have torn down other black women and there is no one to blame but them for what we do not have as a whole.

Black Women, Atlanta Disappointed after murders of Mother and Daughter


Sisters, the family of this late beloved mother and daughter are allegedly disappointed with the Atlanta Police Department.  They feel Shatikey Griffin and her daughter Demiya would possibly still be here, if police did their job, differently.  Allegedly, police did not serve the warrant for Griffin's ex-fiance at least 24 to 48 hours earlier.

According to MyFoxAtlanta.com, Chief Turner's response in his own words after Griffin's family met with him is: 'the fugitive team had the weekend off and the warrant was signed on a late Friday.'  It shouldn't be a question if the squad should have the weekend off.  There should be enough funds to have officers on duty to handle crime 24 hours days, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year, including holidays.  We certainly hope they file a lawsuit, because it's just not right.

Our condolences go out to the Griffin family and we are sincerely praying for them.
