Body Image: Is she slim, thick or fat?
Sometimes it feels like Black women can't win for losing when it comes to our bodies... Either we're too fat to be thick or too skinny and don't have enough ass to be slim-thick. When did the standard of beauty move from the seemingly unattainable to the damn-near impossible (without the help of a fat transfer or a Brazilian butt lift).
