25 Positive Affirmations for African Americans
Here are 25 Positive Affirmations that I challenge African Americans to start repeating.  Let's use our words to change the atmosphere and bring good results forth instead of the negative portrayals of others.  This can be the start of an affirmative action plan.

What is an affirmation?
An affirmation is a positive declaration or assertion that defines a desired outcome. The affirmation is repeated often until the subconscious mind is transformed to believe it and receive it. 

With so many negative images portrayed in media, music and sometimes community, affirmations can be used as a tool for achieving success and improving your life.

More than ever, African Americans need to reinforce who they are and all the positive contributions they have made to the world.  Our words are powerful and they can build us up or tear us down.  It's time that we as African Americans start to consistently build ourselves up and reject the negative images portrayed in music, media, and talk radio
