The thoughts of a 40 something black mother and wife living in a post racial society.
The title of the blog “Not Your Baby’s Mama” use to be in reference to the idea that all black mother’s have chosen a life where they are not wives, but women who raise children by themselves. Yeah…I don’t care what you think anymore. Black women can be Baby Mama’s if they want. They can raise children with or without partners. They can do it all. Respectability politics are not welcomed in my 40s anymore. This blog is dedicated to the women like myself who are simply tired of not being represented.
So…here are my thoughts and a peak into my life as usually being the ONLY Black stay at-home mother.
