I was on the computer, I came across the article on the big ole butt. In the article you said (paraphrase) that successful women tend to be sick. Are you saying that these women should not try to
be successful? in my opinion if black women are overweight, they cannot blame the corporate lifestyle, they have to blame themselves. We are all in control of our own lifestyle, those same corporate
black women, if they were working 9-5 at some factory somewhere, they would still be fat. I do agree with you when you stated that many black women lack will power to fast. I think that we lack will
power to do anything that is beneficial to us. Yes I do agree with you that the steatopygia female does look like a “pig”. their faces tend to take on pig like facial features. Yes you are right that
miss steatopygia tends to wear tight pants, (in my opinion that type of backside is stinky looking). So yes there is some parts of the article I do agree with. Far too many of us black women, tend to
be stubborn and too defensive. I am glad that your site does exist, because far too many sites like to blame “whitey”. You are one of the few black health specialists, that put the blame on us, and
you should because our lifestyle is our responsibility.

No, these women should BECOME successful, but not lose their health and/or souls in the process of becoming successful. The corporate sector has played a great “role” in Black women gaining weight
because the jobs are too sedentary and they have access to too much sugary junk which converts to fat because corporate jobs don’t allow them to burn off the fat. I’ve seen this firsthand with many
once fine sisters who blew up like houses within a 5 year period. Corporate America was the venue in which Black women CHOSE to let their health go by the wayside, at least the majority of them.
