Smaller waist. 
No boyfriend?
What’s wrong with you?

Don’t forget to suck in. 
Too much skin.

Bigger butt. 
Whi-Lighter skin. 
Her tan is flawless though.
Darker skin?? 
Bigger lips.
What kind of woman doesn’t want kids? 
Purple hair? 
That’s too ghetto.
That gut ain’t cute. 
Thinner nose. 
“I don’t date black woman because they too ghetto.”

What?

Not enough makeup. 
Too much makeup. 
Weave? 
You don’t love yourself.
Straight hair?
You don’t love yourself. 
You cut your hair?

What?

Natural hair is in. 
Use this. 
So it’s the RIGHT kind of curly. 
Still unprofessional though. 
Marriage soon? 
Wear heels.
No bodily functions around men. 
That’s not ladylike.
Wear this.

Be desirable.
Ok.
I love myself.
