Black Mommy Breaking In!


There's been a lot of talk about being a mom lately and I for one am glad the conversation is being had. What conversation you ask? It's the conversation of inclusion and the Black Mom and I think today's the perfect time to discuss it! It's funny how the universe has a way of working things out at the most perfect times but before we get into all of that who's ready to talk about the new Gabrielle Union movie, Breaking In


This past weekend I knowingly and willingly headed out to catch my BFF in my head (Gabrielle Union) latest movie Breaking In. I had no idea hat to really expect from the movie because from the previews I can't say I was dying to see it. Can I just share with you all how this movie about a Black Mom willing to do any and everything for the safety of her kids and family got me all the way together! Gabrielle's character was smart, athletic, beautiful, calculated, mothering, and more! This my friends was the true definition of a Black Mom!  In other words I looked at this 90 minute movie an saw nothing but myself and the power that comes from being a Black Mom.

I know some of you might be wondering why the focus on her being a Black mom, oh I don't know but maybe it has something to do with the fact that as I sat in that theatre and thought back I think this may have been the first time I have ever recalled seeing a black woman take on a lead role kicking ass and taking names for her kids. I am also focusing on her being a Back Mom because I think all too often society forgets that the all too often pushed to the side Black Mom exists.

This movie couldn't have come at a better time. A time when I was I was recently blogging about being at a South Florida Disney on Ice event and being the only Black Mom in attendance, A time when several blogging moms decided to put together a conference consisting of nearly 100 speakers without a Black or Brown Mom even thought of, A time when we just witnessed a Black Mom make history by her daughter marrying into the Royal family, A time when we as Black Moms have to fight twice as much even in this thing called motherhood where there should never be any inequality! 

Yes there are differences between all races but one thing we all have in common as women is that we all love our kids and families. Your Love is no different from mine and if more Mom's or people in general took the time to see that the world would be a more loving place.

Have you had the pleasure of watching Breaking In?  Did you see yourself in the min character? What did this movie signify for you?
