Kallaloo 4 De Soul | iChunes Ent. Magazine The Rebirth of the Strong Caribbean Woman WHILE struggling with the reality of being a human, instead of a myth, a strong Caribbean woman passed away. Medical sources said she died of natural causes, but those who knew her said she died from being silent, when she should have been screaming!!!! Smiling, when she should have been raging from being sick and not wanting anyone to know, because her pain might inconvenience them. She died from an overdose of negative people clinging to her soul, when she didn't even have energy for herself…from loving men who don't love themselves, and could only offer her a crippled reflection. She died from raising children alone as a single parent….died from hearing the truth from her wise grandmother who told her about her mixed culture. The strong Caribbean woman is dead. She died from being dragged down and sat upon by bald women posing as her sistas and friends….died from tolerating Mr. Pitiful, just to have a man around the house. She died from sacrificing herself for everyone and everything when all she really wanted was to be accepted as just a woman from the Caribbean. She died from not being allowed to show her weakness without being chastised by the lazy and hazy…died from hiding her real feelings until they became hard and bitter enough to invade her room and breast like Angry tumors! She died from being too Caribbean and died again from not being Caribbean enough…..died from being misinformed about her mind, her body, culture and the extent of her royal capabilities. And sometimes when she refused to die, or just refused to give in, she was killed by the lethal image of not recognizing her true beauty, golden locks of hair, high cheekbones, vibrant lips of color. She died because she did not realize she was the giver of life, the Heart and Soul of her family. She died because her life could not be an open book, and was stomped to death by racism and sexism, executed by Hi-Tech ignorance while she carried the family in her belly, the Caribbean community on her head and the ethnicity of our culture on her back! She died because she was judged by the color of her skin, by the texture of her hair, or how she speaks with the accent of her cultural heritage! Yes, this strong Caribbean woman is dead! Or is she…..This Caribbean woman rose from the dead, because she realized that she defines who she is and how she wants people to see her when she stands tall in her COMMUNITY, in her FAITH, in her TRUTH, and most of all in her CULTURE! I am a woman of the Caribbean. I share this with Caribbean Women, and Christian Women everywhere……. ~ Written by Mea Allman, ichunes Ent. Magazine Managing Editor 21 January / March 2018
