Fairytales Come In Color, BLACK LOVE!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Every year I feature couples that represent Black Love, I’ve witnessed some amazing love stories. I could do a whole series on Black History Facts, but I elect to feature Black Love because frankly, I don’t see enough of it celebrated. There are strong marriages in our communities, their are relationships that have and are still withstanding the test of time. I want my children to see people that look like them in love. I want to give hope to my people that love is still possible and here it is. So enjoy the view, I know I am!

Baby while we’re young we should just have fun, We should just do whatever we want
And tell everyone that we fell in love with each other, Ooh, that we found the one in one another

When all the folks were said and done
You were there to welcome me home
I was convicted cause your love never wavered, I know you love me more than me
And you vowed to love through anything
I never had a kind of love that was forever

I’m so addicted to her she’s the sweetest drug,
Just enough
Still too much say that I’m simp and I’m sprung all of the above, I can’t help she makes me say (Oh oh oh), And I just can’t think (of anything else I’d rather do)
Than to hear you sing (sing my name the way you do)
When we do our thing (when we do the things we do)
Oh, babygirl you make me say (Oh oh oh)

    What a beautiful post. Anytime I see black Love celebrated it makes me happy. We need more of this shown in the world to hopefully erase the negative stereotypes other put out there.
