On this week's episode, we pick up Nish's suggestion of talking about "being a black women and stereotypes", and expanding it a little to talk about the "black girl magic burden. "Black Girls are Magic, originator @thePBG on twitter coined the phrase as a way to uplift black girls and women, but the phrase takes on a life of its on when women are constantly expected to "magically" work full time, run a household, care about their the boyfriend's mommas birthday, help their lil cousin find a job, be the "fun" friend and be a supportive and loving partner. This burden seems doubled as a black women when you have to care about all the challenges of living in a world that that doesn't value gender equality while fearing for the lives of black men and women at the hands of police. We talk about this burden and share strategies for balancing emotional labor.
