Africa, Memes, and Oprah Winfrey: Oprah Winfrey on Getting Pregnant After Being Raped By A Family Member At 14: "I Wouldn't Have Been a Good Mom for Babies 33 @balleralert Oprah Winfrey on Getting Pregnant After Being Raped By A Family Member At 14: “I Wouldn’t Have Been a Good Mom for Babies” - blogged by: @msjennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1968, at the age of 14, OprahWinfrey gave birth to a premature baby boy who died in the hospital weeks later. For years, the media mogul withheld her story to protect herself from the judgment of others. However, when the news broke in 1990 of her pregnancy and subsequent loss, after the initial feeling of devastation and betrayal, Winfrey finally felt free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, almost 50 years since giving birth after having been raped by a family member, Winfrey reveals that she’s completely okay with the fact that she doesn’t have any children of her own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” Winfrey said in the April Issue of GoodHousekeepingUK. “I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead, Winfrey says she already a mother figure to the “world’s children” in her Leadership Academy boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children,” she said. “Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20. If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined,” Winfrey said of the school. “I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain,” she added.

Baller Alert, Black History Month, and Memes: Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by- @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that RubyBridges, now 62 and the first African American child to attend an all-white public school, was born the same year that the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decided to desegregate the schools? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Ruby was in kindergarten, she was one of many African-American students in New Orleans who were chosen to take a test determining whether or not she could attend a white school. It is said the test was written to be especially difficult so that students would have a hard time passing. The idea was that if all the African-American children failed the test, New Orleans schools might be able to stay segregated for a while longer. Ruby lived a mere five blocks from an all-white school, but attended kindergarten several miles away, at an all-black segregated school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1960, Ruby Bridges' parents were informed by officials from the NAACP that she was one of only six African-American students to pass the test. Ruby would be the only African-American student to attend the William Frantz School, near her home, and the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in the South. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The image of this small black girl being escorted to school by four large white men (pictured above) inspired Norman Rockwell to create the painting "The Problem We All Must Live With," which graced the cover of Look magazine in 1964.
