So, it’s no story I got married to a blued eyed, blonde American man and I get a lot of opinions daily about my choice of a partner.

‘Can’t believe you’re with him’
‘a nubian queen like you need some good D’ 😂
If you eat pineapples enough, you begin to smell like one.
I started to feel like a ‘sellout’,
Doubts and Questions Like ‘Korra,
if you are so black and proud, why did you marry ‘white’?

Then I remember, I didn’t choose love, Love chose me, it is divine and beyond me. And what I can’t control, shouldn’t make me feel less of me.
Today I reclaim my Blackness!
Who I choose to love doesn’t make me less black✊🏽.
Love who you want. Blue white or green. Love knows no color.

I am #blackAF straight from the motherland and that’s on my mother.”
