If you don’t know breast milk is the best milk and over the weekend 25 year-year-old Karlesha Thurman posted a photo of herself breast-feeding her baby at her college graduation ceremony. Karlesha Thruman who attended California State University, Long Beach graduation received a lot of backlash for that. She posted the photo to a page called Black Women Do Breastfeed. This page celebrates black women who opt out of formula and use the natural source; the breast. The photo went viral once posted. Some felt that this was not normal and blasted the young mother.

This is my opinion. Breast milk for me is the best source for a newborn, infant, toddler, etc. unless the mother has other complications. Now when I read some of the comments I could not help but think is it the fact that her breast was out a little or some people believe she should not have been breastfeeding her child at a graduation at all. The question is, where was she supposed to feed her baby? Do you believe she should have left? Perhaps a blanket should have been put over her.
