This was an email sent to me by my cousin Nik. She's always sending me some kind of crazy email, picture, game, etc. She helps to try and make my work days go by quicker.lolol I thought this was a very cute one. Its a poem written by a man. Please do not be offended because of its title. I really think that ALL women can definitely fit this poem, or should I say recipe.;o) So feel free to fill in words if you wish to switch it to fit you better. Enjoy!!

I'm making a black woman cake cause I'm hungry as hell. And the sweet tooth
I have only a sista can break the spell. Let me reach into my spice rack to
see what I can get. To make a mix that will stick to my stomach you can

2 cups of intelligence

1 cup of sugar brown
(Cause she's got to be sweet, mental, deep and sound)
Cinnamon is always good to accent the taste
A few cups of culture, so she's down for her race
(You see I won't bite into anything that's not conscious of its own, that's
why I stick to chocolate and leave angel food alone)
I am adding butter cause she must be smooth
2 raisins for the dimples will also be cool
I must add eggs so she can reproduce
(Can't leave her hanging cause I like children too)
I think I'll add a little salt, to balance her out
And a dominant profile, to show she has clout
For a responsible woman, I'll throw in some yeast
(So she'll swell with juices, when I'm ready to feast)
I'll add 7 cups of courage and into the oven to bake
Turn it to 360 degrees, To balance out her mental state.

Now that it's done brothas, I won't share her wealth, but I'm sharing the
recipe as I'm consuming this black woman all by myself.
Good Black Women are indeed all around us.
We pass them on the streets, in the malls, in captivity behind the walls,
and in the hall at work. Most we can't see because we don't know what a
good woman really looks like. She usually isn't flashy enough or rich
enough to turn our heads. She might not wear a fur coat or push a Lexus.
She might not have a "body by Fisher" or a face for "Ebony." But as you
mature, you realize it's better to find someone who's got your back than
someone who turns your head.

A Good Black Woman doesn't agree wholeheartedly with everything you say.
She doesn't just tell you what you want to hear and do the opposite. She
doesn't have to declare how sensitive, sweet, caring, sincere, yada, yada,
yada, she is (she won't have to...because it shows). She has her own
opinions, and you may clash, but she doesn't have to degrade you to prove
she's right. She even admits at times to being wrong, especially if you are
willing to do the same.

A Good Black Woman is not going to meet every item on your checklist. She
is human with frailties & faults mixed in with all of her wonderful,
sensual attributes. She needs your love & respect. She needs to feel that
you don't have to catch her doing something wrong so you can declare "Aha I
knew all along"

A Good Black Woman doesn't necessarily give you a huge Birthday or
Valentine gift. She shows her love in the ways that are comfortable to her.
Don't judge her by TV standards. No one is living that Fairy tale--for

BLACK WOMEN, we salute you, and thank you for who you are, and all you've
