Baby got back.

I'll never forget one of my very first days at school here in New York when a girl by the name of Gina (who was of African American descent) clicked her pen on my butt and said, "Girl, you got a black girl's booty." I was mortified. I used to just be this skinny, little bean pole from Texas. And I liked that. Well, somewhere along the way I developed an ample (not too ample, but nice and shapely) behind and I've never fully embraced it. 

Well...

It's a new day indeed.

I saw this picture of Michelle Obama in Vogue and  thought, if the first lady is gonna rock out her derriere then it's practically a presidential edict and thus my responsibility as the good, true American I am to embrace my God given asset. 



I mean...look at her...she's divine.

I'd rather have a bootie than a flatty.
and yes, Mrs President does rock it.

I am so happy to see I am not the only one who says "of African American descent."

Rock that behind! I'd rather have a too-big-butt than a no-butt any day!
