Publisher's Summary

Years after the first black woman fought for independence and human rights, she was still victimized by insults and stereotypes that affect her self-confidence today. Black women are not bitches or hoes, however, the vices of the community and shameless acts of men, make many black women believe that their character should include these traits in order to be accepted. If a black woman behaves abnormal, she is being a bitch, if she sleeps with more than one man, she is a whore, and it is troublesome for men or world to use these connotations in reference to them.
Sadly, many black women being called these insulting names start believing that they are bitches or whores, and raise their daughters into believing that they need to be bitchy to get respect and a hoe in order to get paid or promotion. The consciousness of black America needs to be refocused so that black women and their daughters feel respected and honored to contribute positive things that uplift their people and country.
In addition, this book is about women sharing their experiences with you about people, friends, lovers, and society seeing, treating, or trying to make them bitches and hoes. Many black women become hoes because of low self-esteem, or circumstances that happen when they were children that altered their personalities. This book does not convey messages of how to treat a black woman like a bitch or hoe. Black women are sharing their experiences of how they were treated as such, but rose to the occasion and understood that they are too beautiful, strong, worthy, and full of love to be someone's ho or bitch.
