Meagan and her sister have collaborated to reach young women and they hope to encourage them to go back to being good girls.

Actress Meagan Good is all about sisterhood, especially in the era of reality television and its often one-sided portrayal of Black women fighting and arguing with each other.
Good and her sister, La’Myia, are on a mission to change that with their philanthropic initiative, The Greater Good Foundation.
“I think a lot of what the media is sending to the kids these days is that, hey, you’ve got to dress like this. You’ve got to fight other women,” Good told BlackDoctor.org. “We just want to give them another option, like, OK, you don’t have to be a bad seed. You can be a good girl or you can take pride in loving yourself, respecting yourself…”
Through collaboration with the high-end fashion brand, Defend Paris, the Good sisters recently released a limited edition red and black flannel with “Defend Good Girl” on the back.
“Here’s this line of clothing that stands for something, that is about being strong in whatever your belief system or whatever it is you’re defending,” Good said. “So we were like, what about taking away the stereotype of a ‘bad b****’ and making it about the return of the good girl.”
Christians like her are weird. They say they love everyone and she’s talking about sisterhood, but she’s talking down to one group of women because of how they want to refer to themselves? It’s like she forgot what she used to be. She needs to humble herself. Women can label themselves what they want. I wish she was this preachy to men.
People grow. If you think, at 35, the same way you thought at 20, something is wrong.
But that’s my point! She changed, so why look down on other women who don’t share her beliefs right now? Maybe they will change one day too. That’s what “Christians” like her don’t seem to understand. Preachy people are annoying. They could help so many more people if they weren’t on high horses all the time. It’s like they don’t even know anything about who they serve (Jesus). He was nothing like that.
Meh, just like I don’t find it empowering to call myself a hoe, I also don’t think it’s cute to call myself a “b” either. But I do think the whole point of feminism is allowing women to label ourselves and empower ourselves the way we see fit. Meagan means well and I respect her for it.
But she’s a bad b-tch though. Lmao. Just bullsh-ttin. I f-ck with Meagan tho.
I agree with what she’s saying but shes the wrong person saying it seeing as people criticize her apparel all the time.
All of missed the whole point which is why we will always be down.
Speak for yourself ma’am. Black people are not a monolith. We can have different opinions and still do well in life. It’s not that serious.
