Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A couple of months ago,  I saw a picture that really disturbed me. It was a picture of a Sister that had a tattoo on her chest, and the tattoo was that of a specific part of the male anatomy and she boasted about a certain “skill set.” I thought to myself, how did the state of the Black Woman get to this?
