Whew, you said what you said Sam! This is a brilliant dissection of patriarchy, quick confession — I had to Google ‘patriarchy’ to make sure I really got the meaning of the word #truestory. Anyway, I got it…and I’m so glad you included the part on how it relates to Black women. The tangled, mash up of racism and sexism or ‘misogynoir’ (thank you Moya Bailey for coining that word)if you will, is a truly — troubling disease that just won’t quit.

You may not like some of what you see in the mirror Sam, but being willing to look anyway and try to address it — rather than wish it away with denial, I say kudos to you. Thank you for sharing this PSA.
