That Time Twitter Got Exactly #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl

It's lit.

College student Jada Mosely wanted to foster community among black women online, so she created the hashtag #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl.

Black Twitter soon co-signed Mosely's sentiments and began sharing their own experiences.

Some of the Tweets were way too real...
