We’re Going to Need More Wine–Gabrielle Union

This woman. THIS WOMAN. 

She’s a badass. BAD. ASS. 

You know when you see a book written by an actress and you’re like “Meh, I liked her. Maybe I’ll give it a read.” 

Well thank FUCK I DID.

This introduced me to a fucking FORCE of a woman. 

I learned so much from Gabrielle in this book that I never would have learned otherwise. Or at the very least got the perspective of! 

Gabrielle talks about what it means to be a woman, a black woman, and what that means as a stepmother for her children, what that means she’s looking out for, and so much racial bias and discrimination that I have never and will never have to endure because I’m a white woman. 

But fuuuuck did she open my eyes to some shit that I would never have thought of. 

Because I don’t have to. 

This body checked my white privilege hard. 

Her story is heartbreaking, beautiful, and a life of complete and utter badassery that I’ve never seen the likes of.

Fuck I love her. 

Read this book. Now. 

Constant vigilance!
