A I started to watch the video it had powerful woman that helped make America what it is today.But when I read the lyrics it talks about how ladies should be put first because man can live without us and how we are the birth giver.They also talk about how a woman can take care of herself with no ones help.One thing I continuously see they rap about is how a woman can be whatever she wants to be even a rapper and men should just stop saying woman can not rap.
The Color Purple is a novel that takes place in 1982 where a black woman was basically her "husband" would raped and make her over work in the field.Thats's unfair why would you make a woman go though slavery but her master is black that crazy.

Black woman and their hair had to go though so much, it had it's ups that being in the 60's the time black grow their hair out to show power, pride, and so many other things, but there was downs too.Like times when they had to cut off their if a white woman did not like it,🙄.They even had a law called the Tignon Law where black woman HAD to have their hair tied down to not be seen.How dared they make that law.But the joke is on them all those times you had us blacks wear wigs to fit in or braid our hair to put our head tie on we had braids in, that's protective styling which makes our hair stronger and longer.

This poem is about how a woman can be phenomenal and the different ways that she is. "Men themselves have wondered What they see in me."That it is not about her body shape or what she wears it is about what's is on the inside and that is why men will SECRETLY love you so don't worry about your skin or you thick lips.
