21 Black Mama Sayings That We All Grew Up Hearing

No nonsense black mamas have a language of their own, and anybody who was raised by one will recognize it instantly. While I resent the idea that all black women are snappy and quick to anger, I do admit that we usually don’t take kindly to disrespect. It starts at home with our mothers and from the time we are young, they have a series of sayings we hear well into our adult years. I’m sure if you’re a mother now, you may find yourself saying the same things your mother said to you.
