Cue Zhane’s “Hey Mr. DJ” because that’s how I felt reading The Nielsen Report that was released September 21, 2017.  It reminded black women how magical we really are in today’s society. Most importantly how instrumental we are in the economy. Because of our preferences, we are now the leading force in driving sales to a record-breaking 1.5 Trillion by 2021. We also learn in this report we account for 24.3 million women strong and black women account for  14% of the women in the country.

Now with all this “new” information, while reading I couldn’t help but say: DUH! Black women have always been leaders in what’s popular or trendy. We have some sort of innate magnetic pull to all things dope. The magic in which we possess has often been duplicated by our white counterparts (i.e. Kim K boxer braids), but underappreciated when black girls did them (any black woman with braids in corporate America). In 2017, it’s not hard to see that the average, black girl is winning. We are the largest group of people with higher learning degrees, which in turn has given us entrepreneurial success.

We have some sort of innate magnetic pull to all things dope.

With the success Issa Rae, has had digitally, Ava DuVernay in film, Debra Lee in music or even dope Youtube gurus like Yolonda Renee it’s apparent that black girls are winning. So Neilsen Report thank you for reminding us of our magic, but we told you so!
