Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: Ladies First by Queen Latifah

23 Mar

queen-latifah-7 We are still honoring Women’s History Month with all women artists on WJSS Weekend Sounds in March.

Here’s Queen Latifah–I remember when I first heard and saw this  video on MTV way back when, I knew the Queen was going to be a force to be reckoned with.  Strong, bold, fresh, carrying herself with such confidence and dignity, she left me wanting more, and the desire to feel that I could be strong like her, and the women she rapped about.  Ladies First, indeed.

    Dear Wendy,
    Hello, there, Wendy! I absolutely love and am so, so very impressed with your great and super love and outreach toward black/African-American people and other people of African descent! You write so spectacularly and have a fantastic website! I am like you but toward the other way! I am a 52-years-old lesbian black/African-American woman who has for all of my life had an intense love and outreach for and toward white people, especially white women! I grew up in suburban Cleveland in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. At that time Cleveland Heights was a suburb with mainly white inhabitants. I am absolutely intense and committed to white people, especially to white women, and I have such an intense and ardent love for white people, especially white women! Wendy, you do such a fine and excellent job with your wonderful website, and your writings are so cool and marvelous! I will continue to for always to read your writings and to follow your great website! Also, thank-you so, so much for recommending Debby Irving’s superb book! I just love it, and you and Debby Irving’s book are helping me to understand better the white people, especially the white women, who I love and cherish a whole bunch! Thank-you, Wendy! You please have a very nice, special, and a very blessed day! Sincerely always, Sherry Gordon

      Hello Sherry,

      Wow, thank you, so so much for your words here. I feel so honored to receive your praise for my writings here. I loved hearing about your similar feelings “toward the other way” toward white women. It’s not something I hear all that often–as much as you hear white folks saying how much they love black culture, so thank you so much for sharing here, and for making it okay for me to say how much I love connecting with people of color, and learning about and sharing in their culture. To me, that’s what makes life rich–to connect with others different from us, yet, really the same, since we are all connected as one human race. I would love to talk to you more about your experiences, and your growing up in Cleveland Heights–please feel free to reach out by contacting me through the Contact page here. Thank you again, Sherry for reaching out with your kind words–you really made my day. And, I am so glad you found out about Debby Irving’s book Waking Up White–it’s a great account of her own personal journey in regards to race and race relations, and so a valuable read which we all can learn and grow from.
