so, in case you missed it
Yendi Phillips dropped the news of her pregnancy mere moments ago.
and the interwebs shut down
and it got me thinking about a few things
BUT BEFORE THAT. LET ME SAY THIS
too many children come into this world to meet negative energy surrounding their existence. rarely are we shown examples of babies/pregnancies being celebrated. and even then…..its usually in people who had difficulty conceiving. i will not contribute to anyone starting their life in that type of atmosphere. i will not speak ill of a pregnancy. congrats yendi, and all di best.
anywho…it got me thinkin about
1)how we talk about celebrities
2)how we encourage caribbean men to underachieve through our own foolishness
3)how we mek it seem like caribbean family forms are somehow fundamentally wrong
and me nah seh growin up widout two parents is easy, or dat raisin a child alone is easy
but when we a go look pon we own ting and seh…yeh, is a way dis fi raise pickney…and it work?
