Choice and Accountability

I work with a couple dozen teenage girls here in Los Angeles, and one of the things we talk about a lot is "choice and accountability" - making choices and accepting the consequences and results of our actions.

Today I ran across this video from an African-American woman calling out black women for the way they're treated by men. "We need some accountability," she says, claiming that many black women are making poor choices in the men they date and need to acknowledge those poor choices.
The video from Lydia Cotton is getting reaction from men and women of all races. The woman speaking claims that we need to treat ourselves better and allow men into our lives who will treat us well.

The video is ten minutes long. Let me know what you think.

Amen. Except I would add, love yourself enough to know that you are enough on your own .You don't need a man to tell you you're lovable or worthy. Tell yourself. Let the man come later, if he comes. But if he never comes, you'll still have a good life.
