A young black student was asked to lower her self-esteem because some of her white classmates were scared of her overflowing confidence.


Last Wednesday, a woman named Jacquelyn Nietzsche shared a screenshot of the e-mail sent to her by her daughter Mariah's teacher, asking her to speak to the child about a certain "misbehavior". While many parents would be concerned after reading such an e-mail, Nietzsche couldn't help but laugh.

According to the teacher, Mariah was running around the classroom during their free play time, screaming "I have Black girl magic" to her white female classmates. To end the post, the teacher lauded Mariah for being empowered but was concerned that the other girls cried. That was the reason she had to request the mother to talk to the young girl.


Responding to the e-mail thread, Jacquelyn said: "First of all, what the [expletive] is wrong with my child?" with a laughing emoji that followed.


“I’m writing to you out of concern for an incident we had in class today with Mariah,. During our free play time, Mariah was walking around the classroom yelling ‘I have Black girl magic’ to white female classmates. While we want Maria to feel empowered this made some of the other girls cry. I hope that you would be wiling to speak with her about this.”

To date, Nietzche's posts have over 2000 likes and 7000 shares. Comments on the post have praised the young girl for oozing with self-confidence, as this is not something you always see with young black women. Some have also questioned why such a statement made white girls cry, as she did not say anything offensive.


In the end, Mariah has been encouraged to say it loud and proud that she does indeed have "Black girl magic".
