Don't worry, I think I've got at least a half dozen more Creflo Dollar posts left in me. Actually, not about Mr. Dollar, but the response to Mr. Dollar's alleged actions on the night he lost control of his rage and became violent towards his 15-year-old daughter. I asked readers over on the WAOD Fan page to drop some links about other stories affecting Black women and girls and this is what they came up with.
This first find is one I made on my own. It is a website called Spare the Kids: Helping Parents Who Hit and the Children Who are Hit, Rise above This Slave Heritage and Learn How to Change. The website is pretty self explanatory. I liked the cartoons on the site and even though I am childFREE, I learned a great deal from the cartoon strips. If spare the rod, spoil the child is the extent of the parenting skillset, then you suck as a parent and should probably consider acquiring additional skills.
Tonya shared this article from Jezebel complaining about the lack of Blakc mother's in movies. There's Just No Place for Black Moms in Hollywood. There is a simple solution for this, make our own movies.
Tracy B Shared a story about increased cancer rates for Black moms who don't breastfeed, High Cancer Risk in Black Moms Who Don't Breastfeed. But another reader was quick to point out major flaws in the studies. We're pretty much anti-study at this point because it's open season on Black women in the medical research community. We don't trust y'all anymore.
Have a great hump day!
