Growing up, I didn’t appreciate publications that catered to girls that looked like me. I was so used to growing up and not seeing myself represented in the publications I loved, I thought it was normal to be excluded. Let me say that again: I thought it was normal to be excluded.

You need to fully understand that mainstream media is not designed for women of color. The system is not built to empower us.

We need to come together and start showing more support to the things that are for us by us, because no one can cater to you and your needs more than someone who lives the life that you do, just in different shoes. If mainstream media can’t be for us, we’ll forge our own lane to create captivating content and tell compelling stories. At least then, they won’t land on deaf ears or be told in vain.

This is why blogging and social media are so important. Your support of blogs and publications by women of color is imperative.
