After reading this article I wholeheartedly agree with Ms. Cole here. Growing up as a black female in America we do not get as much positive light shined on us in the media. That’s another reason why I wanted to do my blog so bad. The fact that she is a white female writing this is what touches me the most because she gets it. We only have a handful of positive role models in the media for our next generation to look up to. So I am extremely excited about Black Girls Rock. Its not intended to knock anyone else it was simply to create and generate some pride for a black female in America.
