Amanda Seales has used her social media platforms to clap-back at racism and sexism, share comedic stories, drop some stylish outfits and express her passionate opinions on a variety of subjects. Her voice aligns perfectly with many social media superstars who never shy away from sharing what they deem important and do so on their own terms.

Seale’s who most recent appearances include starring as the bad and bougie Tiffany DuBiois on HBO’s Insecure performs this original work without hesistance.  While performing, Seales stood solely on a BET stage with minimal lighting, only the tag #blackgirlmagic lit up in her background. The spoken word wonderfully uses African American Vernacular English, pop culture and historical references and an unapologetic vibe.

Watch the entire spoken word below:

(Feel free to repost) #BlackGirlMagic By: Amanda Seales First of all We make this look easy Us black girls with all kindsa curls Smellin a cocoa butter Out here every damn day savin the world. Time and time again We find the ways and means Between packing lunches, planning launches, and *act out* patting weaves To get information And stay in FORMATION, “Girl you heard what they’re sayin?” “Ain’t no games to be playin”. So we show up And show out And Turn up And, “turn this motha out” And flip it And Yasssss biiihhhh Throw sideyes Gather Get folks all the way together With edges still in place Skin defying time and space They call it magic cuz ain’t no way to explain our *sing* “amazing grace” How sweet the sound Of a black girl’s point of a view Knowing that nobody does it like we do, boo Pride in our power Strength in our strides You can attempt to imitate But soul you cannot buy. We work twice as hard And must be twice as perfect, Purveyors of potent truths We deliver in small doses Cuz folks is, shook when she’s movin “OH NO, IT’S ANOTHER ANGRY BLACK WOMAN!” Bump that We’re not hostile, We’re passionate; Clappin back is our way of declaring (claps) we aint havin it They go low, we go high They say no, we defy They didn’t want us to read Kept us out of libraries they built Now we are the biggest buyers of books So, we can read you for filth!!! Our magic is in our love and tears Our fears and our flyness Our sistahoods and insecurities Our ride or, don’t even try it. We are not the one, And still we rise, This is for colored girls who’ve considered gettin your life and are RECLAIMING OUR TIME Copywrite DivaWorks Inc 2018

    Yet another thing to mention is that an online business administration course is designed for people to be able to easily proceed to bachelor’s degree education. The 90 credit certification meets the lower bachelor diploma requirements then when you earn your own associate of arts in BA online, you’ll have access to the most up-to-date technologies with this field. Several reasons why students want to be able to get their associate degree in business is because they’re interested in the field and want to obtain the general knowledge necessary ahead of jumping right bachelor diploma program. Thanks alot : ) for the tips you really provide within your blog.
