(SingleBlackMom.wordpress.com) – When it comes to our children, Single Black Moms don’t take no mess so when the world saw Wanda Durant grab her son by the chin and pull him to her, they might not have been ready for what would come next but single Black moms everywhere understood.
Like a members of a tribe, we viewed that moment with a knowing pride, sense of redemption and renewed purpose. Every day we sing the blues – and relish in the joys – of being single Black mothers. We defy the stereotypes. We re-brand ourselves. We shutdown haters and build up our children.
Until Wanda Durant, we did that usually on a daily basis, often by ourselves on the most local of levels. But with the 2017 NBA Championship won by Mama Durant’s son, Kevin, single Black moms gained an international spokeswoman, a marketing ambassador and a sister in the struggle.

I met a social worker mom who – at first seemed very nice, caring and helpful. But, that didn’t last. Despite knowing that there was abuse happen, I watched her ignore it, find ways not to get involved and eventually just dump the person instead of do her job as a mandated reporter.
Ironically, I had very little positive things to say about social workers prior to meeting her. She had actually restored my faith in social workers only to discuss she is as bad as the others.
When social workers no longer care about the work, they should do us all a favor and just leave the profession for others who actually care.
