Who is Brown Sugar?
Hello Everyone, I just want to share! For Her Skin Tone tells a Deeper Story than what you Think!
Though her skin color is made of many different shades, you are still "Brown Sugar"..........For many decades our world tend to forget Women of Color have Ruled it all! She was the First of her kind, though her complexion was darker than some she was the one who paved the way for others...
Look below and see how "Powerful "BROWN SUGAR" really was and Is still today.........
She was the First Woman to hold a Job: Brown Sugar was the first women to hold down a regular Job.Although she was place into the fields because of her skin tone, she held the title for women who had to work outside of her own home. And was paid very little wages for the work she did!
She was the First Cook: Brown Sugar had some "Mad" skills on how to prepare different foods we still enjoy! When you chew on Fried Chicken,Collard Greens,Rice with gravy know this she was up early in the mornings slaving over a Oven trying to prepare"Supper" for a family which was not her own. Her food was impeccable, and She begin to notice she had been given Ingredients in which God gave her to become a Brilliant Business women with a Niche for Good Old Soul Food Eateries. For her Brown skin paved her way and helped others as well.
She was the First Housekeeper: Brown Sugar knows how to clean a house. She was known to be the Servant, Slave or Help. She was told that she must scrub the floors, walls, dishes, countertops and wash all the linen and clothes several times a day. She was the first women to master her skill and take care of a big Fantasy Home, and she was left in charge to train other house helpers and was given full reign on how to organize her duties day after day.
She was the First Baby Sitter: Brown Sugar was told to nurse,bathe, watch and teach the children while the Mother was free to shop and tend to her husband so called needs. Brown Sugar became the first Women who Mothered Children in which she did not conceive and whom was not the same color of her Skin. She became the first caregiver.
She was the First Hairstylist: Brown Sugar had some "Mad" skills! She's trained herself to wear a fro or straighten her sheep textured hair. Many women became jealous of Her true beauty she possess and is still to this day. For she was the one who invented the straightening of the hair through the Stove in order to get her hair to look beautiful like other ethnicity. Her skills range from Braiding to Weaving and everything in between. And many cultures have adapted to her teachings!
She Is the First Woman of Faith: Brown Sugar talents have always shined higher than any North,South or Eastern star. She created Prayer and Worship. Her daily routine was to pray and sing old hymns as she hung clothes on the lines, and as she rocked the babies to sleep while their mothers took a nap. She always was and is the Greatest Prayer warrior of her kind.
Though she may have been the first women who told a man NO, Stop or I Can't, does not make her an enemies. Why do other Culture men hate her because she is not easily convinced. She has learned how to become a VirtuousWomen by the barren tone color of her skin. Though she may be different from other women doesn't mean she is not special as well. She may have an attitude and a different types of styling principles but it doesn't justify she's not equal to other women and race. Her Lips may be fuller and she may have a Curvaceous Shape but she is Still "Brown Sugar". Not one women should have ever been ridiculed because of her race. For it's God's choice that he made a shade deeper than others,not darker because we all well go back to the same dirt in which we were made. Next time you see her recognize, she's not just a Women of Color but she God's First Women of many shades and colors. She is the one who have suffered and reigned again and again! She Is a Nubian Queen from many tribes with many gifts and talents. For she shall be recognized as GOD's First Women of grace and her name is still "Brown Sugar"......
If you don't know, you better ask someone, She's Powerful and Beautiful and Her Name is "Brown Sugar" Because she have placed her Faith not in things but in values. Hopefully next time you look at "Brown Sugar" you witness the Queen from within!
When we learn to open our Eyes Up, We can spot the Beauty in All. I hope you enjoyed my blog!
