black love

This beautiful Nubian sista found Love. But as usual, haters will hate. Let's do better in 2016. Don't we get enough hate directed at us from outside of our communities? We should Love and uplift each other.

Make a New Year's resolution to stop the black on black (hate) crimes. Let's kill each other with kindness instead of guns and knives and hateful words. We are all beautiful in God's eyes!

See you in 2016! Be safe and drink responsibly.
