Of course, I’m a proud Baylor alum and give them love here whenever I can. AND I hope you regularly visit the Essence page of my site.
This weekend, the Editor-in-Chief of Essence Magazine, Constance White, one of the most dynamic people I know, took on some of the nasty things people have said about Brittney. She did so in the most elegant way, all while pointing out what life lessons we can take from the way Brittney carries herself.
She calls it the “Power of So What?”
Here is part of what White wrote:
“She is unusually tall. So what?
Usually lanky. So what?
She has an usually deep voice. So what?
Some have said she looks like a man. I say she looks like a human.
But what’s really important and real here? She can still play basketball better than most. She seems amazingly hardworking, fun and levelheaded.
So what if she looks a little different? We can all take a lesson from Griner, a young woman of great poise.
She hasn’t let self-consciousness or other people’s discomfort, mess or rudeness stop her. She is the one defining what she should focus on.”
