THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Righting the Story: The Blacker the Berry the Sweeter the Juice”

“Righting the Story”

You know I can do this all day long. I can tell stories like the one below all day long. While Bridgerton is a made up story the theme isn’t that far from the truth. I can prove in scripture that although a blonde blue-eyed woman is supposed to be today’s standard, that was not the case in the Bible. The Ethiopian, Shebite, Medianite, Hittite, & other blacker the berry sweeter the juice Black women were the prize. Kingdoms fell trying to get one of these Black women. Both tragedy and glory occurred in pursuit of these Black women. Matthew ch. 1 is packed with Black women in the bloodline of Jesus. Solomon was so smitten by one that he wrote one of the 66 books of the Bible about this sister.  The greatest biblical story on abstinence is about the wisest and richest man of color that will ever live trying to hold it together cause he wanted this cold black sister so bad. Yep, it’s time to right these stories. Black & White folks for different reasons need to know these truths. The only reason history gets buried is because the truth paints a picture that doesn’t fit the lie.
