A Sensation of Black Women

Yesterday I created the collective noun for Black women while quote-replying to an awesome tweet. Check it out: https://twitter.com/AwakeBlackWoman/status/855644312888946688 I have no idea if we’ve been collective noun’d before and if so, what was the word chosen, but I think mine is pretty awesome! A Sensation of Black Women Here’s a a few from This List Of Collective Names For People: A lying of pardoners, a misbelief of painters, a superfluity of nuns (my fave, of course from that list lol!) Just when I’d decided to do stream of consciousness and/or news snippets from my life type of posts – designed to keep me from losing this writer’s block battle I’m continuously fighting – along comes my gorgeous brain and here we are! Since it’s my collective noun, I’ll set the rules. Where two Black women or more are gathered – doing ANYHING – you know, breathing etc. We are heretofore and henceforth deemed: A Sensation. My first thought since the original tweet was urging the media to hire Black women, I was thinking along the lines of 7-10 in one go. Imagine hundreds, thousands….. millions. ehhh been there, done that ;p ______________________________________
